It's not too early to start a Christmas thread - it's not quite there yet but it's not very far either: soon it will be October. I suppose starting an ONLY Christmas Thread will relieve a lot of SPAM too by keeping things clean.

- Christmas Plans
- New Years Resolution
- Review of this year
- Review of next year
- Gifts
- What Christmas means to you
- etc etc

Well, I'll start off by saying that this Year's Chrismas was faster approaching the last. I mentioned before that time has really flown by, maybe not for some but for me it almost definitely has. I can't wait till Christmas. It's the best time of the year where mostly everyone gets to spend some time with their family and friends. Of course that's not really the purpose of Christmas but over time it has become the idea.
For me, I'm not deeply religious but I do believe in God. Christmas for me means nothing more than good, quality family time. My family never really spends as much together as we should. My parents are here in the House a maximum of 3 hours a day not including sleeping time. We own a restaurant y'see and so it's hard labour with hardly any spare time at all. I count that Christmas time is the only time my parents have a 4-day break. It might not sound much but it's more that I can ask of them.

To top it off, it's also going to the first anniversary of my Grandmother's death very soon. Some of you already know, by a thread I started last year, that my grandmother died on December 10th 2006 @ about 19:00 hours. That's also a very special occassion. My grandfather has also just arrived in the UK today at 05:30. He should also be here during Christmas so that's going to be very special but it's also going to be hard without my Grandmother by his side.
This year, if I get the job that i've applied for, i'll be able to afford a little present for myself. I'm hoping to buy a Gretsch Chet Atkins model. I may even have enough money to buy a new amplifier too, who knows. Speaking of gifts etc, I also really want a Christmas Tree. I've never had one in my life and i've been here for 19 years. I'd like to get one just for novelty value. This year, I also want to get a real Turkey for dinner. I've never had Turkey before either - maybe ham slices but not the real thing. That should be interesting to prepare.

Speaking of the positive attributes of Christmas, we mustn't forget about the lows too. For every positive remark I make, there is always going to be another, death, another assualt, another homeless person, etc, so don't forget to stay safe. This year has been bad enough as it is - I count many unfortunate events from aeroplane crashes, natural disasters, stabbings in the UK, rising gun crime [UK] and missing persons. Hopefully next year will be easier on us all. By next year Christmas, I hope to be a lot more efficient with my Uni work and to better my grades by a mile.

Discuss

EDIT: I look forward to seeing the new UG Christmas wallpaper in January.

Oh come on. It's not so absurd! Supermarkets are already stocking up for Christmas, there are tons of christmas adverts and there are Christmas movies on Sky

And it's September 18th, not October <_<

Man, the shops have Christmas stuff in before Summer these days. Crazy.

Anyway, this Xmas will undoubtedly be spent with family getting incredibly fat as usual!

Incidentally, I've got one of my Xmas presents already... my parents gave me £100 towards my Dean Razorback V

- yes it is. over 3 months. that's a whole 1/4 of a year plus a bit more.

- no it won't. in December, knowing the general ignorance of people on here, every day there will be a thread saying "i'm sorry if this has been done before, but what's everyone doing for Christmas??!!!"

Don't watch any christmas movies, they're all too mushy.

Plus it'll make you want christmas even more.

Like I do now.

Yeah, the Christmas season (in the U.S. anyways) starts on Thanksgiving, which is November 22 this year.

I am excited for Christmas already though. I have been planning what I want and I'm thinking about drawing pictures for people as gifts because I'm poor.

A Christmas Story is my favorite Christmas movie, to whoever asked about movies.

- What Christmas means to you


-Try and do stuff over Christmas Break, with friends mostly. Try and have a good Christmas.

-My only REAL resolution is to write a good deal of material, and to get a girlfriend, if I don't have one by then.

-This year? Meh. Better than last year.

-I hope to only improve on this year.

-Gifts? All I want is this:


And maybe a decent bag for it. Mostly just the D40. That's it.

-What does Christmas mean to me? It means spending time with family and friends, and hopefully having a nice break.

Since I'm not Christian (by any means), I don't do anything/celebrate anything that has to do with Christianity. I'm not saying that in an offensive way toward Christians, I just have no reason to celebrate something I don't believe in.

Get the D70 instead, you won't regret choosing it over the D40.
