Welcome to our newest member, AMcLoud
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.

Snow In the Desert

I am sitting here dejected tonight, you all know my dream of owning, and running my own Christmas store, I just don't know if I have what it takes. I visited a couple of Christmas stores over this past weekend, of course they happen to be a couple of the biggest in the state, with the financial backing of Yankee Candle and Kringle Candle respectively. I just looked around and shook my head, I don't know if or how I can compete with those two heavy hitters just over an hour away from me. I know "mom & pop" stores are a dying breed in this extremely corporate world, and I though I could make a difference, but seeing what they have to offer, just makes me wonder if I am dreaming too big, but what is life without dreams, and what is life without risks. I noticed when I was looking around, they don't offer basic things for Christmas all year long, they don't sell Christmas lights, or garland, which is stuff that could be used for parties, weddings, etc... They seem to aim for...

Another Dream (sequel to Xmas365 & Sons Light & Design)

Okay, okay, you may have heard this before or a relative facsimile of it but my mind has been freed, I know what I was meant to do, I want this to come true. My wife and I were talking about what we would do if we won that large mega millions jackpot last week, but we don't play so it didn't really matter, I asked her if she would quit her job, she told me not yet, maybe down the road but not now. She asked me the same thing, and I didn't hesitate I said yes, and then I said I would open a Christmas store. I have been thinking about the Christmas store thing ever since I read RachRon's thread about it, (thank you for planting that seed in my brain). I described I would like to own a Christmas light decorating business, but that would only be a 2 month job, this way I would be able to immerse myself in Christmas everyday for my job. Christmas makes me happy, and I would love to do something I love. The ideas of what to do, how to set it up, and such have been flowing through my brain now...
