I'm on Christmas vacation, so no school. Also, sorry to disappoint you, but I stopped believing in Santa ever since I was about 3 years old...

Also, now it's 12:52 AM, December 25th, 2016. Now it's officially Christmas.

Christmas doesn't rely on EST ticking past midnight*.

Some people are over halfway through Christmas Day...

Merry Christmas one and all.

*while there's a trend for Midnight services, especially in Anglo-Germanic traditions, the whole point of Christmas Eve/All Hallow's Eve is that the evening of the 'day before' (if you accept Julius' concept of midnight-midnight) is traditionally part of the feast (see also Jewish Sabbath). Large parts of Europe celebrate Christmas after nightfall on the 24th.

Merry Christmas to all! I promise to post "from the future" again as I'll get to 2017 at least six hours before most of you.
But, it's only 11:07 PM, December 24th, 2016...

It was 5:07 a.m., December 25th, 2016 in my time zone (and thus already Christmas) when you posted :-P.

Proud of having clinched all North Dakota Interstates... on Street View.

There's no such thing as a "multi-state route", it's just as many state routes as states implied that happen to have the same number.

All times 6 hours behind my real time unless otherwise noted.

I had the same thought.  In my family we always celebrated starting Chrismas Eve with dinner and my moms friend has a giant Christmas party before Midnight Mass.  High church Episcopalian so very English tradition

If someone makes a "Merry Christmas" sign in button copy, I'll consider it to be a very merry one indeed!

Never saw that one before.  It was hilarious!

Hope you don't encounter any Bad Santas on your road trips...

Just a ghost town named after the character.  Seriously though that is one creepy little place and it has a lot more junk laying around than those two pictures.  I guess the property has been for sale in the mid 1990s, I'm surprised it has fallen victim to arson yet.
