Who’s Up For A Second Christmas?

Christmas, humor, Modern PhilosopherMerry Christmas, Modern Philosophers!

I had an intriguing idea, and I thought I’d break the monotony of my lonely Christmas by sharing it with you in a blog post.

Normally, I’d label this a brilliant idea, but with the way things have been lately, I have lost faith in the power of my ideas.  I blame it on the isolation and social distancing.  There’s no one around anymore off which I can bounce my ideas.

Yes, I had to send away the blog interns.  They left kicking and screaming (I’m sure you can imagine how attached they’d become to me), but in the name of public safety, they had to go.  It’s impossible to maintain proper social distancing, even with masks, when the interns are always hanging on my every word, and trying to stay close in hopes of having my wisdom magically transfer to them.

So this idea might be brilliant, or it might be totally lame.  All I do know for sure, though, is that writing this blog post is a great way to pass some time when I’m sitting here alone on Christmas.

Christmas, humor, Modern PhilosopherI’m not sure if I’ll have to run this one past Santa Claus or President Biden, but I’m certain some powerful old guy will have to sign off on it.

Seeing as how crappy Christmas was this year due to the Coronavirus, I’m proposing that we celebrate it again in about six months once the vaccine is readily available, and the number of daily cases has decreased considerably.

We probably should have some sort of national celebration once COVID-19 has been vanquished, so why not a Second Christmas?

Has anyone really been in the Christmas Spirit this year?  I’m sure some people ignored the CDC’s pleas to stay home and limit holiday celebrations, but most of us probably didn’t enjoy the holiday with loved ones as we normally would.  And all those Christmas movies and specials just didn’t have the same impact this year, did they?

So let’s have a Christmas Do Over!

Christmas, humor, Modern PhilosopherLet’s deck the halls all over again.  I’d love to welcome carolers on my porch sometime this summer.  And I certainly want to enjoy all the Christmas baked goods that didn’t get brought into the office this year for safety reasons.

Best of all, the interns will be back, so they can wrap all the presents, decorate the tree, and take care of the baking!

Would you support the idea of a Second Christmas once it’s safe for us to gather and be joyful again?

    I vote yes!

  2. Yes, great idea. I’d give it a “High Five” when it’s safe to do so. August has no real national celebrations so I suggest August 2021 become “The August Austin Festival of Lights Celebration

  3. Glad to be of service, since all your interns are not available.

    I live in Italy, where August is a huge month for Festivals. I think it would be wonderful to incorporate Christmas in the mix! I vote yes!

    I say let’s do it!

    I’ll settle for a everybody having had their vaccine so we can celebrate with a big national hootenanny on July Fourth, Austin.

  9. We are having Christmas in July this year! Miss the family we usually share Christmas Eve with, and there’s always the grab bag that must be included….
