Merry Schaefmas

The calendar has turned to December. The season of advent is almost complete. The anticipation. The build-up to Christmas. Believers and shoppers love this month. Atheists and political correctness junkies also crave this month to tear down the whole vibe of Christmas and introduce so much nonsense.

But what have I said before about one thing that unifies, strengthens relationships, starts and builds friendships, acts as a salve for tough times and as catalyst for a good time? Easy. Schaefer.

So hopefully you have procured yourself a 30 box, retrieved your ornaments...

...and then decorated your Christmas tree.

The Schaefer Hall of Fame and Ring of Honor members are always on their toes - regardless of the season. And the month of December has been no exception.

SROH'er Bruton celebrated the first weekend of December and the second weekend of Advent as we all should: Pancakes and a Schaefer!

Bruton also tipped me the Washington Huskies football team has a player named 'Schaefer'. In Googling a bit, I found out he is offensive lineman Drew Schaefer.

Oh the weather outside is frightful.
But the fire is so delightful. And since we've no place to go. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Bruton also claimed three-bean chili warms a soul on a cold December day when washed down with jalapenos and a Schaefer.

In December, SHOFer Rookie and wife/SROHer Erin said "Screw this cold weather, we're going to Key West baby!" So they did.

The incomparable songwriter, Guy Clark, penned Hemingway's Whiskey...

...but as for Rookie, he prefers Schaefer with his Hemingway.

So many double-entendres exist in this next photo that I don't even know where to begin.

Rookie would reveal which way he rolled clothing-wise at the Garden of Eden. But when it came to his brew of choice, there was only one option: Schaefer.

After a stint in the Keys, Rookie returned to the realities of winter in North Carolina. Yet he made sure to celebrate with a Schaef at the Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta Falcons game.

On behalf of fellow Schaefer Hall of Famers Philly, Rookie, Padook, Uncle D, and Cuba; the Schaefer Ring of Honor; and co-blogger banktruck, we wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and happy Schaefering.
