Welcome to our newest member, ajb1946
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.

Xmas365 & Sons Light & Design

Posted 10-18-2010 at 09:20 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have been thinking about doing something with my professional life for a while now and I keep coming back to one thing I have been thinking about for a number of years now. Unfortunately it would be a seasonal type of job, only from maybe October - January. I would like to do outside design and decorating for the holiday season starting with Halloween right through Christmas then do the taking down of the decorations in January. I read about it in the newspaper, I believe 5-6 years ago and I have thought about it ever since. The job I have now would not be conducive to that schedule and hence why it is just a thought at the moment. I would probably have to have some training in electric work and that would probably take a few years , but I always look forward to doing my own lights and decorating outside, I nearly take a month to do my own, between inside and out. I don't mind working in the cold considering I work in a freezer where it is -20* F to 0*F many days, I spend hours in there....
