Oh gosh i love it when it's cold on christmas. I would have it no other way. I hate kansas weather. Sometimes it's mild on are christmas's. Last year it was 39 for a high which i was happy about. Wish it was colder. And we had just missed a white christmas about 20 miles away from us. But the year before it was like 60 degrees on christmas day. I was miserable that whole day because of the mild weather.
Oh, I completely agree. Warm Christmas's just don't work for me. I'm saying that I just don't like to go out on Christmas, and the cold doesn't help that sentiment. I still do it anyways, and there are times I love the cold.
[quote=Merry Sage;37799]Are you in the Midlands by any chance? Going to the pub for Christmas seems to be the done thing in this part of the country. I have friends elsewhere in England who say they've never heard of such a thing. Where I'm from, the taverns aren't open the 25th/26th.
i am in liverpool, it is a tradition here, everyone goes to the pub on christmas day! there are quite alot of other cities in england that do the same (but not all cities) i love it, it is like a big community reunion! i completely agree with you about christmas not being a one day thing, it is a season to be enjoyed, not rushed!
I want to say "home" because that's my nest, and always a great place for Christmas. However, the family prefers to gather at Mom and Dad's place, so that's where I go. No fun spending Christmas alone no matter now nice the digs are.
Home. We used to go visiting but when we had our daughter we decided no more. We did not like the idea of taking our kids out of the house on Christmas. Everyone comes to our house for either Christmas breakfest or Christmas dinner.
With my spouse not being a social person, we usually stay home and spend time with the next door neighbors grandkids. They get some cool presents that the older boys (grandfather, father and my husband) need to make sure that the present is safe for the little ones. Lots of good food and company, snow or not.
