Well it's Christmas Eve...

Time to start celebrating and all of that jazz. I'll be going to my aunt and uncle's tonight their Christmas Eve party - it's a bit of a tradtion. It used to be that my grandparents would host it every year, but since they've passed away, my aunt and uncle took it over. It's usually a pretty good time. Lots of food, booze, and laughing. I plan on having a few drinks tonight. Then tomorrow, it's a low key day at my parents house - we might go to my Uncle Donald's as well at some point, but pretty low key.

My biggest pet peeve about Christmas this year, is that people want to make their gifts even with yours. It doesn't work that way my dears, your supposed to give because you want to, and that's it. Please remember that for tomorrow. I love the idea of giving and finding something thoughtful for people, but it makes me sad if they think it's just a chore for Christmas... or if they wait until the last weekend to do their shopping, obviously it wasn't that thoughtful then. Me, I got 95% of my shopping done weeks ago, and even all of my wrapping done by last week. Of course, I didn't have to buy for a lot of people, but still. I tricked Mandy and gave her gifts earlier this month, that way she's not obligated to buy for me :)

But yay, Christmas is almost over, and soon my bank account will be much happier because I'll be done buying gifts! :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy time with your families. And remember, tis the season of giving, not receiving.

Merry Christmas! Hope you had a good time at your aunt and uncles! Hope you gave nice thoughtful things and received some back as other people were doing the giving :)~
