I've come to deeply enjoy Christmas in Kansas, in part because of the snow. we had none this year, but I love it when it happens; unless it is like the "Christmas blizzard!"

where I grew up, the most we ever had of cold weather was like this: you had to break the ice on top of the critters' water troughs a few times in the winter.
at the time we had the Christmas Blizzard, the place where I grew up on the central california coast actually experienced an inch of snow. I think it lasted about as long as it takes to read a paragraph! of course there were accidents; nobody there knows how to drive in the snow! some professed they were "shocked."

I sincerely hope this one serves to warn against "drunken Christmas stunts!"

Bless you Bearded Gnome! Best part? Reminding the kids that they weren't all so good this year, hence the coal in their stockings, and then filming the looks on their faces when we opened the garage door to reveal 4 new bicycles. Priceless! Family IS the most important part of Christmas. Thank you for reminding us all. I hope your holidays continue to be wonderful.

Taking my two oldest boys to their first NFL game... and having them for Xmas for the first time in 6 years (special thanks to my lawyer for making that happen).

I am late to your party gnome. But, better late than never. Merry Christmas, God Bless, and 73s. Send 88's to your better half for me.

What a lovely blog post... my best gift, despite having been blessed with material presents, was actually a good meal with both sides of the family. No one got angry or cried, or was annoyed at the others. That is the holiday spirit, no matter how/what one celebrates.

Best wishes to you and your loved ones. A Merry Christmas to you seems to be appropriate for you, happy holidays works for me. A day without the animosity of which one is "proper" is also a great experience.

I was hoping someone had started a Christmas blog, thank you gnome. Got up and made a big batch of biscuits and gravy, we'll see how the rest of the day goes. Best present still to come in March. Merry Christmas to all the bloggers who do appreciate the lighter side of blogging on this site, and to Multi also. Best presents today will be phone calls from loved ones afar. My Christmas wish is good health in the coming year for everyone. Hang in there everyone.

Merry Christmas gnome (one of the good guys and gals of this forum)!
My best gift? Life! And the ability to spend the day with my wonderful husband and family.

Have a blessed day, gnome, hope your wife recovers fully!

No gifts for me, this Christmas—by design. (oh, something obligatory from a coworker and something awaiting me afar, I'm told) More of a late Thanksgiving, and a New Year's Halfortnight.

My favorite gift still shines as brightly as she did the day I married her. Merry Christmas, b_g! Same goes for the rest of you, too. The cinnamon rolls are ready, so...g'bye.

Every stab of pain that wakes me while simultaneously pitching me from bed reminds me I have been blessed with another day on this planet. Looking forward to a day with the extended family, too much food, and laughing at and with the grandchild. Merry Christma, Gnome!

Oh, Me?

well, I already know my answer: I am indeed still alive. it got pretty close earlier this year, my time wasn't up, but we were down to milliseconds.

I will also get to see my wife, who is out of town recovering in a hospital.

God bless us, every one.
