Like any self-respecting Geek, I know how to obsess over something, and one of my obsessions is decorating for the holidays. I limit myself to the fall build up to Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I don’t decorate for Easter, New Years, Halloween, etc. So every time I see something I like I get it. We have two tote boxes full of Thanksgiving “decorations,” and about five for Christmas. I will create things and purchase things to go along with my theme, and heaven help anyone who stands in my way.
Somehow Michael Dorn has managed to become a Thanksgiving staple in our house, but I need some help confirming that he should rightfully be there. Best known for the role of Lieutenant Commander Worf on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, he has been part of our Christmas tradition for many years now, for his portrayal of the sand man in Tim Allen’s Santa Clause movies. Several years ago, I purchased the above bear from The Christmas Tree shops. It’s a Hallmark bear that tells the Hallmark version of the story of Thanksgiving, no violence included. The thing is, I swear it’s Michael Dorn’s voice telling the story. The first time I heard it, I ran around the house shrieking “It’s Worf! It’s Worf.” While my husband and sister-in-law both hear what I’m hearing, they are reluctant to commit. The box did not credit Michael Dorn, nor do any of the biographies I can find.
So help me please! Do you have this bear, and is it a Michael Dorn Thanksgiving?
