Early this morning, a man with twinkling eyes, merry dimples, a cherry-colored nose, and a beard as white as snow slinked down local area chimneys, surrounded people’s Christmas trees with a satchel full of gifts, and ate almost the entire country out of its milk and cookies. This person is being referred to as “Jolly Old Saint Nick.” If you have any information on this audacious, magical, and kind man, please reach out to the Montgomery County Police as he’s considered wanted.
But right before you do that, we’d love to know what gifts this Kris Kringle character left under your tree – especially the Caps-related items!
It’s Christmas Eve and our Twitter mentions (or menchies as Peter calls them) are starting to get into the holiday spirit. Such as reader Madeline who sent us this photo of her Christmas tree. Her family made Braden Holtby their tree topper.
“Some people use stars, some people use angels – we use both,” she wrote in an email to RMNB.
We issued a challenge, oh faithful users of the Russian Machine, to create Caps-themed Christmas cards. The only rule: use an inferior graphics program or blingee.com to make it.
What we avoided telling you — just like my parents who took 14 years to come clean to me about the whole Santa thing (he IS real) — was that we didn’t have to follow the same rules. Above, is our holiday card by RMNB’s house illustrator, Rachel Cohen.
Meanwhile, you guys rocked this assignment harder than a Dmitry Orlov hip check. Though, to be honest, some of these submissions might land you on Santa’s naughty list once I post this. I apologize beforehand. Cruise on past the jump to check out the gallery and see what I mean.
