BAH-HUM-BUG!

I'm such a party pooper lol. I wish I could get into the spirits on my own. Don't have anyone in the 3d world to celebrate with :(. I've tried SO freaking hard to make it fun and magical for my parents...but they just kept proving year after year that they could careless about making it fun or anything for me...so I finally stopped doing anything with them for the holidays a few years ago.

I use to love the magic of christmas. The music, the lights, the chilly weather. It was always my favorite time of year.
I just have no cheer anymore though :(. I don't really have friends to celebrate with.

Ah well. I guess according to my mom I'm an "adult" now and if I wanted christmas to mean anything I'd do it myself.

...also, I can't believe how fast this year has gone. I've never experienced a year that has gone by so quickly for me. It seems like summer was just a week ago. Halloween just a few days ago!

Several years ago there was no snow at all in my area during the month of December. That's really odd for here.
Then the coolest thing in the world happened...
It started to snow on the 24'th! haha I'm not kidding! No snow till Christmas Eve!!

How freaking cool would that be as a kid? How magical!

You can celebrate it here with us, if you want. :) Maybe I can think up some Christmas activities threads. :) So it can be kinda interactive. Like maybe decorating cookies and then posting pics of what we decorate?

I don't know. But I want Christmas to be fun for all. If there is anything you'd like to do, or a way to celebrate, please do share because maybe we can have a little Christmas fun afterall. :grouphug:

I would think it is so magical.

Last year, I went outside one night at 3am when it snowed, because I wanted to enjoy it, and I threw snowballs for Loua to run after.

And I made three little snowmen.

It was beautiful.

Does anyone else watch the Google Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve?

I've done it past couple Christmases, it is so cool because it shows Santa traveling all over the world, and it's cool waiting up for him to come bring presents to your place, but it also shows cool pictures of the places he is visiting and little fun facts about those places - like how they celebrate Christmas/the holidays in different parts of the world. (I think there are also little games you can play on the Google Santa Tracker website leading up to Christmas Eve)

It just brings the magic of Christmas to me. :) It's a little tradition I've started.

My daughter Ella who is 13 still believed in SANTA as of last year asked me very realistically about whether he was for real....it seriously broke my heart that she wanted so much to believe. I had to tell her the same made up tale about how Santa cant be everywhere and how parents take a sacred oath to keep it going-and that he mainly goes to places where children need care and love- like war torn countries and all that... I made it all up for the first two. In her deepest heart she is too smart to have totally bought the whole thing but not ready to give up her childhood. ***sigh** anyhow I used to dread the elf on the shelf because I had to remember to move that thing everywhere..but I dug it out and have decided to keep up the tradition because mom isnt ready to let her youngest give up the christmas magic yet.

So, I almost burned my house down and melted part of the elf on the shelf. Even though I had to break the Santa News to Ella last week, I decided I would keep christmas alive with the Elves. I placed him with his butt semi on top of a lamp and the lamp was on ALLLLLL day. Last night I said" I better move the elf before he catches on fire"...there was smoke under his butt! I melted a hole in his poor leg. Ill post a pic later.. DUH...I dont know what I was thinking!

Are we 13, or 14 days away from christmas? haha >.<'

To me, I'd say 14. the 25th is 14 days away from today. But according to google, and Bell's countdown (when she was able to do them)...I'm a day back and it should be 13 days till christmas.
So I'm confused haha

I'm going to say we're 13 days away based on how Bells started the count down.

What do you guys think?
lol I think I need to head to the store to buy myself a new brain.
Or...christmas is just 13 days away! :giggle:

Dear Santa,

Hello chubby round in the belly old man, it's me Psycho. I've tried real hard this year to be a good boy and would really really like a new brain for christmas please!

lol I don't know! I'm seriously confused on this haha. When I google search "How many days until christmas" I get a little quote that says 14 days, but then when I click on the link that goes with the quote...it tells me 13 days :doh:.
Thanks google! Way to clear things up for me! :lol:
But I checked several other countdown sites...and they all say 13 days and some odd hours too...so I'm just really dumb and don't get it lol. I should get this right? This shouldn't be something I should be confused over? :eyebrow:

Bell's last countdown post she personally made was posted on 11-29-16 and she said there was 25 days left till christmas...where if I were counting down, I would've said there was 26 days left.

So I think I'm going to stick with the way Bells was counting down and just stick with 13 days.

Also...do any of your guys go overboard on decorating?

Oh man I'm getting a bit nostalgic here thinking about it now. I remember bits of christmas past, and I always LOVED our trees! We always went and picked out our own real trees...I think we even went up to the mountains to cut one down once?
At any rate...they were always big and smelt great! It's still one of my favorite smells...the smell of pine trees. I can't personally think of a smell that more fully captures 'Christmas' to me.

And the ornaments and lights! My mom had several boxes full of ornaments of all shapes and sizes and materials. Bulbs and stars and plastic icicles. Red and blue and golden and silver. We also had lots of personalized ones with our names on them...some that both my grandmas had made for us, some my parents bought over the years. We'd make a whole evening of it...and we always listened to the same album while we did it...Christmas With The Chipmunks...
http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/6E0AAOSwZjJU8phW/s-l300.jpg
Oh man! haha...me and my sister LOVED that cassette! I wonder if my parents still have that old thing (image above isn't mine...just a pic I found on google).
My mom would go through the ornaments and get them organized...then me and my sister would put them up 1 by 1...my dad's job was putting the lights up around the tree, and then he'd put the angel on top of the tree as well once we were all finished.

We had such cool lights too! They blinked and danced with built in music!
(omgosh I found a youtube video!! lol):
<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6Q0N6mpHJvc" allowfullscreen="" width="280" height="158" frameborder="0"></iframe>

That was back when lights were always a pain. Just 1 bulb would be out, but it would cause the entire strand, or half the strand to all go out! lol

And my mom always put other deocations up around the house as well. Pictures hung up on the walls, she'd have our stockings all hung up on display, garland hanging from the ceiling...

It was just such a magical time. Oh how I miss that magic...that spark. Those innocent times.
I could sit there in my living room with all the lights off but the christmas tree lights and just watch them flickering on and off to the music they played all night long and be memorized by it all.

Could be ... could be.

A HUGE thanks to psycho for posting the Christmas countdown pics while I've been away :thankyou: and for all of the other cute pics he has posted :) and thank you to everyone contributing to this Christmas thread!

I know I started the thread but some unexpected things have come up and I've been needing to be away from the forums. I hope to contribute more soon though.

It has been snowing here. :) Today I woke up to a white blanket of snow covering everything and it is so beautiful. :) And snowing throughout the day. Actually it has snowed a few times in the past couple of weeks.

I think there is a real chance of it being a white Christmas here. I hope so, things have been pretty hard for me lately and I really need something to cheer me up.

I'm happy to help :) I was glad you reached out to me and asked if I wouldn't mind taking over for a bit...hehe though as you can see...me being the ADD slacker that I am...I have missed a day here, and a day there :lol:.

It's looking to be a white christmas here in my little snowflake in the 3d real life snow globe as well. I always liked having snow for christmas growing up, so I'm glad there's some snow right now for all the kids in town.

I'm real sorry about all the difficulties you're going through. How I wish I could help in some meaningful way :(.

We aren't observers, but my in laws are so we have Christmas Eve brunch. My small girl will love it :)

We did get her a present. A tricycle and helmet. We want her to get to be included in his family traditions in that way, but very minimally.

Both my oldest granddaughter, Kat, and I will be working on Christmas Day ...
no biggie, we both have other reasons for the season.

So the day after Christmas, my youngest granddaughter Nove, my daughter Jenn, and I are driving to Kansas City to hang out with Kat for the day.

Half a day left to Christmas, for those who are getting excited :grouphug:

Ebony and Tigger had their presents early so family could see their reaction (Tigger's finding some of the new toys fun and Ebony's like "riiiiight and exactly what am I supposed to do with these :scratch:" ) :grouphug:

Snuggled up with a French hot cocoa, wearing my excellent Santa hat, Christmas music playing, putting bows on gifts last minute. I just love Christmas. :)

Also I put a doggie Christmas scarf on Loua made specifically for dogs, I can't tell if she thinks it is a toy around her neck, it has a big fluffy ball on it. :D

I can take photos with my new-to-me android phone, but have no idea how to post them online.

My Max will not wear anything but his collar. Even when he's so cold he's shivering,
he will not wear a sweater. He just burrows under the fuzzy blanket on my bed.
I love photos of dogs wearing different things, just like playing dress-up. ;)

And Merry Christmas to you as well!

In my little dot of the globe here in Wyoming...it snowed this morning! I mean...how magical is that? It hasn't snowed in a couple of weeks now...and it waits till Christmas morning.
I just find that SO neat and would've found it amazing. Like proof that Santa and the magic of Christmas really does exist.

So I didn't celebrate this year again...but I wasn't sad or anything about that fact. It's more like christmas just didn't exist.

But I was talking to my group about christmas, about a week before...and darn it...I need to start celebrating christmas again. It's not that I don't like christmas...I honestly love christmas, love the lights and the cheer and the bright colorful decorations and the magic in the air...it's really a wonderful time of the year audibly and visually. Just taking a drive down town...christmas songs playing on the radio, all the stores and houses you pass lit up and decorated.

And I can be so full of cheer with an almost childlike joy when I have people to be so with (my ultimate dream is to be volunteering by christmas next year and will have some lovely elders to celebrate with).

No, I haven't lost my love for christmas. I've just lost people to celebrate it with. And so I stopped celebrating it in anyway.

But why? Why can't I still celebrate it? If I keep going on the way I'm going without celebrating it, I'll eventually through the years loose that sense of magic I still feel towards christmas and this time of year...and what a sad shame that would be :(.

So I realized this a bit too late this year...but it is a goal of mine to celebrate the holidays next year. Why should I deprive myself of all the celebrating and cheer?

lols...so we're a week into February now...and tonight I'm listening to a christmas album. Listening to it a second time through actually.

I can't decide if I should feel ashamed or something lol...I also have a christmas tree up that I put up a couple weeks after christmas :p.

I can't help that christmas songs and christmas trees and christmas decorations are so pretty and make me happy!
And I live alone...so it's not like I'm hurting anyone or anything.
