What if we all put our phones away this Christmas season? I’m not saying throw your phone into the ocean for the month of December. I’m talking about scaling back on time staring at a screen.

If we’re on our phones we miss what’s going on around us and at Christmas time that can mean missing something huge!

What if Ebenezer Scrooge had been on his phone the whole time the three ghosts were trying to change him? What if this is the last Christmas your whole family gets to spend together (zombie outbreak or an alien invasion is just around the corner!)? What if you’re related to George Clooney and you’ll never find out unless you start asking questions at Christmas time?! Get off your phone! George Clooney is at stake!

Here are some other things you might miss… (more…)

There are great Christmas songs and then are terrible Christmas songs. In my opinion, one of the worst is 12 Days of Christmas. When was the last time you really thought through those lyrics? It’s just a list of awful presents the writer has received from their “true love.” If my “true love” gave me these things I’d rethink my relationship.

Let’s look at these gifts. (more…)

New Ways to Go Christmas Caroling

 

THE PEANUTS GANG REJOICES IN THE TRUE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

This post is a part of CHRISTMAS FOREVER. There are live shows, free content, and several bloggers contributing posts to spread Christmas cheer. You can find all of that here.

A big Christmas tradition that everyone knows about but no one actually does in real life is going door to door and singing Christmas carols.

What Is Caroling?

Apparently no one knows the origin of Christmas caroling. It just happened one day? Some believe it began in feudal societies, since back then the poor would some times have to “sing for their supper.” Some cultures still have this. Children will “sing for their supper” while the elderly will “disco for their dinner” and “breakdance for brunch.” (more…)

Christmas time usually means having to sit through at least one terrible children’s production. It could be a choir concert at an elementary school or some sort of play production starring babies at your local church. Growing up I was involved in both. (more…)

I’ve Got a lot of Regrets

Regrets - Wish I was Here - death bedIf you got to the end of your life and were allowed to do it all over gain, what would be the biggest thing you’d want to change?

I’ve wanted a lot of do overs in my life. Dealing with regrets is a big deal with me. That’s why I love the idea of time travel stories. You get to go back and fix things! How great is that?! I could go back to every Jr. High dance and actually ask the girl out before the last slow song. You reading this, Meghan?! We could still be together! (more…)

Nipples & Other Important Issues

Andy's Nipples The Office

Let’s talk about something really important: my nipples. Can you see them through my shirt? If you could would you tell me? “Hey man. Everyone is looking at your nipples and it’s awful.”

This is why I don’t like wearing plain white t-shirts. I’m afraid my little chest buddies are going to be screaming through the material and no one is going to want to talk to me. No one will be able to focus. Fast food workers, traffic cops, sports mascots. No one will be able to pay attention when I’m embarrassing myself with a white t-shirt on. (more…)
