Who can top this as the most epic Christmas card of all time? By popular request we re-post this just as folks are getting ready to put together their thoughts for sending Christmas cards for the season. We don’t expect anyone, of course, to bee this creative…or dangerous…or flexible, for that matter. Still…. Chuck’s famous Christmas split was, of course, based on this wildly popular commercial by Volvo:
It is understandable enough to mix up the words now and then — especially if the song you are singing is a 500-year old Christmas carol. But to do it on purpose just to drive people crazy or to get a response — well, that takes talent. The first thing to catch my eye in this video is the fact that this was filmed on the streets of Salt Lake City during Christmastime. Salt Lake is one of the unsung Christmas cities in America with one of the largest light displays available on Temple Square. Located in the heart ofRead more
O Holy Night is a Christmas song much like the national anthem. When someone who knows what they are doing it is quite inspiring. But in the hands of amateurs it can be painful.

Our reasons for saying the things we want have more to do with pride than actual need or even desire for a certain gift. I won’t get into to the psycho-babble of it all. Let’s instead get down to the nitty gritty and just list the 17 simple rules of what to get for men. (I’m a man, this is how we roll): Rule #1: When in doubt – buy him a cordlessRead more
