Urghhh I don't want to think about it. It's usually all last minute.. how can anyone plan anything the state of things. Most likely off to my mother's with my daughter where I don't have to cook, see my son and grandbabies, then home after dinner, and bored later on for the following few days/nights. Disagreements about COVID ruined last year. If I had my way I'd be on holiday too.

Also last year I had a painting to work on for a deadline for Christmas so that was working flat out and not much time to do anything else. More last minute than usual.

I might work over Christmas as I have no family wanting me to stay with them. I've worked Christmas other years and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a completely different atmosphere from staff and patients.

Can you buy or borrow a proper wheelchair ramp? Or get financial help with making modifications to the home?

My children, theur partners and my grandchildren will all pile in either on Christmas day or Boxing day.
It gets loud and messy and lots of food is consumed.
Tuesday, I'll go back to work. :-(

I usually visit as many relatives and friends over the holiday period as possible. I lead a busy life and don't get the time to see them all during the year.

The last couple of years I have joined a friend and her son. He cooks, I take a bottle of wine for her. I will probably be doing the same this year.

None, other than a day of rest.  I might go out walking, if I feel like it.

At this moment in time, I envisage that I will be on my own on Christmas Day. Last year I spent Christmas Day at my Mum's where I done all the cooking as it was easier than doing 4 x 45-mile trips to bring her here and back home. Boxing Day this year will hopefully be spent in the company of my friend.

Am truly Humbug, as those close to me know and 'dare not' mention it til Christmas Eve. I oft was cross at my old nan wanting to spend the day on her own when  I arrived to drive her reluctantly to the family knees up! I now appreciate how she felt!!

It's just not as fun now my kids are older, they like to go do their own thing of course, so we'll do the usual in the day and then disperse in some way, grandkids make it more fun, I was thinking of getting a dinosaur costume to wear in the garden to play some fun games... my mother would be opposed as she's very Mrs bucket with the neighbours, which makes me want to do that even more.. Once I'm back home Christmas night...bored to death.. fed up and bored, the rest can't be over fast enough.

Not the best of times for some of you here .Mine will be a quiet one , with the little family and Christmas dinner brought here , to me and my son . Daughter has changed tradition a little to suit working hours, understandable  , I go with the flow , think my Christmas day service will be on zoom , with my church this year 

did  spend Christmas , in Prague many years ago with my hubby a  beautiful holiday too, we did not know that was to have been our last holiday, as I lost him in the early January .and his birthday was New Years Eve 

Christmas is a time for folks to do what brings happiness, to yourselves and family and friends not what you feel you must do
