Poet John Lydgate once wrote; “You can please some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” And at no point in the year is that more applicable than the holidays.
So if you’re having a tough time keeping all your friends, family, co-workers and other associates happy with your
Christmas Hanukkah Kwanzaa holiday cheer, this generic winter advent calendar is sure to offend no one. Instead of the traditional 25 days counting down to Christmas, the calendar has just 6 leading to the holiday of your choice. And instead of finding a delicious chocolate every day behind those perforated paper doors, there’s a small plastic novelty toy that’s guaranteed to be 100% non-offensive. They’re just $4.95 from Archie McPhee, and I’d be tempted to pick one except that I find the color blue to be incredibly offensive, and intend to start an email campaign letting Mr. McPhee know just how disgusted I am with this product.
