PeeWee’s Christmas Special: Pee Wee can’t pronounce “Feliz Navidad” in Spanish…
Ever heard of “Pancho Claus”?
“HOUSTON (AP) — He usually has black hair and a black beard, sometimes just a mustache. Like Santa, he wears a hat — though often it’s a sombrero. He dons a serape or a poncho and, in one case, a red and black zoot suit. And he makes his grand entrance on lowriders or Harleys or led by a pack of burros instead of eight reindeer.
Meet Pancho Claus, the Tex-Mex Santa.
Amid all the talk about Santa Claus’ race, spawned by a Fox News commentator’s remarks that both Santa and Jesus were white, there is, in the Lone Star State, a Hispanic version of Santa in cities from the border to the plains — handing out gifts for low-income and at-risk children.
Born from the Chicano civil rights movement, Pancho Claus is a mostly Texas thing, historians say, though there may be one somewhere in California. Lorenzo Cano, a Mexican-American studies scholar at the University of Houston, says Pancho was apparently conceived north of the border as Mexican-Americans looked to “build a place and a space for themselves” in the 1970s. His rise coincided with a growing interest in Mexican art, Cinco de Mayo, Mexican Independence Day and other cultural events.
Now, Pancho is an adored Christmas fixture in many Texas cities.”
¡Feliz Navidad, ya’ll!
Actually, I think Zazzle Gift Cards are a great idea…I know people sometimes dislike gift cards, but I do love them! Givers don’t always know what recipients like, but Zazzle is the kind of online marketplace that has something for everybody…
Remember my post last year about Lordnapping? Well, a GPS device embedded within our Lord shall track the sinful thief…I spy with my little eye, a guy who’s going to jail for Jesus…

Hello dear readers,
Just a posting to let you know that I stand with Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson – and a brief explanation of why.
My bottom line is this: I don’t care, or want to know about, people’s sexuality. Which means, I don’t care if someone is gay or straight. I have plenty of other things to worry about in life other than what people said about homosexuality…that’s not about me, anyway. Yes, I know what the Bible says about it, but as a Christian, I find it entirely invasive to ask or talk to people about their sexuality, and I won’t answer questions about mine.
You may be a different flavor of Christian than I am. You won’t get an argument outta me for that reason alone. Even if you’re not a Christian, think how you’d like.
The show “Duck Dynasty” is realllllly funny, IMHO, so I’d watch it regardless of the family’s religious beliefs.
