(Less Than) 30 Days Out From Christmas: Yuletide Tales

Posted in 30 Days Out (From Christmas) with tags , , , , , , , , on December 9, 2012 by 30daysout


In the weeks before Christmas, it’s kinda tough to get the kids calmed down. They’re rabid with anticipation, giddy with thoughts of Santa – more likely, fueled by so much caffeine and greed they could stay awake until Memorial Day.

So why don’t you gather them around for a little story? It doesn’t have to be a spoken word story – plenty of Christmas tunes tell their own little tales. But a good, long tale … why, that’s enough to send even the toughest kid into Dreamland.

Santa ponders Tiger Woods' Christmas list

How can Christmas be so close?  It was just the Fourth of July … or it seems like that.  Waitin’ for that next paycheck to roll around before we get out in the trenches for some combat shoppin’.  No time, no time.  But there’s always time for a few songs.
