Quoting Q'

We'll be in Texas with my mom and sister's family. Mom's going down there to spend the winter and we're bringing her. So anyone know what's there to do in Texas over Christmas anyways ?

Make a quick jaunt over to Dallas and say hi to George Dubya from his Canuckistani friends? (Unless he's holidaying it at the ranch in Crawford.) Just a thought. Never been to Texas but I hear there are lots of wide open spaces, women with aluminum dimples and cotton candy hair, and rodeos. I like rodeos.

(I really do like rodeos.)

We'll be heading down to Hamilton for lunch then back up to Auckland later on to catch up with friends. As I say every year, it still feels strange having a warm Christmas.

I second that! It was sleeting yesterday and had snow flurries this morning. It's a "balmy" (and windy) 23F out there at the moment. :(

I've been au pairing for the past 2 months in Ireland, and am now in Scotland being an au pair with a different family who i was originally going to spend christmas with as well. But i've found out that they're going to be off work and free to look after the kids so i get to hop on a train to where all my english relatives are celebrating christmas in Barnard Castle area!!! it'll be the first time i've ever had christmas with them... christmas is usually in Canada with my parents and sisters... it'll strange not to have my dad around for christmas, but my sister and her family are flying over for christmas which will be tones of fun!

thanks for asking the question what are all doing for christmas, it's cool to know what other's plans are!

I will be in Cuenca in Ecudaor for both Christmas and New Years. I have no idea what the tradition there is for Christmas, but I am staying with a friend so I guess I will find out! I am sure it wont be bbq and the beach this year....but at least it will still be warm!!
