Welcome to our newest member, williamjohn
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 sitting here unable to sleep, yet I am exhausted. I have a couple of hours before I have to go in to work, so I can enjoy the quiet for now.
I have really enjoyed this site, especially the forum, where it has been fun either giving opinions or just doing the fun and games, but I have to say my favorite thread recently has been "You Know You Grew Up in the 80's if..." This thread has brought back many memories of my youth, and I have posted on it many times in the past few weeks, especially with old commercials from the 80's. It has really helped me recall many memories I had repressed. When my mother passed away from cancer in 1991 I was only 16, and for the longest time I couldn't recall many of my memories pre-1991.
Even though nearly 20 years have passed and a lot of those memories have returned, this is the first time I have been able to remember a lot of fun items, including commercials,and some old TV shows.
I have been thinking of some Christmas collectibles lately, about a year ago I bought a 16 card Santa Claus trading card set that actually includes Santa's "rookie" card, a card that has a swatch of his suit, and an autographed card, plus 13 more. I thought it was, and is, a very cool item. I have been trying to find more of them and I have found some on Ebay so I think this may be something I will be collecting from now on.
