I wish we could go home to California/Nevada to spend Christmas with our families but its just not in any way possible. We'll be stuck in Idaho D:

Luckily some friends moved up here recently so we'll be spending Christmas with them. It should still be fun and everything, just not quite what we really want it to be.

I've just returned to my parents, for a long holiday!
I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

I plan on going home to spend time with my parents and dogs over winter break, yes. I did it last year. To be honest, I like my personal time, but I also realize that every day with my parents and dogs are to be cherished (we just lost another dog a week ago  :cry: )... Plus, when I'm alone I don't eat well and I really need to be eating better because my digestive system is killing me right now.

I didn't vote since we can only chose one option. I thought I should reply instead. Ever since our parents' divorce, my sister and I always have 4 Christmases. We spend Christmas Eve morning at my dad's house, we have breakfast and open gifts by the tree. We spend Christmas Eve night at my mom's parents house with aunts, uncles, and cousins from my mom's side of the family, my uncle dresses as Santa and hands out the gifts and we have Christmas Eve dinner. We spend Christmas Day morning home with our mom, opening presents under the tree. And we spend Christmas Day night at my dad's parents house with aunts, uncles, and cousins from my dad's side of the family, we exchange gifts and have Christmas dinner.

I said at the In-Laws' place because that is where we will be spending Christmas, and probably New Year as it is at the beach. And, you know - kids. But we are also going away to the bush as a group of friends with our kids before that and will spend some time at home too. I just adore Christmas time!!

It's hard for me to get away from home for the holidays. Lately we've been renting out a pair of furnished rooms at our apartment complex (my brother in law is allergic to our cats) and setting up a Christmas there. My mum and dad and lil brother will come down from Eau Claire and my sister and her husband from Duluth and we'll spend a couple nights together. In the past we've done hotel rooms, but this is cheaper, and much nicer. And I can move all my Christmas decorations from my apartment over there and make it nice and homey.

I'd love to have another Christmas with my husband's family but that involves a plane trip to England, so... that's a little hard to make happen.

Option 12 because we have so many celebrations and obligations that none of the other options fit. Five different places to go. All close to home, but still ... I’m tired just thinking about it. Whew! I’m so glad when Christmas is over.

I'll be home for Christmas because I'll be 8 months pregnant by then and there's no way I'm taking a 13 hour car ride to see my parents when I'm this big.

In my case I'll be the 24th with my family, then on the 25th after a 2 hours drive with my family in law. The 31st with my family in law and the 1st with my family... And then, on the 6th with my family. Non stop christmas going here and there. Not loving it.

I'll be staying home this Christmas as usual. I prefer staying home because it's not a big ordeal with travel and having to be around a bunch of people.

With my friend and her family who are also my made family..so family...Anyways, her parents are truckers so when they get off the road varies. So actually option 12 works because we just don't know right now. Not in a bad way just crazy busy. Once they come in it's Christmas 2.0 and if it's close enough to NYE that's tossed in at the same time. She has two cousins coming in from out of state so they'll be included. There's a ton of cooking and prep but it's a lot of fun.

Just found out I'm working Christmas now... great for me, a nice big fat distraction, but I feel bad for hubby, but at least he can spend it with his dad.
