I live in a ski resort town and the 2 weeks of Christmas and New Year's is the busiest time of the year for us, so my traditional Christmas is working a lot serving all the tourist. Christmas day itself, I usually just chill, sleep in, not really do anything. I don't ski that day because there are WAY to many tourist up on the ski hill that day. I wait till after the 2 week holiday time to go back to skiing. With my Mother having passed away this last March and the rest of the family living EVERYWHERE else from Hawaii to Tennessee, the family thing ain't happening.

Like Cottonwood, normally I am working during Christmas, in a different field but working still so this year is unusual for me since I have both 24th and 25th off from work..Haven't have in years..
So I am not sure what my plans are..I always make quick visit to my parent-in-laws and visit my mom on 24th, this year is not any different on that account but it's odd that I could stay over the night if I want to. Or I could go on 23th and spend the night..World is full of possibilities it seems

I've cancelled Christmas this year, it's all too expensive with the added inconvenience of essential shops being closed over the boring three day event, so now that a Covid vaccine is about to be rolled out in the UK I'm saving my pennies and looking up Easyjet flights to Spain and Morocco next summer, I can't wait to get back to the guaranteed Maghreb heat and escape from snow-bound Scotland, the way to go, I think......

Yesterday evening in Italy was just released a new CoViD-19 related ordinance, made specifically for the end of this year and valid on all the national territory, which forbids movement between regions between the 21st of December and 6th of January while for the night of the new year's eve is forbidden to go out of the house between the hours 22:00 and 07:00, while for the days of 25th, 26th and 1st is forbidden to even move outside of the area of own municipality : )))) So for who stays in Italy during this time frame the only plans that are possible are quite self-explanatory ; )

Nice to read about everyone's plans for Christmas. It's not a time of the year I particularly enjoy anymore. So, this year I dont need to go anywhere, as everyone I know is being cautious about the virus. I'll treat myself to a nice dinner and potter the day away. :)

Did the hard yards with a severe lockdown here and are now reaping the benefits. Apart from the lack of international travel, things are feeling very normal in Melbourne at the moment. We'll be having our usual family Christmas gathering at my in-laws house as a result.

This weekend we're also heading into the city to stay there for a few days. Should be a nice change of surrounds without having to hop on a plane. Also, gives us a chance to finish off the Christmas shopping.
