Christmas is going to be different from the norm for many of us. Regardless of how you’re celebrating it, I hope you have a safe and wonderful time. Spread love, not germs!
Hoping you had a fantastic holiday season! Mine was filled with memorable moments with family and delicious meals. Also, gifts! I got absolutely spoiled. Fingers crossed that the gifts I gave in return give you as much joy as the stuff you got me.
Here are a few things underneath my tree this year!
Hoping you have a wonderful holiday season filled with delicious food, quality time with your loved ones, and everything you asked Santa for sitting underneath your tree. We’ll continue our regularly-scheduled program tomorrow. That said, if you’d like to hang out here anyway, get comfy by the fireplace and enjoy a few more quality holiday tunes!
Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!
In a previous post, I wrote about my wife and I’s intensive screening process for modern Christmas music. We listen to almost every modern Christmas album as they’re released, keeping only the best tracks for our own master playlist. Here are a few tracks to consider adding to your personal mix!
I used to vehemently hate Christmas music.
That animosity came from my time in retail. For nine holiday seasons, my store played the exact same set of Christmas songs. They didn’t even have enough tracks to fill out the full day. Many of the tracks were different renditions of the same handful of songs. I was sick of them after my first week. By year nine, I had ground my teeth down to the gums as the abomination that is “Wonderful Christmas Time” by Paul McCartney assaulted my ears far too many times to count. I’m sure if I went back to that store now, they’re still playing those same songs from that woefully-inadequate setlist.
A few years ago, with the help of my wife Steff, I found an activity that makes Christmas music more enjoyable. It’s grown into a holiday tradition for us. Maybe it would be something you would enjoy too!
‘Tis the season for Turkey, winter wonderlands, and quality time with the family. Also, gifts. Heck yes!
Here are a couple of games on my Christmas wish list this year. What are you hoping to find underneath your Christmas tree this time around?
Merry belated Christmas everyone! Hope the holiday season has been good to you. It was a hectic one for Steff and I, as we drove up and down Ontario in order to participate in the holiday festivities with all four sides of our families. During that time, gifts were exchanged, and I hope I brought smiles to those on my list in the same way that they made me smile with everything given to me. Thank you all!
Not that I don’t like them, but I’ll leave the non-nerdy stuff aside for this post. Let’s talk about all the nerdy stuff I got!
Hoping you all had a blast this holiday season! For me, it was great to spend a lot of time with my family. Got to spread the joy of board games with my younger cousins by giving them a copy of King of Tokyo, which they loved. Got to spend Christmas day with Steff’s dad’s side of the family; a first for me after all of these years. Best of all, our schedules worked out in a way where Steff and I didn’t have to split up in order to visit all of our respective families.
I may be getting up there in age, though that didn’t stop my loved ones from spoiling me. Hopefully my gifts, love and Christmas cheer were enough to reciprocate, because I definitely got hooked up! This post highlights the stuff that is relevant to the site, though I’m also appreciative of the t-shirts, socks, ties, and Taylor Swift concert tickets (!!!) I got as well. Now let’s look at the goods!
