    Nope, no blues here. I've cancelled Christmas. Easy peasy.

    I have a bit of the blues because we dont have as much money as we usually do this year and had to cut back, which really upsets me. But otherwise the lights and music make me feel alot better.

    I hear ya Babzz....however, I don't plan on doing anything about it! I'd like to be like NoCasa and forgo it completely, but that would be too Scroogey! No decorating for me. Just house lights outside and I'll do my address sign post at the end of the driveway.

    Over the past several years Christmas has lost it's joy for me. I try not to be bummed about it tho, because really, I don't believe in God, which is supposed to be the reason for the season right? So all I am doing, is missing out on an overly commercialized, sanitized money grab! Don't pressure yourself. Just do what makes you and your son feel good about the season.

    yep i am just not into christmas this year. If it wasn't for the kids then i just won't do anything. I was excited and looking forward to it but I just don't really care anymore. I usually go all out decorating and all I did was the tree. I am all for a grinch dinner.

    i have an idea. if you are feeling blue about it why not do some volunteer work or nice things for others and see if that helps snap you out of it? i know it sounds corny but it really does work. we are volunteering as a family on christmas eve and its really nice and makes us feel good.

    I know for me Kitca, that it's not so much the blues, as it is indifference. It's just become so fricken-fracken commercialized I could care less to participate in it.

    I love that you and your family are helping others out. Truly a wonderful sentiment put to action.

    NoCasa....you offering up your hot-tub?? Bathing suits optional?? LOL!!

    Right then. Grinch Christmas it is!

    Leave the tree in the ground
    And make not a sound
    The turkey I abhor
    It's roast beast forever more

    (Ok Suess I'm not but you get the idea!)

    My place could work, neighbours won't mind - I don't have any. Just bring sleeping bags cause after a few glasses of whatever you sure won't be driving home!

    Pick what you want for meat and let me know. Oh, and how many we are feeding. Louis will supply a beautiful roast or a Baron of beef if you like or perhaps a prime rib?

    I have no idea how many or even where. In all seriousness if we want to make plans I'm in. If a number of people would like it at my place that'd be great, but bear in mind I'm in Goulais. I'd love it if people would come there and I'll make a nice dinner, but if you have more than a couple of beer I own your keys! lol

    Failing that, anyone who's serious about this should speak up and then maybe we'll all just get together for coffee (or beer) and work out the details in person. Sound good?
