The Great Christmas Comment Freeze of 2016

December 22nd, 2016

Hi Everyone!

We wanted to let you know that we (the moderators) will be taking our Christmas break, and spending time with our families, starting December 23rd. We’ll be back in the office on January 3rd. During that time, we will not moderate comments. You can still submit comments, but they won’t show up until 2017.

Thanks for loving Odyssey and commenting on the Whit’s End Blog! We pray you have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. See you in 2017!


Merry Christmas from Adventures in Odyssey!

  • Anonymous on January 3rd, 2017 - 5:35pm


    I just found out that I’m going to be doing an ensemble for the IACS with a couple of my friends… I also had a hard choice… Either a piano solo with on of my friends… Or a harp solo…. I can only do two in the music category….


  • Anonymous on January 3rd, 2017 - 5:35pm

  • emmanuelle on January 3rd, 2017 - 5:57pm


    Hello. I was wondering what you would say as to sharing clothes with your siblings. I am 15 and my sister is 14. In the beginning, I said we could share our clothes, but I didn’t really want to. Now, it’s bothering me how she treats the clothes (mine) by throwing them around everywhere instead of putting them away. I have asked her again and again to put them away. Have we outgrown sharing our clothes? Can I tell her I don’t want to share my clothes with her without feeling guilty of not sharing

  • Serena on January 3rd, 2017 - 7:15pm


    PRKR Kid: What do you mean warning? Where????

  • THe prkr kid on January 4th, 2017 - 9:42am


    @serena: an ad on aio episode bad hair day

  • Knittingfun on January 4th, 2017 - 12:15pm


    I know what you mean about sharing clothes, though nobody in my family is close in age, were all about 2-3-4 years apart so we can’t. I would have the same problem that you are in now, if I shared clothes with any of my siblings… (maybe..if I had one close in age) And I don’t know if you can tell her you can’t share you clothes with her or not… I don’t know you, or her… Sorry I can’t give you much advice! Except Pray!
