December is a busy month for many people with all of the holidays that are celebrated. Holidays are traditionally a time to spend with your loved ones, often ones that you haven't seen since the previous holiday season, but they can also be filled with a great deal of stress. I don't know about you guys, but having the extended family together is stressful for me! Trying to plan the date/time for dinner, cooking, cleaning, figuring out gifts for everyone, going into stores that are short staffed and crazy busy... it is a lot to go through to have a few hours with loved ones!
One thing that consistently brings me a sense of joy and peace especially during the crazy hectic times is Tactical Gaming. To me, TG is like a big extended family, but thankfully I do not have to cook for you guys or buy presents! (Sorry if you were expecting this from me this holiday season!) Being able to go online and find fellow gamers to just relax and kill enemies with is a great change of pace from the craziness of this season! This community allows me the ability to escape from reality for a little bit, and I am truly thankful for that! For the record, just like any family things are not always peaceful with the TG family, but that is part of the fun!
To help us get in the holiday spirit, the PRO is hosting two winter contests that are open to all TG members! We are doing a TG Parody Song Writing Contest and an Ugly Christmas Sweater/Jumper Contest. These are a fun way to interact with fellow members outside of gaming! Give them a shot and you could win some prizes! Links for these events can be found in the "Upcoming Events" section below!
I hope all of you find some time to relax and enjoy your both your family and TG family no matter what you have going on this month! Wishing you guys Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
