‘Tis The Season (For G-Man's Flash Friday 55)

‘Tis the season, or so the songs say
That ever-impending December holiday

Time for braving the winter gales
Seeking out those great Black Friday sales

A plastic manger?  Now don’t you scoff
I got this deluxe baby Jesus half off!

Who says Christmas needs a reason?
Just go buy stuff!  For ‘tis the season

You too can join in the fun with G-Man's Flash Friday 55


  1. ERIC!!!!
    This is TWO weeks in a row that you didn't link yourself in on Friday.
    Nobody knows you are here!
    Please do so because your 55's are always Right On and meaningful
    Loved your Holiday Shopping 55
    Thanks for playing, don't forget to link, and please have a Kick Ass Week-End

    1. Sorry, G-Man! My boss brought me some actual WORK to do first thing this morning, so I never had the chance to link up. (At least I got it posted!)

  2. I'd be glad to go out and buy stuff. If I had the money.

  3. This is perfect. Sums up my feelings better than I could myself. I know lots of people who buy stuff on sale just because it's on sale. Don't they realize what a gimmick the whole thing is?

  4. This is a cautioary tale, I think. What we want Christmas NOT to be.

  5. I remember reading this… thought i commented. (I actually have a plastic Jesus - it's the manger all my kids have played with… Now, if a dinosaur or two end up with them, well that's OK :)


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
