No, not Black Friday – I avoid that.
… The Reindeer is Back!
Since 1985, I have worn my reindeer pin, starting on the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas Day.
No it’s not Rudolph (there is no red nose.)
Back then, I wanted to express my enthusiasm for this time of year, in my own subtle way. That enthusiasm continues today.
I bought the pin at Bell, Book and Candle in Kona, I picked it out myself. (Unfortunately, the store has long since closed.)
I also wear Reyn Spooner Christmas Shirts from now ‘til Christmas (my Reyn’s Christmas Shirt collection includes all of their Christmas shirts, from 1983 through 2019.)
I look forward to this tradition.
Of course, some folks may think it’s dorky for some old guy to be wearing a cartoonish reindeer brooch on his chest.
I am sorry they don’t enjoy the season like I do; hopefully, they’ll lighten up.
Anyway, today the pin made its annual debut.
I Love This Time Of Year.
Merry Christmas Everybody!
