Christmas Together We'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.

Light at the end of the tunnel

Ok so the cruise I was suppose to go on in November is officially cancelled. I'm very disappointed but i'll get over it. So I've decided to do something else instead. I've decieded to go to NYC and see the Rockettes Christmas Show. I've always said I was going to go but every year I get caught up in someone else's mess. So this year I'm going even if I have to go by myself. I can't wait!

so sad about the cruise
Glad to hear you were able to look at the bright side and are going on an equally wonderful, but colder trip! You will really enjoy it (so I hear, have never actually gone myself!)

And, if The Rockettes aren't enough to compensate for a cruise, Philly isn't that far of a drive from Santa's Workshop in North Pole, NY...
