In light of recent circumstances, I have decided that I will have to put off writing the lost holiday thread altogether. I would rather focus my free time on contributing to the forums and to the database, and serious discussion of animation in general, in more valuable ways.
So, in effect, last year's Christmas thread will be the last GAC-IAD holiday thread. It's been a long run of over 10 years, but I think it's time to end the tradition. Certainly we have better, more valuable ways to celebrate our love of animation, do we not?
Thanks to all who read (and contributed to) the threads,
