It's not Christmas until...

I was listening to KLOVE today, and they were discussing what made it officially "Christmas." It was interesting listening to what people said.
-Watching "It's a Wonderful Life."
-The second Thanksgiving is over, it's Christmas.
-Having your credit card rejected means it's Christmas. I hope that was a joke.
-Wrapping the first present...

And there were several more, but one lady phoned in and said, "It's officially Christmas when you have to try and take toys out of their packages." Studmuffin was in the car with me, and we both died laughing. Then, they played this song...It is so funny, I had to share it with you!

It made Studmuffin think of Bookworm's first birthday. She got an ABC caterpillar. It had 26 legs, and each individual leg was wired in place in addition to the head. Bookworm stood next to him bouncing and clapping, just dying for him to get that caterpillar out of it's "toy packaging."

What about you? Do you have any toy packaging nightmares to share?

Oh, I loathe toy packaging!

In my day, we had to put everything together. I think that was sometimes quicker. I wonder how much the person who ties all of those plastic coated wires gets paid?
