Hello everyone. For those who don't know me, I'm Steve Rogers. And as strange as it feels to say this, we're coming up on my third Christmas in Vallo. It's my personal favorite time of year, and I mean that as a season and not any particular holiday. Even where I'm from, there's so many different reasons to celebrate in December, much less adding in more dimensions, worlds, galaxies, and universes. The best I can hope for is that we all find at least one reason to spread joy and love to those we care for and maybe, just maybe, our community as a whole.
I'd welcome anyone who is throwing general parties this year to share the details here, so they're in one place for anyone to find and plan around. I half suspect Sam will be offering up his place again either for Christmas or New Year's, but I can't in good conscience volunteer him. A little public pressure is okay, though.
And finally, I'll be spending afternoons from today until the 23rd as Santa in Starcourt Mall. Bring your kids, pets, or even yourselves if you want a photo and ask for gifts this year. I'll do my best to relay those requests to the right people to make it happen, if I can.
Happy holidays, my friends.
