We here at Nerdy but Flirty hope everyone who celebrates Christmas has a wonderful day, filled with nerdy presents. For those who don’t celebrate Christmas, you can celebrate Isaac Newton’s birthday! He’s the guy who figured out why apples fall from trees. This website suggests decorating a tree with fruit loosely, so that apples will occasionally fall down. In addition, there’s a “Grav-Mass” carol to sing too!
