I just received this holiday missive in my in box from Visit Orlando:

Florida Residents – Don’t Skip These Savings!

It’s holiday season in Orlando!

Come share in the holiday spirit in Orlando’s world-famous theme parks and resort hotels as they dazzle with jubilant cheer along with miles of garland and twinkling lights.

Holiday traditions and joyful celebrations transform Orlando — Theme Park Capital of the World ® — into a magical wonderland guaranteed to have your family singing “fa-la-la-la” all the way home.

Celebrate the holiday season with our list of events, parades and lights, including several options at low or no cost, or included with theme park admission.

Because the holidays are a joyous time — and no destination is more joyous than Orlando.

No mention of Covid-19.

No mention of the rising case load and overcrowded hospitals.

No mention of asymptomatic health care workers who’ve tested positive for Covid being kept in the rotation to treat patients.

No mention of masks or social distancing or pandemic precautions.

WTF?!

Are “miles of garland and twinkling lights” enough to entice Covidiots to ignore the experts and put their lives on the line in order to stand in line?

Oh, wait . . .

My mistake.

It’s a “magical wonderland” . . . I guess that means that Cinderella’s fairy godmother waves her magic wand and eradicates the virus from all and sundry entering the theme parks.

Fa-La-La-La-La!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Oh Schadenfreude . . .

Oh Schadenfreude . . .

How lovely are thy branches

Oh Schadenfreude . . .

Oh Schadenfreude . . .

How do you entrance us

You make us laugh

Each time he frowns

We’re thrilled that he

Won’t be around

Oh Schadenfreude . . .

Oh Schadenfreude . . .

Our wish came true for Christmas.

Merriam-Webster dictionary sees huge spike in 'schadenfreude' search

Aah . . . that’s better!

I love this . . .

Spoiler alert . . . Trump supporters won’t find it as funny as I do.

Too bad.

Maybe we are finally ready to “Make America Great” again!

Without Trump trumpeting tyrannical tweets from the White House.

1/10/21 ~> Since we lost the YouTube clip, I’ll insert my own 6-word joke here:

Trump’s tweets?

Quothe Twitter, never more!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Feeling Anxious?

Out of sorts?

Not your normal cheery Tiggerific self?

Ready to get back on track?

To stop trudging through the sludge?

To restore your demeanor and return a bounce to your step?

Who ya gonna call?

Ghostbusters?

Nah!   Halloween’s over.  The US Election is on Tuesday.  And we’re still in the midst of a Pandemic.

What we need  to alleviate accumulated anxiety is some high quality Stress Busters!

Like Water Lilies!

What?  Not enough?

Don’t worry, I got your back.

If those gorgeous water lilies didn’t calm your inner beasties . . . check out the New York Times “Election Distractor” for soothing waterfalls, mesmerizing undersea creatures, flickering candles, wafting smoke, plus infant stars, a bevy of swans, bright moons, thirsty sheep, tired Teddy Bears, etc.

First up ~> rotating Avocados!

Aah . . . that’s better!
