    What do you have planned for Christmas Eve/Day this year?

    I don't think I have made a thread for this yet this year but if I did, my apologies. I am on several forums and do general chit chat a lot so I can overlook stuff like this lol

    Anyways, what do you have planned this year?

    I will be doing the same thing I have done for the last several years now. Spending Christmas Eve and Day with my parents and my immediate family. Because of drama and distance, my uncles and aunt no longer go to my parent's house on either day. Since my grandparents past away, the family just fell apart.

    We usually just get pizza, play games, and eat dessert on Christmas Eve and open presents around 10PM.

    The next day everyone gathers again and we have an Italian dinner together, followed by more dessert, and usually playing something table related like poker or some other easy game everyone can take part in.

    My brother and I like to watch Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa every year on Christmas Eve as a sort of joke. Other than that, we're staying home. My daughter will open her gifts on Christmas morning, but that's about it.

    Any special dinner plans? I know most people have some kind of traditional family dinner on Christmas day even if it is just immediate family.

    Thanks!

    It's quite possible. It's often regarded as one of the worst computer generated animations in history.

    Welcome, MeowsePad.

    I imagine it'll be the same as most years, just a little different. I have three nephews and a niece. The two young ones—whose mother is my full-sister—are a nephew and the niece. My full-sister and their father separated but normally they'd spend Christmas with my family. This time they'll be with their dad, so we'll enjoy something like a Christmas 2 on New Year's Eve. I look forward to that because this Christmas will feel a little empty without them.

    I guess when I visit my family tomorrow (Christmas Eve) I'll wrap some presents and watch a Christmas film or two. Can't think of much else. Christmas Day on the other hand, that can be boring as hell for a while. My family has this stupid tradition that I know I've mentioned before. It was always such a buzzkill when I was a kid and watching films and TV I always saw children running downstairs to unwrap their presents and shit like that. So, for some closely guarded reason that I never found out, my family waits until the late afternoon to unwrap presents.

    After a while, usually my dad can't even be bothered to sit and unwrap or watch others do it. To be honest, I can't really blame him, because we have to spend around five minutes on a single present and when there's dozens of them, the whole present unwrapping process can take a few hours. Sometimes it can be nearly the evening when we begin because of stupid shit that delayed it. While I understand that some patience could add to the anticipation and it can be more polite, but Jesus Christ, I still don't get this and if I ever had kids (I won't, but hypothetically speaking) there is no way I'd ever continue this inane nonsensical tradition, or whatever my mother would call it.

    I guess the silver lining would have been watching the kids enjoying presents, if they were coming this time. My favourite part of Christmas as an adult has always been seeing the kids overjoyed. For most of us grownups, the presents usually tend to be the same thing: clothes, toiletries, or jewellery. I do appreciate every gift, but when it's usually the same type, I could understand why my dad doesn't want to sit through this for hours. Maybe I'll receive some manga. I don't read a lot of it but I appreciate more thought being put into a present.

    It's a shame I won't be able to read this with the nephew. He's crazy about Zelda and always wants to talk about that or Pokémon with me. It's a hefty art book, and although I haven't read it (I heard the art is great but it's in its shrink wrap of course) maybe I'll get a quick look on New Year's Eve. I imagine my sister won't want to waste much time during Christmas 2. She too always had to wait over seven hours with me to open our presents when we were kids. Who could criticise?

    Nevertheless, even though my family has always made Christmas a little boring, I can still endure that, because... it's Christmas and I'm no Scrooge.

    Sadly, I wont be doing anything for Christmas Eve. For some reason, my job is making it mandatory for everyone to work that day even though in the past they only needed a skeleton crew. Why the change, I have no idea but it is what it is.

    Christmas day, on the other hand, I'll be going up to my folks' place for presents and supper and then me and the family are going to tour a lightshow that's located downtown. Should be a good outing.

    I hope you're getting good overtime for that. When I was asked forced to work on Christmas Eve at my old supermarket job, at least they gave me triple overtime. Nice as that was, nobody should have to work then, or worse yet Christmas.

    Sadly no, just normal pay. Turned out well though. It was a ridiculously slow day. My supervisor told me that since I do good work, that I can go home early and still have a full days worth of pay as a little Christmas present to me so I ended up coming home and chilling for the rest of the day. Despite the crap I go through in this job, the people there are really damn good.

    All's well that ends well I guess. Since it's now officially Christmas in the UK...

    Merry Christmas



    I really look forward to my replacement organ.
