Plan Chrristmas Week

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
It was Christmas evening,
On TheSite.org,
An old man said to me,
You better have a plan,
A plan for Christmas Day,
A plan for Christmas Eve,
A plan for every day,
You’ll get by if you have a plan.

The old man then went to a website where old men go while we were all amazed that old men could use the internet.

We knew he was right, because he must have seen it all in a life that stretched as far back as Christmas itself. So we planned every day. We thought about the cool things we would do, and the positive ways we would get through those moments when we weren’t in the mood for doing cool things. Then we shared them, right here.

What a fairytale!

    Well that's a bit creepy...


    I'm working Christmas eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, in a children's home. Worked there last year and it was lovely - making Christmas enjoyable for the children is the most important thing. If I've got time I'd like to help in a soup kitchen too.

    Xmas eve will be preping stuff for the next day. Xmas day will be collecting MrRiot and little one to bring them back and spend the day together. Boxing Day might be spent with MrRiot's family but we haven't got that far. Playing it by ear seems to be the motto this year!

    Don't worry, it was probably Age UK.

    That's a great plan for Christmas. I imagine it will be lots of fun. Bring lots of joy to the children and in doing so you'll bring joy to yourself.

    It's definitely better to play Boxing Day by ear. Once we did that with Christmas Day. Thinking nobody would invite us round for Christmas, her who does the shopping went and bought a turkey and everything else we would need. Then on Chrristmas Eve no earlier, we got news that we were wanted at a relative's house. We had certainly had enough of turkey by the time the turkey we bought was eaten. You can never have enough pigs in blankets or Yorkshire puddings though.

    The exam isn't on Christmas Day so you can give the revision a break. What will you buy when you go shopping?

    Working Christmas Eve.

    Christmas day just chilling and family time, boxing day, not too much. And then back in work the Monday after boxing day. I don't mind working to be honest, the children are excited and they make me happy :heart:
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
    '' It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling "

    That's a good plan, involving contact with a load of people. The best thing about it though, is, you're coming up north!

    It's a difficult time when you've lost somebody. UWatching Christmas films is a good idea, and there are plenty on.Get your nana to watch Christmas films too. It might make her feel a bit better.

    Working Christmas Eve is exciting if work means being with children who can't wait for Christmas.

    I'm sure you'll find time to text your new bf when you're with your family. That sounds like a good plan.
