Our Almost XXMas Show featuring Ugly Christmas Sweaters from #Partner

This Christmas is obviously….Well….It’s different. 

Instead of huge gatherings and celebrations, people are (hopefully) altering their plans to help do their part to stop the spread of this nasty virus that’s turned life upside-down for the past year. 

We’re kind of the Black Sheep, so to speak, so we don’t really get invited to family gatherings. Not traditional ones, anyway. We have, over the past few years, adopted a HUGE “chosen family”, and one of our family reunions happens in Cleveland, right before Christmas. We’re part of a community called EST (Everyone Stands Together), and we attend Machine Gun Kelly’s XXMas concert as if we were going to church for Midnight Mass. For many, my family included, that IS our Christmas. This IS where we get to see our “family” and celebrate the season. People fly in for the weekend from all over, and it’s kind of a huge deal. 

This year, understandably, it’s not happening. I have to admit, this made us all very sad. This year, the fancy Holiday depression has hit hard, and we’ve been trying to find ways to still experience some kind of magic, even though we’re missing our loved ones so much. 

Xander, my soon to be 10 year old, decided he wanted to surprise me and the rest of his EST family, and put on his own little Corona XXMas show in his “studio”. 

The cool part? The decorations in his little music area are actually made from the set of Machine Gun Kelly’s first XXMas show. We were fortunate enough to purchase the whole stage set, and we’re thrilled to have it. It’s actually sentimental to me, as I was in the front row of that magical show. 

Anyway, Xander has a guitar, a uke, keyboards, drums, and a zither in his studio. He also has disco lights, a cool karaoke set up, and a life-sized cut-out of Machine Gun Kelly himself. 

He decided Kells needed a mask, because of course he does….He also decided to dress him up in this awesome Get Lit Ugly Christmas Sweater from 

Delightfully simple, yet tacky to its core, this vintage-looking holiday sweater is sure to please all who see it. Some may call it an “ugly Christmas sweater”, but this gravitates more to the “festive” side of your Christmas sweater collection. Bright colors, high-quality construction, and classic sweater patterns make this sweater the perfect addition to your holiday wardrobe!

The best part? Not only does it light up, it’s got SIX different lighting modes, including what appears to be music/sound reactive lights. This was absolutely perfect for the kid’s little show, and Machine Gun Kelly looks dashing in his Holiday get up. 

The only downside to this sweater? Well, obviously, since it has lights and wires, laundering isn’t encouraged. I’m sure you could probably spot clean, but I’d just be careful when wearing it to avoid having to clean it. After all, this is a novelty item that won’t likely be part of your day to day wardrobe. 

Overall, though, we thought this sweater was an absolute hoot, and it made the perfect visual backdrop for Xander’s little concert. 

Check out his performance of one of his favorite songs, Machine Gun Kelly’s “End of the Road” below. He KILLED it! 

We don’t own the music, and yes, he skips any and all bad words. 

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope this year isn’t too weird and that you’re finding ways to be festive during these unprecedented times.

      GOD and idols

      Jeremiah 10:1-10

      Hear the Word which the Lord Speaks to you, o house of Israel.

      Thus Says the Lord: “do not learn the way of the gentiles; do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the gentiles are dismayed at them.

      FOR THE CUSTOMS OF THE PEOPLES ARE VAIN-FUTILE-FRUITLESS-WORTHLESS. For one cuts a tree from the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.


      They are upright, like a palm tree, and they cannot speak; they must be carried, because they cannot go by themselves. do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, nor can they do any good.”

      Inasmuch as there is none like You, o Lord YOU ARE GREAT, and YOUR NAME IS GREAT IN MIGHT, who would not fear You, o King of the nations? for this is Your Rightful Due. For among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is NONE LIKE YOU.

      People who worship idols are altogether dull-hearted and foolish; a wooden idol is a worthless doctrine.

      Silver is beaten into plates; it is brought from tarshish, and gold from uphaz, the work of the craftsman and of the hands of the metalsmith; blue and purple are their clothing; they are

      • Katherine

        all the work of skillful men.

        But the LORD IS THE TRUE GOD; HE IS the Living God and the EVERLASTING KING.

        AT HIS WRATH the earth will tremble, and the nations will not be able to endure HIS INDIGNATION.


        Someone once related to me a vision they had…while awake. The “nativity scene” was enveloped in the most ferocious fire. The scene of this vision occurred at night. The actual vision took place early morning as it was related to me.

        The meaning of this vision is DO NOT worship-pay homage to this pagan and anti-christ annual holiday.

        Worship in TRUTH and in SPIRIT. Through Christ and His Spirit.

        We should be bringing about comfort, kindness and generosity 24/07 all year long.

        That IS Christ’s Way; 24/07!

        To the pastors, teachers, preachers, father this or that, imams , rabbis, etc., etc.,

        HE MUST INCREASE, but i must decrease. John 3:30

        That hour has been in place since Christ Walked, Died and Arose. But, the ones who take the place of Christ ad infinitum for ever and ever; ( “they are lost without me”) are corrupt. They are only supposed to guide to Christ; then LET CHRIST Take Over.

        TEACH THAT! CHRIST WILL TAKE OVER! Look for and prepare for His Incoming Kingdom which will be here on earth!

        The Revelation of Christ+3:12 The Revelation of Christ+ 21:2

        Christ, THE Lord Is The Only Good Shepard

        John 10:11 I AM The GOOD SHEPHERD: The GOOD SHEPHERD Giveth His Life for the sheep.

        John 10:14 I AM The GOOD

        • Katherine

          SHEPHERD, and Know My sheep, and am known of mine.

          John 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and NOT The SHEPHERD, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

          John 10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

          Most of you make $$$ off of Christ’s Holy Back and “teach” “doctrine” that appeals to the flesh. NOT GOOD!

          REPENT! while you still have time; while Christ Has Left The Door Open for you. Eventually, THE DOOR Will be Closed!

          December 25—Christmas Day—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1870. In fact, for the first three centuries of Christianity’s existence, Jesus Christ’s birth wasn’t celebrated at all. The first official mention of December 25 as a holiday honoring Jesus’ birthday appears in an early Roman calendar from 336 A.D.

          When church officials settled on December 25 at the end of the third century, they likely wanted the date to coincide with existing pagan festivals honoring Saturn (the Roman god of agriculture) and Mithra (the Persian god of light). That way, it became easier to convince Rome’s pagan subjects to accept Christianity as the empire’s official religion. Christ was Born in September. Research that for yourselves.

          Ezekiel 34:2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus Saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds;

          • Katherine

            Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

            READ all of Ezekiel 34 and the other Scripture that warns of the corrupt “teachers” in churches.

            John 5:39-40 “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you Eternal Life. But the Scriptures Point to Me! Yet you refuse to come to Me to receive This Life.

            This is more of the same from the Devil who so wants to WRENCH you away from Christ and kill you physically and spiritually. These are just a few of the countless moldy, old religions straight from Satan’s demonic mind.

            We should be bringing about comfort, kindness and generosity 24/07 all year long.

            Malachi 3:5 And I Will Come Near to you to for Judgment; and I Will Be a Swift Witness Against the sorcerers, and Against the adulterers, and Against false swearers, and Against those that oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that deprive the strangers among you of justice, for these people do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty God of hosts=Heaven’s armies.
