We had a very small christmas this year with our men being deployed. Got socks, pj pants, a blanket, some lotions, money, and 2 dozen roses from my love. Not my best christmas ever, but this to shall pass.

I am not very religous person so I dont really look at the whole jesus' birth part of the holiday but what I do love about christmas, and what it means to me, is that its a time for sharing and cherishing everything you have. Its a time that makes you really appreciate your family and friends and to also spend another wonderful holiday together creating new memories. I feel like a lot of people have forgotten that its not about the gift giving and what you did or didnt get for christmas. Its about creating new traditions and enjoying the magic this holiday season brings.

That doesnt sound crazy at all! I have to get 3 more people but I am going to do it after christmas too since I am not going to see them for christmas, so it works out. Your marine is coming home seen, even though may seems so far away, time will fly and before you know it he will be in your arms again emoticon

I like to try and dress up a little. I usually wear a nice top, pair of jeans, and some nice boots! I wanted to buy me a new top but if I dont get to I will just dig through my closet and find something lol. I do have a nice simple dress for new years though!!

I actually haven't done any Christmas shopping. I just got paid today so I'll get a few small things. Most of Andrew's gifts will be bought after Christmas since he wont be home til May. I know it sounds crazy but financially it will make more sense...

It is very hard especially knowing where he is and what he is going through. I knew what I was getting into when I started a relationship with a Marine... I love him with all my heart and wouldnt change a thing but I hate that he is in Afghanistan and not home.

Aww that sucks to not have a significant other home for the holidays. emoticon

I don't usually dress up to go to my mom's but this year, if I don't wake up hungover (YAMI), I'll try to dress up a bit. I bought two new shirts, one for Christmas and one for New Years!

I did that too Zo! lol I had a bunch of red ball ornaments that I loved and wanted to somehow display but they wouldnt go with the colors I have on my tree, so I but them in a basket and I put them ontop of a chest in my livingroom that I use as a sort of end table and I love the way it looks! I was like Martha Stewart watch out! lol

I have to get stuff to make cookies to bake for the guy that works at the deli by my job, and gonna bake some cookies for the garage guys since they are always giving phoenix a treat when we pass by.

I also bought the last minute gifts a needed to get this past sunday and now I just have to finish wrapping!

OH and I need to get one more gift for secret santa with a couple of friends but I am going to get that after christmas since we arent meeting up any time soon!

I wish I could spend christmas with my mom and sister. Since they live in florida, I havent been able to fly out there for the holidays. But in a way my wish is coming true because on chrsitmas day, at some point during the day, we are going to see eachother on skype and open up our presents we gave to eachother lol So that should be fun and I am definitely looking forward to it!

This is a bible verse but it always remins me of Christmas.

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, God with us.

Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God.

I dont usually bake but this year I am trying to get into it! I tried a new cookie recipe, Chai Tea Eggnog cookies and they came out pretty good! So I think I am going to make those every year for christmas emoticon

I also want to make a chocolate and peppermint bark and I have another cookie book at home I want to look through to see if I see any recipe I want to try from there!

Whats one of the best gifts you've ever gotten!

I get very excited whenever I get perfumes or body lotions/mists so a few years ago I got a perfume from my parents and a set from my bro and Yami which I really liked. I'm such a girl, I know.

Pernil, which is roast pork and so good!!! lol Pasteles, TASO had sort of explained what it is on one of her posts on this thread, so take a scroll down. And last but not least, coquito. At work we call it the special milk lol! Its a nice creamy coconut drink, a spanish version of egg nog like what TASO said. We call it the special milk because there is alcohol in there, and USUALLY we are not supposed to drink that kind of stuff at work, but we get a bottle, from whoever can bring, and we have a little bit as sort of a holiday toasting. Its so good! Those three dishes, or two dishes and a drink actually, I look forward to all year long. Pernil we make during other occasions but the pasteles and coquito is really only done around this time of year!

Going on vacation to the Cayman Islands.... A week in a house with a private beach and pool and away from the cold Nebraska winter! It's a great time with my family and my brother-in-laws family. We all have so much fun together!

What do you like the most about the holidays?

I love the family get togethers and the food. Mom always makes dinners during the holidays and she and my guy also make coquito, which is this spanish egg nog type of drink and pasteles which are these little concoctions of meat and potato encased in a cooked plantain shell. Sounds weird but they're delicious. Around this time of year it becomes very family oriented for my family and we love having people over for drinks and food, and just laughing and hanging out. This festive feeling lasts from Thanksgiving straight through to New Years which is why it's part of my fave time of year. We're currently right smack in the middle of it which is why I'm all over the place at the moment, lol.

What I like most is how magical it feels. I love passing by homes that are decorated with beautiful lights, I love the music, warming up on a chilly not with a hot cup of coco and watching a holiday movie. I just am always happiest around this time of year!

lmao Zo I love that!

I celebrate christmas and I have done a little bit of shopping. I am making a couple of things, getting in touch with my crafty side lol, so the past 2 - 3 months I have been doing that, but next week my guy and I are going to head to the mall so we can get if not all, MOST of the christmas shopping done!

i celebrate Christmas and we don't shop, i know that sounds weird but our family started a gag gift game about 5 years ago.. it is super fun, we are "gifty" around birthdays though---


my guy and i have a nice meal at our fav restaurant at the holidays for our gifts and then something for the apt..

my friends and i do a pot luck and the same gag gifty thing as above...

one year i got a carpenter's cd and another a stick of summer sausage-- go figure?

I celebrate Christmas and it breaks me every year, lol. I have done some of my holiday shopping, as in I did a bit of stocking stuffer shopping and got my gift in the Secret Santa so that's done. But the tough one is ahead. Shopping for my guy. Boooooo...
