    Christmas is in two weeks or so. Are you looking forward to it?

    Like this song say, it is the best time of the year. My Grandpa's favorite old Christmas song!

    Yes! I love it, all the Christmas lights the family together, what more can one wants.

    Exactly right, exactly right!

    Although Jewish, I've always looked forward to Christmas. In general, people are happier and the gifts keep flowing. Also, our economy depends a great deal on Christmas acquisitions.

    The vast majority of people celebrating Christmas around the world are not Christians. It's a global cultural event.

    No. Never enjoyed Christmas, not religious, no children. Live on my own, awful old films or Christmas special editions of tiresome sitcoms on TV. Carols from round the world on the radio.
    Got a couple of DVDs to watch though, and some new CDs.

    For my wife and me, the nicest things are the Christmas songs by Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Karen Carpenter, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Andy Williams, etc. and the wonderful compositions of Leroy Anderson. All the commercialism we can do without.

    YES! It's my favourite time of the year. We've had the tree and decorations up since the weekend after Thanksgiving.

    This will be my first Christmas where the chances of it being white are 0% (well… maybe 0.001 %), because I moved to Florida a few months ago. So far I’m starting to conclude that white Christmases are vastly overrated. I drive around the town at night and see Christmas lights, decorations, trees everywhere, just like up north. And I don’t have to worry about whether I have enough of a supply of rock salt. The most wonderful time of the year indeed!

    My grandparents coming over from Manchester, my goodness, over 90 and still that active.
    Wonderful news.

    The daughter is now preparing the mulled wine, which we will enjoy while watching Alistair Sims playing Ebenezer Scrooge - in all its black-and-white splendor and totally void of any non-English subtitles.

    You'll want the whole day off tomorrow, I suppose.
