    Hi,
    This question I asked my self a couple of times. I saw most users were online on 12-26 at 6.26 pm. Why??? I'd rather think the least people were online that hour and day. (eating turkey with the family). Someone knows?

    Considering that a good portion of this forum is devoted to toys, maybe folks were showing off their new treasures? ^^

    We had tons of people online due to links in from high traffic sites because of the Movie news we were reporting.

    There was no new news that day though I remember, because I started a thread in the fuzzy asking why there had been so many people online that day. But yeah probably did have to do with movie news anyway.

    Well after Christmas and all holidays, people probably weren't on TFW because they were doing stuff, so all of us came on right after Christmas because they weren't on for so long.

    Because here at TFW, we're not just a community, we're a tight knit, loving, and highly disfunctional family, committed to bringing you the best transformers news service this side of the Mississippi. And at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what day it is, b/c you can be assured, we care. (not really, but still!)

    I should imagine its also something to do with there not being anything else to do over Crimbo because everywhere is shut, the TV is cack, the newsrags don't publish, most websites don't update and spending time with relatives is often more excruciating then most people are willing to admit.

    IIRC, the latest movie trailer had just come out at that time.

    I wonder what it'll take for that record to be beaten? :p

    Everyone was online that day talking about how weird Holland is for having two Christmases. Was Jesus born twice?

    QF MASSIVE T!!!!

    Really, TV around any holiday is just horrible. Nothing I want to watch is on. And going to the stores is a big no-no even if they are open the day after xmas; they look like they've been ransacked by a mob of angry peasantry (same is true of any day after black Friday and pretty much any day until January).

    All this and more is what is fueling my whole, "Im so sick of Christmas" tirades.

    Dammit, Draven, you beat me to the punch. I kinda figured that because we had people posting pics of their Christmas hauls like crazy.

    But maybe this December 26th we might have more users online than last year.

    LOL.
    We have 1st christmasday and 2nd christmasday. Whatever, it's 2 days off for me.
    How many "holiday" christmasdays do you guys have in America? Now that you mention, I've heard once that people in America have only 10 free days off from work in a year. Is that right?? cause I got more than 30 in a year.
