This post is about tradition. In the heart of Oklahoma City, there is a jewelry store. And as Oklahoma tradition would have it, Christmas doesn’t begin in our fair state until you hear the B.C. Clark Jingle! (history) Click on it, sing it with others…..you’ll never get it outta your head!
Now, let the festivities begin! And welcome to our Oklahoma tradition…. 🙂
♪ ♫ ♪ Jewelry is the gift to give
Cause it’s the gift that’ll give and give
So give the gift you know can’t fail
at B.C. Clark’s Anniversary sale.
Most sales are after Christmas
But Clark’s is just before.
Most everything is marked way down
Savings you can’t ignore at
Oklahoma’s oldest jeweler
So give the gift you know can’t fail
at B.C. Clark’s Anniversary Sale!!! ♪ ♫ ♥
TaDA! I just sang this to you while typing it out….hope I got it right! Happy Weekend! And be nice to each other!
I love local traditions! Thanks for sharing this
🙂 Have a great weekend!
I love real local jewelry stores – my grandparents had a “family jeweler” in our hometown. My grandpa always bought original pieces. Have a great weekend!
I don’t recall them not ever being around! I was born in OKC…. Happy weekend to you. I’m betting E.S. is extra awesome!
Clint and I were just commenting that we haven’t heard it yet!
Just sing it! 🙂
Reminds me of growing up in a small town! And I can just about hear your OK ‘twang’ … 🙂
Just a singing…..♪ ♫ ♪
😆 Good advertising.
This made me laugh! Can you imagine if some of our deep causes tried working out a catchy jingle? We could spread it like crazy and it would stick with you until old age.
Speaking of Christmas traditions, I just read where Chandler, a town nearby, is having their 56th annual “tumbleweed Christmas tree parade” today. They went to the outskirts of town and gathered enough tumbleweeds to build a 33 ft. tree (on a metal form) and then they sprayed it with 20 gal. of white paint, 20 gal. of flame retardant and dusted it with 65 lbs. of glitter, 1,200 holiday lights and a star on top. Maybe they need to make up a musical jingle about that too. Oh no, I already started thinking up one in my head!
You might live near me although I hadn’t heard about the tumbleweed tree. It’s a great idea – very sustainable. Is it the same Chandler that has the Ostrich festival?
Chandler, AZ? Sorry…I was trying to figure out where on earth Chandler, OK would find that many tumbleweeds!! lol! I would love to see it! Will have to google them. Go ahead Delores, write that jingle. We wanna hear it! ♥
A great thought. I vote for you to write the jingle! ♪ ♪ ♫ ♪
Thanksgiving is over and this spry, little jingle is a great way to start off the Christmas holiday … has my toes tapping.

🙂 Loving your attitude ♥ Enjoy your weekend! paula ~
That is so catchy! The cartoon commercial is so cute, and Santa plowing into the snow bank is fun. I love jingles. We need more of them.:-)
I have little jingles in my head from when I was itty bitty. Some of them make no sense at all….but I still break into song when they pop into my noggin! lol!
Cute! I love your blog, and I want to share the Blog of the Year 2012 with you. http://wp.me/2jC53 Have a great holiday season as you jingle through Dec. 🙂
You are a doll….thanks so much! 🙂
You’re blog is lovely and thank you for liking my previous short story! I have written another if you are interested in reading it and this too is Christmas related! Thanks again!! X http://amylturk.wordpress.com/2012/12/13/a-christmas-date/
I am headed over to check it out now! Thanks so much! ♥
This post totally cracked me up. 4 years ago when I arrived in OK, having “American” thanksgiving dinner at my friends place…this comes on TV. The whole room stops, stares, and bursts into song! My family and I stood there in awe, wondering what the heck was happening. Now…we sing right along! It truly is a unique OK tradition!
That is SOOOOO funny! When we lived in AR and MO…folks looked at us strangely when we would all “break into song”. It’s not Christmas around here til ya sing it! If you haven’t been to their store to visit….it’s just fun. I love that you are a Canadian Okie….it should be that way. You have shared your trees with us for years! 😉
