As you gather important documents and prepare to square up financially this year with Uncle Sam, why not give a quick 'tax-time' time audit to your estate plan, too?
The novelty Christmas song, " Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer," was written by Randy Brooks and originally recorded by the husband-and-wife duo of Elmo and Patsy in 1979. According to the song, the family matriarch gets intoxicated from imbibing too much eggnog. Then, having forgotten to take her medication and ignoring warnings from her family, staggers outside into a snowstorm. On her way, she is trampled by Santa Claus and his reindeer. At the next day's Christmas gathering: "all the family's dressed in black" while the widower acts as if nothing's happened, drinks beer, watches football and plays "cards with cousin Mel."The song ends as a cautionary tale that Santa, "a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves," is unfit to carry a driver's license, and that the listener should beware. In short, Santa is a menace to society.
