Candy Canes & Coal (Dec. 22, 2017)

Our Christmas edition of the weekly feature we usually call Roses & Rotten Tomatoes

CLICK HERE to send us your submissions.

  • Beautiful candy canes to everyone who stopped and helped me when I was struck at Surrey Sports and Leisure. Your concern and kindness is so appreciated. Special shout-out to the people who brought out blankets. I don’t think I got to thank you. It made a huge difference. Thank you!
  • Candy canes to the man who was panhandling at the strip mall. You seem so familiar. If this is who I think this is, long time no see. If you like, I can treat you to a coffee. I hope you are doing OK.
  • The most beautiful Christmas candy canes to Grandma Pat. At 91 years young, you spent all year crocheting hats and scarves, baby blankets and purchased gloves to gift to an elementary school to give “the gift of warmth” to children who don’t have the proper clothing to keep them warm. You taught me that when you have your hand out, have something in it to share with others. We need more people like you, in this world! Merry Christmas!
  • Truckloads of coal to the crooks who stole the two inflatable Minions and two Christmas light projectors from my front lawn the other night. My four children are upset, and my three-year-old is very hurt by the loss of his “front yard friends.” I hope Santa skips your house completely, but if he feels the need to stop there anyways, maybe he can leave you a bucket of coal. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Enjoy “your” new light projectors, they only work half of the time anyways.
