Today’s necktie is a Christmas necktie.
It is a Winnie-the-Pooh necktie.
It is a Classic Pooh necktie, an E.H. Sheppard Pooh, not the Disney Pooh.
I feel spiffy. I feel tres chic. The tie looks tres cool.
Why am I using a French adjective?
Winnie-the-Pooh and Christmas. A winning combination. 🙂

You hardly ever see the original Pooh anymore. It’s always the Disney version.
Do you have any Peanuts ties in the collection?
I have 6. All of them are too big for me to wear, though. :/
It can be difficult, but Classic Pooh is out there. I did some hunting to find some Classic Pooh Christmas cards this year, and I have a few Classic Pooh beanies. (I actually have an extensive Pooh beanie colleciton. Among my prized sets–Pooh and friends as the Beatles, Pooh and friends as the Three Musketeers.) I think the reason Classic Pooh dried up a few years ago was the ongoing litigation over who exactly owned what in relation to Pooh.
Many! Fifteen, twenty, maybe. :banana:
