Im interested to find out and hear how we'll all be spending Christmas away from home.

Where will you be?
What will be you doing?
Prefer to be alone?
Happy to be somewhere peaceful and quiet or will you seek out fun?
and last but not least.... How will Santa find you ???

I've spent one Christmas away from home - 99 Sydney, Australia - spent with friends chilling at botanic gardens overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge & Opera house - big picnic & lots of laughing.

This year I'll be in SEA - possibly Thailand - but my friend & I havent planned what we'll do ....

I'd like hear what you guys will be up to? .....;)

ill be in amsterdam... i wanted to go away, but im going to valencia with my sister from the 12th till the 17th and ill be pretty poor after that i think, so i dont think i can afford to go away! but its ok because i live in a shared house with some europeans i work with and theyre all going home for xmas/nye so i have the house to myself... which means that my friends who are travelling around europe, and also friends in amsterdam, will be at my house for xmas! it will be a little strange to have xmas without family, but ill have friends over! we'll do something nice n dutch :P ollieballen, pepernoten, poffertjes :P

I've spent a few Christmases away from home and I can't say I liked it. I made the best of it, but I'd prefer to be with my family, even if their crabby Making Christmas cookies isn't right unless I do it with my mom, sisters, and our family friends. Last Christmas my family was able to come visit me where I was and that was great to, but being separated is just odd for me. Guess it all depends on how you feel about it.
