I have none to do. My Mom is gone and my Dad's mental state is such that he's not always "there." Alzheimer's does terrible things to ones' mind. My other relatives are scattered all over the U.S. and I've not had contact with most of them for 10 or more years. So this year, the 5 days off I have in conjunction with Christmas will be spent being a reclusive vegetable in my apartment.

I haven't cared much for holidays for the last 15 or so years so one day, to me, is no different than the rest.

Bigcountry,

I get the same hit each year also... Wife's Birthday on the 9th, Christmas on the 25th and our Wedding Anniversary on the 30th. The married Trifecta.

Feel for ya, flash. My dad had Alzheimers too and it's an awful disease, particularly in its latter stages.

AFG, I hated the holidays, too, for many years. My Mom died in late November in 1994 and I just trudged along for the sake of the kids after that. Now I have a grandchild and the holidays have new meaning for me.
But it wouldn't bother me one bit to sit alone on any holiday. This past Thanksgiving I had nothing to do as the kids went to their dad's for Thanksgiviing (I've been divorced for 17 years). Didn't bother me one bit.

Everybody I know either needs nothing or $50,000. I don't have the 50k but got lots of nothing. The Lovely Mrs just said "Let's get no Christmas presents this year". I'll probably get her some .45 ammo.

Well i guess i am the odd one out in this thread too. We finished up our shopping before Thanksgiving. It is the earliest we have ever gotten it knocked out. I have two little ones, an almost 3 year old little girl, and a 7 year old boy. They are at a fun age for Christmas. My wife an i agreed not to get each other anything... but i lied and already broke my promise! So I am ALL DONE!!!!

I bought this for my daughter:

Christmas Shopping - The Club House

But then I decided that it was too pretty...(I LOVE the case hardening),
so I'm keeping it for myself. :P

Don't worry...
I bought this for her instead;

Got 13 year old grandson a 410 with wood carving done by a personal friend of 30 + years! He will remember it always. Got one granddaughter (she is 6) a Red Ryder Daisy BB gun and still have two more left! I am sure I will find something they can shoot before I quit!! Went to Wally World on the way home yesterday and got the BB gun, couple of boxes 410 shells, another shotgun and a gallon of milk. Went home with it all after about 15 minutes. God I love Texas and the US of A. We are fortunate to be here and exercise the privileges of citizenship in the greatest country in the world!!! JMHO!!
