Happy Saturday And Santa is a Homie

It's hard to tell that it's Christmas time here in Sunny southern Ca so the Decorations on the topiary dolphins in Corona Del Mar always gives an indication. Seriously, there were Christmas lights up in October and it made me want to scream. The Holidays just blur together and you don't get a chance to enjoy each of them singularly. The Grocery store was setting up displays and stocking the Christmas candies on Thanksgiving day.



I just found the most offensive yet funny Christmas item today. While walking around the grocery store we saw this. I had to go out to the car and get the camera to take a picture and a little video to share with you.


Hey, the packaging said to "TRY ME!"

Santa is a Homie with his Polar-Posse...
I guess the band "War" never imagined their song ever being used to represent a questionable Christmas toy.

Yes we laughed at this because its just so wrong. They even used a mid 60's Chevy Impala. The hydraulic suspension an undercarriage lights were just bonus.

Not much else of importance happened today but I'm hopeful for tomorrow.

Life is Good

  1. Your stores waited until Thanksgiving to put up the Christmas stuff? Ours started around 15 minutes after the last trick-or-treater went to bed. Sad.

    That non-PC Santa, however? Hilarious! Yeah, my judgment is probably being swayed because the car is red...

  2. You are right. Commercialism is ruining the holidays for most of us.

    That toy is so wrong! But funny at the same time. Is it wrong of me to feel that way?

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for sharing and I agree, I think our stores started putting out the Christmas items when they put the Halloween items on clearance. Thanksgiving was totally skipped.

    I don't do (and never have) the 'black Friday' deal. After reading about several incidents with riots and people getting trampled underfoot, I never will.

    This isn't what Thanksgiving or Christmas is all about. Is any wonder other countries have such a poor opinion of Americans, when these are the headlines now a day?

  5. The scary thing is, I totally know someone who would love Santa and his polar possee. :-)

    Personally, I'd love for a law that prevented Christmas decorations in shops before December 1. I won't hold my breath.

  6. That is the best Christmas toy! It almost beats the Santa on a Harley stuff my neighbors had out last year.

  9. My DH would love the Santa Homie with his Polar-Posse! He has soooo many weird and freaky stuff. I am not sure that he likes it or that the kids have decided that it is so bizarre that he SHOULD like it!
