    Hi Jacaranda,

    I will be spending Xmas day alone ( my relatives are dead) enjoying a vegetarian meal and some quiet practice. I have a female friend coming to visit on Boxing Day and I'll be chatting with other friends on the phone.

    I have 2 weeks off work for the first time in years, so I will be travelling down to London to visit family. Christmas dinner will be traditional but with a twist as my Thai brother in law will be there and I'm sure he'll be doing some cooking.
    This will be my first Christmas for a long while that will be totally alcohol free, so it'll be interesting to see how I'll cope with the social gatherings.
    Whatever you are all doing I hope you have a peaceful Christmas.

    Spending the morning with my Kids and family, maybe have my brother dress up like Santa and surprise the kids, then later on in the day head to work. Hopefully have an easy work night.

    Thanks,
    Seekn.

    Yes I'll be absolutely fine, Jacaranda - but thanks for asking.

    I'll be on winter break from college. Spending Christmas day with my parents and my sister and probably my Great Aunt as well. We'll have a tree and presents and a nice dinner. Sometimes we have something traditional sometimes something different. Not sure what we'll have this year but I'm the lone vegetarian in the household. We'll also get together with my extended family on my dad's side sometime in January for a second Christmas. We do a 'Secret Santa' thing every year.

    I like December. It is one of my favourite months not because Christmas but because people tries to be nice, even when it only lasts for a while.

    About Christmas... not a big deal. Just a warmth gathering with my family in law.

    Normal stuff really. Our two sons coming home . Same as for you Fletcher.... I think this is my first alcohol free Christmas probably in about 43 years or something. Looking forward to clarity and the feeling of experiencing the true aspect of stuff no matter how difficult or easy it happens to be..... but great, walking the dog, scratching around in the garden, time with loved ones and my Buddhist practice of chanting which my wife my mum and one of my sons will do to
