Oh, this was fun! It reminds me why I don't shop on "Black Friday." Love it.

I loved the details in this. And I didn't want to stop singing. Good job.

The most creative take on this week's topic - I completely enjoyed the uniqueness of it!

I stumbled over some of the words as I tried to sing it in my head, but you truly captured the spirit of Christmas shopping. (And reminded me why I get all of my shopping done before Thanksgiving!)

What a hoot! The Christmas carol tells the story. Great imagination. Your "carol" will keep me chuckling for awhile.

Love your carol - and it is exactly why I stay home on Black Friday. :) Great job rewriting the lyrics to this "classic".

LOL! This is my favorite part:

"It didnít cost Mom much to get it
Just a broken rib and dislocated knee"

What fun!

Totally hilarious ... just the kind of 'carol' we need to set the mood for Christmas! (",)

Oh Josh, this had me laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my cheeks. I've never heard the song before so I looked it up on YouTube and listened to the music while I read your ode. This is an absolute hoot! Excellent job my friend, excellent job!

I was thinking the tune in my head as I was reading. Very good fun!

This has to be my all-time favorite! It should be recorded.(LOL)

Oh, Josh, your writings are a delight! :) I stand in awe of your "fun" spirit. This is great! :)

More fun than a ginger snap. Of course you had to do this - it has you all wrapped up in it and tied with a bow. It is so wonderfully you that it's fun spirit cannot be denied.
