Another year filled with promise, adventure, and hopefully success. Standing at the starting line of 2018, you believe anything is possible. After the ball dropped and we all squealed with delight and toasted the New Year, the future looked so bright. When you woke up Monday morning, grateful to have the day off to recover, 2018 was too bright on the eyes and for some of you smarting from that hangover. After closing the blinds, and showering off 2017’s regrets, it’s time to get realistic about what we can expect to achieve this year.

The holidays are a whirl wind of frenzy and activity. You can still taste Thanksgiving and just as the indigestion settles down, Christmas has arrived. Going to the company party, buying gifts, making plans with relatives, and the big day came before you knew it. Just when you think you can relax a little, you realize you have New Year’s a week later. Who was in charge of planning when they laid these out on the calendar all those centuries ago?

After this month’s installment of bizarre holiday traditions, we found some more oddities that will make you feel normal and glad to live in America where singing about a fat guy flying around in a sleigh seem pretty reasonable. In the lovely country of Norway, which has ancestral heritage for many Minnesotans, it seems that on Christmas Eve the good citizens all go out of their way to hide the brooms. Is it because they deserve a break from cleaning for the holiday?

Even if the food and drink is good, you find yourself dreading yet another holiday party. Not even egg nog spiked with the good stuff is going to make another party bearable. You have discovered how scrooge and the Grinch came into existence. Surely they were meant to suffer one holiday gathering after the next until their spirit was broken and henceforth boycotted all such festivities with vehement distain.

The holiday season has arrived and everyone is looking to get their loved ones a unique and interesting gift. Last year’s golf club is in the garage collecting dust, those cozy slippers are lost in the back of the closet, and the kids stopped playing that video game a month after they got it.

The good folks at Escape Frenzy would love to encourage you to start a family holiday tradition that might actually turn out to be pretty normal relatively speaking.

You are going to have a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, visit with family, watch some football and relax with a four day weekend. So why would you want to spoil it by subjecting yourself to the Black Friday nightmare.

Most people love Thanksgiving. We get the day off, sleep in a little, and spend most of the day eating. Thanksgiving is the quintessential American dinner.

Kids grow up so fast. Most parents will only utter this phrase when they are looking backward in retrospect. Living through diaper changes, 3AM feedings, and endless crying for no discernable reason other than someone must hate you; made a couple years seems like an eternity while you were going through it.

I was pulled off on the shoulder, muttering under my breath, watching the lights spin in the rearview mirror; when suddenly the cop came running up to my window threw my driver’s license at me and told me to slow it down.
