Hello and welcome to the Robot Hand Christmas season! I will have several treats for you every day in December until that special day!
The first treat, which will be daily, is a look inside the Winnie the Pooh Advent Calendar! No, I'm not making the yuletide gay, so to speak. I no longer eat chocolate, so my mom got me a different advent calendar instead, and I'm passing the savings on to you! Every day, a new and heartfelt quote from the fine folks at Hallmark.
The second treat, also daily, will be Christmas music. I have quite a line-up for you. Some of them will be old-timey classics, some of them will be new songs, and some will be bizarre. However, all of them will be 100% Spoodles Guaranteed*.
The third treat, which will be intermittent, will be Christmas-type stories. These could be movie reviews. They could be album reviews. They could just be particularly fond memories. They'll be around, though.
What's that, you say? I'm seven days late to the party? Well, that's okay, because I'm sevendaysing it today, just for you!
*Not a guarantee.
Pooh and Roo made popcorn strings. Oh, what fun this season brings!
Ren and Stimpy: Fleck the Walls
I thought I'd start this puppy out with a little class, and nothing says classy like rhyming "nipples" with "cole slaw." Try to find that in your favorite Perry Como classic!
It's fun and not so very hard to make a cheerful Christmas card.
Band Aid: Do They Know It's Christmas?
'Tis the season for guilt, guilt, and more guilt. You can either keep avoiding the Salvation Army bell-ringers by pretending you're talking on the phone, or you can imagine you give two good damns about starving children in Africa! Tonight, thank god it's them instead of you!
Once the sun is out of sight, candles bring a warm-ish light.
Vince Guaraldi Trio: O Tannenbaum.
The way I see it, either you love the soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas or you're a Nazi sympathizer. Your choice.
Homemade ornaments are fun. Maybe YOU could help make one.
Bing Crosby: White Christmas.
This is the ultimate version of one of the best Christmas songs. Very few songs I'll present to you this month will deserve that many italics.
A glowing fire, all nice and cozy, warms your face and hands and toes-ies!
James Brown: Hey America!
Part Christmas message, part social statement, and all funk! Don't you think it's about time?
Frosted cookies on a dish make Eeyore feel less gloomy-ish.
Kathie Lee Gifford: Silver Bells.
Yeah, I know she's a wretch. However, let us be thankful for that incorrigible Regis, who crashes the party and ruins Kathie Lee's Christmas spirit.
"Oh dear," says Pooh. "Dear me," says Roo. "So much shopping still to do!"
Mariah Carey: All I Want For Christmas Is You.
Yeah, I like this song. You can shut your yap pretty much whenever.
