Christmas
 
Basically what are your plans? What are you having for Christmas dinner? When is your tree going up (if you put it up) :confused:

Food, drink, presents, adverts, songs, the weather, trees :cool:

Christmas :cool:

Goofle 11-29-2014 06:53 AM

I'm having mine on the 25th.

Cuthbert 11-29-2014 06:54 AM

That was four days ago pal.

The Batlord 11-29-2014 07:23 AM

We don't usually put up our representation of Yggrasil, the World Tree, erroneously referred to as a "Christmas tree" by Christians. But we may celebrate the tradition of pillaging and burning a church.

Seriously? Thanksgiving just ended. You're as bad as the music in every retail store.

Don't act like you give a **** about consumerism and respecting Thanksgiving. Who the **** cares if there are Christmas sales in September?

Machine 11-29-2014 11:24 AM

Mo sales, mo money. Mo money, mo problems.

As I get older, Christmas just becomes another day. I used to think it was fun to get a lot of cool gifts, but now I see it as a way for my wallet to quickly become empty.

I prefer realism over cynicism.

Do you prefer one over the other, or is it a 50/50 split?

I meant "over", not or.

You forgot to put "or" in quotations.

I don't give a sh*t about any holiday, they mean nothing to me. FTR, I was just joking with Christian.

:clap: if I could avoid all that **** without judgment I would.

All I need is liquor and music. And the fatness of my wallet.

Being broke means never having to say, "Here, this is for you."

I just find the idea of buying expensive gifts for family as a little...odd. Like "hey, i know we're family, but let me put a dollar value on it to prove it."

Perhaps I am being cynical.

DwnWthVwls 11-29-2014 01:24 PM

I don't buy anyone gifts, and cards on birthdays for like 3 people. Everyone else can ...

Broke college kid status. Woe is me. Haha.

Zhanteimi 11-29-2014 02:57 PM

This Christmas we welcome home our seventh child, our first son.

Machine 11-29-2014 03:06 PM

Christmas has always been a fairly big event for my family it's one of the few times my whole family gets together jokes around and just gets to be together (of course presents are cool too)

Pet_Sounds 11-29-2014 03:18 PM

This year's going to be the first Christmas since my parents split up.

I know this is an odd topic to mention this but my parents split up when I was a kid, and they said they were never, ever, ever getting back together, like a cruel twist on the Miley Cyrus song (although it was over a decade before that song was released, though I digress). Then a few years ago they remarried.

Things can change, even when people say they won't. People can change too, even when others think they can't, or won't.


On an unrelated note.

yeah! Let's do it! We can use the burning remains for warmth.

Chris Mars (drummer from the Replacements) posted this:

My brother Joe is a great inspiration to me. He is very kind and has a great sense of humor. He also has schizophrenia. Some of his favorite things are coffee, smokes and holiday cards. If you have a chance to send him one, you'll help brighten his season, and mine.

I thought that was a Taylor Swift song.
