The Reindeer Games Save Christmas at the Mission Open Air Market
If you are not aware, let me aware you: among all the wars we are fighting (the war on drugs, the war on terror, the war on women, Food Wars, etc.) we also have a War on Christmas.
You might be asking yourself: "Hollis, what oil or natural resources does Christmas have that is worth going to war over?" The simple, mature answer is: Santa Clause. There are people in this country who hate Santa Clause's freedom. We intend to defend Christmas to the last ugly sweater and branch of poisoned mistletoe above the kitchen threshold.
The first battleground we fought to defend Christmas was at the Mission Open Air Market in South San Antonio yesterday morning. Yes, in front of the Mission Cafe with coffee cups drawn and our wives and fiances in attendance, we sang creamy eggnog Christmas melodies and laid down some sick Reindeer hoof beats for the shoppers in attendance that morning. Along the way, I took time to remind shoppers of the upcoming holiday.
Hollis: "Ladies and gentlemen, just to remind you: there are only 8 days until Christmas. If you haven't finished your shopping, this needs to happen NOW. What are you people doing? All the Christmas presents are nearly gone! At this rate, you'll have to just get the used circular saw blades available in booth 8 as stocking stuffers."
We had fun at the Mission Open Air Market and are looking forward to the next mission to save Christmas at the Bexar Pub on Dec. 23rd! We also put together a little Christmas recording and it is available on Bandcamp and embedded below. Have a great week! Get your shopping done!
