    I looked around, trying to see if I could find a thread similar to the idea I had for this one, and I found one called 'Season Greetings', but its different than the question I have, so I started a new thread. If one similar to this already exists, mods, I apologize and feel free to close it. :)

    So, the holidays have just begun for me. Today was my last day of school, so I'm happy about that. My family usually has Christmas dinner at my Grandma's house, but this year we're having it on Sunday, because more of my family can make it I suppose. So, I wasn't planning on doing anything on Christmas day. Then work decided to schedule me on Christmas eve, Christmas day, and boxing day. :| 8 o'clock in the morning on Christmas day, to be exact. So now I'm not looking forward to the holidays as much as I was.

    Bleh .. what is everyone else doing?

    After my BF's open house thing tonight, I am firmly gluing my ass to my computer chair and NOT LEAVING until the holidays are over. Opening gifts here at home with the family on Xmas day, then having dinner at my grandparents. Probably going to spend New Years Eve mourning (my best friend died a year ago that day :( ) or watching TV while eating fondue. Urk.

    I volunteered to work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day because I don't have any family locally and don't celebrate Christmas because I was raised Jewish. Since I will be working, that will let someone else off to be with his or her family.

    Since most of the restaurants are closed Christmas Day, I will probably have lunch at either the holiday buffet at the one local Shoney's that is open that day or at China Buffet.

    I fianally decided how I was spending them...umm, at 10PM last night :p

    Today: After babysitting some people I don't know, but I should know, I'm going to get on a bus with my girlfriend and we are off to homee for the holidays. (We both grew up in a different city...it's not too far) and then I am going out to dinner with the family, and I'm going to see if she can come too.

    23rd: I am going out with a friend whom I have not seen in forever, we are going to something called the Zoo Lighs (It's basically christmas lights at the zoo) and were going to drink a bit (after the zoo obviously) :p

    24th: I plan to actually not leave the house...will probably most likely be hungover. I am just going to hang around with my parents and little sister until later at night and I'm going to go to my girlfriends Christmas party where we are going to exchange gifts.

    25th: Obviously...open presents with my family.

    26th: Boxing day (basically Boxing day in good old Canada is you go out and shop with manaics cause everything is cheap) shopping wiht my girlfriend.

    27th: Sleeping

    28th: Hanging out with some people.

    And that's all I know so far :p I go back to where I live at the moment on the 6th :p

    that sounds kind of sad dynamo :( but that was nice to think of the other families. thats what i did for thanksgiving, all of my family was out of state and i volunteered to work all day.

    i had christmas dinner/gifts/etc. with my moms family this week b/c we live 3 hours apart. and my girlfriend and i celebrated and exchanged gifts before we left the dorms b/c from then on out we'll be with either my family or hers = no alone time.

    24th: i have to drive to my hometown and pick up my grandmother and bring her back to my dads.

    25th: good old fashioned family fun time with my dad's family and then i have to go into work.

    26th: i'm taking my grandmother back home and then driving from there to my girlfriends family to stay until friday.

    new years eve and new years day - work. bleh.

    I'm going to be with my family on the 24th, exchanging gifts and being social and watch Donald Duck. ;D We're going to spend the night there until the 25th, and then we'll go home and I'll spend the rest of the holidays relaxing and procastrinating schoolwork. I'll probably spend some time with my best friend.
    And then on New Years I'll be with my friends. :)

    Well, i guess X-mas is the holiday, which must be celabrated with the family. You can spend New Year`s eve at a wild party with friends.
    So i`ll be having a dinner with my family and at the other day i`ll be hanging around with my frs :)
