    June 25 - Only Six Months Until Christmas!

    June 25 - Only Six Months Until Christmas!

    Between the pandemic and everything else that is going on it's hard to believe that it's only six months until Christmas and at the same time, Christmas could be tomorrow! Time is mysterious that way these days!In this episode we start off by talking about all the great Christmas (and other holiday) TV shows and movies that are available on Hulu that you might not have noticed. In fact, they have an entire section dedicated to them that you can check out here: https://www.hulu.com/genre/holiday-cd0399d6-66b4-42b5-b9e4-1cde90cbc36e (See, I told you it was long and scary.)Heather takes us shopping at One Thirty First, a black-owned business that would be the perfect place for holiday shopping. Their designs are timely, powerful and unique. Honestly, they probably say it best: "OTF was designed to highlight the ideas, personalities and in some cases, the plight of those in urban communities. Through puns and pop culture references, we use our designs to help our customers express their realities."Finally, we wrap up the episode with a feel-good story about a woman you got a mom for Christmas (with a little bit of help from an online DNA test!)

    Special Episode: What You Can Do To Help #BlackLivesMatter

    May 11 - Betty White is Doing Fantastic!

    May 11 - Betty White is Doing Fantastic!

    Heather and Chrysanthemum Cliff are finally back in the same place! Things are just a tiny bit in flux, which means they had to record in Cliff's dining room, but everything came together!Heather and Cliff voted and came to the conclusion that any time you mention Betty White's name it should be in the form "Betty Which is doing fantastic and...". With that in mind, Betty White is doing fantastic and will be starring in a Christmas movie this holiday season on Lifetime! There aren't any details yet, but honestly, we don't care if it's just Betty White doing a Zoom meeting at this point.In central Texas, Jacqueline Smith is getting in the holiday spirit early! She put up a delightfully pink Christmas tree on her sidewalk and stocked it with hand-made face masks to help keep her community safe!Finally, if you are looking to spread a little bit of Christmas cheer early, Heather reminds up that helping stock a tiny pantry in your neighborhood is a great way to help out folks that need just a little bit extra right now. Follow Us!http://weresoxmas.com/https://www.facebook.com/weresoxmashttps://twitter.com/weresoxmashttps://www.instagram.com/weresoxmas/

    April 2020: Are We Still Going to Be Socially Distancing at Christmas?

    April 2020: Are We Still Going to Be Socially Distancing at Christmas?

    Heather and Chrysanthemum Cliff decided to try something a little different this month and recorded their podcast via Zoom since they are still socially distanced. That means a few things:1) If you head to facebook.com/weresoxmas or weresoxmas.com you can actually watch this podcast!2) There might be a few things we talk about that work better on the video since you won't be able to see them.This month we talked about what to do if we are still having to socially distance during the holidays? Christmas might be a little bit different if you can't just head over to Grandma's house like usual, but luckily Heather made found a few ways to bring everyone closer together on her latest trip to...Lowes?Cliff is a bit worried that we might not have any new Hallmark movies to watch this holiday if they aren't able to start filming them pretty quickly. Again, Heather saves Christmas by coming up with a holiday movie that can be filmed almost entirely via Zoom!Finally, we'd like to give a big We're So Xmas shout out to Christmas By Krebs in New Mexico. These folks usually are making Christmas decorations this time of year, but in the face of a pandemic managed to shift their production lines to make 10,000 face shields for medical professionals every day!
