Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

^ We love Norad's Santa Tracker in our house. My boys are too old to believe in Santa but they love maps, so Norad is on the computer all of the 24th.

On Christmas day it's always just me, my husband, and our three children. My family live in Canada and the Netherlands, and though Stu's family live about an hour's drive away we never spend Christmas day with them. They're the type of people who expect everyone to come to them, and would never come here. Heck, they never did that when we lived two blocks away from them. So when our oldest child had her first Christmas I put my foot down and told my husband that we would be spending Christmas day at home. If people wanted to visit us, that was fine, but we weren't going to go anywhere. He didn't like it at first but 14 years later he appreciates it. I know it sounds nasty on my part, but I was in no mood to spend every Christmas day in the company and at the home of people who don't actually like me much.
