Happy Birthday To Who?

Here I go again reminding you that I am a Noticer. I notice things that other non-noticing people do not notice. I know each of my dear readers is happy that I notice what I notice...Or are they?

My iPhone gives me access to over 1,500 Emoticons. I actually tried to count them but had to finally decide that a 1,500+ guess was the best I could do.

In looking through my 1,500+ Emoticons I saw that there was one of everything for anything...Or was there?

What I could not find was anything having to do with Christmas. (It must have something to do with Separation of Church & Smiley Faces.) There used to be a little Christmas Tree, but not anymore. I know some of you consider this progress but Old Fashioned Fella does not.

I was out & about in my car a couple of nights ago when I started thinking about creating this Blog Posting & I began looking at Holiday Decorations (formerly known as Christmas Decorations) as I drove along. Based on what I saw, I got to wondering about whose birthday we were celebrating. Was it...

Ø Frosty the Snowman?

Ø Charlie Brown?

Ø Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer?

Ø A Bunch of Nutcrackers?

Ø The Candy Cane?

Ø The Grinch?

To me it looked like Rudolph was the clear winner. Frosty was a strong but distant second. It is only a matter of time before we are going to be frantically scurrying around buying presents & greeting everyone we see with, “Merry Rudolphmas”.

Would I kid u?
