Interestingly enough, this was the first White Christmas I ever experienced. Well, not necessarily that I’ve never seen a Christmas with snow, but this was the first one where the first snow of the season was on Christmas Eve. A great reward for surviving December 21st, and definitely a great sign of the coming year. I’m sure 2012 as a whole was difficult and rewarding in its own way for everyone. But I’m sure 2013 will be less challenging and everything we’ve all been working for will pay off. Once this country can reset itself upon the right course, we will all benefit greatly.
Unfortunately yesterday’s Festivus was so grand I had no time to make a blog post for it, and while it is now Christmas Eve, I cannot let Festivus go unsung! For those who are not familiar with the holiday, Festivus was invented by a Seinfeld writer’s father, and then writer then proceeded to write the holiday into a Seinfeld episode. This catapulted it to international prominence, and now many people celebrate Festivus on December 23rd.
I would like to take today to be thankful that we are all still here, and the greatest extinction event we’d all been looking forward to is now over. I remember hearing about the 2012 phenomenon for at least four years, and even being frightened of it at one point. It had been the longest-running date to look forward to in my life, and now it’s gone. I feel it is truly a symbol of moving forward, leaving behind the past, and embracing a glorious future. A future where we can all enjoy life to the fullest, realize our full potentials, and be at peace. Of course, airsoft is definitely a major part of that, as there is no better sport for one to push themselves to the limit on many personal factors, but it goes further. Never give up in anything you do, and believe in your abilities and yourself!
As was promised, here is my post on some unique airsoft gifts. It is always awesome to get someone a gift they are not expecting, and when it is in a category they are passionate about, the gift carries extra weight. That’s why I would love to share interesting airsoft gifts that you can give to friends and family, making this holiday season literally the best they have ever experienced or will ever experience. A high goal, but easily achievable if you listen to this post.
I have decided to postpone the Unique Airsoft Gifts post for tomorrow, in order to honor the awesomeness of today’s date. It is 12/12/12, the last triplet date for 88 years. 12 is also an interesting number, in that it is sublime, superfactorial, semi-perfect (but who can be totally perfect?), and a bunch of other crazy attributes. This is truly a special day, especially because the number 1212 is special to me. In my sophomore year of college I virtually lived with a group of friends in the room 1212, and it was amazing. Definitely what a college experience should be like. Unfortunately I can’t get into the specifics, but I’m sure imaginations can be used to form assumptions. I hope your 12/12(/12!) day is glorious, and we shall truly finish this year strong.
It’s hard to imagine that time can move so quickly, yet here we are again at the 2012 holiday season. Christmas is about to be here and it will certainly be a great time, provided that there is no interference from the December 21st event. Speaking of that, and I hate to go off on tangents, but it is also remarkable that that event has also arrived. I’ve been hearing about the 2012 prophecy since I was pretty young, and it always seemed like it was so far away, but now it’s but weeks. I honestly don’t think anything bad is going to happen, especially since the apocalypse theory has been dismissed by experts, but I do believe that great social change is coming. And what better way to enjoy the greatest revolution in mankind’s history than by purchasing some high quality, extremely powerful airsoft guns to live life to the fullest!
I personally have a great love for gas airsoft pistols, because I’ve personally used one to overcome multiple opponents with automatic electric rifles. Of course, that was a long time ago and quite an amateur game, so it’s not as incredibly impressive as it sounds, but it did demonstrate that gas pistols really do have a lot of power. And when a good one comes along at a great price, it is usually wise to take advantage of it. That is the case with the Elite Force 1911 Tac; a plated, upgraded 1911 that is realistic in every sense of the word and extremely powerful.
If you haven’t heard yet, East Coast Airsoft is hosting a food drive between now and December 21st, 2012. So if the world happens to end on that day, you can secure your place in heaven by donating to us before then! All food donations will support the Maryland Food Bank and the greater community at large. After all, it is our community which ultimately enables us to play airsoft, by directly and indirectly providing places to play and ultimately creating the airsoft players that populate the fields. If you would like to help others during the holiday season and give back for all that we have been given, then this food drive is perhaps one of the best things that you can do!
I’m sure most of you airsoft enthusiasts also enjoy the Call of Duty war series. I personally love those games, but since I do not own a console I do not get to play them often. What’s most unfortunate is that I enjoy the campaign mode the best, but when you’re playing at a friend’s house, it is kind of hard to get them to allow you to play single-player, ha. This is most unfortunate because Call of Duty Black Ops 2 looks like it has an utterly insane campaign mode, and they are really pushing the boundaries of what their first-person style can achieve. I hope many of our customers were able to pick this up yesterday, as the release date for the game was November 13th. We’ll see what the ultimate reviews are when they come in, and I’m sure it’s going to be reviewed very well by all the major game magazines.
Sometimes it can be hard to get in a lot of airsoft games into your life when there are so many other things going on. School, work, other social activities, rest… where does airsoft fit? One noble truth is that you can always find time for important things, and there is no doubt that airsoft can be designated as very important. Airsoft is special, because it can completely escape you from your daily life and put you into a completely different and exciting situation. In today’s digital world, it is hard to find sources of true excitement, but airsoft can get you there every time. After all, how can you not be in an excited state when there are half a dozen or more people shooting at you?
