The snow in Montana post and the post with the GSD puppy (makes you melt ) got ME thinking about Christmas and a REALLY random superstition that I have. I have this belief that the predominant color for a particular Christmas (color used in the ads and in the stores) is indicative of the economy and the mood of the country. Here goes, and see if you think so, too. Blue-Times are great, we spend like it's water and diet hard to look like models. Red-Times are okay. We watch a lot of our spending, but still buy the last minute stuff. Green-Times could be better. We are cautious and don't buy a present this year for our weird uncle. Pale Green-Times are really bad. We look like models because we're starving!! Silver-Times are good. We are celebrating all of the new technology, which is flying off of the shelves. Gold-...um...haven't had a gold Christmas, yet!!
