    I would go to Maui this Christmas - but I haven't planned ahead enough, so I'll have to wait.  I think Christmas anywhere in Hawaii must be incredibly special.

    I'd love to go to Sun Valley for Christmas, but most likely we will stay home and maybe drive to Seattle or Lake Tahoe.

    Northern Michigan.
    It's the only place I have ever been on Christmas day, and I can't imagine Christmas day anyplace else.

    As long as I have family up there, that's where I'll be smile

      You're really scareing me now, we go to Santa Fe quite often and my wife loves the Blue Corn Cafe! If we're not there to ski I'm bag toteing.

        I have never been, because Matt says he would like to go there with me (it is his favorite place)...only trouble is, he has a horrible time getting away so we can go!

        I'll ask him about the Blue Corn Cafe, smile.

      Going to see my dad's & my daughter's. I usually wait 'til I'm leaving town. If I do that first, then I spend the rest of the holiday on the verge of tears.

      I'm hoping northern MI will get a ton of snow for XMas. Last year it was so heavy that my room was the only one occupied at the motel. Everybody else cancelled. The snow was to deep to drive in.

      Unless, like me, you were very very stubborn.

      I hope they're still working on the time machine - I'd go with you, your parents sound like they were really special.  Maybe they would adopt me.  I need some good parenting-one never gets too old for it.

    Our whole family gets together every other Christmas, last Christmas was wintery weather in Williamsburg, this Christmas will be in "hopefully sunny" Hilton Head.  We take a group of condos, the family nucli come in from all over the world.  We share condos and decorate the main condo with marked down decorations (everyone throws in $5 and we go full out with lights, a tree, a wreath, everything - then we pass it on to the clean up crew to add to their personal collection for next year.  We have a great time together and no one person is overburdened.  Lots to do and see and still have family around - everyone stays entertained and no one is cramped.

    I'd like to go somewhere where there is no Christmas hype, no endless CDs of kitschy Christmas music in every shop, no trashy decorations, where those who wish to celebrate it as a religious festival are free to do so, and those who don't are left in peace. If this non-existent place happened to be warm and sunny as well, it would be sheer paradise.

      I agree with you. I can't abide the manipulation and moneymaking aspect of it all.

      Strangely enough, Christmas Island might be just the place. According to Wikipedia it has a population of about 1'500 (can't be many department stores there), and it is 85% Buddhist / Islamic.
      Bound to be less hype than most places, wouldn't you say?

    I am going to India for the Christmas break.  I need a vacation after this semester in school.  It's been very stressful and I feel that the break will help me to recharge my brain so that I can come back next semester with a more relaxed outlook.  I think it will be good for me.  I have a lot of family and relatives there.

    In India, I will be in a few places.  First, I will be flying into Hyderabad, a major city in south India in the state of Andhra Pradesh.  I will also be visiting Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) in Madhya Pradesh, and Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta) in West Bengal. 

    I will more than likely be taking a lot of pictures when I go there, so stay tuned to my page to see some of them!  Have a wonderful, safe and prosperous Holiday Season, and may all your dreams come true!

    I flew into Delhi once not realising it was Diwali. Brilliant! We were even met with marigold garlands as we left the plane.

    I also attended a wonderful Diwali in the grounds of Nottingham Castle one year. There were puppet shows, a play, banghra music, superb food, all ending with a huge bonfire and fireworks.

    If Christmas was even just half as much fun as that, I'd be more enthusiastic about it.

    I'm exactly where I want to be for Christmas... home with my daughters and my grandson. We have three beautiful trees all decorated with ornaments collected over the years. There is the big tree in the main living room with an obscene number of packages under it, a smaller one in the hallway foyer, and a living Norfolk Island Pine potted tree in the sunroom.

    I never, ever forget how very blessed we are, so after we open our presents, we will be off to the Catholic Charities to help serve holiday meals.

    There is no place else I'd rather be and no one else I'd rather be with this Christmas... Merry Christmas!

    in Asian and African slums and streets where Christmas comes as a cruel irony of life. I would serve some food to the hungry, sick, deprived children and say, "sorry, I don't don't have much." Throughout the years I having been doing this in any big occasion in my country.
