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.

Remember when Black Friday was on Friday?
Imagine what will happen if the stores are allowed to stay open all night Christmas Eve until lunch time on Christmas Day! This year, more than 50,000 restaurants, bars, convenience stores and...
My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
What Would the Ultimate Christmas Retreat Look Like?
To continue a discussion started on the countdown thread...
I had a dream this weekend I have to tell y’all about! I can dream some strange things, as we all can. But, I dreamed I ran a Christmas themed lodge (not really a hotel, as it didn't seem to be open to the public). But it was a large open space decorated to look like a village in the nighttime (dimly lit, stars on the ceiling, Victorian type street lights scattered about, of course Christmas trees, and other decorations). The rooms to sleep in were little brick buildings scattered about that looked like cozy little cottages. Oh, and there was a pool that was in a separate room that had several Christmas trees around it, and a really cool fake ice display with glaciers making it look like a North Pole themed pool. It was awesome!
Best part… some of y’all were there, and it was so much fun! J Don’t know why I had this dream but maybe it was my mind’s visualization of what the Pines would look like or maybe just my mind’s “happy place.” Sadly, Carl was not there. It was great though and I wish I could dream it again. It’s funny how a dream can seem so real when you’re having it. I know, I’m weird…but what a dream! If I had millions, I’d make it a reality.
So, if we were going to build the ultimate getaway...a clubhouse of sorts for us to escape to, where it was Christmas year round, what would it look like? What sort of things would it need to include?
