I’ll be attempting to maintain my regular five night-a-week schedule as best I can, but here’s a few things to note this holiday season:

  • No stream the evening of Saturday, December 17th due to family obligations
  • This year’s Christmas Carol streams:
    • Stave I: Sunday, December 18th at 8:30pm US Central Time
    • Stave II: Monday, December 19th at 8:30pm US Central Time
    • Stave III: Tuesday, December 20th at 8:30pm US Central Time (yes, I know I normally take Tuesday off, but the holidays are weird)
    • Stave IV & V: Thursday, December 22nd at 8:30pm US Central Time
  • No streams due to Christmas obligations on December 23rd, 24th, or 25th.
  • No streams due to New Years obligations the evening of December 30th, 31st, or the morning of the 1st.
