On The First Day of Christmas…
December 14th, 2011 by slangon

For the second year in a row, I’m highlighting some of my favorite cardboard acquisitions from the past 365 days. If I lived in an other part of the world, I might start this series on Christmas Day and run it straight through January 5th, a period known as Chistmastide. The 12 Days of Christmas was traditionally a festive period that began on either Christmas Day or Boxing Day (December 26, known as Boxing Day because of the tradition of giving Christmas boxes to service workers, such as postmen and tradespeople) and running through to the Eve of the Epiphany. In the States, as with many things, marketing and media has basically retuned the 12 Days of Christmas to be the period leading up to the Big Day in order to whip the masses into a shopping frenzy.

With that said, on the First Day of Christmas my collection gave to me

A Cardboard Zeppelin.

  1. I’m glad you’re doing this because I have abandoned my 12 days of Cardmas duties this year.
