Merry Christmas, one and y’all

Merry Christmas AP

(As the founders of this website are West Virginia natives — and I’m now officially a resident of God’s Country — we are contractually obligated to include at least one “y’all” followed by a minimum of on e exclamation point in any holiday greeting. We apologize for any confusion and/or angst this may have caused.)

Before diving headfirst into today’s festivities, I just wanted to copy & paste last year’s post drop in and wish a sincere and heartfelt “Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah/Exhilarating Kwanzaa!” from all (two) of us here at CFT to all of you who happen to stop by on this most sacred of days.

Needless to say, we’ll be in and out and in and out throughout the day, hopping onto the laptops and/or desktops and/or tablets and/or smartphones when events warrant. And my wife allows it.

So, with that out of the way, it’s now off to a day filled with family, giving & receiving, a few (too many) holiday ales and dealing with those damned twist-tie thingies that are surgically wrapped around almost every crucial square inch of every toy produced these days, and whose inventor(s) should be kicked square in his jingle bells without discretion for what he’s wrought on parents the world over.

    A Merry Christmas to you JT and to Ben and yours as well as all regulars (and irregulars) here on CFT!

    At least an honorable mention for frustrating packaging should be the “blister packs” or similar packaging around all CDs, DVDs, game carts, etc. I have tried sharp scissors and now they won’t cut paper. I have tried box cutters and almost cut off my finger. We need a new cutter just for these packagings. (wearing several bandages across my in left index finger), I am ready for sleep, having worked all night to “assemble” gifts for the kids. Santa Claus will now retire to hibernation for awhile.

    The 3 most dreaded words in the English language? “Some assembly required.”

    Merry Christmas JT to you and your family, Ben’s too of course. Hope you all have a blessed day.

    I’ll echo #alligatorsnapper’s wishes to all who post on CFT as well. Merry Christmas everyone! (JT, the exclamation point was for you :) ) God bless.

    Merry Christmas. I kind of miss the days of the occasionally bowl game on Christmas, it’s good to have options outside of NBA Basketball.

    Christmas is what you make of it, and similar holidays were celebrated long before the birth of Christ. There is no one reason for the season.

    “We need a new cutter just for these packagings. (wearing several bandages across my in left index finger)”

    Try a can opener.

    Not being snarky – Google it; they work.

    Ya’ll is one of the most convenient words in the English language. And no it has nothing to do with laziness. Yankees are just too ignorant to embrace it now, but as ice tea, boiled peanuts and grits have migrated north, soon you will be hearing “How bout them Patriots, Ya’ll!!” :)

    I guess I qualify to be an “irregular” here on CFT, in more than one way, but I do wish all a

    Happy Christmas and New Year!

    With ice and snow all around me it does seem more like Christmas this year. I thought this year I would have to explain to my daughter that Santa Claus was not real, but she came to me and explained it all to me! ha. That made my year! In addition, she told me what Christmas was all about!

    Out of the mouth of babes…!!!
