Best Holiday Gift Ideas for that Special Evergreen Tree in Your Life

My producers are reminding me that the holidays are underway! We’re only a few weeks out from that very special time in winter when many people celebrate the birthday of evergreen trees everywhere! Whoop! Whoop!

Happy Birthdaaay, evergreens. Happy birthdaaaay, ever—huh? Whah?

It’s not to celebrate a tree’s birthday party? Don’t be ridiculous. Of course it is. Why else do we bring a poor cold tree inside where it’s warm, dress it up, and then heap presents under its boughs?!

Silly producers. Anywho, if you’re looking for the ultimate gift to really wow your spruce or fir tree on its upcoming birthday, then you should definitely place an order for a Blister and Muck t-shirt or sweater or face mask or tote bag. No matter what you select, I include a special thank you surprise from the entire Blister and Muck crew!

A portion of your purchase helps bring this podcast to so many listeners week after week.

And if you’re not in a position to contribute financially, that’s ok. You support the show whenever you tell your friends, school chums, and second cousins to listen along.


Special thanks to composer Roland Rudzitis for serving up the Blister and Muck theme song. Additional public domain music from Komiku, Monplaisir, and John Bartmann. Mark DiAngelo supplied the wind. Mike Koenig made the mysterious upstairs thump. Extra special thanks to my family, friends, and fans. One for one and all for you!
