    Have a nice Christmas eve/day everyone. Hopefully close to the ones you love.

    Most in the USA seem to celebrate Xma$, which is loosely associated with Christmas but a bit more expensive. Anyone have any Christmas (or Xma$) traditions?

    It's 9 hours to go 'til Christmas for me, and in 6 hours I will pack my family (wife and 2 kids) into the car and drive around the rich neighborhood to look at all the Christmas lights on houses while listening to Christmas music.

    Merry Christmas (or Christmahannakwanizikas) everyone!

    Actually giving gifts IS the xmas tradition, you do realize that xmas is a pagan holiday, not a xtian one don't you?

    Feeking cyclones.

    Why do they pick the holidays to wipe out some of my most remote sites, so I am onsite playing in the mud over Christmas (for double my already excessive daily rate).

    Only half true. Christmas integrated with Cristianity more than a thousand years ago - it was even celebrated on the very same day, December 25th. Most of the cliched stuff, though, originated in the Netherlands, and just gradually took hold, over the years. Gift-giving is pretty universal, though. Different types of celebration for a similar purpose, and all.

    Not always, though. There's a funny Christmas tradition from Mexico - In Guanajuato, I think, people traditionally celebrate by eating and partying with friends and relatives. On the day before Christmas, some will tell their children that Viejito Pascuero (Santa Claus) is coming with gifts, but...he's only got a few tired mules and so he may be a little late. The next day, they report that Santa has not yet arrived. Then they celebrate. The next morning, you say to the child something like, "Santa has come, but all he left is this one old shoe!". The saying ends - if the gift is excepted, then you have done a good job of parenting (sign of good character)!

    Yuletide

    Happy Yuletide to everyone Eat, Drink, and be Merry, even if the sabastiani's think its against the holiday's 'true' meaning to give gifts, stuff your face, get drunk and sing badly enough for the neighbors to call the cops on xmas day

    It's only an unpleasant 35C(95F) today on Xmas day.

    Better than the +42C(108F) heatwave over several days of Xmas last year. I think it even got as high as 46C(115F).

    Xmas = beach time.
