It's going to be Christmas here in UK in about an hour so I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
Hope you all have a fabulous one..enjoy!
Thank you, Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Thank you and Merry Christmas to you. We only have about six hours to go here in North America.
Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas, and however else you say it in other languages!!!
We have about 13 hours til 6 am, when I assume a little person will shake me out of my sleep. Merry Christmas!
And were you rudely awakened as I was?
Merry Christmas, Beth.
Lol... no. I don't know if Christmas elves had anything to do with it, but somehow she went downstairs and watched tv without waking anyone. I think it's cause she knew we weren't opening presents until her older siblings got here so she probably decided it wasn't worth her time to wake anyone.
Either way, I still got up before 6:30... stupid inner alarm clock. I have been enjoying such activities as Christmas vacuuming, Christmas taking out the garbage and Christmas cleaning the bathroom. I'm ready to go now though. My oldest son went to AL with his new wife to see her family and we're waiting for their arrival. My oldest daughter has a 14 page term paper to write and today is her only day off. We don't know if we'll even see her. Poor thing.
Life is full of such struggles. Some small, some great. I guess I have a great one ahead of me, but for today... with all my kids well and their little bellies full. Life is good. I think of one of my favorite Christmas verses... hopefully you'll allow me to contemplate for a moment... "Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!"
Merry Christmas Wilderness and to all!
Christmas Day in Australia is well underway. Nearly midday here. Best wishes to everyone.
I have just heard about a bakery that is opening its doors to feed homeless and disadvantaged people free Christmas lunch. I think that's great and will certainly buy something from them next time I am in that town. Good business people deserve support.
If you have homeless folk near your home, I hope you'll take some leftovers from your Christmas feast and make a delivery.
When I lived in the city I used to wrap gifts for children (often just toys in good condition that my kids had outgrown) and randomly hand them out to children I passed when driving by. The kids didn't have to be obviously homeless but if I spotted their families on foot on Christmas day in an area other than a beach, I'd just park my car and wander up and give them a brightly wrapped present.
Living off the grid away from the city denies me that fun. For anyone living in a city, please take a few small gifts in your car as you drive around to your friends and family ... just in case you spot a young one who looks like they'd love a small gift from a secret Santa!
You are amazing!
I wish I'd thought of doing that instead of just handing used, but good toys, into charities.
All kids love receiving gifts, and love being given toys, regardless of whether they are new or not. Taking the wrapping off is probably the best fun of all.
Most kids don't fall into the the bracket of being on a registered charity's list, but many need and appreciate such a gift from a stranger.
What a great idea!
Guess I should have written a hub about it a month ago to get hubbers inspired, IzzyM. Bit late now I guess, but I hope at least a few might take up the idea. My kids and I would recycle the wrapping paper from under the tree (they got in the habit of unwrapping but not scrunching the paper) and then race into their bedrooms to look for toys they didn't need anymore. Of course that process is much easier when there's new presents to find room for on the shelf. lol.
Some parents were grateful, some seemed a little wary, but the kids were always excited and the parents would wave once the kids had opened the present and seen it was something nice.
Merry Christmas, everyone! It's 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve here in Texas. May your holidays be merry and bright.
Merry Christmas to all our hubbers and those just visiting.
Christmas day has arrived and we get to stop in bed, no kids here to wake us at 05:00am. Our kids have their own kids now.
Have a wonderful day and just think for a minute of those that can't.
Merry Christmas to HubberLand. May you all enjoy the day as much as I will.
Merry Christmas to all. It is better to give than to receive. My daughter used to make sandwiches for the homeless. We gave money to homeless shelter. Many homeless people have mental illness while some just are down on their luck. Good luck to all hubbers and have a great day.

We are having Christmas at my daughters home this year so I'm all packed up and won't be back for a few days. (Chances are slim that I even get the laptop hooked-up... there are just going to be too many games that I...

Just curious why you can't say Merry Christmas anymore? I have never got upset when someone said Happy Hanukkah. The way I see it, someone is just wishing good times based on whatever their background is. I think it's...
