Lurk = Off

Hello, all. My name is Tim, and I've been a member here for years and years. I've mainly lurked here, looking for ideas on how to get more out of my Christmas. Well, now that Christmas 2012 has come and gone, I've decided that our beloved forums needs to be a place where I not only visit but often participate as well. I don't have the post-Christmas blues. In fact, I'm looking forward to getting my prep for Christmas 2013 into full swing. It's more that this is such a positive place. I want to keep my holiday spirit going year round, and this is just the place to do it. I want to share ideas for making the most of all the holidays, and I want some encouragement to avoid what happened to me this Christmas - I felt overwhelmed by so much and worked right up until just a couple of days before the 25th. I felt like I missed so much of the season because I was busy doing so much work.

So, thanks for keeping these forums so active and alive throughout the year. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you and I hope to be participating in the threads often!!!! Merry Christmas!
