    Your boyfriend pretty much sums it up. Not really worth it when it's just me. I do get into the Christmas spirit, just not in a candles-in-the-window/ wreath-y kinda way. I prefer caroling. There's nothing better than singing Deck the Halls to a complete stranger while doing the "Carlton" dance.

    Is this a result of drinking some spiked eggnog beforehand?

    I don't bother because Mona & Joey used to destroy anything I would do.
    Jump on tables knock candles down (not burning of course), eat christmas tree branches, play baseball with the ornaments, and generally make a mockery of everything I put out. You know what? Maybe I should buy some stuff and put it out for Joey to do whatever the heck he wants to do.

    we started a tradition of wrapping the dogs presents in tissue paper - so now nothing else can be wrapped in tissue paper alone - or it ends up opened.
    He knows those are his, and we can't put them out until xmas morning.
    the rest of the presents in normal wrapping paper can be out the whole month and nothing happens.

    We have not been able to put presents out until Christmas Eve night for the past 8 years. Bogie was a puppy and was into chewing paper. I assume he'd be over it by now, but its just gotten to be a habit (tradition) that nothing goes under the tree until Christmas Eve.
    And now we have Waldo, so better safe than sorry.

    Dozer is a Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) - highly intelligent.
    but with the kids grown up - he makes the fun Christmas morning.
    we wrap his stuff like hard candy / poppers - he's so funny opening his own presents , although sometimes we help a little by playing tug with him.

    Bogie and Rosie head straight for their stockings on Christmas morning. They KNOW and they head straight for them. I have many pictures of Bogies head buried inside his stocking. Will be interesting this year with the big doofus.
    We just put their stuff in their stockings and don't wrap it up. But we take down the stockings and put them on the floor and they manage to get out what's in them.

    Re: Christmas 2007

    Every year my place of employment has a departmental decorating contest with some nice prizes. This year the theme is "Christmas in your favorite city". I'm drawing a blank here. Does anyone have some creative suggestions? We could do something from another country and decorate in their traditions (like put shoes on a fireplace instead of stockings) but I was trying to think of something more creative than that. Usually we are the crazy department. The first year we did Christmas on the Enterprise Bridge and had a Captain's (Yule) Log, computer terminals set up with appropriate screen savers, big cut-outs of the crew, and lots of other little things. Last year we got lazy and just had a festivus pole.

    I suggested Christmas in Baghdad (with mines and soldiers and bloody body parts) but nobody else liked that idea.
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.
