I like to have a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner with family and friends. Then open gifts and play games. After all the visitors have gone home for the night, I like to sit in an otherwise dark living room and watch the lights twinkling on the trees while listening to Christmas music.
Lovely,Christmas is about Christ,family and friends,sharing our love for one another.
all my family together sitting around the table, we eat, drink, share gifts and love together , some memories and jokes add some fun and enthusiasm.
With thoughts of why we are celebrating it and thinking of how grateful I am for all of my blessings. Most of all,I am hoping for a very peaceful and brighter New Year and an even closer relationship with God who is the provider of peace, joy, contentment and hope through even the hardest times. Prayer is a wonderful celebration tool which is a necessity at Christmas and all the year through.
I ignore it.
Honoring Jesus, the reason for the holiday. Hare Krishna
Here's how we do it: Arriving late (hoping nobody will notice or say anything), hugs are exchanged between family members, followed by squealing and going on about how much you've missed them. Then everyone get's liquored up, overeats and unbuttons the top button when nobody's looking. Gifts are exchanged that nobody can afford, receiving a bunch of stuff nobody wants or needs, then everyone gushes over how much they love it! Next, somebody ends up blowing up at someone and leaves the room in a big scene, then they make up, and everyone hugs and says they have to get together more than once a year, then everyone says goodbye. Fa la la la la la la la la
Inquiring minds want to know.... How close to reality did your Christmas expectation turn out? :))
Peacefully with family and friends.
Home hopped up on pills

I like to celebrate my holidays with the people that I am most close to that year .
I don't celebrate the "holidays", I celebrate Christmas, and The Feast of the Circumcision. I have a Christmas tree and I still call flight attendants "stewardesses, and female wait-persons "waitresses".
With my son and sister-the only family I have left.
We don't celebrate Xmas. We just stay home and chill. Make sure we have stocked up on everything so we don't have to battle all the Christmas Crazies and Tourists at the supermarket. Sit by the pool. Get some sun. Read. Plan the year ahead. We do celebrate the Solstice and New Year. But very low key. It's great to opt out while all those around you are stressing.
surround myself with people who have found someone to care for and who care for them, and let them rub in the fact that I'm all alo-- oh, you said "like." sorry, misread that
With the blind staggers. (hic)
Alone hiking which never, ever happens due overwhelming feelings of obligation!!!
