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.

I am writing this as I have just witnessed something disgusting in the center of my town, I am not writing this too be polarizing, or "preach from a soapbox."
I ran to the grocery store before picking up my son, and I saw something in front of Dunkin Donuts that I thought that I could not believe was there. I ran to pick up my son, and I felt like I had to drive by it again to be sure of what I saw. Someone set up in front of Dunkin Donuts, a table with a few posters of President Barack Obama made to look like Adolph Hitler, with signs saying "impeach Obama." I could not care about the impeach signs, that is their Freedom of Speech right, but when you put it with posters that make him look like one of the most evil men in history, that is crossing the line. I don't care if it was Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, or Ronald Reagan, that is crossing the line, the people we elect, no matter who they are and if you like them or not, none of our presidents should be put in with the likes of Hitler. I do not offend easily, but this did it for me. I stay away from politics on here, (for the most part) and I don't want to talk about politics here. I come here to escape the news cycle, but this time I just needed to get this off my chest. I already sent off an email to Dunkin Donuts, stating I don't plan on going back to their stores for allowing such posters to be placed 10-15 feet from their front entrance door. I hope I did not offend anyone.

    I agree with you. It is completely inappropriate to depict any president in that light. To me, it does little to support whatever point of view they are espousing.

    Unfortunately, there might not be much Dunkin Donuts can do about it. I know in most of my businesses a public sidewalk in front of an establishment is just that -- public. Depends on the set up. A big store like Target can avoid protesters in front of their doors because their private property extends to the public road. But a little place like Dunkin Donuts likely doesn't have that kind of space.

    That crosses the line from political opinion to being deliberately inflammatory.
