These Gifts Aren't Late, Just on a Different Schedule

Sometimes we don’t get our Holiday gifts to people before the Holidays have passed. But where the Calendar is strict, the spirit of gift giving is not! And in The Uglyverse and Squishtownworld, they know that! There, the holidays are all celebrated on flexibly expanding schedule...

Trunko – GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

                       

Dave D. – Why are you screaming?

 

Trunko – I FORGOT 2 PRESENTS!... I never gave Groody his

Uglysaurus rawhide bone, and a homemade blue apron for Wage is

still sitting on the floor of my treehouse.

                       

Dave D. – Trunky, ol’ pal, you’re the most forgetful creature ever.

If you forgot two Winter Wonder Holiday presents, then Winter Wonder Holidays aren’t over yet! Go get those gifts! Celebrate! Go… Oh… he’s gone.

That’s just one example from the Uglyverse, but it’s very commonplace! The Holidays end when everyone is done celebrating them. Why set deadlines on widespread fun, Why tell a day when it has to stop being awesome, they ask? And I can’t help but agree with them. 

 

In Squishabletownworld, the tradition is the same but they just refer to the Calendar as being ‘Squishy’. You can never be very sure about a date or when it is ending, or sometimes even when it’s starting, when everything is so Squishy. So they figure, why be strict? Celebrate all around it so that you never miss!

 

So if you’re stressed because you might not have time to get all your presents to their recipients, relax. Think about it this way, maybe the Holidays can be celebrated a little longer this year, maybe they’re over when we’re done celebrating them, maybe there is never a bad time to give a funny, cuddly, and ugly in the most adorable of ways plush toy to someone.

A new fuzzy friend like Yeti The Abominable Squishable Snowball, who’s got a fluffy white and blue, Wintertime special hug for anyone, anytime and he’s not scared of Blizzards, Ice, or even Days When The Sky Is Super Gray And It’s Cold.

Or a Purple Pirate Eyed Pal like Handsome Panther! When you’re as charming as this vibrantly furred, valiantly fanged, veritable fellow you celebrate when you arrive, and who isn’t going to celebrate with you! Think of all the shoes that will be cobbled and the hugs that will be had!

And if all else fails, there is always Cthulhu. Elder Gods of Chaos and Doom do not heed the small boxy calendars of man! Dost thou not seeist Mighty Cthulhu, in his furry green and squishy plush beastliness? Yea, and dost not the holidays merely begin when he arrives? Cthulhu is never late, so says Cthulhu.

In the end, the holidays are about a whole lot more than presents and dates. And one day is never enough to spend all the time with all of our loved ones. So don’t worry about any of the deadlines, celebrate with friends and family whenever you can! And seriously, who can get mad if you're 'late' when faced with one of these cuddlemonsters?
