We may have put up decorations earlier than normal at the Stage homestead but I do have strict rules against Christmas music and movies until after Thanksgiving.  Now that it's officially Christmas season I can put on Twisted Sister's Heavy Metal Christmas or jam some Bob Rivers with impunity.

We've also dove head first into the Christmas movies.  Starting with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, The Christmas Chronicles, The Christmas Chronicles Vol 2 (which isn't NEARLY as good and actually pretty horribly written), Home Alone, A Christmas Story...jeez, I guess we watched a lot of movies over the Thanksgiving weekend.

There are a few more that are must-watch movies this time of year including It's a Wonderful Live (which I watch alone because no one else in my family likes it) and Polar Express.

Turns out the Putnam Museum won’t be able to host their Polar Express Pajama parties because 2020 sucks.  So this year, they're helping you create your own party with At-Home Party Kits....available for purchase now!

They've got a bunch of different combinations of Polar Express sets to buy and the deluxe kit has it all:

  • 4 custom laser cut snowflake ornaments
  • Craft activities
  • 4 souvenir golden tickets
  • 2 train whistles
  • Hot Cocoa Fixins for 4
  • 4 custom cookies from Cookies by Design
  • 4 General Admission passes to use at a later date
  • Putnam Polar Express Pajama Party Blanket
  • Metal Putnam Polar PJ ornament
  • Polar Express Puzzle

They're offering pick up for the Polar Express Pajama Party Kits December 18-20th at the Putnam Museum.
