‘Tis the Season!

‘Tis’ the Holiday Season!

Now that revamping Cosma is done, ’tis also time to get back to doing posts!

One problem, though. I’m a bit rusty, and I didn’t quite know where to start …

I decided to look back at what I did in the past for inspiration. That evolved into a whole “Ghosts of Holiday Posts Past” type adventure.

For example, I spent a few years obsessed with making Toy Worlds, so it’s no surprise that some of my holiday posts were about toys (e.g. A Time for Toys, Toy Quest).

When I went to update my Toys-R-Back post from 2019, I discovered that Toys-R-Us is back, again! A new store just opened in the American Dream Mall in New Jersey. Here’s a YouTube clip from Inside Edition and a story from CNN Businesss about the opening.

I also checked-up on my posts related to my favorite Toy Construction Set (Lego Rocks, Best Cat Toy Ever). That’s how I came across this article that said that having a room full of LEGOs may not be such a bad thing after all 😉

While I was perusing for LEGO things, I also tripped over this cute 360° “LEGO World” tour — warning, it doesn’t end well for the LEGO World.

I ended my journey down memory lane by reviewing the Santa’s Escapades post that I did back in 2019, and it had a link to an article that explains how to keep up with Santa’s whereabouts.

I just had to check. Yep, good news, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and Google are stillkeeping track of Santa, and he seems to be doing just fine!

After I reviewed all of the 360° videos on that post, I went to YouTube to see if I could find any more like them. Success, I found another one!

However, I must say that my favorite 360° Santa adventure is still this one!

So, there you have it. Thankfully, both Santa and I are alive, well, and doing our things. I hope you enjoyed this brief adventure through a few silly holiday things to prove it 🙂

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
