Merry Christmas, all of my Silicon-based friends!
Posted by: sekker

Posting a little early, as I'm about to be very busy with my Carbon-based family shortly.

I know Christmas is formally a Christian holiday, but I'm formally a Pagan (and married to a Catholic religious ed teacher). I loved seeing the stories of the Festival of Lights in India. So whatever take you have on holiday, just be sure to take time out to celebrate!

Just want to wish everyone a terrific break and fun time with family and friends (and, for some, football).

I'm spending this year with my wife and children, and my oldest sister is flying in tomorrow. We will be doing a techie break getting my Big Sis setup with her main toys as she's retiring soon and will be 100% running her small business that's been on the Internet for over 15 years.

Christmas tree is decorated, lights are up (inside and out), first batches of Chex Mix are made, cookie dough is ready (and recently sampled!) for that fresh-out-of-the-oven experience on-demand, turkey and all of the ingredients for Christmas dinner are in the house, and my wife is sleeping in (perhaps the last day in awhile knowing how she behaves over break).

We even have just a LITTLE snow from yesterday to make it feel 'Christmassy' outside.

Have a toast on us!

I'm about to get real busy with dinner prep, so I will not be the caring and supporting lurker I usually am.
I take the opportunity this thread brings to wish everybody a Merry Christmas, Chanukah or any other festivity I am not aware (including my dad's BD - yay 85!!)
May you spend a peaceful time with the people you love, in the best circumstances available to you all.

Coming up to 6.30 pm over here. Sarah, the two girls and their partners are down on the village green for the annual carol singing. My job is always to stay behind and get the mulled wine, festive bites and mince pies ready for their return. That mulled wine takes a lot of testing until I'm sure it's right and NO I never use ready made stuff.

Have a great time all of you.

Paul
