Welcome to our newest member, Sandy Horton
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 recently touched on my youth beliefs in Santa in the thread "Parents Don't Want Their Kids to Know of Santa Claus" I would like to delve into that subject a little more.
As I said I believed in Santa a long time, well into my teen years maybe I should have seen the writing on the wall, but I truly believed, to the point where I would argue with my cousins he did exist. My early childhood was the Rockwellian vision of the perfect American family, Mom, Dad, and a little sister and a dog and cat, we had a little ranch house everything was picture perfect in the eyes of a boy of under 8 years old. Much like it is now for me I could not wait for Christmas, once I started seeing those Time/Life Treasury of Christmas Record commercials in September I started to get psyched for Christmas. We always had a real tree and we would let the branches "fall" outside overnight before decorating it, I always hated that, I wanted to decorate right then and there. Then the focus...
