16 days until Christmas so let’s make sure that we are all in the Christmas Spirit. The weather is balmy, the Christmas playlist is set, a 10Pax showed up with bells on so LET’S FRIGGIN GO!
Mosey to the lake to get warm with some SSH, Windmills, Weedpickers, Imperial Walkers, Arm Circles & Covids. Mosey back to the Jeep to get Jolly…but don’t forget that lump of coal aka coupon.
Since we have all been good boys this year and all love Christmas Jammies, DJ Papa Elf prepared a sweet 12-song Christmas playlist for just this occasion:
12 Days of Christmas – Group Squats, Burpee on every “Partridge in a Pear Tree” (yes, 12) and 5 Golden Merkins on every “Five Golden Rings” (yes, 40)

Jingle Bell Rock – Group Shoulder-tap Plank & Merkin on “Jingle” (Gitty Up Jingle Horse, if only we really wore bells…maybe next year)

Feliz Navidad – Group SSH & Burpees in 2 Teams on “Feliz Navidad” & “Merry Christmas”…yes, it was a tough bilingual festive finish. There may have been f-words. But I do want to wish you a Merry Christmas. Nice work!
This truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Despite the busy-ness, I encourage you to slow down, reflect, choose joy, give thanks, remember the real reason, and be merry!
Thanks to all for a HUGE response in donations for Santa Ruck…let’s make it a great event tomorrow at Hembree Springs Elementary at 7:30.
TNT – Mayflower recommended Starbucks Founder Howard Schultz’s podcast and a reminder to “stay in the mud” as managers & business leaders.
“God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, let nothing you dismay. Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas Day.”
“Christmas is the day that holds all time together.”
“Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.”
“Christmas gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us.”
