Here it is, my holiday gift to you: I've been digging around some Twitter accounts for some gems to share.
I saw a whole bunch of them from a lot of different people. Some were a little too personal, some slightly vague and some were flat out not appropriate for a family newspaper. Those I did not include.
Of course, I'd better send a big thanks to the accounts I 'borrowed' from. I tried hard not to embarrass anybody.
I thought the ones below were playful and funny, while others tugged on the heartstrings. For the most part, I thought they reflected a good balance of the feelings we all experience over the holidays.
Never miss a local story.
Tyler Gagnon (Dust Devils baseball): First day of the nba and I’m already sick of watching these players every 5 seconds begging for a foul. Or floppin on the court.
