I love Christmas--club

Just had to start a different club. Too many haters out there.

Even if your initials are K.T. and you post here it means you love Christmas. I do not care for the commercial side of it, but overall Christmas is Great.

Some people are just too over-achieving.

You want Christmas lights? The street two down from mine rents decorations for the entire dead end cul-du-sac. Each year it has gotten more and more elaborate, this year people are touring the street anytime after dark. I really need to get a picture of it.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I've always loved Christmas! It's a blast, and I get to spend time with the family.

The lights are the best.
A guy in Little Rock named Osburn use to put one of the best light shows up every year. He bought the houses next to him just to decorate them as well. Pilots claimed they could see the house on a clear night from Memphis. We would make an annual trip there for it. You may remember the state shutting him down. The neighbors complained about the traffic. He started a "Right to Light" campain. He hired 30+ engineers and a lot of workers 6 month out of the year to put up and take down the decorations. I have loved the lights every since he blew a transformer.

Welcome to the club. If it takes free light installation to get you in, so be it.

I just hope KT doesn't hold his anti-Christmas party on the same day. I don't want to have to choose.

Glad to see you've come to your senses and joined the "I Love Christmas Club". By posting in this thread you null and void your previous commitment to KT's Court. Welcome and Merry Christmas.

IIRC you were captured by KT. We will have to trade hostages. Were free to go back to our own sides now.
