We don't go in for that outdated quasi-Christian stuff. Rather slaughter a sheep on the front porch and read its entrails by the full moon. Then we dance naked through the neighborhood stopping for orgies at selected houses.

All rather low key and ordinary really......

Oh yes, its all rather dull here.

Seriously, I will be on the roof tomorrow stringing lights along the eaves. Then the joy of trying to find the ornaments and trimmings we dumped into boxes last year.
If all goes well, I may actually start on UK Christmas cards also.

Hey, hey.

I'm outta here.
Before I moved here I came over for Christmas twice.
Since I got here I have or will be going home at Christmas.

Going nowhere. Don't really care to either, to be honest, it'll be little'uns first Christmas and while she won't remember it, we will, and we'd rather not spend it travelling. To that end, this year it's going to be as British as possible, the inlaws will be coming here as opposed to us dragging around, we'll have a big Christmas dinner, watch the box and play games, and drink plenty of booze!

And I AM taking boxing day off, no matter what.
