Have Yourself a Foolish Little Christmas

By Joann Floyd (TMFHunzi)

Have yourself a Foolish little Christmas,
Let your debt be light.
From now on our profits will be out of sight.

Have yourself a Foolish little Christmas,
Be sure to post all day.
From now on our troubles will be miles away.

Once again as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore,
Foolish friends who are dear to us,
Will be here with us once more.

Through the years we all will be together,
If the Fates allow.
Hang a shining star upon the highest Dow.
And have yourself a Foolish little Christmas now.

[Looking for stocking stuffer ideas for loved ones who aren't Foolish yet? Buy 'em The Motley Fool 2000 Calendar at Foolmart,, or any finer bookstore.

What? That's not convincing enough? Okay, here's a freebie... the January 4 entry, just in case the world isn't around then:

Top Five Reasons to Go Ahead and Buy This Calendar Instead of Just Flipping Through It in the Bookstore

  1. Special super-advanced technology ensures that mail-in contest winners will be chosen from only those who actually own the calendar.
  2. Like you're going to remember the valuable -- but boring -- tax tips come April if you're reading them now.
  3. There's no way to remember our Web address ( by merely reading it now. You have to buy the calendar and see mentioned fifty times to have any prayer of remembering
  4. Torturing Telemarketers Week reads much funnier in hot July weather.

And the number-one reason to go ahead and buy this calendar instead of just flipping through it in the bookstore...

  1. We're pretty sure we got most of the dates in the right order.]
