Default Christmas Plans?

I plan to spend Christmas with my mom and dad.

I also plan to watch every college football bowl game during the Christmas season and some college basketball.

I also will be going to a lot of stores-not to necessarily buy something, but to window shop. I like going to Radio Shack-Goody's-Target and J.C. Penny's.

We're doing a "Christmas" this weekend in Minnesota. We are off and have the time to go to see my mother in law.
I'll be off the weekend before Christmas also, and will likely go see my daughter, if she cannot get back here.

Think we might be going to Atlanta, but that's around New Year's. Nothing special...

Bama, I usually don't do much around Christmas, as I think it has become entirely too commercial and people have forgotten the real reason for the season.
I spent a couple of hours with my sister and my wife's uncle in the Twin Cities today, and I'll go see my dad a couple of times this season also.

I'm unofficial done with school until January 3. By unofficial, I mean that I have to hand a couple papers and take one final, but I'm back home and will just drive to the campus when needed (which is only 3 days this week).

Other than that, I'll spend the Saturday before Christmas with my dad's side of the family and Christmas day with my mom's side. As I said in the Thanksgiving thread, both my mom's family and dad's family are relatively local, so it makes things nice and easy.

I'm hoping for some cash this Christmas.

And I'll probably spend New Year's some of my friends. That'll be cool.

I am planning on going to Washington D.C. December 16th through the 24th (we will actually be driving the trip, so it won't entirely be spent in Washington), home with my mother and family on December 25th and then back at work on December 26th.

My niece has been saving up money for nearly a year, expecting her uncle to take her to the Mall of America.

How far are the twin cities from the Ames/Des Moines area?

Catman I just spend time with my parents. We have a nice meal and enjoy some football.

I do enjoy walking around the mall. I was walking out of Target Saturday and found a bag on the floor full of new earrings. Bad thing they are not my type.

People drop all kind of stuff while shopping. Yes even money or leave billfolds on top of pay phones. You really have to be careful this time of year.

I will be at home watching lots of sports while spending time with family. My wife and I are expecting our second child this January so we will not be doing any traveling. It will be our second little girl. In preparing for any boys that could be hovering around years from now I have purchased my third gun and my wife has purchased a gun safe for me this Christmas.

I agree with Catman that Christmas is too commercial, my family usually spends a lot of time doing church activities this time of year which is a good reminder of what we are celebrating.:thumbup:

My grandparents are coming up from Florida. Other that I'll probably watch some football and hang out with my friends. And of course looking forward to the Outback Bowl.
