I prefer to spend the money on presents for other people, (that they really don't want), on presents for me....at least that way I know I'll get something I like/want1.  ;D

(My wife and I opted out of the over commercialised Christmas time and Easter.....I'd also opt out of birthdays if I could....damn families  >:( )

So yes, I can say we're as prepared as always - take drink, nibbles, turn up for dinner.



1. Even if I have to sneak it into the house past the missus.

"Always ready - but seldom prepared!" has been my Holiday Season motto since forever. :Thmbsup:

I think we DC'ers need to invent our own holiday tradition and that revolves around Cody.
It probably needs to involve hiding gold covered chocolate coins around the house.

Never ready, but for a reason -- only because I don't "do" xmas. I celebrate Festivus, but then that's not so much celebration as rasslin. Can't stand my family, so I haven't seen them for almost ten years and the last time was a blowout argument. Life's too short to suffer abusive fools, so I'm glad to be relieved of not driving 575 miles to visit. As for presents, if I want it, I save up and buy it.

It's not as depressing as it sounds!  ;D  I'm just not a people person anymore.

Cranioscopical, shame on you!!
You guys don't know to create a new holiday tradition do you?

Let me start describing the new DC'er holiday of Codystmus:

  • Starting on December 15 of each year, create a special place in your house for the Codystmus offering plate.
  • Place some representation of Cody the bird on the plate -- either have a child in your house draw a picture of Cody or make a clay model of him, etc.
  • On that plate, on each day from December 15 to December 25, each member of your household will place one piece of candy, preferably chocolate, on the plate (when no one else is around to see), and take one for themselves that someone else has left.
  • This symbolizes the mysterious offerings of candy to Cody the bird, which appear and dissapear while no one is looking, and the idea of random exchanges of small gifts between people based on trust and non-greediness.
  • On the last day, December 25.. well i'm not sure what should happen then..

ps. I know the name sucks, if anyone can think of a better one it would be appreciated.
