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!

Genealogists live in the past lane.
The past is our definition. We may strive, with good reason, to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it, but we will escape it only by adding something better.
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!
We are going to our son & DIL's for Christmas Eve and the drive 4 hr. south to my brother's in IA. for Christmas Day. Their son will be home for the holiday a with a new baby we are anxious to meet. We will then continue our trip back to our TX. home.
Merry Christmas to you all!!
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.

Christmas Eve we eat Chinese Food. Christmas AM my mom comes over to see our son open his presents. Then at night we go over to her house for a Christmas dinner.
I am going to some friends on Christmas Eve after our church service. On Christmas Day I am going to my son's for Christmas Brunch and on Boxing Day I am going back to my son's for a family Christmas Dinner.

Then boxing day we veg and relax!!!
We Will Be Spending Christmas With Our Friends, Whom Are Family To Us. We'll Spend The Day, Enjoying Our Holiday Favorites, Hugs, And The Love That Joins Our Families Together.
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.
spend Christmas with my grown children and husband
"We are what we repeatedly do; excellence then is not a single act, but a habit." - Aristotle
Don't be content with average. Average is as close to the bottom as it is to the top.
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."
Go to in-laws, then back home and relax.
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?
