2018 Christmas Thread

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd start an "official" thread for our Christmas discussions.

 

What does everyone hope to get?

 

What will everyone realistically get?

 

What are you getting the kids/partner/family etc?

 

Started/finished the shopping or leave it til Xmas Eve?

 

Do you enjoy, tolerate, hate or loathe Christmas?

 

Getting/taking time off? Headed away? Locking yourself at home with the blinds down?

Laid.

Laid and probably a couple of pairs of jocks.

Toys for the kids. I bought them a slightly bigger trampoline with safety netting so they don't send their 2yo sister flying over the fence. The missus can buy whatever she wants for herself. I usually sent the father in law a nice bottle of spirits or port but I guess I'll keep it for myself this year.

Mostly done.

It's good. Happy times for all.

Haha unlikely. Might go catch a carp and feed it to a pelican. You best believe the blinds will be down and the aircon cranked if it is anything like today.

No one's forcing you to participate ya grumpy carnt and don't tell me you wouldn't like a box of gym chalk or a new cod piece turn up in the mail with a xmas card!

 

Edit: maybe searching ebay for a jock strap was not the best idea. :ermm:

The naughty girl list.

 

What will everyone realistically get?

 

Bunning's gift cards....which I'll definitely be using now that I have to do "maintenance" on my place.

 

What are you getting the kids/partner/family etc?

 

I've bought rechargeable walkie talkies for the niece and nephews, fishing tackle for dad and a 40" 4K TV for mum.

 

Started/finished the shopping or leave it til Xmas Eve?

 

I buy in November so I just do my usual food shopping in December.

 

Do you enjoy, tolerate, hate or loathe Christmas?

 

I prefer giving presents than getting them, like my birthday, it's just another day for me, except I get the day off.

 

Getting/taking time off? Headed away? Locking yourself at home with the blinds down?

 

Nope, hit over 40 days leave and trying to keep it quiet, I intend to use it for four day long weekend trips with the old man, I'm trying to get him out of the house, so thinking of doing a gold prospecting tour, some fishing trips etc.

haha that is not a likely outcome.

Not if ya keep putting it in the pooper.

:pandalol:

 

Definitely like Christmas, my partners parents are heading down for a holiday and to spend Christmas with us.

 

Love Christmas day feeds, the presents thing is okay.

Got 3 weeks off over Christmas as well, so I always look forward to that every year. Gonna spend alot days swimming either at my mums swimming pool or down the local beaches.

I am so happy im single this year. I always got something nice in return but the pressure to find my ex something nice was too intense....she was too materialistic.

 

Overall I am not religious and I see it as a day to relax with family & friends.

Decided to get hams for the folks and the older kids (with families) - was going to do them myself, but not enough time left to cure them so getting them from my butcher :(

 

Spa day for my sister

 

Son wants JBHiFi vouchers (will add in some socks and jocks)

 

Probably getting socks and jocks myself and maybe some bedding or towels.

 

Not really taking holidays as such, but the work usually stops at xmas and doesn't really pick up again til mid Jan, so can get away for a while.

Usually spend the time to organise the house/office/yard etc, brew some beer, make some snags (want to do some salami's etc this year)
