As a child growing up in the 1980’s, I was never shielded from the rampant consumerism this decade  is well known for. The xmas holidays always conjure the sweetest childhood memories. One memory I hold pretty dear is that of shopping at the big department stores of the era. I remember Hills with […]

Happy Saturnalia! It’s that time of year again. It’s the Most Ignorant Time of the year. We have come to that time of year when the xtians complain about the secular war on “their” holiday.  My kids and I have to endure the dirty looks, snide comments and general inconsiderate natures […]

Today someone enlightened me about a super amazing xmas reindeer fact!  (thanks Danny)  It seems we have called a few of Old Santa’s reindeer by at least three different names over time.  I found this so interesting I had to write a blog about it!
