Anyway, after I shop, I like to order a pizza (there's a place here on the South Side that is open til 10pm on the 24th... Oh yeah!) then wrap until Midnight Mass. I come home after the big festivus in church, indulge in some drinks and wrap some more, watching my LOTR DVDs or some of my werewolf and zombie movies, basically staying up all night. Then when the sun peeks over the horizon, I crash out for a few hours, get up and make myself Christmas breakfast. Nothing exciting, just toast with peanut butter and banana. I'll watch Christmas Vacation, sleep some more, make a few phone calls, finally joining my family for Christmas dinner about 6pm. Finally, we open presents. All in all a very fun, laid back kind of Christmas. No stress, no dog and pony show for relatives and in-laws, no trip to someone's abode in the land of Far Far Away, either. A wonderful, peaceful holiday. I also leave my little tree on all night. There's something about sleeping with the tree lights on that I love.
Merry Christmas, my Imaginarians. I hope you all have a joy-filled,peaceful holiday. Thank you for all for your friendship.
