Tis the season to be rich with love and hot cocoa. The frost from outside will only keep you cold for so long. This is what we need hot beverages for. That way we can come inside and sit in our pajamas, while holding a delicious and warming drink of your choice. With all this being said, what is our favorite drink (hot or cold) during the Christmas season? 

My top seven hot drinks are quite familiar, but they are what I love to drink!!! If you are a fan of any of my choices, give this a big thumbs up. If you dont, then tell me what you drink!

1. Peppermint hot cocoa!- probably the best drink ever. A minty refreshing taste while also getting a warm chocolate blast. 

2. Apple Cider- Either warm or cold, cider is worth a drink in the middle of winter! 

3. Regular hot cocoa- sometimes I like to be simple. This is when I pull out the plain cocoa and make a delightful glass!

4. Warm tea- usually I drink sweet ice tea, but during the winter I find myself drinking a lot more hot tea!

5.  Egg nog- I haven’t been a big fan of eggnog since I tried alcoholic eggnog, but I still would rank it in my top 7. 

6. Coffee (mochas and lattes)- I’m a white girl!

7. Sparkling white grape juice. All I can say is…..YUM!

What are your favorite holiday drinks? What do you recommend???? 

Let me know!

I have a few reasons to love the Christmas times. Most of them are because of the food, but I have made a lit to show you the main top 10 reasons that I absolutely love this time of year. Take a seat, find your hot cocoa and enjoy my creative list. You will be mad if you miss out on knowing these! Enjoy!

10. The amazing last minute gift shoppers. There’s nothing more heart melting than seeing people rush through Wal-Mart doors on Christmas eve, in search for the perfect gift for someone they love! I want to applaud when I see this, it truly shows that they love that person so much. Something that warms my heart more is when they are talking crap about the person they are shopping for. I’m glad that they are thoughtful and willing to give up their hard earned cash for a loved one, such spirit!

9. Snow. I couldn’t imagine Christmas without Snow! Oh wait, I live in Illinois. In the last few years we have had a ugly green Christmas. It always seems to snow in January, leaving Christmas without its beautiful white blanket! I demand that we get snow on Christmas eve, or I will kill Santa…Well, I will make Bart do it! But you still get the idea, right?

8.Christmas songs. This isn’t a joke. I really find Christmas music to be tasteful and in all ways…OVERPLAYED!!!!!! We love Christmas music, but please stop playing it at the end of November ‘til the end of February….I HAVE HAD ENOUGH….I hate going to the bathroom and while taking a healthy dump hearing “Joy to the world.” Aint nothing joyful about this…..

7. Holiday Pies from Mcdonalds……I don’t have to say anything else!!! I love those little bastards…..

6. Blogging for 12 days about Christmas/ Bart, The Reindeer on the desk. I love the 12 days I devote to this one topic. It’s fun to come up with ideas on what to write about, and every year I set off Christmas with this amazing idea. This year we brought a new friend in to help, his name is Bart. You will find him on Facebook as ‘Bart, The Reindeer On The Desk.’

5. Possible Tiger Penis. We have a present under the tree that looks like a Tiger Penis. I think Santa finally came through for me, this is amazing…..All I have ever wanted is under that tree….I’ll be so disappointed if I’m wrong…..

4. Giving is Key. Hey! I know it isn’t all about gifts, but I need everyone to know that giving isn’t as bad as you think. It is so nice to receive nice things, so you guys should take this advice and give me something really nice…Remember, Giving is key!!!

3. Family…Well, my doggy, wife and a few others….I don’t want to go outside on Christmas, so I will stay inside with my doggy and wife…anyone else that comes over is welcomed, but not really wanted….Call me a Grinch, screw you…XD

2. House Decorations. I really love to look at beautiful lights and yard decorations, especially at someone else’s expense, it is beautiful!! I think they are the real MVP. They waste all their money putting on a show, but they willingly do it,….I’m crying….one second.

1. Drivers….Oh how I love to drive in this weather, it’s such a dang joy. This isnt because of my driving, but more due to the other idiots on the road..It snowed less than an inch and three cars went off into the ditch…Like, HOW? I don’t want to deal with these people. Can I just stay inside forever?

Bonus: 11. That there are so many reasons that I have to make a bonus reason….That is the bonus…enjoy it.

I hope you enjoyed all my delightful reasons to love Christmas. I really love the holiday season, but I find it to also be stressful and hectic. These are two things that I don’t like together, and to add more chaos with dumb drivers makes it even more hard to love. But that is life….

What would be a great gift to get me? I want everyone to know that I am not a picky guy, but I do want you to buy me something nice. I can always spot a dollar tree gift over a nice expensive Wal-Mart gift. I have an eye for this kind of thing, so don’t screw around! But seriously I don’t want much for Christmas, I just want everyone to be happy and love their family. With this being said; I know some of you are dying to get me a gift, which means I cant leave you out of the circle on what I want. Here is a very short/long Christmas list of things you can buy me. Know you can buy me whatever you want, but I wont like it as much…so why not just buy what’s on the list? Don’t be cheap.

10. A Donald Trump hairpiece! They range from $3 to $29. Now, you could go cheap and get me the low end wig, but we all know what that brings. The stitches are cheap and probably will make my head itch. But I will let you decide. (Seriously, go with an expensive one….)

9. A tiger– You can go to Exoticanimalsforsale.net and find nothing, because they suck….But Havocscope.com will have what you’re looking for. Now, do know that Tigers usually go for $50,000. This is more than most of you will make in three lifetimes. Don’t fool yourself, you cant afford that….Hell you couldn’t even afford a dead one (they are $5,000,) so just continue down the line……
BTW a Tiger Penis cost $1,300.

8. Tim Tebow Jersey (signed)– Sportsmemorabilia.com has this listed for $926.99. I think everyone deserves to be treated like a king, so go ahead and treat yourself to buying me this piece of history, you deserve it!

7. Taylor Swift hoodie– a “Real men love Taylor Swift” shirt would go great with any other gift you get me. You can afford $20, I know you can! Please, I will love you forever!!!!

6. A Tiger Penis– The more I think about it, I think I want the penis of a Tiger; you know…for science of course. Just buy me a Tiger penis for the love of God.

5. God, himself! So I don’t think I can find this on the internet. You might need to get to a black market, but this would be an awesome gift for me. Could you imagine having God in your pocket?

4. All 7!!!! Dragon Balls– Daddy has a car payment, and I need the authentic dragon balls so I can wish for my car to be paid off. Or you can pay my car off…..which ever one works.

3. Friends– I think this item goes for $15 on Ebay but don’t feel pressured, you can buy the cheapo at the bottom of the list. Also, don’t express ship, I’m use to not having friends, I wont know what to do with them when I get them.

2. Bart’s wife– I think Bart is getting lonely. He is about the right age to get some Reindeer tail and I am tired of him humping his brothers leg, so please buy him a wife…It must be a girl reindeer. He likes them to have a white tail but black dots…booom, not racist!!!

1. A Browns/Bears win– You must buy both. I have faith that the Browns will win the Superbowl 51, but lately they have slipped back. I need this to change. They must win all the remaining games to be in the Superbowl, so can you buy me those wins? They might cost a lot, but you know how much that would mean to me? More than a Tiger penis! Okay, maybe not but it would come close!!!! Also a Bears win or a new Qb…..Mainly a new QB!

There you go, I gave you my list. I need all these items (especially #6!!!) by the end of the Christmas period. If you fail to do so, I will send Bart to hump your dirty leg!! He has a strong grip, so you better hurry!!! My address is 1010 E. Tiger Penis St. Bartville, Illinois. 69069. Thanks!.
Love you guys,
Impromtdude, Bart, Ginger, Francis, and Tiger (the tiger penis).

I love the Christmas season, or holiday season. The way that peoples eyes glitter in the presence of all their gifts and their loved ones warms my heart. The part that I love probably the most is the stockings. Who doesn’t want a sock full of wonderful small gifts?!? I love my stockings. This year I got one with the Letter “B” on it. That is because my name is Blake, well no crap right? Anyways I want to let everyone know what I expect in the stocking this year.

Hot sauce- Who couldn’t use hot sauce. I use hot sauce on everything! Even peanut butter and jelly. I use hot sauce in the shower. You name it and I use it there. But it has gotten expensive for the good stuff.

Any card games- I want you guys to know that I am actually a closet Yu-gi-oh player and recently I sold all of my cards, so I need you guys to buy me more. Pokémon is a option, but magic is not welcomed. I don’t get magic -.V

Surge- Only a few of you know about my crazy addiction to Surge. If you don’t know what Surge is, die! But anyways, I am talking kegs of Surge. If it wont fit, then wrap it! I am not that picky.

Money- I want all the money that you can give. I need it to play monopoly. I hide the good stuff up my sleeve during games in order to get the upper hand on my foes. So give me monopoly money!

Candy- If I don’t get kandy this Christmas this year, I will freaking cry. You really don’t want me to cry. Remember that giant flood back in New Orleans, that was because I didn’t get my candy.

Anything else that you can think of is welcomed, except fruit or veggies. I am not that healthy. So this Christmas I will be waiting!

Last night was a very good night. It was the first time that I ever went to multiple Haunted Houses in one night, and let me say it was pretty fun. Overall the night was full of jump scares, fog machines, hanging heads and chainsaws. This lead me to rate the night with a B-, overall. This will be a quick review of each haunted house of Scarefest!

    Creepyworld- I gave this certain attraction a C+. This was a huge attraction, with a total of 12 small haunted houses, all in one. The biggest problem was the over use of Chainsaws and the failure to add more jump scares. There was too many open spaces that could have been utilized for their favor. Also, the jump scares were easy to call out. This would be perfect for teenagers or the faint of heart. I didn’t find it scary, but the creativeness of the different houses made up for that.

Abyss- This location was inside a haunted brewery, down in the basement. This basement was full of fog, making it nearly impossible to see anything. It was also really dusty and muggy, as it smelt like an old basement. It became hard for me to breathe with all the dust. The fog was also bad for the jump scares, as the groups were more focused on getting through the attraction without dying, other than being scared of “the monsters.” It took us twenty minutes to get through this certain one, and I would give it a B, overall.

Silo-x- I knew Ariel would love this since it was focused around zombies. It only cost five dollars more to get a pass, and there was no line, making it perfect. I want to say this was a great house, but it wasn’t that impressive. I think it would have been better if they weren’t just wearing zombie mask. It didn’t feel real enough, if that makes sense. Other than that, I got a few zombies to follow Ariel around and scare her. I think this has great potential for future years, and it is something I would pay to do again. Grade: B

The Darkness-  I have very mixed feelings of this one. I like how there were different sections, such as one section of ancient horror, where as the next section was about zombies/crazy people. Other than that, the props were too extended. We had a few situations where Ariel and I got hit in the face/head by props.(This was actually in three of the four houses) There was a bear that swung his arm into Ariel’s head, even though she was all the way over. This could have ended badly, but gladly it didn’t. Also, this event used fog machines too much, making it hot and hard to breath. We ended up having 4 people get dizzy after we got out, out of 10. That is pretty sad! I gave it a B- due to the different sections.

I really loved this event and want to go back, but I hope they change the problems we faced. If they don’t fix anything, then this will never be fully worth the 70+ dollars we spent per person. I had a lot of fun with the family and wouldn’t mind doing something like this again. I would highly recommend going, just be cautious to not get killed by the props. Thanks for reading!
