    I echo those sentiments Snowbell. Not sure what this year will bring. My outside changed every years and this one will be a special Christmas wreath show. But as far as the day itself? Too early to call...

The television usually stays off, but we've been known to pop in a Christmas movie or watch a sporting event. I have munchies and drinks throughout the day, then a huge Christmas dinner. I also have this weird preoccupation with setting my Christmas dinner table(s) differently each year (one year Santa themed, one year woodsy themed, one year modern etc) This has been a tradition for several years, and a lot of people prefer spending the day here, because they don't have to deal with family drama.
    I would love to see your table settings- do you take pictures every year?
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    I've got a few new touches in mind, but nothing concrete just yet...

    I don't always take pictures, but here are a few. They aren't the greatest quality pictures, but you get the idea.

    Very nice. I have not taken any of my table in the past (don't ask why, cuz' I do not know) But I will try to remember in the future.

    Thank you.
    I think we forget to take them, because we have so much going on. Even when I remember, I don't really take a lot of time and just snap a quick shot.

    Not 100% certain what we willo do on this Christmas day, but I am letting the wheels turn and hope to come up with something unique for this very unique Christmas.

    Nice! I wouldn't have thought to use black, but it really makes the red pop. Thanks for posting!

    I haven't done one for a few years because we've been going to my sister's, but if I find one of my past ones, I'll post it.
