{{{Because we don't need to reuse last year's thread, and so we can hopefully avoid discussing Trump in this one. silent }}}

Hope everyone on Forumshire has a Merry Christmas, Yule, Festivus, or whatever other midwinter holiday(s) you might celebrate! santa I've been able to keep things pretty low-key so far and my family is cool with me not wanting to do much on the actual day, but my stepmom baked fifteen dozen (180) chocolate chip cookies last weekend, as well as another probably 60 or so other kinds, which I've been enjoying.

I'm not a big fan of Christmas carols these days since my four years in retail kind of ruined them for me, but Trans-Siberian Orchestra remains acceptable. Nod And I certainly won't complain if anyone else wants to post some.



Hope everyone has a good one--and a happy new year to come as well!

Merry Christmas!

Given this thread was started in response to Trump, Eldy's attempt to staunch the flow was noble but perhaps futile.

A valiant attempt, Eldy. Kissing

Happy Erumas, everybody! We've had Christmas dinner here at home with the in-laws, we're stuffed with food and dessert and got lots of nice and fun stuff. We have leftovers to last us days. Tomorrow it's dinner with my parents. Potetball, for those interested in details.

Thanks, Am. Kissing

Stuff with extended family will be tomorrow, but this year the core of us opened Christmas presents tonight, European style, and watched Die Hard after dinner. Which is officially a Christmas movie, for the record. Nod

Possibly only briefly. Everything is very busy these days so not much chance to check in here. Christmas greetings were needed though.
