Got about 7 or 8 bins with various decorations I put up around the house, wreaths and the like on the walls.

    My brother's birthday is Dec 4, my birthday is Jan 5, add to that we're Orthodox, so New Years is just as big if not bigger than for most other Westerners.

    And the girl I'm seeing is Russian, and Russian Orthodox do their Christmas on Jan 7 due to the older calendar, so it's a big time of year for me. A lot of work and money, but also a lot of good times.
    Damn, you’re hardcore, with two trees and a gf that you no doubt chose just for these reasons.

    I always visit family on Christmas, given that every other member of the family has their namedays during the winter holidays. Not that I mind, my mother really transforms the house into a winter wonderland. My contribution will be a Christmas pavlova wreath (because my gift to people is diabetes apparently).

    This year I'm debating renting a santa costume and cruising around in my Challenger with the windows down dressed as santa with this playing at full blast:

    Or you could talk to the gf about the santa suit. Many people are into that thing.

    Hosting the partners family for the first time. Trying not to get too stressed about it but keen to ensure its Christmassy enough, and not look like we've made no effort.

    Could be fun, and at least I'll know afterwards if it was less effort/stress than going to theirs.

    Seriously guys, this forum would be a better place if everyone just stopped acknowledging Zenkai. It's just demeaning to everyone.

    There's already a bit of an age difference, she's 12 years younger (I'm 37, she's 25), dressing up like an old man would just be on the nose a bit.

    Enjoy the time off work. Since Christmas comes on a Wednesday this year, and I have some unused vacation days left, I'm planning on a very short week at work.

    I will be very productive and get all kinds of stuff done around the.....okay, who am I kidding, there will probably be a lot of sitting on my ass playing video games.

    Snuggle with the wife Christmas night then head up to our cabin up Mt. Laguna until New Year. I cut plenty of firewood in June and July to keep the fireplace going 24-hr for the whole week.

    Can't believe people charge their presents b/c they can't afford them otherwise. So fucking stupid.
    Wow, that was extreme.
    English is not my main language so grammar errors might happen.

    No, but I've already gotten some shade thrown at me from friends about dating a woman 12 years younger.

    And ugh, I turn 38 next month. I still haven't developed my mutant powers yet.

    Christmas Eve I have dinner at my parents house and we play a trivia game. Each person makes 4 questions for each other person and if they get the question correct they get a gift from the middle of the table, if they get it wrong the person who asked the question gets the gift. The game goes until all questions have been asked and then when gifts are gone from the table, you can steal gifts from others. We really have a great time playing. The gifts are small stuff like candy, useful house stuff and lotto tickets.

    Christmas day we open gifts in the morning, eat our big meal at noon and then go to my grandfathers house for a few hours (he is 91) then we come home and have a small dinner.

    Probably chill with my folks or something Christmas Eve, open presents and whatnot. But they're going to my step-grandparents' house for Christmas, which because of certain family members will be the set of the goddamn Jerry Springer Show that day. So, given the option to stay home because I'm 27 and also have zero tolerance for drama, my plan is to order a pizza if they're open (or get a Digiorno otherwise), watch some anime/movies, and play some video games. I think just having peace and quiet and not having to share the couch will be one hell of a Christmas present.
