I have a feeling that it's customary to smoke a rather primo stick for the occassion. That being said, I have an Undercrown that's been resting for a while, but I want to save it for when I leave Afghanistan. Leaning towards one of my two favorites...MOW Ruination or CAO Fathom 5

Probably a CoLa right :r

I'm not sure what I'll smoke (or if I'll even be able to). I may light up an Anejo Shark I picked up.

Nah, mine are resting. I think I'll have a nice alternative though.

A Viaje 50 / 50 Red, an Illusione of some sort, or a Tatuaje Black. Hell, maybe I'll smoke all three and chase it with a Casa Magna Dominus.

Yes many people have tried them, they are a great priced stick for the quality. One of the few that are worth the money IMO. Great stick, you will love it!

I think I still have a '10 Holiday Blend. Might torch that one. Might dig out an Opus from last year, too.

As of now the plan on Christmas Day is to smoke a turkey. Not sure if that's gonna happen since it'll require hauling my grill over to the in-laws'. But it's either that or clean the turkey frier, and I'm not really keen on doing that either.

Getting closer and closer to the big day and in addition to my Viaje Holiday Blend (thanks to Dom) I will most certainly be burning my LP9 with a couple years on it. May even spark the Opus X I got from Shilala that also has had a little bit of time to rest...

I know one thing it is going to be a great weekend of smoking great sticks!
