Norwegians, being a sensible people, have the big Yuletime celebration on Christmas Eve. So before I eat myself into a food coma and opens presents with my family, allow me to wish you all the very best for the midwinter holiday – or midsummer, for those south of the equator – with this Australian 1959 Gillette Christmas commercial:
May your holiday be peaceful and restful, and I do hope you all get what you wish for under the tree – if you have a tree, that is. May you stay safe with your family, be it the family you’re born into or the one you choose.
Stay safe, stay sane, and stay shaving.
