Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
I didn't give up anything for lent this year - I am doing quite the opposite! For lent I am eating all of my required fruits/veggies every day & getting the required amount of calcium! I am TERRIBLE about eating veggies, so this has been a challenge. I'm also not very good about drinking milk. When I thought about giving something up (as far as a food) I realized I have been on weight watchers since Jan. 7th & I have already pretty much given everything bad up! LOL! (ok - not quite EVERYTHING, but a lot of things! ) I am also trying for "no more piles" - I get so tired of piles starting on my kitchen table or counter every day! Papers, letters, mail, etc...I get tired of that stuff "gathering" on my counter - so no more piles for lent! We also don't eat meat on Fridays.
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace & goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.

Holiday, welcome to WW! I've been doing it for about a year and a half now, I've lost 88lbs so far. I am hoping to get another 23 off to reach my goal. It hasn't always been easy, but I'm doing it, and so can you! Keep up the good work!
Last year during Lent, it was my first Lent after being diagnosed with diabetes. I had already given up so much that I chose to do something extra....I tried learning a prayer but failed with that. I'm doing it this year and am doing so much better. I will learn it this year. No failure two years in a row. I guess I have a better attitude with it all. BTW, I'm Catholic.
A Beary Merry Christmas to all!
