Twinkies, Twilight, and Tidings of Comfort and Joy

17 Nov

The end of this week marked the end of two eras: Hostess and Twilight. Both relatively sad and both extremely over-dramatized… and by that I mean Twilight.

Our future generations will never know what a “Twinkie,” “Ding Dong,” or “Wonder Bread” is. It is a major and depressing loss within the confectionery industry for Hostess snack cake fans every where.  Apparently the Twinkie specialists decided to close shop after labor disputes led to an unavoidable bankruptcy. Not to say that I actually enjoyed eating any of these snacks after the age of 12, but I feel as though part of my childhood has died. Perhaps this was the catastrophic event that the Mayans predicted to occur at the end of this year…

As for all you Twi-hards out there, the final installment of the Twilight movies premiered Thursday night to complete the era of vampire seeking teenagers.  Whether you were Team Jacob or Team Edward, the sparkling vampire and baby-loving werewolf have ended their reign as fantasy boyfriends for middle aged women every where. Christian Grey, you’re next! I was unfortunately dragged to the movies with my mom and watched the melodramatic montages project on the silver screen for two hours. Needless to say, this final movie was just as exaggerated as the past four films.

In the midst of these hard time, we can look to the future to find inspiration and happiness. Christmas is 37 days away, so that’s what I’m looking forward to. I am also excited to see how this girl handled the final installment of the Twilight saga.

To brighten the mood for those of you in mourning, here is a little Christmas cheer that will hopefully turn your frown into a smile. Enjoy!
