I'm feeling a little festive so figured I'd post a thread about Christmas day.

The old folks will be hosting Christmas at theirs for the first time in years. I'm looking forward to it and I'll be heading over there early to help set up the place. Going to see the ol' gurl Biscuit, family dog. She's getting old, I haven't seen her in so long so I'll be looking forward to that. Got her a present too! All wrapped! It's just a chew toy!

What about the rest of ATS?

Enjoy your time with family. and Merry Christmas.

I am one of those old folks who lives alone and can't handle the work anymore. Actually glad I get to stay home and have a day like every other day. Trying to get the phone calls in so no one feels an obligation to call. Christmas can get hard for families with children. Still, I loved it back in the day.

Hug your dog for me.

I sure will liveandlearn, and a merry Christmas to you too! I'll see to send a picture of her to ya if I get to it!

She's getting to that age where she's limping a bit... suspect she may have arthritis... 12 years old! I always get her a present, nobody else does. I mean why not? She's part of the family.

Yes Christmas can get hard for many. I count my blessings everyday and I hope for the best for all. It's sad, many struggle out there. My prayers for all.

Sometimes it's nice to have some smaller Christmas's, makes you appreciate the big ones.

Also sometimes the more intimate gatherings has great conversations. I've learned more about the family when they all aren't there. When everyone is together sometimes it's just a bunch of small talk.

Staring at the monitor, or the tv to the side. sober, being 60 days since.

I remember when Christmas actually felt different. Festive, alive, you could feel it in the air. These days I coulnd't tell you if Christmas has come or gone, apart from the random parties up the street, which have become tamer over the years.

61 days as of Christmas 2017. Best present to myself I reckon.

You should tell your folks to get the old girl some turmeric dog treats. It helps with inflammation on old dogs with old joints. My boy Sam is gonna be thirteen in February and they help him out quite a lot with his old bones.

And Merry Christmas. I plan on drinking lots of eggnog and making a fire outside.

Family and friends.

With the final passing of my parents it's taken a bit for the Christmas spirit to return...it just wasn't quite the same without 'em.

Tonight, while wrapping a few pressies I found myself back where I'd been a few years back. Singin', if you can call what I do singing..., along with various Christmas carols, some of which seemed to mean a little more than before.

Hope every one has a merry holiday of your choice, or just a good Monday.
