Hi!

Thought I'd just try and ask a seasonal kinda question. The question is "where are you spending Christmas/the holidays"? Are you at home? On holiday? At a workplace? Flying a plane? Loading luggage on a plane? Wherever is fine.

I will start. I will be at home in a village in Surrey in the UK. Could be better but could be much much worse!

Any thoughts welcome etc. if interested

Many thanks.

Hi!

Many thanks for the replies. Hope it was a nice holiday (1 and a half hours to go here in the UK!).

Many thanks.

I am at my parents house in Creve Couer, Missouri, which is a suburb of St. Louis. I usually spend a couple of weeks here this time of year.

Hi!

Many thanks. I had a look online and looks like a nice town/city. I am so ignorant that I don't even know where the state of Missouri is but I will look it up!

Many thanks!

Hi. I am rounding out my last half an hour at work. As a surprise, I am going straight home to visit mom and dad 10 hour (drive) away. I hear there is a storm coming, but I think I will be behind it. My mom was texting me all day stating how sad she was I couldn't be there for Christmas. It is true, but little does she know, I'll be there for her birthday in a few days!

My mom mailed my Christmas present to me. I did not open it, but instead put it in my suitcase to open it in front of her. She put up a little airplane on the tree to say that they are thinking of me!

Went swimming for exercise at my JCC and sported my Speedo Thong! (just kidding on the Speedo butt floss). Then off to work at the airport.

Hi!

Many thanks for the replies. It is interesting to see how different people spend Christmas day.

Regarding speedos I think you need to have the look to pull them off (which I definitely don't have). I mean if you are Michael Phelps it is fine. But maybe if you are Adam Sandler or me maybe not so good!! I don't know!

Many thanks!

Was at work Christmas day on an afternoon shift. When we arrived back at the airport, I saw a couple of kids holding up a sign saying ''Merry Christmas Daddy, Welcome home, we missed you". That brought a smile to my face and made my day knowing that I helped make it happen

Hi!

Many thanks. I don't know now but I think a few years ago a lot of airlines wouldn't fly on Christmas Day? Maybe I was imagining that or maybe things have changed or maybe it was only Ryanair!

However going to the airport to watch planes sounds like a pretty good way to spend a Christmas Day as far as I'm concerned! Too bad not too many beautiful women think like that also!

Many thanks!

I was in New York with my in-laws. They drove up last Friday, and my wife and I drove to Hamilton, NJ to catch a train to NY Penn Station to meet them at the hotel on Christmas Eve. We all came back yesterday and really enjoyed ourselves.


Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.
