Delusions and an early humbug

Just saw a commercial for Hallmark's newest piece of singing stuff. The Very Merry Trio.

In this commercial, a bunch of people are upset because the airline has just announced delays on their Christmas travels. (Really?? NO!) "Mom" pulls out The Very Merry Trio.

Suddenly, the waiting area is focused on the Trio. Everyone is smiling, the Christmas spirit is in the air. The attendant at the gate announces boarding, and no one hears him.

Yeah, right.

I don't mean to sound all humbug already--before Thanksgiving has even passed. But really, things like that don't happen, even during the holidays. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and not just because of my faith. I just love the season, the way my family is, that my brother's home, the music, the weather...oh I love Christmas time.

But I'm here to tell you, if I was flying somewhere and learned that my flight was delayed and someone wipped out The Very Merry Trio, I wouldn't be smiling at it. I'd stuff my ear buds deeper into my ears, and put my nose further into my book.

And grumble.
