Andy in NYC

Hello All,

My name is Andy. I live in New York City. They say it's going to be 100 degrees today. I'm guessing that information permeated my brain and that manifested itself as me thinking, "Hmmm... I wonder if there are any Christmas forums online?" I guess that's my mind's way of trying to beat the heat.

As with most of you, I really enjoy Christmas, or perhaps even more-so, Christmastime. It almost seems like an alternate universe we slip into for 6 weeks every year. I mean, if you spent two weeks planning what types of cookies you wanted to make in June you'd be a sociopath, but at Christmas it's perfectly normal!

I'm looking forward to checking in here for a taste of Christmastime year-round and getting to know some of the other members here.

You are in perfect company with us! We think Christmas all year long!

I like your thinking, "It almost seems like an alternate universe we slip into for 6 weeks every year". I don't think these forums ever slip out ofthat alternate universe! So you will have to endure more than 6 weeks with us!

I have already been listening to Christmas music and watching Christmas movies, just like most of us here have.

Enjoy your time on the forums!
