It’s the holiday season and there are a lot of Christmas things I don’t get.
For instance, I don’t get the song, “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas”. Really? Who wants a hippopotamus for Christmas? Is there some hidden meaning to the lyrics? And why does the singer sound as if a hippopotamus sat on her throat?
There are other Christmas things I don’t get, too. Thus, I’m sharing my list below for a laugh and possibly commiseration. It’s the holiday edition of the original things I don’t get shared last summer. You’re welcome and all that.
Nope. I don’t like the way it tastes. It’s loaded with calories, too. So, to me it’s like if broccoli had 1,000 calories per serving.
It’s neither fruit nor cake. It’s like days-old bread. I guess before the days of CVS and chocolate bars, you had to use up your leftovers in bread that you gifted to your friends and neighbors. Yikes.
“Let’s put a famous actress in a ballgown surrounded by a helicopter, tiki torches, and clowns dancing in Jello. That’ll sell millions of bottles, yeah.”
Luxury car commercials
Okay, okay, maybe I’m just jealous. I know I’ll never walk into my driveway to find a Lexus underneath a big red bow. Maybe I’ll get a Ford Fiesta in my stocking one year.
Dollar store tape
I learned the hard way wrapping Christmas presents that this stuff doesn’t work. It sticks okay, but I’ve scraped all of my knuckles off and instigated carpal tunnel syndrome just trying to tear it.
8,000 movies in December
There are at least 4 movies I want to see this December and I’ll probably have time to see one. Hey, movie companies, I’d love to see a movie in January, February or March. Can you please release some good ones then instead of all at once in December?
There you have it, Christmas things I don’t get. What about you? What holiday happenings or items make you scratch your head in bewilderment?
