Are you sending coal to the White House this Christmas or Hanukkah?

Updated on December 1, 2012

Meant as a joke, but it may be fun!

Many people have accused the president of waging a war on coal. No matter where you stand, it is easy to see that millions of jobs would be created if we harvested and released the the energy available in America.

With so many looking for work, many want to send a message to Washington D.C.!

Well, here is one way. Send candy coal to the White House this Christmas. Yes, I am joking, but it sounds fun doesn't it? I mean what better way to wake up Washington then to send coal to your "favorite" politician? I love the idea! There is even a new Facebook page out on it!!/pages/Send-Candy-Coal-to-Washington-this-December/212423682225553 It is great to be able to have some safe, clean, fun in tough times!

I wonder what will be more offensive, sending candy coal and implying that the politicians are not doing their jobs, or celebrating the birth day of Jesus. It begs an interesting question, doesn't it?


If you plan on getting this for your child, my favorite kind is Palmer's! I love their chocolate with the crisps in it. Besides, if one is to give candy coal, it should be American made! That is another reason that I won't buy any other brand!

If anyone does mail out candy coal, it has to be unopened and completely untouched! If anyone is stupid enough to unwrap candy and or do anything to it, before giving it away to anyone, they belong in jail! No ifs ands or buts!

Let's keep this fun, and remember the true meaning of the fantastic Holiday!

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!

      Sounds like a fun idea. For those who have been naughty (99% of all politicians I would estimate) a lump of coal, candy or not, sounds like a plus to me, not that I would expect any of them to get the point

      LOL! Very funny and creative way to remind the White House just where they stand on the naughty list.
