For years Colby Stensland didn’t like Christmas.

He didn’t decorate.

Bought the minimal number of presents.

Holiday cheer, for him, was almost non-existent.

And it’s not because he was a scrooge… but after his mom passed away a couple days before Christmas when he was a teenager, he had a sour taste in his mouth about the whole Holiday.

Surprisingly, he now runs a non-profit that’s about as Christmassy as it gets and he’s as into Christmas as a jolly old elf.
