Blue Christmas?

December 22nd, 2004 · No Comments

According to the last weather forecast I heard, it won’t be a white Christmas here. No snow. Yet it may be an equally rare day for December 25th in Seattle – a sunny one. Perhaps we should call it a blue Christmas instead…


we’ve enjoyed excellent weather so far this week…apologies to those in colder climates…;-)

Two Christmas posts that caught my eye:

Ed Cone wrote a column that, in a sense, answered my three questions of Christmas sharing his thoughts about the holiday and its celebrations: Go ahead and wish me a Merry Christmas:

Another economic perspective on parenting in Why Preach Santaism:

As should be evident, we don’t practice Santaism in our household. It’s not just that the costs outweigh the benefits for us parents, either. We think that exploiting the trust of your kids, setting them up for an inevitable and heart-breaking disappointment, imposes large net costs on them.

And all that heartbreak would be a blue Christmas indeed….yes, that awful Elvis song comes to mind…. it’ll be a blue Christmas without you…
