Merry Christmas to you all.
But what about those amongst us that don't celebrate christmas, such as misers.
Sigh, I really should have put a smiley on, I diddn't think anyone would take it seriously.

Same for me, Larry. The only difference is Thanksgiving, likely my favorite holiday, thanks to the great food. Can't stand Christmas.
Best to all, where ever and whatever your beliefs. Gerry :-)} London, Canada
Seasons Greetings to all, and no disrespect to Ian or Larry, but Scrooge this year is my employer, hands down. Why you ask? Well, Tuesday morning we were told that he was planning on buying us lunch Wed. (Subway, but it's better than nothing). An hour before quitting time he comes threw the shop to tell us all that we would now be off until the 5th of January, starting now. "I have to do what I have to do", he says. Well, that makes two of us, seems like the shop up the road a piece was looking for help last week. hhmmmm. Oh yeah, we can come by Wednesday between 11:00-12:30 to get our checks. I got there at 11:15, banks closed at 12:00, finally got our checks at 3:30 and he can't figure out why FedEx was so late today? DUH!! It's freaking Christmas Eve!!
Sorry if I bummed you guys out, just needed to vent, Jim
For you, we have some discount celebrations over here in the Holiday Salvage Yard, from various religions that have gone bankrupt or out of style. Most involve the abuse of animals or relatives.
For the rest, Merry Christmas!
May your tools never rust The magic smoke always stay hidden deep inside your electric motors And all those you care about return to show you how lucky and wealthy you really are Merry Christmas to one and all
Though I suspect a lot here will be hitting various places for post-christmas salvage...
I used to hate, HATE Christmas. Now that I'm on meds for depression, it's not so bad ;-)
I still hate the excess of it! There's so much buy-buy-buy. I was in BJ's the day after _Labor Day_ and they had Christmas decorations for sale! Oops, I feel a rant coming on, better quit.
I agree about Thanksgiving, too. It's just about getting the family together for a nice meal. Christmas could be like that if the gift thing was toned _way_ down.
Nevertheless, Season's Greetings to a great bunch of NG'ers. And thanks for all the great help over the year.
You don't like cookies???
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Paul in AJ AZ
All the best from the lightly snow covered, almost frozen north country. Gerry :-)} London, Canada
Speak for yourself- just above freezing and no snow at all on the ground here close to the lake.
Seasons greetings & all the best!
Best regards, Spehro Pefhany
Just got done shovelling about 6" (Midland, MI). I called the folks at home. It's 70 deg F in coastal Texas. I'm homesick. Tomorrow, I'm going to fire up the grill for fajitas & margaritas. Gotta go make the marinade.
Wish we were there.
