2017’s Christmas Recap

Hey folks, it’s that time of year again. Christmas is fast approaching and, if you’re anything like me, you’re panicking over what to get your friends and family. So, this thursday, we’re going to go over everything I’ve had in the last year, seeing what would and wouldn’t make great gifts.

It’s time for my yearly recap.

But, this year, we’re not going to go by month. We’re going to go by theme.
