    According to internet lore and legend, the man has a giant sack and only comes once per year.

    Coincidence?

    I think not.

    Today the man helped me fulfill a longstanding goal of mine -- namely, to have at least one tin of every release of McClelland Christmas Cheer.

    I managed to grab a 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999 from the jolly man's Christmas Cheer sale today to complete the entire run.

    Congratulations on the goal I started the same goal months ago, but have a long way to go to have a complete set of each year!

    I would say yes, if I were in your shoes, as my OCD/neurotic compulsions would drive me to completing that most worthy achievement or go mad trying.

    Yeah, I completed all the years from 2000 on some time ago but had none from the 1990s. I was pretty excited to complete the run in one fell swoop.

    The inaugral 1992 tin is the real exciting one. Based on what I have read, there may have been only 130 tins produced for that year, so I had long ago thought that I was unlikely to ever get my hands on one.

    My thinking is that I will pope the first tin, 1992, in 2017. That will ensure that I can smoke a tin of 25 year old Christmas Cheer each year from then on. Except for 2018, since Christmas Cheer was not produced in 1993.

    That's funny Peck I could have sworn I read a post for a few years go of yours that said you didn't have any prior to 2000. I'm glad you completed the set.

    That sounds like an amazing plan. Hopefully by 2017 I'll be at least half way through getting each tin

    Picked up a few old tins myself.

    Wow peck, you're easily satisfied. Until there's a Lamborghini Gallardo in my driveway and peace in the Middle East, I shall deny the existence of Santa.

    Pipestud, please bring my wife a wooden leg. No, she has both of hers, but she asked for a stocking stuffer this year.

    I realize now that this could be interpreted the wrong way.

    Yeh, I was thinking that maybe you knew him a little better than the rest of us.

    He has Elephantitis?

    I've never met him in person so I had no idea.

    In his pictures Pipestud looks way to thin to pass as Santa Clause, Elf maybe but certainly not Santa.

    "Is Pipestud Santa Clause?"

    As revealed in the clip below there is no Sanity Clause!

    Thanks for the business, Peck, and all others who have picked up some Christmas Cheer tins from my site.

    For those of you wondering about the size of my sack (which, frankly, concerns me), I do take a wheelbarrow with me wherever I go. It relieves the pressure.

    And for the record, while I am looking more and more like Santa as the years go by, I am not the Jolly Old Elf, as evidenced by the fact that I can't even get myself a new car and despite my strongest efforts, have had no luck bringing peace to the middle east, or, even into my own home for that matter.

    Thanks again for all the business!

    That's awesome Peck! I figure the least you could do is help Pipestud carry around his large sack for awhile!!

    Well, it was good of you, Steve, to switch to a walker—the kind with a shelf to bear the weight of the sack— for the WCPS; a wheel barrow would have been ungainly on the floor of the show, and you might have knocked some folks over.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all you nut cases!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
