A Lack of Respect for Frosty the Snowman

27 Dec

Like a lot of people, our house gets all decorated up for Christmas. This year, we had two Christmas Trees. One was called pretty. The other one was called tacky. Take a guess which one was my favorite.

Anyway, we had Christmas stuff everywhere. Figurines. Snow globes. Stockings. Each one of them had their place of prominence. However, one piece of Christmas decor did not receive the respect that I think it deserved.

Frosty the Snowman is a classic character and the star of one of the holiday’s best cartoons. You just would not know it at our house. Our Frosty sat on the couch in the bonus room, which should have been good because that is where we have the big television. However, that could have been his demise.

When someone hit the couch to watch television, Frosty always ended up on the floor.image-20

Most times, he lost his hat, too. Naming myself the fixer of Frosty, I gave myself the job of putting Frosty back into his proper place and putting his hat back on his head. Through the weeks, I have lost count of how many times I had to come to his rescue. I must admit that I started feeling sorry for him.

Tomorrow, we will be putting the Christmas decorations back into the attic, and Frosty the Snowman will go back into his box. I have determined that next year Frosty will be placed in a more protected place. There is no reason for him to spend his furlough on the floor. He should at least be allowed to sit up.

    In my house, Frosty would have been a very uncomfortable pillow. At least the floor preserves some of his dignity.

    Until next year…

      That is correct. No creature, two-legged or four-legged, used him as a pillow or a chew toy.

    Larry says keep him out all winter. Who says he’s only for Christmas? He’s a snowman. Give him all the respect during January and February.

      I agree. No reason to put him back in attic purgatory.
