Christmas cheer revisited

“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people”. Luke 2:10.
Christmas is over, but in case you want to get a head start on next year, here’s a suggestion. It’s the “Patriot Parade Christmas Ornament”. Only $39.95, but you’ll have to wait until 16 February, because it’s not in stock. I notice that people who bought the Patriot Parade also bought Slander.
Also available in February: the “Frosty ’n’ Free” ornament. It’s “a fun way to add a dash of red, white, and blue to your Christmas tree. Your children or grandchildren might even follow Frosty’s example and include the flag next time they build a snowman”.
On the other hand, they might not:
The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise. […]
The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. […]
No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.
