    BEST EPISODE EVER!!! We couldn’t stop laughing! Jingle Brawl is such a difficult choice, going to get even harder once it is narrowed down to Barry, Brian and Frank (mark my words, this WILL be what it comes down to in the end!) Thank you for the wonderful podcast 🙂

    Such a great episode! I tried to think of another “after Christmas is over” thing and couldn’t. I think you nailed them all. I miss playing my Christmas playlist but thankfully Netflix still has Mickey’s Once (and Twice) Upon A Christmas so I can watch those again… with my son. Yep.

    I love the podcasts. I have a reminder on my phone set for the 25th of each month to remind me to check out the podcast. By the way, the 25th of each month is Rudolph Day. If you have never heard of it Google it to check out the details. This month’s podcast was the best one yet. I’m certain that with each episode they’ll get even more polished.

    It’s January 30th and the TREE is still up in my office at work (albeit without the decorations). I still see a few decorations lit up on my drive home from work each evening. I noticed on January 28th, one house still had a full sized tree lit up on the front porch as well as another just inside the front door beside the staircase.

    Note to all of you Christmas junkies like me:
    Even though I consider Labor Day as the beginning of all the holidays, the anunciation to Mary of her being chosen to conceive, carry and give birth to JESUS could be considered as the beginning of the Christmas season! The Catholic Church recognizes April 4th this year as that date. However, 40 weeks (280 days) is considered a full term pregnancy. I am certain that our SAVIOR was neither early nor late but rather perfectly on time! This being said, it would put the Miraculous Conception on March 20th and so the Anunciation would have been before that. Don’t misunderstand me, I am not saying anything against the Catholic Church. I dearly love all of my fellow brother and sister Christians regardless of the denomination. I just wanted to point out that by March 20th you can consider the Christmas season as begun! 🙂

      Hi Miles: The Catholic Church does set aside March 25th as the exact day of the Annunciation. However, it doesn’t seem worthy of Mary to have the Annunciation during Lent. So, except when March 25 is on a Sunday, Mary’s “holiday” is celebrated after Easter.
