Doing anything new for Christmas?

I dont think I will be doing anything new for Christmas. Just glad Im still here. The Internet makes it easier to purchase things for a hermit like me but that takes away half the "fun" of it. The Holidays have traditional been a time for family and friends to get together. In the Internet age you have to make sure to get off the computer and interact with real people. The Internet makes it easier to buy things but its nothing like being around real people. I just bought my little girl her first guitar, and I plan to buy them a wii. The Holidays are a special time to refocus your spirit and your will to continue to push ahead. Happy Holdays

Nope not doing any thing new for Christmas because I don't do Christmas. When I was younger my family and I did Christmas, but that was ages ago. So there will be no presents, no tree, and no lights. It's doesn't bother me a bit. Just think of all of the money I'm saving. The Christmas season is actually a very busy time for me because I have online stores and I read tarot cards. So instead of spending money, I'm making it. I guess for me Christmas is just another day.

Getting used to not celebrating like everyone else takes a strong perspective. As a kid growning up Im not sure I understood. My kids today would have trouble understanding but if it was presented to them like it was presented to us, maybe they would be okay.With all that goes on in their lives I try my best to give them Christmas as many days as I can. Where do you shop for Christmas gifts and what cards do you read? Why do people buy more online during Christmas time?

You said: Where do you shop for Christmas gifts and what cards do you read? Why do people buy more online during Christmas time? Um I don't do Christmas, remember. so that means that I don't buy gifts. And you wanted to know what cards that I read. I already said tarot cards or are you wondering what style of deck I'm using. If that is the case I'm using the Rider Waite deck.

I mean do you do horoscopes and numerology . What is the science of tarot cards?Does it have more signifigance during the holidays? I have a newsmagazine I do. I wanted to include an article about astrology. I want to talk to and include an expert.

Never appreciate Christmas as much as I am this year. More appreciative of still being here in decent health and able to reflect. The holidays are a special time for parents to bring in the family and reflect on how they have lived their jouney. Around you, you have children, nieces, nephews and friends. The memories, and the reminesceing goes on and oftrn of the road forward usually comes into focus. If you spend your time balanced it usually restarts your battery ifyou overextend in frivolity you may need the rest of the year to recharge. My father is 86, Sorry for your lost

I am not really sure whether I would do anything new this Christmas. Before I really bought gifts for my family in the mall by myself. I have to line up on the cashier to pay those items. Our mall here has a very long line in the casher during Christmas Holidays. But this Christmas I have a color coding with my decors at home. I think that is something new this year.

One of the great beauties of Christmas is the decoration and the lights. Here in Houston there are several streets where everyone lights up and decorates their home. Its a great tourist attraction. People from aroung the world come to it. We've seen a giant santa and snowman littered with sparkling, illuminated lights. There are luminescent Candy canes and reindeer sparkling with red, blue and silver lights. Mostly there are long limbs of lights crossing from tree to tree and connected across to the trees on the otherside. Its a grand spectacle of b euaty and design. Some The streets and there are many are of Scott and Yellowstone in Houston, Texas.

MyLot is one of the sights where you dont get bored and can get some measure of truth and freedom. During Cgristmas time its good to have aplace to go and interact vitually with people even in a limited way.

I'm not doing anything different than I normally do, apart from I'm going to be doing my shopping mostly online. This is because I don't have much money right now, and the temptation is too high for me to buy things, so I'm only going to buy what I NEED for people, and nothing more, from the internet. Plus, you can often get a lot of bargains from the internet, with some sites offering free postage if you spend over a certain amount, which is perfect if there are a few things you need from there. If I go into town shopping, it can cost me around £10 to get there and back using public transport, so I do actually save a lot of money shopping online instead!

My belief is, the Internet makes Christmas more distant aand less human. Its too easy to stow away at our computer and hide away from Human interaction. Our there places that can give a rewarding Internet Christmas experience? I laugh at the people that sream and yell in chatroomslike their conversation has anything real and tanglable to hold onto. Occasionly we can find an internet connection worth holding on too. But mostly not, Where are the good shopping places?
