    I celebrate that my mother cooks for me and my brothers. We also give presents to each other, but I'm not sure if you'd call that celebrating Christmas. :D

    I don't think my mom'll be home for Christmas. See, my grandad has had to go up to Cleveland clinic several times for his colostamy. They found an infection over here at Indian Path, so they left Thursday...... sucks. Also might be gettin pretty much nothin over here at dads, cuss he was gonna buy a muzzleloader but when he called Cabellas they were all out. He has $100 he can spend on each of his kids,(three of us me, a 7 year old, and a 2 year old) so I'll probably be gettin a splash cybol. Since only like, 1 other person on this forum knows what that is, its a small cymbol, but I've always wanted one because they sound cool lol.

    Yeah.It's usually pretty low-key,giving presents,seeing close family.This time I think we're spending some of the day at my brother's place.I think the best part of Chrissy,apart from the actual day,has to be the work Xmas party :draught:

    I do but not in the religious sense. All of my family is atheist but we still believe christmas is a great time to come together as a family and celebrate good tidings.

    Yup... going to carol singing, then Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve (the one day in the day we actually go to church), presents in the morning, long drawn-out brunch, Christmas dinner in the afternoon/evening usually with some of the extended family (this year I think about 14 of us, complete with cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents), more present-giving to and from our grandparents after dinner, long talks and alcohol into the night... I love Christmas :D. Like Kel, it's more a family than a religious thing though.

    Yes & no

    No to all religious aspects. Lets face it Jesus wasn't even born on 25th Dec anyway, it's just another hijacked 'pagan' occasion. As a pagan festival (;)) I partake wholeheartedly although I'm not overally keen on the commercialism of it all. I prefer giving presents more than receiving. Raising a glass (or few) more than stuffing my face...
