Merry Christmas and happy new years everyone! Tis the season to party and shop till you drop. Over and out.
Merry Christmas and a large dollop of non-offensive seasonal greetings to Sunny and all at PP. Happy Hannukah to all the right-on Jews (like me) who pop by. :tee-hee:
Here’s to a peaceful and prosperous 2006.
Only kidding. Season’s greetings to all.
Happy days ( A La the Fonz) to you too. Bah humbug!
D’oh! It was Hannukah and Christmas on the same day right, since 1957? Happy Hannukah Steve
Thank you. And this year I celebrated Chanukkah (always nice to have an abundance of spelling options) by attending a Midnight Mass at a genuine monastry near my wife’s family in Germany (well I wanted the experience). ‘Atmosphere’ there was – ‘happy-clappy’ there was not. Never have I witnessed such a joyless, miserable bunch of people apparently celebrating the birth of Christ. Incredible!
Next year we’ll go to a gospel service in the Southern United States – unless there’s anything people could recommend in the Hindu, Sikh or Islamic line.
Oh, and how did those communion wafers taste? Don’t ask.
Oh well, back to the Church of Soccer today.
Christmas is so commercialised. So we spent it remembering the birth of someone very special. We celebrated the TRUE meaning of Christmas, which is of course the birthday of Santa Claus.
I like the pick n mix religion-hopping Steve, sounds good!
Hope everyone had a nice day.
Merry Christmas & new year’s greetings to you too Sunny.
Rohin – you make Christmas what it is. Yesterday, my extended family here in LA had a massive family day celebration… everyone got together in the afternoon… watched the Lakers game, then everyone opened the presents… then milled about the chatted while the food was being set up. Then had a massive dinner (for 30 people!) and then we sat around and played games.
Christmas is a perfect Asian holiday because its all about having a massive family get-together and making tons of food and eating it together. Even my family in the UK do the same (except they don’t do the full turkey palava, sticking to chicken usually).
*holds bloated belly contendedly*
I think I might become a Lakers fan :S
Sunny, I’m only kidding! I didn’t really celebrate the birth of Santa!
Yup, despite all my bah humbugging I actually love Crimbo Day. I hate the run up and the shopping, but come the 25th, we have a proper big turkey meal, five hundred courses and obscene amounts of booze. I got through a crate of Cobra before I even started on the gin and whiskey. Ah, Jesus would be proud of me.
Family came over, nice pressies, stayed in pyjamas…it was all good.
Lakers eh? Bit of a showbiz fan are you – they’re the team with almost as many celeb fans as the Knicks. But don’t you find American sports far more boring than British ones? B-ball sends me to snoozeville.
Merry christmas everyone, and a happy new year to all.
Happy New Year to you Sunny!
