When I was working my full time job before I retired, I often worked on Christmas Day. So while we prefer to celebrate on Christmas Day we often did so on Christmas Eve if I had to work.

How about you?

Man do you work for PUGH?

When I was a kid in the 50's and 60's I recall we all opened one smaller gift or stocking stuffer on Christmas eve and then made the giant wrapping paper mountain of trash on Christmas day. The Christmas celebration started after Thanksgiving and went through New Year's Day.

Both...in-laws for Christmas Eve dinner and that side of the family, go home with the kids and they open MOST of their gifts. Christmas morning they each get one gift from "Santa" even though they're in college, then go to my wife's sister's house from brunch, early dinner at my parents' house (no gifts there except the "kids"...we're all adults and quit doing gifts years ago).

Debating on whether to take the dogs or leave them at home for these events.

Truth be known, I'd be just as happy to stay home and vegetate.

I'm on-call Christmas Day this year, so if we get a death call I may have to go to the office. Thankfully we have younger folks making the first calls and removals, but if there are arrangements I'll have to go in.

Fortunately, all of my wife's and my family live within a 50 mile radius. We'll be going to several different get-togethers from the 23rd until whenever.

Both - but it really seems to last about a week.

Close family, big family, in-laws, friends ... it all adds up!

I don't mind it one bit. Tiring? Yeah - a bit. But joyous.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

In Finland where i'm from generally the kids open their presents on the evening of the 24th, usually both the 24th and 25th are celebrated together with the whole family.

Here in Spain the "festive season" lastslonger since Spain also celebrates "Reyes Magos" ( Three Kings or Three Wise Men ) on January 6, after January 6 basically the festivities are over.

I didn't want a truthful answer - just Joking.

L.E. has its Pulpit, doesn't it? But many prps just keep following the same wrong crowd wrong path.

Since Mom had a Christmas ornament business and Pop had a 1/4 interest in the family farm which had converted from prunes/pears to Christmas trees, we "celebrated" every day it seems. That is Christmas was mostly work and rushing around ...

The actual family part was small on X-Mas eve and again on the morning ...
