There’s No Use Crying Over Spilt Egg Nog; And Four Other Things I Learned This Christmas

Christmas 2013 will be remembered for snow, ice, power outages, and spilt egg nog?

Egg nog, technology, and the mind of a 3-year-old all led to a few discoveries for me this holiday season.

Here’s what I learned.

 

 

 

SANTA’S NAUGHTY LIST HAS AN EARLY DEADLINE

My 3-year-old was having a naughty moment the night of December 23. We reminded him that this was not a good time to be naughty since you don’t want to get put on the naughty list right before Christmas.

He informed us that he was already on the nice list and the lists are over.

Apparently Santa’s naughty/nice lists have an early deadline.

Well played, son.

SHARING STORE CARDS AND GIFT GIVING DON’T MIX

Finding sales, getting coupons, and earning points are keys to making Christmas shopping more affordable.

The problem is if you share a store card with your spouse, your spouse may get an email telling them about the gift that you just bought them.

Oops.

PACKAGE TRACKING ISN’T PERFECT

Similar to store cards, getting gifts shipped to the house is risky and can ruin surprises.

Package tracking helps you to intercept such shipments, but it’s not a perfect science.

Trust me.

THERE’S NO USE CRYING OVER SPILT EGG NOG

Love it or hate it, one thing is for sure, egg nog is thick.

We had a dinnertime spill of egg nog. A couple of seconds of panic were followed by a leisurely stroll to grab some towels once we realized the egg nog wasn’t going anywhere.

I don’t always spill drinks, but when I do, I prefer egg nog.

SOME CHRISTMAS MOVIES AREN’T QUITE AS WE REMEMBER THEM
