Will you do something tomorrow for Christmas Eve?

Can you believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve? Where did this past year go? It seems to have flown by faster than Santa’s sleigh!

Will you do something tomorrow night to celebrate Christmas Eve? Will you go to friends’ or family’s house? Will you host? Will you go to an event or out to dinner? Or will you just be home with your loved one(s), enjoying the peace and quiet? Please tell us in the poll below.

Wherever you’ll be, we wish you a very merry Christmas Eve.

Always a Xmas Eve church service then home for homemade onion soup. Although the last few years we haven’t followed this. But going to start getting more on board with it. Otherwise it helps anchor children with old traditions and new ones starting. SE Michigan saw a green Xmas this year with temps in the 40s and 50s. Unheard of because it has always snowed and roads fun to travel on every single year.

I’m going to do something for Christmas Eve, but I’m not going anywhere or hosting, there are other things you can do!

After flying in from Apache Junction to visit with one Son, we’ll be driving about 150 miles to the other Son’s house for Christmas. First time in 3 years…….. Hope it’s safe

Albuquerque luminaria tour, we will be setting up ballon glow (giant luminaria) along the route, although the winds do not look too promising.

Although I’d like to visit family, the current state of Covid makes that travel a poor choice. I’m SAFE where I am so, I’ll stay put.

Having left the rain of the Pacific Northwest our Arizona plans were to host some neighbors for Happy Hour around our portable propane firepit, however, it appears our Arizona location will likely have some rain. We’ll work on plan “b” and soldier on.

Rain? … In the Pacific Northwest? (She says, after living here with webbed feet for 75+ years. 😆 ) We may have a White Christmas. And anything that comes down over the weekend will stay for awhile, with the temps expected in the teens and 20s for the first part of the week. Have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy and happy 2022, Ray. 🙂 –Diane

SE Michigan had rain all day Xmas day. Unheard of because every year we get the snow and the fun roads to travel on. Weird to have a green Xmas this year but I will take it after years and years of white Xmas.

My family has hosted a breakfast (for family, Church family, and neighbors on Christmas morning or Christmas Eve morning for as long as I can remember. I’m now 72 years old and have been in charge for the last 15 or so years. We’ll have 50 to 60 guests tomorrow. It’s a tradition we just can’t give up.

Just because we aren’t “going out or hosting” doesn’t mean we are doing nothing.

The question seems to offer a lot of space for a less snarky reply. Merry Christmas!

Our Family tradition.

All adults draw names in October and purchase one present for the secretly selected name drawn. The kids and grand kids are all exempt from the “one present”plan!

Then on Christmas eve, after candle light services (not this year-too much virus around), we get nearby family over for eggnog and cookies, followed by the opening of one gift by all present.

Christmas day activities vary, but much less pressure to rise early (more difficult as we age).

Here is a wish that everyone has a wonderful Holiday! Hope 2022 is better for all.

My wife and I will have a quiet candlelite dinner at home with steak, fresh shrimp twice baked potato and green beans; and a toast of wine. This is now a tradition which we started after our kids passed away….. Quiet time to reflect and be thankful for our many years and fair health and being able to live in the USA, a country still free of oppression.

We extend to all of you our wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a great year in 2022 – and we will beat this virus!!

I wish to extend condolensces to your family on the passing of your children. Parents are suppose to go first not the children. As for the US being free of oppression? I won’t go there. Merry Xmas

I said that we’ll go somewhere and we do, but it is much earlier than Christmas eve. We go to my wife’s parents’ home on or about the 22nd and stay until late-morning on Christmas Day. We then go to my parents’ home. We would stay there also for a few days when we lived 10 hours away (our parents are 75 minutes apart). Now that we live about 3 minutes from my parents and see them daily, we only spend the balance of the afternoon there and then go to our home and are there Christmas night.

Just my 91 year-old parents and our daughter (after she gets off work). Christmas day will be the same.

We retired early at 50 and went full-time, which lasted 10 years. We were DINK’s (Double Income No Kids). To be honest, one of the few downsides to fulltiming was we found most RVers to be a little boring!! One can only eat so many S’mores. We still have a motorhome and do extended trips, and yes, we find many RVers to be a bit boring. The fun RVers seem to be aging Boomers, a class of people to which we belong.

Oh, we are headed to San Antonio for Christmas and have dinner reservations for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Staying at the historic Menger Hotel.

Wow! Boring? You must be meeting the wrong RVers! I’ve been fulltime now for 11+ years (solo) and love the lifestyle and all the wonderful fun people. Never a dull moment for me!
