Anyone else spending Christmas Eve alone?
Christmas Eve 2010 | Skooz

Posted on 12/24/2010 5:31:05 PM PST by Skooz

Just wondering if anyone else out there is spending the evening alone. Not necessarily a bad thing. I'm sipping a cappuccino and taking in "A Christmas Story" in the old man cave. I'll be with family tomorrow, but as of tonight, it's my faithful Boxer and me. And Ralphie.

I am by choice after a grueling work week including today.

Tomorrow I can stress out with all the family, tonight it’s the people I can’t be without, FR, and the a good winters’ nap.

Not alone. We just celebrated Christmes. All day tomorrow will be traveling. Christmas dinner will probably be a McDonald’s on the turnpike.

Merry Christmas y’all

I’m home alone right now; but I’m working a 12 hour shift tomorrow, so it’s just as well.

Hubby and I alone this holiday season. Very quiet but still nice except for the new puppy who insists on chewing on my laptop. Merry Christmas to you!

Sitting here drinking Shlenkerla Rauchbier with my orange cat and watching an old British war movie (’The Cruel Sea’). Sorta lonely, but I’ll get by.

Yep, just me and a really good bottle of 1999 Cabernet. It's a pause before the trip into town tomorrow AM and more family than I'd care to count.

So there I am, finished with the gifts, mailings gone out, presents wrapped and delivered to Grandma's House for the morrow, headed home for a long winter's nap. In casual conversation she sez, "Oh, the birdhouse fell apart yesterday," she sez, "I hope those poor birds don't spend a hungry Christmas." Yeah, right, Mom. I wuz done, DONE, mind you! And so there I wuz, Christmas Eve praying to get outta the Wal-Mart parking lot alive...

Yeah, I got her dang birdhouse. Her cat's gonna love me.

Merry Christmas, all!

I just got back from church, where there was free cookies.

I haven’t started my family yet, so it’s just me & the Lord this year too.

And to you, as well! Rauchbier is definitely an acquired taste, but once you get it- it’s really good.

This one has an aftertaste of...smoky ham, believe it or not.

Yep, seems like I’m working as much as possible to prep, pay bills, and take care of business. Purchased a radiation detector (CDV-715 Survey Meter) from www.ki4U.com today.

Crazy times we are living through! Great to have FR for company and information!

Thanks, Jim!

I wish I was alone. I am with family on my wifes orders. I’ve had the stomach flu for a few days..... So I am trying to keep my distance.

Alone and prepping the cornbread for the traditional cornbread dressing tomorrow, watching the 1970 film Scrooge, a favorite. My family used to have enormous Christmas eve open houses with 100-plus guests when I was a kid so I never try to equal those!

Sitting here drinking red wine from Argentina, with an orange kitten at my back, another on the floor, and about eight more at the door.
I have spent a number of Christmas eves and days alone, but now that I am in the Philippines, I have not had one night alone in two years ;)

Alone. But I have my little rituals. I just finished my pasta and anchovies in a garlic and olice oil base. Now it's time for my Christmas Eve music.

Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker (complete ballet, not the suite)
Rossini: Christmas Chant (a piano piece where he imitates the sound of shepherds' bagpipes)
Charpentier: Midnight Mass (a period instrument recording that places the piece firmly in the late Renaissance)

Being alone is not a bad thing.

You’re never really alone as long as you have your cats, and something decent to drink.

I’ve had the strangest thing happen lately. My 5-6 cardinal flock has turned to 30-40 over the last couple weeks.

It used to be just the male and his wife and one kid or so, now it’s a whole extended family, who bring 3-4 fledglings apiece. Out of nowhere a barrage drops out of the trees like rocks, it’s everybody rolling in for sunflower seed and a splash in the fountain.

One of the young guns has me trained: he attacks the window next to my laptop until I take more seed out.
