Throwback Thursday: Season's Greetings 2008

In honor of the holiday, today I'm taking the easy way out. Last year, I posted this and although I had to update the video links since YouTube cracked down on copyright infringements, these work (I have to admit that I cheated a bit when I updated virtually every link in my previous postings, so I found updates at that time, but this posting seems appropriate given the date). Best wishes to everyone for a happy holiday! Catch up with everyone again soon!

I'm can't hope to match George's vlog postings (see here or here) or even Kerri's eloquent holiday if not-quite-poetic (it was, after all, similar to an already copyrighted work, but it was still great) posting, but I did think that some humorous, cynical holiday spots from SNL might be appropriate for the day, so here are my contributions:

First, in honor of the annual Charles Schultz "Peanuts" holiday special, is this (towards the latter half of the video):

And then, to honor (or make fun of) the annual Rankin/Bass puppet specials (Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, The Year Without A Santa Claus, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town), this is another humorous parody:

More serious content will be featured again in the coming days, but enjoy the holidays!
