I don't know when it started, but "Holidays" is a more inclusive term for Christmas, New Year's, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and whatever other midwinter holidays people celebrate.

I'm real jealous Norc. I'm out in stupid California and we had a warm sunny day for Christmas. Sad

On a lighter note, I did get a kick-ass 5" diameter reflective telescope, so I will be enjoying the nights much more now.
On a darker note, the hand-made bow and arrows that I spent days on for my nephew was nearly wasted when my brother and his wife bought him a bow and arrow set from the store.  Mad

Merry Christmas!

Well, I'm sorry you guys don't enjoy it.

Is Christmas that uninteresting in Italy Figg? I'm guessing it's quite religion centric.

Hat sounds nice. Very Happy Though be warned your badass ratio might approach dangerous levels.

If you want him to slip in discreetly, just make sure you have plenty of juice. Preferably without bits in. Otherwise can be quite abrasive I have heard.

Shocked *cough* Anyway...

We've had a lovely Christmas, despite gloomy weather, plus degrees, storm and rain most of the time. We were 10 people for Christmas on the 24th. Us four, my mom and dad and Finrods mom, dad, sister and brother. Finrod's grandparents joined us later for coffee and desserts. Christmas day we spent with my parent on the annual Christmas day family dinner (Potetball folkens. Med pinnekjøt. Nod)
Yesterday the inlaws made baked salmon. Smile

Weather on the 26th:

Sounds nice Amarië.  Very Happy 

Strangely we all seem to be having the same kind of weather. I just walked in from the pouring rain.

I just shared some pictures over on the Tales of Home thread of the last remnants of our snow. Here's another from my walk of Christmas eve just to bolster the threads Christmas spirit.

Not the weather to be outside in here either, but just staying in is one of the better parts of Christmas I guess.

I'm not a big fan of lutefisk, but the company and accompaniments normally makes up for it. Wink

Concert? Very Happy Playing or listening?

Well, make sure to enjoy it either way. Nod
