# 281 - Twas The Night Before Christmas '18


59:50 minutes (54.79 MB)

Tonight on the Show, Santa Claus makes his annual flight around the World. And it's Christmas Eve. The second time that The DJBC Happy Hour has aired on Christmas Eve (2012 being the other year), and the last time until 2029 (unless the show moves to another night and time).

The Weekend Warrior returns to preview The Big Explore, which is in commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Columbus Foundation, December 29. SIX Local Museums will have FREE Admission, and COTA will have FREE bus service ALL Day on that Saturday (I deliberately left out the part about the 75 cent cones of Jeni's Ice Cream on purpose).

And Mrs. Claus predicts the Peach (Saturday at NOON on ESPN) and Rose (New Year's Day at 5PM on ESPN) Bowls, with a Special Guest, and a couple of Elves.

Next week ONLY, the show will air LIVE at 8PM EST. I'll try to cut in at 7:59, but I'm going to perfect it. I swear.

Morning Meditation

Rest is an important part of growth, but it is tremendous undervalued in this busy world. Rest is a catalyst to inspiration and creating joy and happiness in your life. Today, please give your self permission to rest, to grow, to be inspired, and to trust.
