Merry Christmas Eve! Every year on Christmas Eve I love sharing a special story with y’all. It’s become one of my favorite Addicts traditions! The annual reading of a classic tale. You know….
Twas the Night Before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even an….
Oh you thought we were going to tell THAT version? Nope you thought wrong!
You see every year right around Christmas Eve we like to tell the TSTO version of the Tale….Twas the Night before Grumplemas! Nothing like a nice little story to keep Christmas Eve nice and light while we wait for Santa! 🙂

So, right off the bat, let’s recognize that “Friday Fillers” are usually posted on Fridays (hence the name). But tomorrow is Christmas…and I really hope that you have better things to do on Christmas, than play your game, and read a post from me.

But characters that are eternal???
Understanding this event is as difficult as trying to make sense of “Star Wars” coming out in an order that requires the first to be the fourth (or was it the fifth) until there was the Mandalorian, which tests us all to suspend space, time, and just go “Ahhh…look at that cute baby Yoda!”
And I feel that EA/Gracie are trying to pull off the same kind of slight of hand, as we now have “Baby Jesus” (or Josh as they tried to name him) buying real estate, while the older version of himself watches on, and the Dad/Grandpa/God does nothing about it…well…it makes the Mandalorian make sense. But, look at that cute baby Jesus!
But, there is a difference here. Yoda is a being with a finite existence (unless you buy into his ability to come back as a Ghost-oda in some of the other episodes). Jesus is different… Continue reading →
