Welcome to our newest member, flockman02
My name is Ron, I am a Christmas nut always have been always will be. I am first and foremost a stay at home dad that has an evening job at a retail/grocery establishment. After my second son was born I stepped down from my management position, so my wife and I don't have to pay for daycare. My wife is a teacher in the town we live, so people recognize us everywhere in our little town.
My wife and I have been married for 9 years. We have 2 boys aged 6 and 3, both are young Christmas nuts.

I have loved Christmas as long as I remember
from seeing the lights on all the houses, to seeing if I could stay awake to see Santa.
Christmas has been the one constant in my life it has always been there for me, through the rough times of my parents divorce when I was 10 y/o or my mother's passing when I was 16.
Everyone always tried to make it something special for myself and sister when we were young no matter what was going on. I now believe that is why I love this time of year more than any other because of the efforts of my family to hold it above any other time of year. I get to make the season special for my boys now, whether it be by playing the music decorating the house and yard or just playing the dvd's. The memories the season has brought have always warm and it is no wonder why I look forward to making more of these memories every year. My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story my favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. My favorite Christmas artist is Bing Crosby.
Well if I ran on a little bit I am sorry I am new to blogging, it sounds always better in your mind.
I will try to keep posting and making it interesting for all who read.

While looking at this Christmas and many of the Christmases past I see three constants that ring true for as many as I can remember. We all talk of Christmas being the birth of Jesus, the holiest night of the year with the spirit of giving being passed from year to year. The second one is of course Santa Claus, he does his magical flight every year starting the 24th of December giving those gifts to all the children. Then there is a third who is just as much part of Christmas in a different way as Christmas trees, lights, and cookies. He is in countless movies such as A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, Polar Express, etc... He is at every Christmas party I attend, in my car, at the mall and so on. He wakes us up on Christmas morning with his voice. I look at the holiday season and cannot think of him not being there. Much like the anticipation of the season builds to a frenzy in October, he starts slowly reappearing around that time in a different role.
I am speaking of my favorite Christmas performer/crooner Bing Crosby his music is what drives the season, I love most Christmas music but there is something about Bing that makes it feel like Christmas. I have 4 CD's of his and many of the same songs on various CD's, but his singing and performances in White Christmas, and Holiday Inn, is part of the whole Christmas experience. I was only 2 when he passed, but he has been at every Christmas I have ever had, and I suppose every Christmas most everyone has had. I just would like to say he will forever be welcomed at all my Christmases.

    Ron, what a nice blog. I agree. There are certain artists or songs that have also been with me at Christmas and listening to them makes Christmas come right back !! Bing had a wonderful, incredible voice !!! I also loved his movies, especially the ones where he played a priest. He was such a gifted man and one of the few who also makes me think "Christmas" instantenously when I hear his voice........Blessings
