Merry Christmas!


Your Christmas is Modern



Your wish for the New Year is more happiness.

For you, Christmas is secular holiday. Religion doesn’t play a big part in it.

You are patient when it comes to Christmas. You don’t celebrate too early, and you don’t like seeing holiday decorations in October.

You like Christmas traditions, but you’re not uptight about them. You do things your way.

You like to celebrate Christmas your own way, and you don’t like to have to compromise.

You are too busy to really get into Christmas, but you try to do a little to celebrate.

You like giving to your friends and family during Christmas. You focus on the people you’re close to.

A somewhat scattered answer, but not too far off the mark, really.

On a related note: are holiday-letter writers the original bloggers? And if you didn’t get around to writing your own holiday letter, you can adapt the Leflers’, which came in “mad-libs” form. Also – not a “secret Santa,” but a Santa secret.

If you’re celebrating today and tomorrow, in any way at all, I wish you a very happy holiday!

    Kathy (Bermudaonion and Jessi – Merry Christmas to you both!

    And as for finding links, I usually don’t have to go too far out of my way – I subscribe to a very silly amount of blog feeds :-) (currently at 315, NOT counting the “blogs I’m following” via Blogger)!

    Without even looking I can say mine is modern. :)

    Have a merry, and relaxing, Christmas! Hopefully you are off of work on Friday; it’s nice to relax the day after. :)

    Mike – No, I’m working on the 26th, and we’re going to my mother-in-law’s house on Christmas Day, so we’ll be spending at least 4 or 5 hours in the car on Thursday. But the office should be quiet on Friday, at least.

    To you and Janet – Merry Christmas!

    Hi, Florinda! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

    My Christmas is unique:
    Your wish for the New Year is more happiness.

    For you, Christmas is secular holiday. Religion doesn’t play a big part in it.

    You are patient when it comes to Christmas. You don’t celebrate too early, and you don’t like seeing holiday decorations in October.

    Christmas traditions aren’t all that important to you. You participate in the few you like.

    You like to celebrate Christmas your own way, and you don’t like to have to compromise.

    You are too busy to really get into Christmas, but you try to do a little to celebrate.

    You give a big during the holidays but nowhere near as much as you’d like to.

    Lenore – That’s a post by my friend Anna Lefler. She’s FULL of good, funny ideas :-).

    Wendy (Literary Feline) – It looks like you have some elements of the “modern” Christmas there, but others are different – I guess that’s what makes it “unique”

    To both of you and Melody – Merry Christmas, and thanks for finding the time to stop by!

    Serena – Too much driving and I’m getting a cold, but otherwise it was a very nice Christmas. Hope yours was too!

    And where are the Christmas traditionalists? Just askin’…
