Do You Know Where Your Christmas Lists And Decorations Are Hiding?

Posted 09-18-2012 at 09:41 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Wow, let me blow the dust off the keyboard, it has been a long while since I have posted on my blog.
Mid-September, Halloween is in the stores and in the air, the first hints of Christmas in the retail world is now upon us. I feel a little behind in my Christmas preparation, I haven't even started doing my own Christmas list yet. We don't know what to get the kids yet, they are difficult for some reason without any items that really stick out this year. My wife, I don't know what she wants this year, I usually have my mind made up by now of what to get her.
My decorations are sitting down in the basement waiting for their 2012 unveiling, I know I need to replace items this year, I believe I have to replace at least 5 strands of white mini-lights among other things.
2012 could be a great Christmas season, I just need to get my act together or my decorating and shopping seasons could be running into the dreaded "last minute."

The World's Largest Christmas Party -- Again!

Posted 09-16-2012 at 11:20 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

Tucked away in a dark corner of the Merry Forums is a discussion area off-limits to most the merry faithful -- a private little get away for the Christmas Crew.

I set the area up years ago. I was attempting to follow the advice of forum managing webmasters who ran big communities. We weren't big, by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought we'd get there and we would need a place to discuss all the thorny issues of running a public gathering place.

Alas, our deliberations over forum member fights, spammers, grossly over-opinionated posters and other nasty elements so often associated with Internet communities never really took root in our crew areas. Folks at Christmas, it appears, are altogether too nice. By and large we don't have many problems to deal with.

So our crew area has become more of a giant brain-storming area for My Merry Christmas. Our prolific Christmas Crew -- the very cream of our membership, in fact -- come by when they...

Why I love Christmas

Posted 09-11-2012 at 05:52 PM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

1. The lights
2. The trees
3. It snows so beautifully in December
4. My house smells of cloves and cinnamon
5. Gifts wrapped in different colorful papers
6. Spending time with family and friends
7. Christmas music on the radio
8. Baking cookies and treats
9. I get to eat Turkey x3!
10. I get to see the smiles on the faces of the children I know when Santa comes
11. It makes me imagine what Christmas time will be like when I have children....
12. I get to meet friends who share the same love of the holidays as I do.


I could go on and on... but dinner is ready!
LOVE YA!

More Than Just a Day

Posted 09-11-2012 at 12:20 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

Over on Facebook I'm seeing lots of images and reminders of 9/11. Most of the sentiments say something to the effect of "Never Forget".

That seems a little too little when it comes to talking about that day. I forget how small my children were then and how young so many folks I know now were on that fateful day.

Maybe it makes me sound old. But I just cannot forget that day. And I think it is important we all share and archive our personal stories from that day.

Everyone has a personal story from that day. You didn't have to be in New York to be affected by it.

For me, the Internet makes the world so much smaller. And it was so true that day, too.

I was in Utah and it was a busy morning. I was preparing for what was called then my "Christmas Meeting". I worked for a retailer whose business was tied to a successful Christmas selling season and it was the biggest meeting of the year for me.

I was new with...
