Merry Christmas, Y'all...

...from all the good folks here at Gingerology... and hope all other holidays and observances which you may partake in this time of year have been / will be special for you as well!

Will have some posts coming up pretty soon - just trying to get 'final preps' ready for the 25th... in the meantime, will be working on some 'new' ideas for the blog - and your input will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your support! And remember -
Keep It Gingery!!!



  1. Merry Christmas, Huey!

    You know what would be a neat Christmas tree ornament? How about a mechanized one of Ginger and Fred dancing?

  2. Merry Christmas!
    I forgot to mention in my e-mail that I got a present from Ginger and Fred ;)
    What could it be? :o


  3. ...hope y'all had a good one! We have been as busy as one-armed paper hangers around here...had a house full of people yesterday...and spending today trying to get back to 'normal'... hopefully will catch up with the blog tonight!

    BTW - hope y'all got to watch Top Hat this morning if you felt so inclined... there are a few more Ginger movies coming up the next few days... I will try to post a reminder soon.

    Lauren - you need to post pics of your Gingeresque present... I really did not get too much, especially 'Ginger' stuff, but I have been running rampant on eBay the last few months...
