Plans for the Christmas season include:
Christmas craft day with my nephews which will include a craft, lunch out somewhere, Christmas carols and maybe driving around looking at the lights.
A Christmas weekend away for Dh and I sometime in December. We'll stay at a nice hotel, check out a festival of lights, take a Christmas cruise on the river and just generally take time out to enjoy the season.
Helping with a charity Christmas shopping event and Christmas caroling with the church.
Plans for Christmas:
Christmas Eve: We'll attend my in-laws annual Christmas Eve open house. There will be tons of food and friends will drop in all evening to share a bit of food, a drink and some laughter. At some point in the evening we'll gather around the tree and open gifts. It's not the same since my FIL died last year but it's still a good time.
Christmas Day: Will be spent with my large, noisy family. We'll open gifts and share a huge dinner.
