I will be at home watching the tv while her indoors prepares the dinner having a few drinks around lunchtime. I will take the mrs to church mass in the morning (not my cup of tea) then go and collect her later and just stay home all day.

I will do the same what I did in the past 28 years. The whole family will meet in my parents' house on the 24th, we will have dinner and afterwards a few drinks while chatting and exchanging Christmas presents. On the next days I will recover from too much alcohol on the 24th.

Well a bit of a change from all of your schedules, since I'm Russian Orthodox, and our church goes by the old calendar, Russian Christmas is on the 7th of January. During that time I will hopefully be in New York City having fun and enjoying my vacation.

Set off at the crack of dawn to go to work, have a merry little shift (not) and then mess around until my other half also returns from work at 7pmish - have dinner and settle down with a few beers and some Cava - probably put some music on and open a few pressies !

We will be in Cape Town from December 17 to 27, Christmas Day lunch will be at Maestro's Restaurant on Woodbridge Island, they put on a huge buffet spread overlooking the ocean and Table Mountain. This will be our 4th year making this trip so it is becoming a tradition!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Lying in bed with the blankets pulled over my head trying to pretend that I am somewhere warm . That will last about 10 minutes until my partner , who is like a big kid at Xmas , drags me out of bed and forces me to face the infinite horrors of the day
Moderation in all things ... including moderation ;-)
