Deadpool ChristmasThe holidays are a time for merriment and cheer… so why is a big sock one of the main decorations?  Spreading Christmas joy and goodwill towards men starts with inner-joy and goodwill towards yourself, so why not trade in those traditional decorations for something a little more geek chic?  If you have to stare at a fat guy with facial hair and a red suit, is it Santa or Mario?

So deck the halls with pokéballs, and line your tree with friends of Stan Lee!  This year the holidays belong to the nerds, and no one can stop us (unless they score a critical hit with a roll of 20).
