Merry Christmas, everybody! I hope you all are as lucky as Chuck and get many presents. Big, expensive presents. After all, that’s what Christmas is all about!

Just kidding. The older I get, the less I care about getting any presents at all. By now all I really want is to spend time with my loved ones and see people be happy. When I was a kid, I always heard grown ups express opinions like that, and it boggled my mind how somebody could say such a thing and keep a straight face.

I don’t know how many of you already know this, because I didn’t make a public announcement on this website or in our Facebook group, but 2013 was a very, very special year for my wife and me. Because, a few weeks back, our first child was born! Today, the three of us will drive out to my in-laws for the first time and will celebrate a very special Christmas this year.

I hope all of you out there will also be able to enjoy these holidays and have a great time with you family, friends, or whoever you spend them with!
