What is the most important phenomenon about the holidays?

I love the movies and music, celebrating with neighbors, office parties, friends, touring festive neighborhoods and hearing what children ask Santa for. Davelle Clothiers is a work-place, but I love the sense of community with customers and employees. The atmosphere in the shop is festive!

There are very expressive opinions about holiday songs and movies. I’m not a big fan of “Jingle Bells” because just about every kid sings the parody, which I am not repeating! I’m also not crazy about the movie “A Christmas Story” where the kid sticks his tongue on a frozen flag pole…makes me queasy! 

Dave Eisele II C.O.O., the Senior Wardrobe Designer, and a father of an amazing two-year-old, has proclaimed his favorite song is “Jingle Bell Rock”, his least fav is “Baby it’s Cold Outside” (the words are creepy!). Chevy Chase’s Christmas movie is the best by far! Dave has an aversion to any Hallmark Channel Christmas Specials. His brothers both love “A Christmas Story” and insist on quoting the script at any get together. I have to say that when I babysat I got a little tired of “Mickey’s Magical Christmas” at his house!

Senior Wardrobe Consultant Tim Bumba’s favorite Christmas movie is “Friday After Next” I had never heard of it! So, of course had to watch. My favorite part was where the cousins moved out of their parents’ homes. It does have some comic lessons about the true meaning of the holiday season. (there is “crude” language for a choir boy!) Tim assures me that there is no bad Holiday Movie! His favorite Christmas carol is “O Holy Night”. Tim doesn’t like Hallelujah, he says the words just don’t fit. I do like the way Pentatonix sings it, but, I agree the words are a little weird.

Hussein Rassoul the Wardrobe Stylist has several opinions about holiday movie’s. Being the father of an adorable six-year-old he enjoys “Home Alone” and agrees with everyone except David and I that the Movie “A Christmas Story” is a holiday favorite. Even though he is not fond of freezing weather “White Christmas” is his favorite holiday song. He votes with 66.6 percent of the county that “Santa Baby” is unnerving. (The other percent didn’t vote)

David Eisele Sr. CEO has declared that the worst song ever is “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” and a close 2nd is “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”. Being a father of 4 adults and a Papa of 2, David is a huge fan of the old carols, “O come, O come, Emmanuel” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” Mr. E. says they feel almost indestructible, you can be inundated with them every Christmas, and yet, somehow, you can hardly wait to play them again! He agrees with Dave: Chevy Chase’s Christmas Vacation is unsurpassed.

The classics are classics for a reason, explains David Eisele, designer and founder of Davelle. A fundamental part of any celebration, be it Christmas or any happy occasion in any culture around the world is about the clothes! OK, download your favorite movies, music, get the best eggnog and party food and don’t forget Adam Sandler’s “The Hanukkah Song”!

This season in all sincerity is about feel good music, movies, food and finding the perfect gift for that special one on your list.

From all of us at Davelle Clothiers – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and as George Costanza would say “Happy Festivus For the Rest of Us”!
