    :wave2: The time is near.... just a week and a few days until Christmas.
    Any travel plans? What has everyone got for their families this year?
    This Christmas I am lucky enough to visit home again for 3 weeks and decided to get an ipad for my parents. I cannot wait for them to open it :D :D my brother is picky so i will just bring him for a shopping spree.. i haven't bothered with anyone else this year though haha

    no travel plans. I visited one of those "Cool Toys" websites, the sorts that sell titanium straws, deathstar ice cube molds, pineapple corers, and other cool junk that's pretty much worthless. Then I went to Amazon and found it cheaper there.
    So everyone's getting Sky Mall junk from me this year, basically, and some books. I actually want to keep the pineapple corer for myself...

    Going to my gf's parents for Christmas. Stopping by to see my family on the way south. I think it's going to be a really quiet holiday for me.

    Going to Ohio. Flying on my birthday again, which is always pleasant to me. My dad and I were joking that if the world ends, I'll have a good view of it. :p

    Heading home for the break. Which means I have to pack all of my shit up, since I'll be gone for a month.

    I have a LOT of shit to pack up. I should probably get on that.

    I think all I'm taking is some GameCube controllers, a couple of GameCube games, my PSP, the DS, and some games for those.

    Replace Eggnog with Whiskey, and Rum with Whiskey. And that's my Christmas!

    Seriously cant wait to play board games with the family. Balderdash and Articulate are amongst the best out there!

    This would be my first Christmas waking up alone, unless my brother is here. I'll probably go visit my father for a short while. Then, I'll spend time with at my mother's. Hopefully my sister will be there, because she borrowed $20 off of me and escaped to another state. If you're in GR Chat, you'll probably find me there.

    I'll probably be in GR chat, so you can tell me about the great Christmas cards you'll have gotten.

    My Christmas is usually pretty quiet, just spending the day preparing dinner with the family, and going to see my grandma for a bit of cake and coffee. My family celebrates Christmas, but it's not that much of a big deal anymore. Honestly, Christmas is more about friends than family for me. I make rounds on Christmas Eve delivering presents to them, and exchanging edible treats. One of my friends makes some mean Pfeffernuesse (nut-free for me!), which I look forward to every year.

    As for family presents, my dad's getting some iTunes cards, my mom's getting some kitchenware, and my brothers are getting some tasty liquids. We never spend too much money or anything. I might get some Christmas explodeythingys to help things along.

    Fun fact: I only recently discovered what Christmas Crackers are. The explodeythingys. I used to think that they were just some really common or generic foodstuffs that I missed out on. (Sometimes I feel like there's a little bit of a culture gap with me.) :p

    :D I'm sure we all know that wasn't tobacco, but just keep it a secret between us.

    A good pick, though Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz is my Christmas movie. Less puns, but also less Germans, so probably a wash.

    Like every year my grandmother has prepared a Christmas feast for the close family, so I'll be spending few days there getting fat.
