Just my husband and myself at home. No children, no relatives here. We had two visits to relatives earlier in the year which were lovely, and we are expecting some to come here in February. Might even meet an American SF who is over here in January! So the day itself will be very quiet for us - and enjoyable!

My christmas will be in May when I visit my family in Germany.
With no family here I do little for the holidays.
That's okay for me. I can wait until May to celebrate.

My younger step-son, age 38, will join us for a calorie-controlled dinner. Otherwise it will just be my husband and I at home. His other son, my son, and my daughter will all be out of town with other family members. I managed to keep my weight steady through Thanksgiving and hope to do the same for Christmas dinner. Lots of time to work out!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

I hope to go hiking. I don't celebrate Xmas so it's just a day off for me!

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

I spend Christmas Eve with my aunt and cousins. We go out for Chinese food and then to church. Christmas Day will be very low key this year. Just me and my boyfriend...and lots of yummy food!!

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Being Bahais we don't actually celebrate Xmas so we just join friends and celebrate the holidays with them. Then we invite others to join us on our holidays.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

I'm now in Africa now and in a tropical rain forest. No snow here. Warm weather. My house is decorated, complete with a decorated, artificial tree. Saturday I am invited to a Christmas Carol sing time at the home of other Americans who work here. All the International workers are invited, American and Africans. There will be lots of little children as well. On Sunday there should be a Christmas service at the Nzoundou Chapel where I attend. Christmas Eve we Americans will have a progressive dinner ending with a Birthday cake for one of the Doctors who has a Dec. 24th Birthday. On Tuesday, Christmas, we Americans will eat a meal together. I'm taking two chickens and a pumpkin pie.

At least those are the activities I know about......

How about you? Do you celebrate Christmas? How?
