    So far so good. We still have to do the family one with my parents and brothers. that's next weekend.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Pretty good. Had fun, but a couple of my babies were sick. & one of them was @ their other grandparents' house.

    I chose "OK", because my parents are Catholic and I (with my brother, who's anti-theist) "celebrate" Christmas with them only... and it's always funny. :P

    Firmly in the 'not bad' category, which is a blessing considering practically every other Christmas is in the 'not too good' category.

    At first it really sucked because all my plans with family fell through and ended up spending Christmas by myself at home. And usually I prefer to be alone but idk, just scrolling through Facebook and looking at everyone's family posts with their gatherings and whatnot just got to me since my family used to do bigger gatherings when I was a kid. But my bf skype-called me for a couple hours and I was fine after that . I ended up gathering with my mom and aunt for a play at the Fox theater later on that weekend so it all worked out I guess.

    Mine was lovely. It was almost ruined on christmas eve, my previous employer causing me jip with my final payout, making me stress and have to demand having it looked over, it's my notice money aswell and they can't even do that right.

    Then just chilled here in Manchester on the day, visited my family yesterday. I have so much chocolate!

    I got an amiibo off my brother and a cute zelda purse - my personal highlights. Ive just ordered FFXIV too on PS4

    My sole gift was a giant stocking full of candy and prepaid debit cards.

    It was great.

    I spent Christmas with my family. It's one of those things where I could do without it but needed to do it. Don't get me wrong, in my own way I do love my family and care for them. I also find them irritating and annoying and being forced to spend several days with them is something I would avoid at any cost. It's also a reminder for me that I'm very much taken for granted by them.

    I could have a rant about how my family never seem to think about my presents or spend even a fraction of what I spent on them for me (seriously, I buy presents for 5 kids, My sister and my Mother and usually my sisters partner too somewhere in the region of 150+ all told) and in return they as a combined group buy me one gift (fiscially I'd say they set a group limit of 5 based on the gifts received, maybe 10 at a push) and it's never what I'd actually like, they'd be better off putting say 10 - 15 quid on an Amazon voucher which I may actually find a use for. My sole present from family this year was some Baylis and Harding Shower Gel and Body Wash (I had no idea this was even two separate commodities, so I guess it was educational at least). But I'm trying to avoid that rant because it gets messy with how it delves in to the psychology of my family and how things work in it. That and people tend to tell me it's ungrateful to not be happy they got me something (Which I am happy they got me something, and doubly happy it didn't turn out to be a 1 cheap biro what had my name on it per the gift of 2014... seriously).

    Christmas dinner was the usual fare, my Mother still over boils the veg to bland mush. One of these days I'm going to have to teach my mother how to actually cook vegetables in a flavoursome way.
