I always do a theme for the Christmas Tree. I started this tradition a few years back with my Spider-Man tree. I have done a WWE tree, a Star Wars tree, and a Lord of the Rings tree. But I must say that I struggled with the concept for this year’s tree. Nothing was popping into my head. I thought about a Marvel tree, but I was not feeling that one. I did not want to do something like I did with Star Wars last year where I went out and spent a mint getting ornaments for the tree. I was flummoxed.
And then it hit me. One of my favorite things this year has been Loot Crate. I even have a little song I sing when the Loot Crate box arrives at the house. I can actually remember a couple of times when seeing the black box took a bad day and made it so much better.
So, the 2016 EYG Geek Christmas Tree is in honor of Loot Crate.
