Santa in a tub. Need I say more?

Why? Just...why?

Why? Just…why?

Okay, admittedly, I probably do need to say more.

Have I told you all how much I love Christmas? Even to the point of combining it with Thanksgiving in order to truly extend the season into November? Thanksmas ring a bell? Okay moving on. You get the point that I love Christmas. Well, as I love it so much, I have started scouting out my go-to Christmas music playlists. I found the good ones on streaming stations like Pandora and Songza. And now, I’ve found a three-hour long medley of Christmas songs on YouTube.

I was elated. Mostly because my employer recently chose to block Pandora and Songza and I now have to resort to Youtube playing in the background (also, dear employer, please don’t block YouTube).

Anyway, most of the medleys are just a continuous screenshot of some warm, fuzzy Christmas scene. Maybe a decorated tree next to a roaring fire (in a fireplace, not like out in the woods or anything…weirdo), maybe a nostalgic picture of a Santa looking at his “list.” Most of the images are pretty common place.

And then, there was Santa in a tub. I kid you not, Santa in a tub gets a good chunk of time throughout that three hour medley. Check it out for yourself (or just use this as a way to listen to an AMAZING Christmas playlist…you know I won’t judge).

And then I started to think about who would come up with this as a decoration idea? Who thought to themselves, “You know what our living room display needs? A big fat Santa undressing and slipping into a nice warm tub. But don’t worry, we’ll just use white stuffing as the body. Totally normal. Nope, nothing weird about that.”

Also, can we talk about the teddy bear? How does that make sense? Have you ever taken a stuffed animal with you into the tub? Let alone, when was the last time you saw a grown man take a bath? I mean, I know of a couple individuals who used to take baths and I completely don’t judge them, but I’m just saying, it’s not the typical advertisement for selling bath bubbles.

I realize there’s no way to wrap up this Santa in a tub story in an elegant manner, so let’s switch gears and talk about one of my favorite clips from New Girl. Basically, the fit of giggles I get from watching this clip is about equivalent to my immediate reaction to Santa in a tub.

Puuuuuupppy……in a….ccuuuuuuuupppppp. I’ve so been there, girl.

And that about wraps up the deep thoughts I’ve had today. Yeah, not much going on upstairs, obviously. But I hope you got a bit enjoyment out of this.

Cheers, friends!

    Sorry. I was reading your post through Gmail and it didn’t show me the YouTube link until after I posted my comment…
