There Really is a lot of Good That Happens Around Christmas

I love "feel-good" news.  Too often, the news we do hear is a real downer.  You know, the news anchor on TV will open with "Good Evening," and proceed to tell us why it's not.  (You're supposed to laugh here :))

17 Houses Decked Out for Christmas

No matter what the holiday, we always love getting extra festive. It's not like we need an excuse to wear awful Christmas sweaters or take part in a harmless snowman prank, but doing that stuff during the season makes us look a little less crazy. The season also provides the perfect excuse to go way overboard in the decorating department.

It’s Secret Santa Week

It's Secret Santa week here at Townsquare Media.  Many of our staff at all 5 radio stations here in Grand Rapids, are participating.

You know what Secret Santa is, don't you?  You draw names from those who choose to be a Secret Santa, and then, for a week, you do something special each day for that person.  Of course they don't know who their Secret Santa is.  It's something fun to do around the office for the holidays.

I'm a Secret Santa so since the first day is decoration day, I came into the station over the weekend when I hoped no one was here, to decorate for the person I got.  I walked into my office, and BAM!  Was I surprised.

Gift Cards For Christmas? How Much did you Spend?

It becomes harder and harder to buy Christmas presents for family and loved ones.  Tastes change, they get older, and a Fruit Cake just won't cut it.

My wife and I actually resort to gift cards sometimes for their favorite store or shopping destination.  They're not exciting, but that way they get to shop for what they want and I don't have to supply exchange slips with every wrong gift I buy.

As for cost, well, if you're giving a $25, $50, $100 card, you pay full price, right?

Wrong!
