What I wanna know is - Why 'be jolly' just this season?
Why not 'be jolly' all year long?
Why doesn't 'peace on earth, good will towards men' last all year?
Why don't we 'don our gay apparel' all year long - okay, it's a little hot in July for mittens and a touque, but, there's surely summer weight gay apparel out there, in vertical stripes that flatter. There has to be. If not someone should invent some.
Why all the pretty lights and tinsel for a piddly 3 - 4 weeks? Why not all year? Just take it up a (k?)notch in December.
Why don't we get all worked up and excited about April 16th? Or, or August 23rd.
Give the Wal-Marts and the Targets and the Sears the go ahead to start promoting the wonder that is June 19th and watch the consumers flood through their doors to buy, Buy, BUY!!! Intent on getting that perfect gift for Aunt whatshername with the sticky candy dish. Or Cousin whozzitz that collects those thingamajigs. Or a whirlygig for old Uncle so'n'so who smells suspiciously of urine all the time.
I'm not exactly sure what the point of all this is but, I'm now on a mission to find nifty summer weight 'gay apparel'. Come July, ho-ho-ho will be replaced with hot-hot-hot.
Good Gift Hunting to those of you still shopping. May you find the right gifts in the right sizes, in the right colours and in the right price ranges for your budgets.
