...hmm..too bad for me I have work.I have to celebrate it with my team mates.My work starts at 6am and ends at 3pm but then I have to sleep at 9pm.Probably I'll have to sleep early and has to wake up at midnight and work like a zombie the next day...Christmas Day is my moms birthday as well and too bad I have to make some adjustments for my schedule.How I wish I have a beautiful stats so that I could bid for a holiday off at the office.So do you have plans right now where to celebrate your Christmas and New Years Eve?I envy you guys...at least you can spend it with your family and friends..

I always long to celebrate Christmas. It's because during that time we will be having a get together party with my two sisters and their families at my parents place. It's a once in a year event so I really make sure that I am present in that occasion.(God willing). Hopefully, everybody will have a very joyful and exciting Christmas this 2008...About new year, we will be spending it at my own home. Just my family and some relatives of my husband. Like it was the past years... Wishing everybody a joyous Christmas and a bountiful new year!

hi meticulo.Honestly it's going to be a sad Christmas for me bec. I can't be up celebrating it at midnight bec. I have to wake up the following day for work.But hoping I could catch up when in the afternoon.Too bad I can't file a vacation leave during Christmas bec. of my work schedule.

That's the sad part of being employed. That's why I feel happy now that I am just at home, working on net because anytime there will be parties and special occasions I can easily come along. Anyway, it's just a matter of sacrifice. Just enjoy the short time you can celebrate it. After all, everyday can be Christmas day if you just wish too. Be happy!

I hope I will be able to celebrate the holidays with my family. I already told my wife that I will not be spending Christmas and New Year's eve with them because I would be working. Still, a miracle might happen and I might be able to come home for Christmas. Cheers!!

for thanksgiving it is a tradition for us to go to my grandmothers house. we do it every year and we eat so much food and so much desserts. we also pick names out of a bowl of who your going to buy a gift for because i have such a large family its to hard to get stuff for everyone. for Christmas we go back to my grandmas and exchange gifts and eat again and for new years we usually stay home and celebrate.
