Traditions, that’s what the holiday season should be all about. Festive happenings that you look forward to since they only roll around once a year. Traditions like celebrating (or suffering) through distant relatives, eating entire animals stuffed inside of other animals, and mouthing the lyrics to carols that have words you don’t know and notes you can’t hit.
That’s right; I’m talking about the good times here.
I tend to get a little “you kids get off my lawn” toward the commercial side of the holiday season. Lining up for Black Friday Thursday, November deals seems wrong on many levels. Thanksgiving should only produce gluttony, then food comas, then leftovers, and then post-leftovers food comas. I try really hard not to buy into holiday buying.
That being said, I do have one buy stuff holiday tradition that I look forward to every year. When this catalog rolls out, it kindles my consumer fire more than the Christmas Book from Neiman Marcus (though the Cobalt Valkyrie-X Private Plane in Rose Gold is definitely on my want list).
For many the putter-lover like myself, nothing says the New Year is coming like the release of the new Bettinardi Golf catalog. While not technically a holiday release, for the past couple of years Bettinardi has lifted the curtain on their new putter models right before we dive into turkey and tidings.
