Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together.

How can you "fake it" or "power through it" or "put on a brave face" to make the holidays as normal as possible, when other people depend on it? [more inside]

Serbian Christmas Music Recommendations

We are having some visiting Serbian friends over for a late (by our standards) Christmas meal in a few days. They will literally be on the other side of the world in New Zealand at this time. I'd like to play some Serbian Christmas music that they would enjoy, music that says "Christmas" to them, especially so far from home. I understand that the actual Serbian Christmas is not until January 7th, but I'd like to play music that lets them know we have gone to some trouble to help them enjoy Christmas. Any recommendations, especially those accessible via iTunes or YouTube, would be most welcome.

roku vs. boxee

Final Decision: Roku or Boxee ?? I am between either the Boxee Box or Roku XDS.

Christmas on a zero dollar budget?

Mission Impossible? Christmas gifts for wife with a zero dollar budget. Due to my current unemployment, Mrs COD and myself have agreed that we will not spend a single dime on each other for Christmas. We did spend a little so that the kids have a few things to unwrap. However, having nothing under the tree just seems so depressing. Anybody have any creative ideas?
