Monopoly, There's Really Only One Day When There's Enough Time for It

The date says December twenty-fourth, it's Christmas Eve for certain (Muppets reference anyone).  So we only have to put up with my Christmas loving self for two more days and then I can go back to my old scroogey self.  But since that hasn't happened yet, let's go on to round seven.

I like that Christmas is a day of chilling out, just when you get some new stuff and your family is forced to play it with you.  Every year we get board games, and movies, and video games, and what's the first thing you want to do with these things:  Play with them with other people, and what is Christmas great for:  A house full of people to play them with.  My wife and I decided to give ourselves Rock Band this year, and we are so excited to have the other two instruments taken up by people in our family, and I'm sure Rock Band won't be the only gift shared.  We'll watch new movies and play new games and generally have a great time with each other.

Christmas morning is a great time to solidify bonds you have with other people.  It's a great morning for uninterrupted fun.  It's a great time for family and friends to come closer together without all of the frustrating interruptions and cares that so often get in the way.

So, only one more sleep til Christmas, I hope you've all been naughty so Santa doesn't have to drive so much in the snow. :)
