Welcome to our newest member, TeamYANTSU
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.

400+ Days Of Christmas Songs

Posted 02-17-2013 at 09:40 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Just after Christmas 2011, I was trying to figure out something to do to keep my focus on Christmas, and not the Post-Christmas Blues. I had in my mind a plan to try to listen to a Christmas song a day whether it be on MCR, Youtube, or pull out a CD. Then I thought it would be more fun to share my plan with my family on MMC and write a little blurb about it daily. So on January 1, 2012 Christmas Song a Day, All Year Long Thread was born.

New Year's Day is one of the most depressing day of the year to me, just because that is the milestone when a lot of people feel that the Christmas Season is over, and being such a Christmas nut I find that a very hard thing to get over. On that January morning I selected my first song "Christmas Auld Lang Syne" by Bobby Darin, I brought that song out on New Year's Day just to tie up a nice little bow on Christmas and New Year's together. I received encouraging words from the very beginning from all of you, and I started by going...
