December 25: What’s Your Plan?

What’s your plan for December 25?

Some things I have heard people planning this year:

  1. Trading with co-workers – working on Dec 25, then being able to get time off at Passover or at the High Holy Days.
  2. The American Classic: Chinese food and a movie. (Which movie?)
  3. Family party – hey, everyone’s off! Let’s get together!
  4. Family reunion – It’s going to be a long weekend! Let’s get together!
  5. Quietly hiding out.
  6. The Adar-Burnett Classic: Thai food and a movie
  7. All day Netflix binge (which show?)
  8. Cleaning out closets
  9. Gathering with Christian family members for Christmas dinner.
  10. Nothing much – how delicious is that?

What’s your plan for December 25? Is there anything about the day you find particularly wonderful or particularly irritating? Looking forward to your comments.

  2. We are volunteering at a senior center serving holiday dinner to be seniors. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Maybe Chinese afterwards and then a movie and relaxation at home.

  3. Richard and I will be delivering Meals on Wheels… Volunteers pick up meals and a newspaper for each recipient at Temple, where the food was prepared. As an interfaith couple, we celebrate both Jewish holidays and also Christmas, so we will open some gifts when we get home. In a day filled with good feelings, it will include a happy trip to the airport to pick up our favorite Rabbi and her husband!
