The few i seem to cling to could be easily left off and be soon forgotten. I hate to sound like Scrooge, but i'm glad each year when it's over. I tend to be more keen in spending time with my wife, kids, grandkids. At some point in each life, as you grow older and wiser then one will finally realize youve got more days behind you than you do in front of you, your needs and priorities dramatically change. There's my two cents.

Big Italian family get together on Xmas eve with tons of seafood, exchanging gifts, then on Xmas morning open presents and have a big intimate family breakfast then meet again later for a more casual dinner...yeah Italian Christmases involve a lot of food...
For the past 5 years we have never celebrated Xmas with my family. In 2007 we had planned a perfect trip for Xmas and on waking up in the morning of dec 25th my big bro had a car accident and died on the spot, ever since that day when you even wish anyone in my family a happy Xmas, you are inviting problem
I dressed as Santa and go around to my granchildrens homes at their parents behest. I just love getting "caught "putting presents out for the kids! And yet, they still don't know it's me. This is the happiest time of the year for me. And with the help of my staff, I'll hopefully be able to keep up my "run "so to speak. Poor health is casting some doubts though, its been a very bad year for me. But anyway, merry Christmas to all! ;)
Christmas eve we open one prezzie each, and I am the one since little that decorates the family tree, is my job, so I will go home this weekend and decorate the tree for dad, and the house too this year. On Christmas day we always open stocking first and then have a huge breaky.
