For quick witted hosts, if it's political news, pop culture news or weird news. We're talking about it. This is undebatable. And here are your hosts Raylene?

Unknown:

Hey, oh, hey, Oh,

Keith:

Bradford.

Raylene:

Believe I missed the opportunity.

Bradford :

Ready to go. Those are Christmas sounds because of course, this is undebatable. And by the time this episode drops, you will be exactly two days before the big holiday. And in lieu of that. We're gonna make every attempt to keep this episode as clean as possible. Possible keyword possible. Yeah, no, no swearing, no talking about anything, you know, adult like, but hopefully we can manage it. I should have made a bet.

Steve:

And then we would donate the money to charities. Right.

Bradford :

There you go. Yeah, man, the time you toy phone's gonna work out great today. They're gonna be

Curtis:

the first person that swears is donating $25 to charity and I'll match it. Or

Steve:

tonight give me an incentive to swear. Pretty much. Wow.

Raylene:

Could you please swear first because you know, I'm gonna accidentally do it.

Steve:

When he opened it, I almost did it naturally. It's it's what I want. But it's

Curtis:

Christmas time.

Bradford :

I know. I feel conflicted. You know. Happy Holidays, everybody. I hope you're all doing well this week. Are you? Are you guys pretty much done with your shopping or baking or wrapping all that good stuff. Or are we still

Steve:

I want I'm waiting on one more thing coming on the 24th and I hit up Walmart and did the whole like wrapping paper gift bags. All that stuff today.

Raylene:

Except for scissors. Except for yeah,

Steve:

I forgot. Yeah, I forgot scissors. I left work early, like really early. So I validated by like, Hey, I'm gonna go finish. I'm

Bradford :

gonna wrap all my gifts. Got everything I needed other than scissors. And I'm a man. So I don't have scissors in my house. My mother in law's here from Mexico and she was helping me wrap today for Angel. And she did something that you mentioned Raylene earlier, and I've never seen it done. She folds the wrapping paper takes a knife and just goes right across. I mean, instantly that thing is cut and I'm there but scissors. She's still married.

Curtis:

But that she's still married. She has. Okay. I'd be scared,

Bradford :

right? Yeah, She's good. She's good with a knife. I know. It was at that very moment that I was like, so you like me? Right?

Unknown:

should ask her. How

Steve:

are you? Are you circumcised?

Raylene:

I was like, Wait, does that count though? Oh, crap. Does

Unknown:

that count?

Steve:

No, it's about anatomy,

Bradford :

about anatomy. And it's, you know, it's the thing that people sometimes do. Yeah.

Raylene:

I mean, I made a post the other day, they said, Is everybody looking forward to celebrating Christmas on December 28. On all their stuff gets here.

Bradford :

Exactly, no, there's

Raylene:

so much stuff that's in limbo that

Curtis:

I didn't realize that that was a thing. Well, it can go to the post office a week before Christmas and expect

Raylene:

it to get there. Even if you couldn't expect it to get there. If you went at Thanksgiving. I'm serious.

Unknown:

I learned the hard way. So Amazon

Bradford :

actually has learned a lesson during COVID. Because in initially, at the beginning of COVID, they were just fulfilling all the orders that they received. Because they've never seen such a volume, they were like we need to get ahead of this. What they weren't thinking about was that each shipping center only had the capacity to hold so many packages. And that's when places like ups reminded them, you know, per your contract, we can only receive 15,000 packages a day and they were like crap. And that's why if you go on Amazon now you'll see where sometimes you don't get your package for a week later. And people are like, wow, it's Amazon. What's going on with Amazon. It's actually ups FedEx and USPS that have caused that delay because they're like we can't handle it. We just don't have the car

Steve:

I ordered on what the cutoff day was like the 18th or something. I think I ended up ordering that day December 18. And on Amazon, it was like will arrive by Christmas like some items didn't the ones that did obviously that's what I did. I ordered it got here two days ago.

Curtis:

Well, I but I would prefer that Amazon's in those, those calls those robo calls to remind us of stuff like that, instead of like those warranty calls that we get for our car insurance expired, because I would love to know that I had to mail by a certain day or order by a certain day, but I didn't

Raylene:

get aware that those first years and adult

Unknown:

warranties are a scam so

Bradford :

that's when you download Robo killer Robo killer is this is this app that you download As soon as a number comes in, that's on the bad list of you it, it blocks it so your phone doesn't ring, you don't get bothered. And the receiver gets the most annoying message. You get to set whatever you want. They've got all these pre Selected Messages, like

Steve:

kind of get a dumb and dumber and most annoying sound in the world.

Bradford :

You can do anything like I got this like Italian guy, and he's like, yo, hey, oh, so it sounds like someone's answering, right? And I was like, yo, listen, all right, you cannot call here it's a $5,000 fine. And I'm now adding you to the list. And like all this other it's it's,

Curtis:

I take all my aggression on all those robo calls or telemarketing calls? Or the What is that? The $250 gift certificate to Disney World? Are you guys getting those vacation days?

Unknown:

What are they? Well,

Raylene:

I don't or such I don't answer anything. If your numbers not in my phone, we're not friends. But

Steve:

you have to you have to what I get joy from those people. So I string them along. so bad. I had this guy one time, and they kept calling me so I got sick of it when I'm at work. I'm like, kind of like boards. Oh my god, let's do this. Answer the phone. I'm like, hey, like, Hey, we would like to do this. And I'm like, Oh, yeah, let's do it. I can hear he's like, so shocked. And I fell for it. And then I went, I get my I'm like, yo, let me get my computer's like just told me your IP address. I'm like, Alright, cool. Well, my credit card work. Instead he goes, Oh, yeah, so I could give him I kept giving him 15 digits instead of 16. And I kept changing the numbers every single time. And then on top of that, I went from john the gym to every time he would say my name, but no, it's not my name. My name is Alan. And I just kept changing it. And then it gave me to like some guy who like you could tell he was super cocky, like his English is way better. He's like, Hello. I'm like, Oh, hey, man. Yeah, I'm trying to just do this. And this guy can't figure it out. He goes, why don't you open up your computer like they'll he was willing to walk me through figuring out my IP address. So he could literally log into my computer and take all my stuff. But yeah, just drag him along, man. Cuz if you just I wasted 10 minutes in a guy's day, guess what? He didn't trick some stupid person on the phone for

Bradford :

fraudulent and I would play those games. But the people I feel bad for the people that this is their job. They work in a call center. They have to make these phone calls to put food on the table and know that they get through hell,

Curtis:

there's so many other jobs you can do.

Bradford :

We are in a pandemic, it's it's that's what it was called

Curtis:

a timeshare. couldn't think of the new hires. Cheryl's driving Yeah, see,

Steve:

the real deal version of that is pretty sketchy, let alone the timeshare that's kind of sketchy. If you're actually trying to get out of one with an online number. Like you're probably

Curtis:

you're absolutely right now that I think about it, because I was one of those dummies that actually bought into one of them before they're here in the beginning. In the beginning of the pandemic,

Unknown:

not a good thing. Really. Yeah,

Curtis:

I was feeling you know, just like, Ah, this purchase sounds great. $200 reading it now. $20,000 points for Hilton. He just, it just got better and better. Oh, I strung him along for 45 minutes to get the most of the most I was trying to get to free.

Unknown:

And you thought you screwed him.

Bradford :

Well, free is good. But what's even better is $15 if it's yours that is so what we're doing is we're all sitting around the table right now with ugly sweaters on. And after the episode, we're going to take a picture of all of us in our ugly sweaters. And we want you to tell us for the very first time in our lives, whose ugliest knockers faces winners attain is well it was we

Curtis:

weren't mysteries post this. I never play by the rules. Be sure can I say? I did. We're an ugly sweater. I tried. You did. But then I had to bling out something to distract.

Steve:

Giant chain.

Bradford :

I love it. Hey, that's part of his ugly sweater where so what you have no chance is you have to go on to our face. Oh, no,

Raylene:

no, you're right. You don't have a chance. You don't have a chance against me and my two x crop top. No.

Bradford :

Way to they see that. Seriously. wait to see her. Sure. It's not

Raylene:

my fault. Targeted. I didn't realize I felt like it looks a little short. But I didn't realize that it was trying to show my Santa's belly, please.

Bradford :

She said it's crazy. So here's how you got a chance to win this $50 Target gift card. What you're going to do is you're going to go to our Facebook, you're going to find the pictures. You're going to share our podcast, and then you're going to vote for whose sweater is the ugliest Christmas sweater. Wait, that's it for $50 that's all you have to do is do that. No, I

Raylene:

thought I would get the $50 or one. No, no. No.

Unknown:

Well, I'll share it. I'll tag I'll do it.

Bradford :

We're treating one of our lucky listeners to a $50 gift card. Love it. Yep, your name goes in the pot and boom. That right? There name goes into that's what happens. We've got a great show for everyone. Today we're gonna be talking about everything Christmas that you can imagine. Right? So first topic of course what do you do with old Christmas cards, especially ones with pictures. When is it too early to put up Christmas lights and lastly, Monday. It's national humbug day. What do you hate the most about Christmas? So let's start off at that one Monday, just yesterday, day prior to recording. This was national humbug day. And this is the day when it's your last chance to absolutely hate Christmas. And so I asked my fellow hosts here, what do you hate most about this holiday? Wait, who made this up? Right? Where did that come from? But

Raylene:

it hasn't easer Scrooge. Alright, there we go.

Steve:

Yeah. Well, you gotta like you can't be a miserable person on like Christmas Eve.

Raylene:

Tricky know that. Some people are miserable. 365 days a year.

Curtis:

That was that used to be home. I hate it Christmas.

Steve:

Hey, I'll miss Warren. I didn't I'm proud of myself.

Unknown:

That was good.

Steve:

That was you know, this sounds horrible. And it's not that I don't want to see him. It's the stupid family parties, man. Like, it sounds so bad. It sounds I don't want to see my family. I don't want to just like, I'm gonna drive an hour. And I'm just like putting in time, you know. And again, it's not that I don't want to be there. But it's like, okay, I've done two hours. I'm allowed to leave now.

Curtis:

So it's COVID not having any effect on you. Because that used to be me. Like, I'm just like, I dread doing any of that stuff. But now that COVID kind of came in you're kind of like in your little silo. You don't want to like visit people more be around family. human interaction.

Steve:

Not for me again. It's a good time. It just it's a forced gathering when I'd read. There's one place I want to be my house. There's nowhere else I want to be other than my house.

Raylene:

So do they give you horrible Christmas presents?

Steve:

No, what we do so scarred. We do this really crappy version of ganky swap where you steal people's gifts. Oh, yeah. The problem is we can never every year we disagree on the rules. So before we start already arguing, and then so and then every year, okay, we're gonna remember it next. And then it's the same thing. So before we start, we're already arguing. And then last year, I bought a gift. I was late. I didn't get to use it. It was weird men's underwear.

Unknown:

You're stuck with

Steve:

it. No one's no one stole anything. So I had it in my car. My friend got pulled over left a bunch of weed in my car. So then the cops are searching my car and they find this weird underwear. Yeah, they're like what's inside this wrapping paper? I'm like, I tell him what it is like we have to open it so make it a keylock. Okay, man,

Bradford :

and our listeners for our listeners. Just so you know, when you check out those Facebook pictures of the ugly sweater. He's actually in his undies. With a sweater, or a very high

Steve:

cut thought. I think the competition rather found a kilo of coke when you open that up, right? Yeah, so it's in the embarrassment of with the police and just yet just a force. Last year, I said I had a date. And they let me leave in 45 minutes.

Bradford :

Wow, nice. You don't need to do you need to come up with a charter of rules. The official Yankee swap

Steve:

charter. As we say, every year we'd never do

Raylene:

that, let me tell you the best way to do a swap. And I know this because I do this with my parties. This is how I survived the holidays, I do a sexy Santa swap parties. And everybody gives me $20. And I bring all the products and they're wrapped up. And so they don't know what they're getting. But they're all products for my company. But it can be the same way with yours. But what I figured out is if I let everybody pick a new package every single time, everybody will pick a new package. So now everybody gets to pick a new package. But after they open it, then they decide if they want to swap and

Steve:

now it gets ugly. See where we always beef is like when you steal something. Now does that person pick a new choice? Or do you get you have to take it from someone

Raylene:

else. And that's where we always get all the way back to the first person all the way back. So even if you're the 10th person to open, and you still number nine is present nine gets to steal eight is still seven, seven, it's still six, they can still whatever they want down to the last person, but you can only swap at one time per round. And it's so much fun because then nobody owns anything until the very, very last round.

Steve:

I was getting teamed up on that. The first year we did it. My grandma had a body pillow. And I got this like I got these women's slippers. And the way it worked out was I could only like I think it was last to go or some I currently take for my grandma. I don't know what the situation was. I can take her down. Everyone's like, Stephen chill, do that. That's not fair. I'm like when I do these pink slippers. They're micro. So I took the body pillow. She got pissed. She never played the game ever again. And from that point forward, I'm the target of everybody. So it's take everything from me and give me the crappiest gifts every single listen.

Curtis:

Sounds like jerks in my family sounds like jerks. I've never even played these games. There's you don't want to I think

Raylene:

I probably think it's fun because as the person who's doing it, I don't participate. I just lead the whole thing and nobody ever steals anything from me. So that's probably why I enjoy it

Steve:

just yelling so

Bradford :

if grandma can get run over by a reindeer she can get tackled for those pink slippers.

Raylene:

And why can't you wear the pink slippers? Right?

Steve:

I had that body pillow forever.

Raylene:

Does she did did she? Never mind? I wasn't gonna say just his grandpa's still around. Is that why she wanted the body pillow? No, no, no. I'm sure you are mean.

Steve:

It wasn't a shape.

Curtis:

pillow. Speaking of things that really swipe left and I see

Unknown:

Right, exactly.

Bradford :

Speaking of things that really light up people's moods, Christmas lights, I think they're very pretty. I there's no thing I like more than driving by house and seeing it all decorated for Christmas with those beautiful lights. But there comes a point where it's too early like I feel Thanksgiving Day and on put up your lights but if you're like putting them up on Halloween or even before then I think

Steve:

that's a problem. You know, we I Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and we hear every year. There's a war on Christmas. The war. Like boy, myself again, there's no war on Christmas. There's a war on Thanksgiving, okay? Because it used to be Hey, the day after wake up at 5am and go shopping then it was Hey, at midnight after Thanksgiving, you're shopping now. It's like, Hey at 2pm screw your family. Let's go shopping for Christmas. Christmas is a month and a half and thanksgiving now gets like seven hours. Right? And that's it. So at least respect the holiday. Wait till the day after and then go crazy on Christmas. Put

Bradford :

your lights up after the day after Thanksgiving. Yeah, go get your treat, do the whole thing. And that's great, you know, but I just it's sometimes it's way too early and and then there's people that are keeping their lights up and it's like Valentine's Day. That's all

Curtis:

my lights I just don't I just don't want to see the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The San Jose put up lights when I don't like those

Raylene:

little

Curtis:

things should be a timeframe for that.

Steve:

That's not an impressive you you dragged an extension cord out and plug some shit in and walked away

Unknown:

and cry it How is that? Wait,

Curtis:

have you seen the light shows though? Where they're coordinate synchronized to music. Alright, wait.

Unknown:

A really good one.

Raylene:

I think that's the ones where the people just got the bubble lights and it just makes a pattern on your deck.

Steve:

Those are worse than the inflatables.

Unknown:

Unplug mine.

Raylene:

There's one that's literally like on my way down here. And it's a red, a blue and a green light. And it's just rotating. And every time I see it, I'm like, oh, how fast Am I going and then like the Christmas light

Steve:

on my on my way to work in the morning. It's dark. And there's this really long driveway, you can't even see where the house is. So it's driving us crazy long. At the end of it. There is a maybe a four foot Bush, one six foot string of white lights in this like someone literally drove by and throw it in there. And I'm like, What the hell have you do? You just brought an extension cord like 300 feet from your house to just plug in one six foot cord and just throw it on the bushes and just walk away. Right What do you do? What are you doing?

Bradford :

Right That's That's insane. Yeah, I it's that there really is a you know, a point where it goes from beautiful to just downright ugly.

Steve:

Do you guys have lights?

Raylene:

Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. But they're really well done. So it's just like one very organized strip around the top of the house. We've got some in the apple trees. And then we have these like spiral Christmas tree things that we put over the light poles that will someday exist in my yard, but don't currently and I think it's really awesome. Because it's like my driveway is lit up. So when you go by, I mean it's really nice. And then we've got like a spotlight that's on a huge wreath on the side of her house. And that's lit up. My husband one time was at the Navy exchange, and they were swapping out their Christmas ornaments. Like the big so like huge swags huge trees huge and everything was like $5 each. So he bought it all and it's all in our yard. Wow. And it's gorgeous.

Bradford :

Do you do it right though? It's picture perfect,

Raylene:

right? But it's like 700 feet of extension cords, right?

Unknown:

That's really

Raylene:

because we're 300 feet off the road. Right? Yeah.

Bradford :

Well, speaking of picture perfect. What do you do with old Christmas cards? You know, especially the ones with the pictures in them. Do you keep them? Do you throw them out?

Raylene:

is such a decision every year. I'm like, do I need pictures of this kid? That's the child of someone that I want sold a sex toy to? Can we

Unknown:

likely not?

Steve:

I don't know how you guys feel but I think they're the stupidest most narcissistic thing that you can do.

Unknown:

I don't mind it. I don't mind. I've got some pictures of yourself or pictures with kids. I know pictures

Raylene:

like a Christmas card.

Steve:

Do you ever really open a Christmas card and be like, Oh, look, it's the same people from every year before? No, they're just one year old. Well,

Raylene:

when we moved from Orlando back up here we've got one family and they send their their family Christmas card every year. And it's I like to see that one I'm happy that has stopped is the year end wrap up that used to come in the Christmas cards with what a great year we had. Or maybe it was just we didn't get any this year because

Unknown:

they knew they got the memo.

Raylene:

Suzy graduated top of her class and Jimmy is just graduating college and got a job as an engineer at Boeing. Just got a raise and mommy is the president of the PTA. None of that evidence

Steve:

we have Facebook and Instagram right right like Do not interrupt bar. And then if you do just put it on there. Don't miss glisten. Don't any of you ever send me a Christmas card because I'm gonna throw it in the trash. Scratch that on a magnet. Don't have a scissors you think I have anywhere to put a Christmas card up? Yeah, I

Curtis:

was gonna get back to that scissors thing, but we'll let that go. I

Bradford :

think the the only Christmas card I ever received that I absolutely loved was actually I was a member of the National Wildlife Federation. And they sent all of their members a Christmas card. And they partnered with the Arbor Day, and the card itself had seeds. Oh, yeah. And the paper we've gotten

Raylene:

that in.

Steve:

So send me some of them when you That's cool.

Bradford :

After you're done with the card, you actually plant the card in the ground, and it grows a Christmas tree. And it was great until my dad ran it over to check in.

Raylene:

So one of the before like years before, before every card started having pictures of kids on it. Someone had said every year she just saves the front of the Christmas card, especially if it's got like a pretty Decker, you know, like a scene and not words. And the next year she would use those as the to and from cards on our packages. That's cool. But I mean, back then people used to get like 50. Now, you know, I think I get eight this year. And it's that's fine.

Steve:

Well, well, back to the original question. What do you do with them? How long do you hold? How long do they sit? My has a whole door? I don't even know there's many people my whole life she has the whole door covered him like how long do you leave that? And then what do you do afterwards? Right? They go in the trash. But do pick and choose like, Oh, I want to keep this because

Raylene:

I mean I actually I think I do have a drawer that has pictures of others people's kids. But I will tell you. The saddest thing I just realized this year is one of my friends that I met 14 years ago before I started doing the parties. I actually started doing them because of her party. And every year she sent me pictures of her kids and I saved them one of them's actually like on on one of my bulletin boards. I've been looking at her kids since they're six months old pictures forever. But she had a cancer this year. Oh, wow. And goes well, no, my face. No, but what what made me sad was just that I'll never get a Christmas card from them again, because the husband doesn't know me and he's not going to send me one. And so now like, Oh, these three little redheaded kids. I'm never gonna see what happens.

Steve:

You see, they're gonna be older and they'll have red hair,

Raylene:

probably. And they'll be awesome because

Curtis:

their mom is awesome. He's beginning to look a lot like scratch.

Steve:

Yeah, the humbug topic was my

Raylene:

was my idea. And I had nothing valid to say about it.

Steve:

Chris, I've never been excited about getting a picture of anybody. Unless it's one of those kind of pictures of the dog

Bradford :

in it. I love those with a family brings her dog in. Oh, my God, children that I

Unknown:

get. That's about it.

Raylene:

Yeah, but those are relatives like I like the ones that my daughter sends me. Don't send me

Curtis:

pictures of random people. You know what?

Steve:

Maybe I really am screwed because I just got my first Christmas card of my life yesterday.

Bradford :

your coworker? An old coworker. Okay, cuz your coworker took her picture on Facebook yesterday. It's got the pig in it. The pig made it into the photo. Oh, I

Steve:

thought you meant she sent it to you and not me. No, no, no, no, it

Unknown:

was it was posted.

Steve:

Maybe now once I open up this Christmas card and I feel the joy of actually opening one. My heart will grow bigger. Didn't

Unknown:

have a nice message. What

Keith:

did it say?

Steve:

I haven't opened yet.

Unknown:

Why? What are you waiting? Cuz

Steve:

I know what it is. Christmas cards. I know. I know what my friends family looks like never gonna open it. I don't know. She said she's gonna send me a Christmas I hope you're listening.

Curtis:

Whoever this person is. I'm gonna find out is there you ever family?

Steve:

I don't I don't need a picture like me opening a picture doesn't valid you could

Curtis:

have a nice message to you.

Steve:

I was like, is there cash usually associated with it? All right, I'm not open.

Curtis:

You send me a card with no cash no little get my Visa gift cards don't send

Raylene:

one when I get out of people's kids that are not like like my one friend who sends them whatever. And my family my first thought is you ordered too many Christmas cards and don't want to waste them. So who can know?

Steve:

What a task to put onto yourself?

Raylene:

stamp like I mean, I feel a little bit like oh, you thought of me. And the other part. I just ordered less cards. It's

Curtis:

a lot of work to write to and from on an envelope. Oh my god.

Bradford :

I know. And my handwriting stinks. So I acted like right super slow to make it look nice. I'd be there all day. Well, when we come back, we have a very exciting guest. We have Maria Cologne, and we'll be talking with her at the top of the break.

Raylene:

Curtis Where were you? I thought you were gonna miss the podcast.

Curtis:

I was grocery shopping and it was rough. I had to run all over town to get everything on my list and I got elbow dropped by a little old lady over a pack of toilet paper. I don't see what's so great about shopping. It's a pain.

Raylene:

So I better be top of that list. Okay,

Unknown:

top of the naughty list on the nice list. What do you want to be you pick?

Bradford :

Wow, this is this is incredible that we actually have Santa here in the studio with us. So there's so many questions I can think of right now. But the first thing I have to ask you work your tail off all year long. When do you actually start to prepare for Christmas? Is

Unknown:

it literally like the day after Christmas? Or do you get a little bit of like a vacation? No vacation Santa does not rest unless Mrs. Claus says I can rest. Did you guys know Mrs. Claus is the boss at the North Pole course I figures behind every good man makes sense. There's a better woman right?

Raylene:

Is her name Carol by any chance? I was always just wondering.

Unknown:

So she runs the show up there so the elves are working 20 473 65 they're non union their minimum wage at least a minimum wage. That's good. All right, so

Curtis:

there's a minimum wage I pretend to

Bradford :

get room and board right.

Raylene:

The minimum wage just all of the cookies and hot chocolate they can eat though right?

Unknown:

Which I take that marshmallows. No. Those are for me. I

Steve:

get Santa. We love you. You brought me gifts, all this great stuff. But I got a little beef. Oh for like eight years. I asked for Nintendo and a BB gun. You know what I still around Nintendo or a BB gun was not good enough.

Raylene:

You'll shoot your eye out. Well, there's

Unknown:

gonna be a lot of disappointed children this year that aren't getting the PS five The LS Can I get the materials in order to build the PS five. So it could have been a supply and demand thing could have been like this whole COVID lockdown going on so we can't get the supplies elves can't make them. I'm telling boys and girls all over the world that PS fives are hard to come by so you don't personally just like me, there's nothing against you

Bradford :

18 years, your beard wishes it was a little short notice there

Unknown:

was a there was a child last night in westerly that requested a BB gun and I'm like okay, we can do that. We have BB guns up there and we have Nerf guns and then I tell them my Nerf gun battle story and they love it and you know we Nerf gun battle? Yeah, well, I was doing a tour of the factory. Yeah, you know and all the elves I got like 600 plus elves work in the Nerf gun section. Right? What can go wrong? Right right go in there. And the biggest battle you've ever seen was taken place and I'm like wow, what are you supposed to be working?

Steve:

Were you in a disadvantage because of their size and the numbers of them

Unknown:

now they're just shooting each other and I'm like, you guys are supposed to be working and then elf Bernard came up and said Santa chill out. You know this is quality control. We have to make sure they were all the control like right true before you pass him out on Christmas Eve I'm

Steve:

like so the hierarchy goes Mrs. Claus elves Santa Claus. Oh, well, I

Unknown:

fell for it. So I picked up a gun on my arm in the middle of this thing and I got nerf bullets flying around top of the tables on the floor and then you know who shows up? shows up the whole doorway hands on me the finger. Oh boy, Santa Nicholas, St. Nick, Kris Kringle whatever your name is? And no milk and cookies for me that you are in trouble? Oh, yeah, I was in Santa. I

Curtis:

want to know what's your playlist? What's your top five songs that you're listening to? While you're directing the the what are they reindeers?

Unknown:

You want to use right now? How many do you use? Eight of them a lot about Rudolph? Unless it's a foggy night. Ah. So who does only use for fogging only for foggy nights which happens how often probably once every Christmas stars.

Curtis:

So what do you do with Rudolph? When he's not leading the pack?

Unknown:

Rudolph is kicking back. Yeah, he's he's Yeah, he's he's got a good I don't know who did his contract for us. I think so.

Curtis:

I need your top five.

Unknown:

Well,

Curtis:

what do you jam into as you're delivering presence? What do you jam into?

Unknown:

last year? I performed or Mariah Carey performed with me at the Mohegan Sun. Yeah, that was that was me. I saw you I was there with

Steve:

Mariah Carey. You performed and she was with you. That's exactly yeah,

Unknown:

dancing. You have to move she'd been singing that song for 25 years All I want for Christmas. 25 years you got never made it to number one a week after she performs with me. It makes number one on Billboard.

Steve:

So you're now her agent

Unknown:

that I don't know what I can say about that. But people can assume

Raylene:

I realized the other day that that song is actually the sickest burn ever. It's I don't want much for Christmas. All I want is you.

Steve:

Any woman that says that is lying and they're setting you up.

Unknown:

It's a Christmas song. So actually, the book is about her wanting a puppy. So she came out with a book last year to accompany the the song Yeah, it's about her wanting a puppy.

Raylene:

Nick Cannon wasn't enough of a puppy.

Unknown:

So that's at the top of my playlist and depending on where I'm going, I'll put on traditional Christmas music I'll play on I'll put on kids Christmas music. I'll do some kid bop stuff and listen to some good old get me in the spirit.

Curtis:

Have you ever done a tick tock?

Unknown:

Santa has never done a tick tock. While they're still charging my niece's are probably a little disappointed.

Curtis:

Stay tuned for saying Curtis lost my crown was watching I just got a crown for Christmas.

Raylene:

So how long have you been Father Christmas?

Unknown:

Well, I am technically 1750 years old.

Bradford :

Wow. And he looks great for your age.

Steve:

Your health insurance.

Unknown:

The North Pole. I don't know what it is,

Bradford :

you know freezes in time right? I don't know what half freezes everything. Yeah. Oh, they're so what do reindeer eat? Exactly. That's been a question that's been on my mind forever.

Unknown:

Well, most kids leave carrots, right some leaves celery, trying to talk him into leaving some apples some fruit for the for the for the reindeer some of them you'd like oatmeal and stuff sometimes they leave it by my cookies and milk and sometimes they'll spread on the front lawn. They pretty much whatever but these cookies are good and I know they're not homemade but I always tell the children the kind of sore yes I always tell the children to make make their own cookies you know with mom, dad, grandma Auntie or whatever. And do that special ingredient. We know that special and special ingredient CBD or just making sure

Raylene:

Just make him feel better.

Unknown:

Nothing wrong with those type of cuts Oh, it's love. It's especially those cookies I'll eat mostly all night but sometimes I'll get some like big why or shop Rite Aid or you know the store bought cookies and sometimes it will make it to the roof and though the reindeers will eat some cookies. Oh,

Bradford :

but when you're when you're not on your one night out in the rain, you're in North Pole. Are they eating like a grain of salt?

Unknown:

Yeah, they get grain they get hay. But of course when I leave the North Pole before I leave on Christmas Eve, you know who? Oh, yeah, Santa. You can't be eating cookies on. I haven't got her accent on yet. But yeah, no.

Steve:

What does it feel like to go through a keyhole?

Unknown:

Oh, it's magical. It's a magical experience that is very hard to describe whether it's a keyhole, a chimney, woodstove flute, a flu or whatever. It's just a magical experience. And it's hard to describe. I guess you'd have to do it. Yeah, really ever fallen down?

Bradford :

Like Have you ever hurt yourself or falling off a roof?

Unknown:

No, no, I'm pretty good. I'm pretty nimble. Good. Pretty nimble.

Raylene:

All right. This one is a very serious question that gifts from Santa are they wrapped or are they on wrap?

Unknown:

It's both sometimes I get some elves that are just a little bit slackers. You know, could be a state employee or something.

Bradford :

That's a minimum wage when you're paying the minimum wage you can't

Unknown:

that's sometimes a wrapped sometimes unwrapped, sometimes there's, you know,

Raylene:

always the stockings are from you.

Unknown:

The stockings are gifts from Santa Claus. Sometimes mom or dad will slip something in there. But you know, I like to do the stockings. Sometimes. If I'm there in I hear I think I hear a kid coming down the hallway. Or a dog barks and I think it might wake up I got a skit. Atul. So have you ever been caught? I

Steve:

was gonna ask that

Unknown:

I have not been caught. Wow. hoppin quiet. That's amazing. I warn my kids when I see him now, running up to Christmas. I say Don't even think about setting up some trip wires or setting up some cameras or anything else I said, because if that happens, and it's like, you know, instantly off the nice list,

Steve:

they'll just they'll just want a selfie for their Instagram. That's that's all that one.

Raylene:

Oh, yeah. That's all the kids are in to know. Hey, how many lumps of coal did you have to leave last year?

Unknown:

For children? Yeah, well, whoo. Or for adults? Yeah. Zero for children. Wow. See, those children have made the nice list. I'm gonna

Raylene:

have to tell my daughter she's an adult parents are liars.

Unknown:

I don't think that came from Santa Claus. When you got the call? I think that was from mom and dad. Talking about selfies. You know we call it the North Pole. What? elfis elfi

Steve:

for those don't you?

Unknown:

Take me for

Raylene:

lots of good

Unknown:

like that. I really did. Try this one not ABCs in the United States was called what? alphabet alphabet.

Steve:

Thank God. He was looking at me.

Unknown:

Can I phone a friend so what do we got? What do we call it in the North Pole? alphabet alphabet. getting really good at this job. I got a snowman one for you. Tell me the snowman one. I think it happened up here in Norwich, it probably story was cracked at shoprite. And there was a snowman in the produce section. I have to explain to the children with the produce section and fruits and vegetables and what happened. It's no man's in and the manager goes up snowman. You're gonna melt What are you doing in the grocery store? And he holds up a carrot. It says I'm picking my nose. That's the only appropriate time to be picking you know, your snowman to catch servers.

Raylene:

My kids catch me picking my nose. I'll just say I'm a snowman.

Curtis:

Oh. Wait, do you ever go through the list and you see naughty and you're like, ah, maybe that's nice. Maybe they deserve a gift. How does that work when you go into the naughty list? Well,

Unknown:

we don't it's actually a list making a list. She was

Raylene:

gonna find out who's naughty and nice.

Bradford :

Santa Claus is coming to our studio.

Unknown:

I'm here he's here. So you there on the nice list. Or you're not I don't keep track of like, you know, the naughty list. I don't have a separate book but I just have the nice list. And somehow, every year coming into Christmas Eve, every child makes a nice list.

Raylene:

Oh, it's because we're threatening the heck out of them.

Unknown:

As parents

Raylene:

in stores before I see a little kid to act in a full on I take my camera. I'm like sending this to Santa. Watch that little Santa. So

Curtis:

what's your advice for parents that are in the grocery store and there's kids are screaming and wailing because they want this toy and they're in the aisle and the parents trying to decide in that moment do I beat this child? Do I run out with this child then beat him in the car? Or do they just scream and annoy every other parent in the store? What's your advice?

Unknown:

Well, they should have brought the kids to the grocery store in the first place. And not Walmart, okay, teasing, but we'll get you a treat at the end and put the toy back and you just have to try and reason with the kid. Move along, drag them kicking and screaming. Every parent has probably been through it. Every parent understands if somebody gets upset with the mother that the child is going to just relax. Don't threaten them with Santa Claus. I'm threatened with the police don't threaten them with DCF just say, I'm on Christmas is common. Sand is what about the unfortunate children out there that don't believe? Well, they believe in something, although some of them believe in I had one last year I was in Providence, and I was doing a an appearance in a hotel. And it was a Phish concert weekend. So I didn't perform with fish. I couldn't smell it right now. It was a very nice fish, by the way. So it was this child that came up and it was seven or eight. I couldn't tell the gender of the child by the name. I couldn't tell the by the name of the child what the gender was. So I had to be generic. And the mother was like, we're not going to tell daddy, but this is his first Santa Claus and they've always gone to alternative Christmas parties up in Maine. Okay, yeah, we're catching your vibe. They had it they had it there their whatever was a Yeti. Wow. So they had a Yeti as their token

Steve:

Santa Claus. Terrifying to be bringing you gifts.

Unknown:

So there was the abominable snowman. cooler.

Steve:

Man thing that might live in the woods.

Unknown:

So my gosh, you know, there's non believers that believe in a Yeti or believe in something else and you know, as long as the spirits there that's all that now Yeah, the kids deep down inside the kids want to believe they it's the season of laughing joy given in wicked doesn't want that.

Steve:

So not believing won't get you on the naughty list. Now. You're always good in San Jose. Oh, yeah.

Unknown:

You see those kids are I know this. And I know that and you know, I've done this and I've done that. And I'm like, Sorry, buddy. Deep down inside. I know. You're a good kid. And I know you want to be on that nice list. That

Bradford :

guy outside the studio is Brandon. He is on the naughty list. He's been on the naughty list. I

Raylene:

think we created the naughty list.

Unknown:

He's the reason why the naughty list exists. Oh, I don't know. We've been people been practicing to get on that naughty list for quite a few years. You know? Wait, did I make the naughty list sir? Oh, no. You're just the You're the king. Okay. For the record,

Steve:

you don't i don't know if you're allowed to say this publicly. Is there any celebrity that you can remember? Who is made on the naughty list?

Raylene:

Tom Cruise.

Steve:

There's probably a guardian guy named Harvey. That's definitely on the top of that list.

Unknown:

As children again, we go back to Santa. Wow, very

Steve:

good point.

Unknown:

I can't you know, decide after they're adults, whether they're naughty. So once we

Steve:

lose the purity of being a child, it's kind of on our own.

Unknown:

March I mean, you can still carry the innocence you can still carry the niceness. I mean, and then you can revert back I did a an appearance yesterday was Monday at that was yesterday, right?

Steve:

paid appearances. Oh, no, I could be right. How much do you charge?

Unknown:

charge to share a story on your site? Depends on the likes I get. I did a nursing home in mystic the other day. And it was like my third one of the seasons so far. And I just walk around the outside. And because I can't go into COVID, right. They're all locked down. In the springtime. They had like, you know, half the residents had passed away due to COVID. Right. And the staff were there and some of them got stuck. But yesterday when I walked around in this, they opened up the windows and they started instantly complaining, oh, it's cold. But then they saw me. Yeah. And there's people that are 92 years old and 81 years old, and they just smiled and laughed and waved and blew me kisses. A couple of them cried. We had the high school chorus group come down there. I worked

Steve:

at nursing home when I was 22. And like we're cracking jokes but on a serious note their life is so mundane and regular that even a watching a different movie is a big breakup. So for you guys to go out and do that you some must have made their whole entire they

Unknown:

were they were it was amazing. I think I got just as much if not more out of it than they did. And it was very emotional. The staff was very emotional. I was doing videos for their kids at home. And the staff that have gone through this for what since March with the COVID the residents I haven't had any visitors. It was just amazing. And that's what Christmas is all about that spirit of joy and love and everything and so you can try all you want to make the naughty list. But you know, when it comes down to it, it's just you know, it's just amazing. We're

Steve:

all good when it comes down. Oh, yeah.

Unknown:

What's your favorite Christmas carol?

Steve:

Santa Claus coming to town?

Unknown:

Yeah, that gets that gets kind of played out or is your favorite one After a while after last year

Raylene:

I am I have a lot of people struggling with COVID and then you don't stand if you're hiring but are you rolling quarantine at the North Pole. So you know it's COVID free up there. It's almost like New Zealand up there.

Raylene:

Raylene:

they also have domes at the jealous monk if you meant you can go sit in a dome and drink and eat your food.

Bradford :

Well, actually, that's a really good question to end this with is Santa's immune from COVID I heard his magic can protect him.

Steve:

He said he gave you the vaccine.

Unknown:

Oh, first out. You said we're immune from it. And then everyone is like No, we're not. And then even Santa doesn't know. And then you know, so we're getting the vaccine. Oh God, we're on the top of the list.

Santa Claus

Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, or simply Santa, is a legendary character originating in Western Christian culture who is said to make lists of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior, and bringing gifts on Christmas Eve of toys and candy to well-behaved children, and coal to naughty children. He is said to accomplish this with the aid of his elves, who make the toys in his workshop at the North Pole, and flying reindeer who pull his sleigh through the air.
