    I'm going to sit here on the computer and chat on the BB while my family spends time in the living room doing what ever they do on Christmas. Just kidding....

    I plan on going to church Wed., but that depends on when family starts arriving. We have dinner together on Christmas eve. On Christmas we'll just spend the day together...probably watching that Christmas show with the red rider BB gun....a Christmas Story?...anyway...not much.

    Complain to my family (those that still come around) about Santa Claus and the commercialization of what is claimed to be Americas celebration of the birth of Christ. Could there be any doubts? lol.

    Christmas Eve we have a service at 4 pm - our first and probably last Christmas Eve service at this location since we can't get building permits for it. :(

    My dad will come over on Christmas Day for an early dinner (eating at 1pm) and I think my daughter's boyfriend will be here too.

    On the 26th, we will be going to my mother-in-laws to celebrate with her. She lives an hour and a half away - too far to run on Christmas Day.

    Of to carols and prayers before Midnight Mass.....to bed, then up and out to the farm where there will be hordes of over excited littlies and have a dinner that won't be beat and then slouch in chairs with like a lizard on a rock and talk and nibble and doze.....

    Same thing as last year: dance around the Asherah, deck the halls, exploit the mistletoe, engage in glutinous acts, pander to over-commercialization... the boring usual. :thumbsup:

    Did you mean "engage in gluttonous acts" instead of glutinous?

    I'll be working on Christmas day. In the evening I will be having a hotpot meal with seven or eight Chinese teachers. It will be their Christmas treat.

    Thankfully I have the day off. Christmas in fact starts my 6 day break - I'm so looking forward to it.

    Christmas day will start with family breakfast followed by worship and reading of the birth story. Then we will do presents. After our baby girl's nap we will head over to my wife's parents an hour away and spend the rest of the day with them. Early the next morning we are driving to WV to visit my mom and have a day late Christmas with her.
