Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Why would you have invited a terrible cunt of an ex-girlfriend to previous Christmases?

    I got TIE Fighter for Christmas. That was a good year.

    When my sister and I were young, my father would talk buddies of his into calling our house at the beginning of December, pretending to be Santa Claus himself. They'd ask whether we'd been good and double-check what we wanted to receive that year.

    The first time, we of course assumed that it was my dad playing a trick on us when - surprise! - he walked into the room while we were on the phone with Santa.

    Those were good times.

    A vast majority of the stuff the general population associates with Christmas has no roots in Christianity at all.

    Story time!

    Last xmas, me, my SO, and one of our roomies (the other 2 had left before it got really bad) were snowed in for the holidays. We decided that despite not being able to see our families, we were gonna have a merry fucking xmas.

    It was decided that we should do a gift exchange, so to the liquor store we went. Each got a fifth of their choosing and then we drew names. We then got the Grinch queued up via On Demand and proceeded to drink. Eventually, my SO and roomie got a lil competitive with their drinking. Me, forgetting that I am a lightweight, joined them.

    2/3 ish through the movie, we break for food. Lil smokies. Last thing I recall was the food being almost done. Now, some back story... Up until this point, I had blacked out twice. Both times people tell me that I didn't change much, just that I got a bit more polite. This time was different. I am told I got VERY angry. I think I was just confused and frustrated about getting sick.

    That isn't the reason I brought up this story. I tell it today because on that night, I somehow lost my glasses.

    Even after Velma-searching the house, I couldn't find my glasses. I had no idea where they went. No one else had seen them, or remembered what I had done with them. Eventually, I give up and make an appointment to get new glasses. This made for an interesting couple of weeks, as things get blurry 4-6 inches from my face.

    Of course, a few months after I get my new glasses, my old ones turn up.

    My daughter was born on the 21st (she was a little early), but it has really reinvigrated my Christmas spirit. Christmas is a lot more enjoyable for me with a little kid in the house. I probably haven't had as much fun since I was little.

    I always find this to be incredible. The whole event itself is just so amazing.

    It's telling that officers on both sides were adamantly against any form of official or unofficial truce being declared, and that after the first year at war it become rare to the point of nonexistence, but if you guys really dig the Christmas Truce there's a book called Silent Night by Stanley Weintraub that is a popular-nonfiction (by which I mean, readable and shortish, as opposed to the honking big tomes I generally collect) account of the events.
