I wanted to take a couple of minutes to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Once upon a time, we were allowed to say “Merry Christmas” without having to worry about offending (or excluding) anyone, but now days we also have to say Happy Holidays, or have a great Hanukkah (is that even the right context?), or hope your Kwanzaa celebration is blessed. Oh for a simpler time.
I am a Christian, so I am going to keep it simple, and wish you and yours a Merry Christmas. With that said, this Season, whatever it is you happen to celebrate is a time for reflection. This is a time to be thankful for family, friends, and all our many blessings. Thanks to Geoff and Kevin for taking time to write for the site – your virtual friendship is much appreciated. A special thanks to Chris for keeping the lights on around here – it is always a blast to read your entertaining takes on sports, gaming, and life in general. Seriously, “Like football, marriage requires a balanced attack. And some shopping money.” is a wonderfully delicious quote, and a great observation on marriage.
Of course it goes without saying that I am thankful for you regular Recycle Bin readers. Insert joke – all two of you. For the last four years I have had a great time ranting, rambling, and writing about next to nothing. None of this would have been possible without a willing (even if somewhat reluctant) audience.
There is much more to be thankful for, but the day is young. Happy Christmas!
