I know, a weird title isn’t it? This one is just begging to be written, silly and somewhat funny. The idea for this one came from seeing a neighbor of mine wearing a Santa Hat. I know, my mind works in mysterious ways…I just can’t explain it. Anyway, this one is the wacky and kind of bizarre things people put on their heads during the Christmas time. Santa hats, those cute little sets of reindeer antlers, elf hats…You get the idea, right? This is not meant to be insulting or hurt the feelings of those who do enjoy doing this.
I for one will not be decking myself out in any such thing…It will mess up my hair for one! That was a joke, the real reason is I just cannot pull off the look. OK, I will be honest…It brings back some childhood memories. You have to understand, Autumn and I have some highly amusing sisters. I know they would both just have a fit I shared this one…But I will be hoping they don’t see fit to read this one.
One year, when these sisters were of quite young ages they both fell in love with sets of those reindeer antlers. OK, so they were good at sweet talking Dad and Mom into each being given a pair. Autumn and I being older, were of course far too dignified to wear such things. We humored the little sisters and told them they looked cute. Big mistake…Since they had been told by others how adorable they looked, too. They took to wearing them non-stop and I am not kidding either, it got seriously irritating…
For one thing they took to prancing around like they thought real reindeer might do. It was just too much sometimes, they even made up cute reindeer names…No, not any of the normal ones either. They christened themselves Princess Jingle and the other one Princess Bell. How original is that? We weren’t supposed to laugh at that! Oh come on, they named themselves after a Christmas song! Dad and Mom went along with it much better than the twinnie and me. Well, until those little sisters refused to answer to their real names anyway. All the prancing, the silly names, wearing the reindeer antlers 24/7…You just had to be there, so annoying.
Anyway, the reindeer antlers were taken away until they decided to turn themselves back into little girls. They both sulked and pouted…But after not quite a full day they gave in. Dad and Mom were staying firm and those little sisters knew it! They agreed to go by the rules, the prancing and fake names were under control and peace was restored somewhat in our household. It was a very strange year, that’s all I have to say and Autumn will agree! 😉 🙂
