What Will You Be Doing On Xmas Day?

Thu Nov 24, 2005 3:39 am

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. Big grin

Get up at a leisurely time, then go for a massive lunch and have lots to drink. After that I intend on coming home, and getting pretty sloshed. I'll end up on here no doubt, just like last year!

But as soon as it's over I'll be packing for Miami, San Juan and St. Maarten! Big grin

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 !

That's me !

December 24th, go to parents house with family, have dinner, drink be merry, exchange gifts, take photos, have fun.

December 25th AM, wake up with kids, do the Santa thing, have fun, see kids faces light up, take many, many photos.

December 25 PM, have in-laws over, eat, drink, TRY to be marry (remember it's the in-laws), exchange gifts, see kids be really happy, take plenty of photos.

December 26 go to my wife's "blood" father's place, eat, drink, exchange gifts, see kids happy faces and try to be merry.

The following next week will be for rest until New Years.

I'll be about 1 month into my India trip.

On the 25th December, I'll probably be in Hampi, Bijapur or Hyderabad.

As for the New Year, I suspect I'll be in either Mumbai or Ahmedabad.

Same old for me.

24th - Work, then in the evening whilst the family is at mass I sit and watch all the movies which the BBC and ITV stick on, see them every year...up till the early hours chatting on MSN

25th - Watch some more of those BBC & ITV movies. Family comes over, big Xmas dinner, prezzies in the evening, then whilst everyone falls asleep, more of those movies...

26th - Sales, buy some cheap stuff, come home, try it out, and then more of those movies

As you can see - exciting stuff

Typical Marsh-Giddings Christmas for us - salmon and a bottle of Moet for breakfast while opening our pressies, then Mrs M-G puts the dinner on, we take the dog for a walk in the countryside and come back for lunch.

Have dinner, then fall onto the settee to watch the Christmas film, followed by cheese and crackers as we watch Only Fools and Horses in the evening!  biggrin 

Boxing day we usually have pork pie for breakfast, and go to the in-laws for lunch and the afternoon. New Years Day we usually go to my parents!

I'm in exile in a foreign country, so it'll be my first Christmas outside of Australia. The plan is to stay home with the housemates and drink champagne. Already have a bottle of Moet for myself, but will need at least one more before Christmas to make sure I don't run out.

I think I actually have Christmas off this year. Day'll probably go something like this: try to sleep in past normal 0445 wake up, head over to either mom or dad's house, eat breakfast while waiting for brother to wake up, celebrate Christmas at first house, then to next house, then probably out to Rockwall to celebrate with Grandma, uncle, aunt, and cousin with her husband. Spend the next few days hanging out with my brother and partying at my apartment, as to finish off the vacation days I'll be off until the 31st  Smile
