(NaturalNews) You may have noticed we're on an abbreviated publishing schedule right now, and that's because we've given our staff the holidays off. But I'm still working, and I wanted to wish all NaturalNews readers a Merry Christmas or whatever appropriate holiday you may be celebrating.
May your holiday be blessed and your visit from Santa Claus (or any other mythological characters of your choice) be fruitful!
As I'm always preparedness minded, I also wanted to remind you to keep a close eye on your tree if you're using a real tree, because they tend to dry out and become amazingly effective tinder boxes that can explode in a ball of flame following an errant spark or short circuit of your decorative lights. I'm sure your local fire department will support this warning: If you're using a real tree, don't hang electrical wires on it!
Also, if you're leaving milk and cookies out on the table for Santa Claus, please don't use raw milk, or the creature coming down your chimney might be an FDA spy engaged in making his own "naughty or nice" lists.
If you were hoping to get your hands on the new Air Jordan sneakers, it seems that a couple thousand drooling zombie heads already beat you to it. Seasons beatings! blares the Drudge Report on this story. Watch this amazing ABC News video showing a crowd of clueless, mindless, pathetic human beings literally stomping all over each other to be the first to buy overpriced celebrity-branded tennis shoes because they think it will make them popular: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/nike-air-jord...
By the way, try not to overrun the city landfill with your Christmas wrapping paper garbage, even if that means being the resident greenie who insists, "We can save that paper for next year!" (Nothing takes the fun out of unwrapping Christmas gifts quite as effectively, does it?)
Better yet, have an anti-consumerism Christmas and don't hand out any presents at all. Your children will remember that moment of realization forever... Just tell them, "But mommy and daddy don't want to participate in the wage slave debt-entrapment culture of mindless consumerism!" I'm sure your four-year-old will understand perfectly. Don't they always?
Coming up right after the holiday break
Starting Tuesday, we've got stories coming up that highlight the top developments of 2011. With your help, NaturalNews achieved an impressive number of significant victories this year, and we want to review those with you as part of our year-end celebration.
I've also completed a piece on the 2012 Mayan calendar which is now suddenly on everybody's mind since 2012 is right around the corner.
Our year-end NaturalNews Store sale is going on right now, through December 31st, where you can save a whopping 17.5% off almost everything in our store (but excluding exercise equipment and appliances). Use discount code HOLIDAY18 at the checkout: http://store.naturalnews.com
Also, the membership loophole at the Green PolkaDot Box online buyer's club is ending on December 31st, and it's a ridiculously generous situation that you won't want to miss out on. Basically, when you buy their top-level membership, they turn around and give you the full fee of your membership -- plus $500! -- in credit to spend on all the organic, non-GMO and natural products they carry (and their selection inventory is expanding in a huge way in January). Even better, all these products are deeply discounted, sometimes as much as 60% off. Get more details in my article: http://www.naturalnews.com/034464_Green_Polk...
(This membership loophole will be permanently removed on December 31st.)
Finally, we're also launching videos next week from our new NaturalNews video studio, which is now fully functioning. In January, we'll be shooting live interviews with numerous special guests, including Ed Group (from GHC), Jonathan Landsman, KC Craichy from Living Fuel (via Skype), and even a former FBI agent who will be joining us to talk about the failures of the war on drugs.
It's going to be a hugely exciting month of videos, and we'll be posting them at NaturalNews.TV as well as our YouTube channel.
So stay tuned to NaturalNews and get ready for an exciting 2012!
