Seasons greetings

Postby solat » Sun Dec 14, 2014 4:04 am

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonderland.

How is everyone?
I rediscovered my password, got a bit nostalgic, so thought I'd post a Xmas greeting.
Hope everyone has been good and life has been treating you all well.

Been totally crap weather down this part of the globe, but Summer feels as if it's finally around the corner.

Anyway, hope you all have a great break and try not to indulge too much (if you do, make sure it's worth it).

Big hugs.

SIR! Welcome home! Good to see you!

I'm having one of those 'not-feeling-it' Christmases this year... my hubby and I decided we are abandoning any attempt to "do" a Christmas thing for us, as it only adds to the stress. Now we're thinking an overnight away from home in January to celebrate the end of the season. Every year from here on out.

Of course, we'll still decorate. That's just because it helps get through the cooler gray months (as opposed to the warmer ones in the Pacific Northwest that mark summer) with less despression. Come on, gardening season...

Nice to hear from you.

I had some friends reach the same state. Tried going to a place that avoids all the Xmas push. They gave up and are spending it in Queenstown.

I had my tree up 6 weeks ago. Only because there was nothing on TV and I needed to occupy myself.

We're having a quiet time on Xmas day. BBQ outside with a few friends. Looking forward to it though.

Oooh, sounds nice.

I hate to say it, but I guess I'm just one of those people who doesn't dig family get-togethers. I don't think my brother and I will get together for Christmas after Mom is gone.

Is it a generational thing?
A gay-in-a-conservative-family thing?
Just a thing?

I think it's just a thing; there is much less familial ties it seems. I wrote my only sister off years ago and the rest of my family is not close, though we all live in the same city. But I've made some wonderful new friends whom I consider family. They are the ones I spend the holidays with now.
