Yes, mimpi, all those things. Most importantly for me, the perfect Christmas is one where family and friends share the warmth of the season, and each others' company. I am happiest when my house is full of people, having a nice, relaxed day, for one day.

mimpi, we had a wonderful day, yesterday. My kids were here, my daughter's boyfriend came with his 19 month old daughter. She kept us all quite entertained. I have missed having small children in my house at this time of year. One part of Christmas is all about the kids, and it was nice to have one here, again. The other part is, even with the economy the way it is, me quitting my job in June, and it being a slim Christmas, we still all had a wonderful time with family and friends. Our neighbors stopped by and had dinner with us, and we just all sat around talking, laughing, and having a good day. I hope that your day was as wonderful as mine.*S*

Heya! A perfect Christmas for me is a complete family.^_^ Our own family (Dad, Mom, me, pets, and helpers) shared dinner together. Its traditionally on the eve of Christmas day or an hour or two before the official Christmas day but we had ours early tonight. Then an even more perfect Christmas would be if the whole extended family is complete tomorrow at our Grandma's house. Im not really sure if thats possible cause I know that one of our cousins might be away on a study review. Hopefully he makes it tomorrow..^_^

So it starts today evening, great! Is it just kinda feast or some rituals are there as well? Tell me more about it. And yes, nothing like having the family with you on such occasions. It feels complete. And tell me about your pet also. BTW, did you straighten your hair? I did not, my mom told me taht i already have pretty much straight hair and ironing might harm it. But I will , may be next year. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

It is just some kind of feast with lots of food, hehehe We have 2 dogs. One is 2 years old (was born on our garage^_^) and the other was a puppy. Mom received it as a gift from a friend for Christmas. Nop, not yet anyway.^_^ Im gonna have to agree with your Mom, but if you really want to, why not right? A new year is coming, time to try out new things at least once.

For me it has very little to do with all the bells and whistles such as decorated trees and carols and all that stuff. As long as I am with those that I love and have some good food and merriment all around me then I am easily satisfied! Happy Christmas and New Year to you too my friend!

Nothing like having the family and loved around around and we really feel the need to be together around this time. It makes it most special. What are your plans James? And is Cjay still playing with the new phone? Tell her to give some rest to the fingers and she better does some friendlotting .

Our Little Tree - This year, we were all very depressed due to certain circumstances but, once Christmas drew near, we all began to feel better. This is the little tree I inherited from my mother last year. A little fiber-optic tree that twinkles when it's turned on. We didn't buy a real tree this year because of the depression everyone had but, once I pulled out and set up this little tree, I started to feel much better!
Hi Mimpi, My idea of a perfect Christmas? One where everyone is happy. That's it. It doesn't matter to me how many lights are twinkling or how many gifts are given or received. The kind or amount of food isn't important. But, seeing a smile on everyone's face is what makes Christmas Christmas for me. I like the fact that wars are halted temporarily. There's a kind of spiritual charm that seems to fall over the Earth and I love that! I wish we could have Christmas Day 365 days of the year (366 on leap year, naturally)! Of course, I do like seeing the decorations, the traditional foods, gifts piled under the tree, carols, etc. But, even if they weren't there, just the feeling that happens on Christmas day around the world is enough to make me happy. I hope you, too, have a very Merry Christmas and a terrific New Year!

A perfect Christmas for me would be visit friends,share the spirit of Christmas with them and spend a whole lot of time with family and loved ones enjoying the goodies, the cakes and having a jolly time. Itr happens to be christmas today and while i was driving happened to notice some destitute kids on the road and feel that i should do something for them to make their christmas special for them too. Merry Christmas to you too Mimpi.
