This is going to be the best Christmas we’ve had in a long time. At least, it’s going to be the most spirited one we’ve had for some years now, We haven’t been able to have a Christmas tree since the triplets were born. I can’t believe that next month, that will have been six years ago! Before that, I always put our tree up on Thanksgiving morning so that it was ready for our friends and family when it was time to get our Thanksgiving feast on! I’ve hosted Thanksgiving for many years, but the Christmas tree tradition has been missing. I didn’t make the Thanksgiving deadline this year, but it’s up now and the kids could not be happier!
We’re almost through our marathon month of TV bingeing. The holidays really bring out the joyful spirit in everyone. The kids are just start their long Winter Break today, which is the last long break they’ll have from school for quite some time. It’s the best opportunity for family bonding, just like during the Thanksgiving break. I’m going to make every popcorn/candy combo under the sun! There’s only one problem with that — sticky little hands all over the remote! Enter the XFINITY® X1 Voice Remote. I had a lot of fun with it at the XFINITY® X1 in-store event this month with Pedro.
Whether you have adorable sticky-fingered children, a husband who thinks pressing the remote buttons are too much work, or are a tech-loving mom like me, this is the MUST-HAVE in Entertainment, this holiday season. Check this out!
Our children are growing up in such a technology-driven time. I learned to type on a manual click-click-click typewriter, with ribbon ink. Then, I upgraded to an electrical typewriter, which was so cool at the time. It doesn’t seem that long ago, but where technology is concerned, it’s been forever! My little girl instinctively used to try to talk into every remote. Why wouldn’t she? I mean, you can talk to your phone. It made sense that she’d assume you could do the same with a TV remote. Well, you know what they say about great minds. XFINITY® was on it!
They’re definitely forward-thinking. Another impressive feature of the XFINITY® X1 is the share app. I know we’ve had video calls and conferences around for a little while now, but this is a whole new level! Wherever you are, the Share app lets you live stream to other devices, even your big screen, so friends and family can be there with you! I’d love to live stream Thanksgiving next year with my out-0f-state family! That could be a new tradition, thanks to the ease and innovation of the XFINITY®. Switching to the XFINITY® X1 Entertainment Operating System® is easy!
If you’re looking for the perfect gift, the XFINITY® X1 Entertainment Operating System® is one the entire family will enjoy! What’s your favorite Holiday movie or show? Share in the comments.
