Jewelry is the Gift to Give...

Since I was but a wee lad, one of my favorite things about Christmas was the BC Clark's Anniversary Sale Christmas jingle. This is an Oklahoma thing. Every Okie knows exactly what I'm talking about. It kind of ushers in the holiday season in Oklahoma and I don't know very many Oklahomans who don't have it memorized.

Well, this year is the 50th anniversary of the jingle and BC Clark has a great website set up to commemorate it. You can view the commercials over the years and even download the jingle from iTunes for free. Check it out at www.bcclarkjingle.com. If you've never lived in Oklahoma, you especially need to check it out and see what you've been missing!

To all of you who have never been to Oklahoma and would typically trust Jeff:

The man's a liar. Speaking as someone who STILL lives in Oklahoma, this song is the sole lump of coal in my holiday season. Yes, most people around here love it, but I just want to make it known that we in the minority feel nearly oppressed by this hideous, subversive song.

Oh yeah...and Merry Christmas!
