A Christmas Letter from Paul

Okay, I’m all for making a buck but I think things are really getting out of hand. Have we really gotten to the point where we need to start thinking about Christmas shopping the day after Halloween? And for that matter what’s up with Halloween junk the day after Labor Day? Aren’t things moving fast enough?
Yeah, and since when has gift “giving” been so efficient? Now we get e-mails with URL’s that take us to a web store page with a note that says: “Get This!” That’s not gift giving; that’s order taking. I mean did Mary and Joseph sit around thinking of things the Wise Men could bring the baby Jesus when he was born? No. Those Wise Men traveled a long way schlepping all that frankincense and that myrrh stuff – whatever that is. It’s not like they could give them a call. No, they just took a chance. All they knew is they had to give him something.
I know the new way is easier and all that but whatever happened to getting Uncle Joe a tie that he will never wear? Those were the days!
That’s the trouble you, know. We all have too much to think about and we’ve become easy prey to the ambitious retailers.
“Buy now!” – everywhere!
If I hear “HUGEEE-GE-A!!!” one more time I think I will… I don’t know what. The least he could do is dress up like Santa, right? I’m just saying, enough already.
Oh, before I forget, if you are thinking of getting me a little something this Christmas, www.orvis.com/woolvest!
Don’t you just love the internet?
Merry Christmas everyone!
