The 12 pioneers of Christmas


A very personal list by Jeff Wellstead, of The Pioneers. Tom Haak is the 10th Christmas Pioneer on this list.
These people are the hope of our future generations. They don’t think the way most people do but rather react to the toys they have to play with, the new friends they meet everyday. They act more like children approaching a playground than the majority of us sitting in traffic, frustrated up with our dystopian existence. These are the very people, in all walks of life, who create magic everyday and will help us get to another plane of reality together. I’d love to highlight some of those incredible people here with my 12 Days of Christmas Pioneers“.
