December is a busy month, as far as holidays go:
Christmas (December 25), Hanukkah (starts at sundown on December 11), Kwanzaa (starts December 26), the Winter Solstice (December 22, the longest bigfoot feeding night of the year), Bathtub Party Day (December 5), Put on Your Own Shoes Day (December 6), Human Rights Day (December 10), Las Posadas (el 16 de deciembre), Boxing Day (December 26), National Bicarbonate of Soda Day (December 30), New Year’s Eve (December 31), and Wear a Plunger on Your Head Day (Really! December 18). There are even more special holidays this month than I mentioned here, but these are the only ones I had to buy gifts for.
With so many festivities, how’s a bigfooter supposed to decide which one to really go nuts for? Until recently, I had chosen December 4th: Wear a Beard of Bees Today Day. (I’ve often thought how cool it would be to extend the “beard of bees” idea into a whole suit to make a “bigfoot suit of bees.”)
Well, apparently I have to trade in my bee suit. Thanks to my favorite beef jerky company, we now have “The Twelve Days of Squatchmas.” Finally, a holiday that is easy to carry the spirit of all year long!
I’m headed out of town today to visit family for the weekend. I’m planning to get into the woods when I return for some chilly winter bigfooting. Check back next week for updates on this and other efforts!
Merry Squatchmas, everyone!
