Submitter: When you get bored, what do you do? I reach for my trusty McCall’s Golden DO-IT BOOK. There is so much you can do with the DO-IT book, but my favorite is to make GAY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS. I weeded this book many years ago, but it remains on my desk in my office, because every time I see it I just have to laugh.
Holly: This reminds me of another ALB favorite: The McCall’s Giant Golden Make-It Book. Not only can you DO IT, but you can also MAKE IT (although if they have you MAKING gay Christmas ornaments in the DO IT book, I don’t see the point in having two separate titles.). Of course, they just meant “happy” Christmas ornaments, but times and vernacular have changed since 1960. I kind of want to make that clown on the cover of this book and give it to Mary for her birthday.
