Re: Interference, tell us about your christmas

where are you celebrating? hometown (west Michigan), and probably Chicago (in-laws) or maybe Wisconsin (Phil's grandma). 4+ hour road trips one way, no matter which we choose.

who are you celebrating with?
My dad's side = Dec. 23, my parents and sibs = Christmas Eve, my mom's side = Christmas morning, Phil's family = whenever Phil has off work and we can make some road trips if the weather permits.

what are you doing? on either side, we just have buffet style dinners and then the little cousins exchange presents and the adults play a game with white elephant gifts.

Tomorrow night is the HelpDesk Christmas party (just four of us and our spouses) and Dec. 19 is the dept. Christmas party, which I'm on the planning committee for. We don't have a big budget and everyone likes food events, so we're going to a local Asian food restaurant for a long lunch and will have some other games and voluntary gift exchanges throughout the day.

New job = paid vacation Dec. 22 - Jan 1 so I'll be sleeping a lot, watching movies (Love Actually is my "Christmas movie"), and catching up on some web design side jobs.

Well...I finish work at 7:30am christmas morning (don't feel sorry for me, i get paid triple time to work christmas!) So I'll be sleeping until about 1pm. Then we'll head to brother-in-laws for late lunch, and will probably spend the evening there too. There will no doubt be WAY too much beer consumed, and about 11pm my hubby will have to be dragged staggering out the front door!
I will be the sensible one, not drinking as i work again the next day.

I've always wondered what it would be like to experience Christmas without darkness by 4:30pm and several feet of snow on the ground. I can't wait to move to a warmer climate, but I don't think Christmas will ever feel like Christmas.

Re: Interference, tell us about your christmas

where are you celebrating? At my apartment near Chicago

who are you celebrating with? With my parents....that's probably about it since I don't have any relatives I know that are close to me

what are you doing? Christmas eve we are going to 10:30pm mass (Which ends at midnight...and usually we see some idiots come to our local church to see if mass actually starts at midnight ). Then Christmas day we will probably open gifts which was generously donated to us by the same local church that we went for mass (If someone bought the stuff we "asked" the church for....since we can't really afford much of anything*.), then probably have Christmas dinner while watching TV and looking at the gifts we have

who are you kissing? No one....no boyfriend, no nothing sad to say

(* Please don't ask how I can afford this....this is a cheapie compared to some the other stuff that we need but don't have)

It's definitely very different, that's for sure. I spend every Christmas in a warmer climate. It often doesn't feel much like Christmas because it's so warm and sunny outside, and also because we don't do gifts (the vacation is our gift). The first year we did this was very weird, but now I'm used to it.

where are you celebrating? In Massachusetts at my parents

who are you celebrating with? I'll be celebrating Christmas with my boyfriend and my parents, hopefully his mom and sis will join us later but that is doubtful because they are going to his stepdad's hometown in Ireland the next day for the week. Lucky.

what are you doing? Opening presents, receiving a bunch of calls from relatives saying merry christmas wish we could have been there, blah blah blah. Having either ham or turkey with all the good stuff for dinner. Probably taking a nap afterwards.

who are you kissing? My boyfriend.

The usual xmas, me and mum and boyfriend in the morning open presents from each other and call family interstate. We then make some food (this year we got the prawn cocktail salad) and then head off to the beach to meet up with family and friends. We have lunch and open presents on the beach, get drunk, play footy and cricket, go for a swim and make cocktails. That night I meet up with my best friends for xmas dinner and present giving (and loooooooots of drinking!)

Boxing Day, we ALWAYS go to the movies and shopping!

Australian Christmasses sound like South African Christmasses... Maybe I need to move there.

Only in Aus can you go to the beach on Christmas
My cousins send me Christmas pics and they're all tan n stuff.

Is it weird at all to celebrate Christmas when its really summer? I wouldnt think so since that is probably what you are accustomed too, but I cant imagine it.
