I prefer quiet introspection myself. But if loud boisterousness is your thing. . . . .

I can't believe the kids are actually playing quietly, and not even fighting over anything yet o.O The younger one has a cold though, pretty miserable way to spend Christmas. I entertained her with her new fart putty for a while (those with a juvenile sense of humor like mine will recognize this fabulous thing) Prior to that, she was putting together her new puzzle. The other has been quietly playing with her new dolls.

It's so quiet that I'm tempted to take a snooze.

Hm. It looks like there's several tries at poetry. Here's another:

Appalachian Christmas with the Family

Away up here, the air is clean and frigid water runs
the stars are bright, the woods are still, we're Appalachians!
And one more time we congregate around our Mom and Dad
and reenact a holiday like ones that we once had.

We'll eat and drink and act like fools, the kids will blush and frown,
to get upon the Internet they'll have to go to town,
unless with this old dial-up rig they find they're satisfied
but hearing them you'd think they'd all just gone to hell and died.

Alas! They've gotten way too old to cry and shake with fear
when brother Tom gets out a gun to kill Santa's reindeer.
And though there was that longlost night when I had shot a doe
and hid her in the barn intact with just an hour to go,
my stock with wife and Mom and Dad then promptly hit rock bottom
when I stuck bells upon the thing to prove I'd finally got 'em.
"Not sure which one that I just shot, but Santa's got to walk!"
"Dear Tom," my lovely lady said, "let's have another talk"
My brothers rolled upon the ground; the kids were all a sob,
and Lady Bedlam hauled me off and slapped me in the gob.

Ah! how I miss those times of yore when kids were innocent,
and "Santy Claus" delivered goods when off to sleep they went,
and down the stairs they'd run to find if it was all a dream,
or if one of the brothers got him with an M16.
One year we'd planned to rent a sleigh with presents strewn around,
and Santa impaled with a Gerber face down on the ground,
but wives and moms have different ways and rarely they agree
with what seemed like a happy time for brothers, Dad and me.

With arms a-crossed and faces stern they frowned on what we'd planned,
"But dear, it's just an Army thing, you wouldn't understand"
"And neither will the kids, my love, it's cruel what you intended,
sometimes I think that you, your Dad and brothers are demented"

But now the years have all gone by, the kids are cynical
and we no longer have the power to scare them with pure bull
and so my brothers lie in wait with terrorism hid
and soon the time will come around that we will have grandkids.

Last night we stood around the stump beneath the midnight sky
with anvil and black powder and a sledgehammer to try
to be the first to fire a shot and make the mountains ring
just past the stroke of midnight then I gave a mighty swing
much like my old granddaddy or maybe even Thor
so sure I was that I'd be first to make an anvil roar
considering that few were left to shoot one off with me
but I was beaten to it, guess that I was number three.

So here we are with family, the morning's fairly clear
although it's shirt sleeve weather which is odd this time of year
today we'll have a major meal and trundle into town
and see if there is anyone we used to hang around
we'll likely get in trouble and I'm sure I'll act the fool
but it's to be expected in the 12 days of the Yule.

Soon enough I'll be upon a westward headed plane
and working for the MIC I'll soon be once again
but for a while that's all too short, too short by far for me
I'll be here near Toccoa with my whole damned family.

Merry Christmas, you all!

As of 1 pm I have joined the ranks. I stayed at the stbxh house and watched my son open his gifts. But they went to visit family and now I am enjoying some peace and quiet.

I am perfectly ok with it.

I think xmas is about kids, I saw the kid part, so I am good.

I am not one of these people who feel obligated to fill a certain social pretense set by commercials and tv shows. I have no obligation to do anything.
Besides, I have a big split family so presents and get togethers can run into march. lolol
I am not strict about deadlines either. I can take months to get someone's gift to them. Since my mum's side Is huge, we get together on that side on the Saturdays after major holidays, so get together part two will happen this weekend.

Besides, National Geographic is running a Brain Games marathon which is a cool show. And I get to annoy the cats.

So happy xmas, happy new year, and all that. Don't let it get you down. It is all you what you make of it. Don't let artificial and overhyped ideas of what you should be doing, get you down.

So, it was your shooting I heard late last night up here on the mountain top, in the Blue Ridge Mountains where I live.

I raise a jelly jar of Christmas shine to you Dear Friend. It was too quiet anyway.

ETA: You do know what makes it Christmas shine...right? You crush up all the left over candy canes from last year, put them in a quart jar of shine, set it in the back of the cabinet for this year. Makes excellent cough syrup too.

Go, Nixie! Welcome to the thread. I like your perspective and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

To those who may have read my earlier post, please forgive me for being so insensitive and writing about sharing Christmas Eve with my guy on an "if you're alone..." thread. Duh! It was early in the wee hours and I just wasn't thinking with a clear head. I wish you all a good holiday and lots of love!

Des that Bloody Rocks! That sounds awesome! I've got a jar with fresh black cherries
& it's been sitting for ~ 5yrs. I've never made the stuff, someone gave me a jar & I
added the cherries. Maybe I'll have a little for New Years!

You always have clever ideas & recipes.
Happy Holidays!

Well, I'm on the receiving end of no presents at all today apart from what I treat myself with.

Maybe tomorrow eh?

I had a lovely day and it was a privilege to cook for the family and watch them open their presents

But I got the present of a lifetime and would like to share it with you

My present from my sister................................. After too many years in a wheelchair she stood and walked albeit aided to me with her gift.

A kiss to say thanks

I'm welling up as I type this

I've gotta go I can't see the screen

May Christmas bring you all a miracle as well
