Welcome to our newest member, JoseChung
My name is Ron, I am a Christmas nut always have been always will be. I am first and foremost a stay at home dad that has an evening job at a retail/grocery establishment. After my second son was born I stepped down from my management position, so my wife and I don't have to pay for daycare. My wife is a teacher in the town we live, so people recognize us everywhere in our little town.
My wife and I have been married for 9 years. We have 2 boys aged 6 and 3, both are young Christmas nuts.

I have loved Christmas as long as I remember
from seeing the lights on all the houses, to seeing if I could stay awake to see Santa.
Christmas has been the one constant in my life it has always been there for me, through the rough times of my parents divorce when I was 10 y/o or my mother's passing when I was 16.
Everyone always tried to make it something special for myself and sister when we were young no matter what was going on. I now believe that is why I love this time of year more than any other because of the efforts of my family to hold it above any other time of year. I get to make the season special for my boys now, whether it be by playing the music decorating the house and yard or just playing the dvd's. The memories the season has brought have always warm and it is no wonder why I look forward to making more of these memories every year. My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story my favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. My favorite Christmas artist is Bing Crosby.
Well if I ran on a little bit I am sorry I am new to blogging, it sounds always better in your mind.
I will try to keep posting and making it interesting for all who read.

As another great hockey season came to a close last night, I was able to sit back and reflect on the season as a fan. Many of you probably can tell by reading my posts I am a hockey fanatic. I will always say that in sports terms baseball was my first love, but hockey is my true love. Growing up in New England during the 80's and 90's you could always count on two things, the Red Sox breaking your heart, and the Bruins making the playoffs, the latter set a record making the playoffs 29 years straight. I spent many winter days playing hockey on the frozen ponds for hours, until it got to dark to see, I was never a great skater but I was playing hockey and that is all that mattered. Growing up I was always a Bruins fan, and I started following Mario Lemieux, I was in awe of his talent, the moves he made, the accuracy of his shot, I became a Penguins fan also, so the Bruins are #1 and the Pens #1A to me. This season didn't end like I wished when both my teams lost in the second round, but the excitement of the Stanley Cup kept me coming back to watch, even though I had no rooting interest I did pull for the 'Hawks and their fans and the result was a great series. Hockey had a great year with the Winter Classic in Fenway Park, the great Gold Medal game between USA & Canada, Alex Ovechkin vs Sidney Crosby, and the soon to be NHL draft where my Bruins have the #2 pick to give "us" the "can't miss" prospect of either Tyler Seguin or Taylor Hall, and the free agent season. I already cannot wait until the first week of October when it will all start over again. (we will be so much closer to Christmas also)

Thank you, NHL!
