On the Holiday Shopping Season 2012

I grew up with a commercial like that one. For me, the official start of the holiday season was seeing Santa on a Norelco. Fortunately, the glories of YouTube now allows me to relive that tradition!

Hope everyone had a bountiful Thanksgiving. For my international audience, that means we ate enough to cover your share as well.

For some, Thanksgiving also means Black Friday, thus the race to the stores for holiday shopping. Interestingly, give thanks for what you have on one day, and less than 24 hours later – race, push, and do what you must to get more. Ah yes – very American. However, I stay away from a major shopping area on this days!

The holiday season brings a certain level of craziness. No matter what one says after the previous year, events as the shopping rush, holiday parties, musical events, visiting lights, baking, and whatever sends many into a frenzy.

For me, this song captures the mood – both the festiveness and the frenzy of the season. Ladies and Gentleman, another A Frank Angle holiday tradition, the fast-paced Wizards in Winter by the outstanding Raleigh Ringers. The ringers on the left side wearing me out just watching them. Enjoy!
