    Gee, that's too bad that you can't spend time with them. Hopefully you all can chat or something throughout the day! I hope so! It's still not the same.

    I'll be sticking around home with my parents and li'l brother...sending off cards, playing video games maybe. I'm waiting for my best friend to come for a visit, so it's all good so far! And apparently I'll be acting more addicted to Farmville on Facebook.

    I'll be working all day, so I'm hoping to be alone while I'm there. I'd hate to think there were anyone who would rather haul a load than be anywhere else.

    My christmases usually have too many people and I enjoy myself a lot more the day. It's nice to be able to just relax and put on some music and draw.

    ShotgunTony, Penabled and IanE sorry you will be alone, we are actually spending Christmas alone but then our kids will be here the day after Christmas , I wish you all a Merry Christmas!! Painting actually sounds like what I'll be doing too or maybe a walk in the snow. The past three Christmas's I spend in an airport traveling to Calif. on Christmas day, people are generally nice when they see your traveling and missing Christmas.
    Holidays are tough when family is so spread out, sorry Shotgun Tony.

    I am. It will be my first ever Christmas alone. I plan on just relaxing and watching Christmas movies all day.

    We invited a man in his 20's who lost his whole family in a car crash to join us tomorrow for dinner. We met him unexpectedly today as my girlfriends crazy sister brought him home.

    Wow Rist your a fucking Christmas miracle.
    I was bummed that all of my family but my mom had left for Christmas. It is going to be the smallest Christmas ever, but at least my mom is cooking up an awesome dinner she would never be able to afford for the whole gang.

    Sadly, no. Whole bunch of human leeches are coming over to feast on food.

    Well, mine essentially amounted to alone. The girlfriend had to work, and came home cranky. So I cooked dinner, we watched scrooged, then she was in a better mood so we made stupid jokes for a while, and spent the last couple hours doing our own things, then sleep sleep time.

    I've spent most x-mas' alone, which is annoying for the holidays, people with no family are kind of politely pushed aside for a week by partners/friends.

    I do however like everyone being a tad more friendly though.
