Mine it's the saddest christmas I've ever had. For the first we just slept during christmas eve. In addition to that we are not in good terms with each other(my father and I).I felt the gap growing between us. But I'm trying to understand him. I hope this coming new year's eve will be fine.

The Cristmas is not important for me. Time is time. 2010 or 2011... It doesn't matter. This Cristmas is not good for me too, my boy friend left me. But I won't worry for this, because next Cristmas I fall in love, why not.

That's too bad to hear. About your relationship with your father. I live half way around the world from my parents. And it is during these times that I miss them the most. If I were near them, I wouldn't be able to stand having a tiff with them at these joyous occasion. I hope you patch things up for the new year!

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope your Christmas will be a wonderful one next year, and you can look back on this as just a little bump in the road. My Christmas wasn't as exciting as it was last year. I didn't have time to finish everyone's gifts, as school just ended and I couldn't make anything during finals. I didn't get that many gifts, but our family's going shopping tomorrow, so I hope that makes up for it. Happy New Year :)

hello vycess! i'm sorry about the way your christmas eve turned out to be. Mine was not very good either, i slept through the noche buena and woke up during lunchtime of christmas day! i got drunked celebrating the natal day of a colleague and i guess i had let myself got too much to drink. i was not in a very good mood then, having found out that my bf had betrayed me and did not admit such even after i got hold of the evidence of his foolishness. Christmas should have been spent in happiness and i should have spent it that way if i had not let my emotions get the better of me. I was in pain because of the betrayal and i just didn't feel it appropriate the joyfulness of the season knowing that i was breaking inside. I said "was" because i finally got a hold of myself and i don't want to extend the melancholy of my situation. Of course, my bf had betrayed me and it hurt, discovering it on the eve of christmas too but it should not be enough to make may world go upside down. I am the master of my own self and i don't want to carry any more hurts in me, despite everything. Now, i am facing today and the days and year to come with renewed vigor and faith. Life is too short to be spent on melancholy and despair. i;m casting my net for more reasons to be happy and joyous about my life, about the people who share my life and for everything that I have and hope to have in the coming days. i hope that you will be able to patch up things with your father. Remember, life is too short and we cannot know what tomorrow will bring. better act on it fast and whatever life may give you, may you continue to savor the beauty of life and the environment you live in despite the trials and sorrows you may encounter. Merry christmas and happy new year!

That's sad to hear. Hope you and your father will be okay again. For me, this christmas is better than last year because no one got sick in this day. Last year, we spend christmas in the hospital because my mother got sick. Now, it is very much okay because we spend christmas together with my family and other relatives.

Today was wonderful and it went off without any arguments or anything going wrong. Everyone loved their gifts and it could not have gone better. I got all of what I wanted and then I got $50 cash to put towards my sell phone next month. Yeah baby11

To some, my christmas may sound depressing but to others it is a memorable one. A friend passed on during christmas eve. We cancelled our eve dinner party and as many of us went to spend time with the husband. The next day was my wife's birthday, but we chose to spend most of the time with the family of our friend. The whole episode taught and reminded many of us that friends are forever and cannot be replaced. That's my christmas.

I am having the same trouble with my oldest daughter. This is the first year we have not called to talk on the phone for the holiday. It is up to her, I am not going to force myself on her. If she wants to be in contact, she needs to take the steps since she is the one that broke it all off. Don't get me wrong I have tried to communicate with her on several levels. She just doesn't want the connection. Look at your father as a person, he maybe going through a difficult time for many reasons. We take out our frustrations on our loved ones more than we want to admit. Give it time, be there when you can be. Don't stop living either, get on with your life as well..

Hi vycess. Sorry to hear that you just slept the night away. I think this is the right time to reconcile w/ your father. I know how you feel because I also had some misunderstanding with my father before. Lets put it this way my dear.. we only have one father and nobody can replace him. It doesn't matter whose wrong or right. What is important is that you and your father will have a good harmony again.. That is the true spirit of Christmas. New year is fast approaching. winning back your father will be the greatest gift you will receive this coming new Year.. Have a nice day.
