Outside the snow is falling and it's way below freezing. A warm glow penetrates the pitch black night. From within an old cabin, built by oakwood, chrismas carols are heard. Peeking through the window a fireplace is seen, beside it a chair. Looking to the right, someone is moving about in what seems to be the kitchen.
"Oh, hello everybody. Let me just finish cooking the glögg, (for you englishfolks it's called mulled wine, I think...) and I'll be right with you." *Boo chuckles*
"Well now, welcome to my cosy little cabin, it is that time of year again, that wonderful magical time filled with happiness and love and all that stuff." *lights a candle*
"So, before we all go on vacation I thought I would take this opportunity and wish you all a merry chrismas and a happy new year!" *Takes a sip from the glögg*
"I hope you will enjoy it, without stressing out over all the presents that some of you feel compelled to buy. I also think that..." *A loud knock on the door is heard*
"Oh excuse me, that must be santa claus! I've been a good boy this year! Until next time! Cheers!"

This dark and snowy morning of mine wasn't filled with holiday cheer as much as it was with punching a pillow while muffling my screams of nerd-rage with another so as to not wake up the neighbours. The life of us self-professed hardcore gamers is not an easy one, I tell you. :vampire2:

Ah, but you'll all still have a merry christmas and a happy new year from me as well. :)

Deep in the darkness of DoN's gothic abode (I wish xd) there is a perfect picture of two young girls looking forward to their new toys, the missus relaxing and watching them with pride. Staring at it for a moment DoN thinks how wonderful it truly is, until he puts the picture to one side and see's his squabbling children and missus alseep on the sofa......

*sigh*

xd

Aren't families great at Christmas?

A Merry Christmas / Happy Yule (to fellow pagans), and Happy New Year to everyone on Carpe Noctem.

Have a good one

DoN

I've never understood what's so great about gløgg... o.o

Anyway, while it's so freezing here that I'm having trouble sleeping and I've caught a throat ripping cold, that's just how it's supposed to be; these things gets me in a nice Christmas mood every year. Merry Christmas (though I still think it's a bit too early).

Hear hear! Christmas is when everyone's buggered off & I get some peace & quiet to paint, write & sculpt.

'Cept I won't cos I'll be getting sloshed with my wonderful Dad & his wonderful wife, watching Doctor Who and doing impressions of Peter Capaldi. How lovely.

Boozemas cheer to you all! :zombie1:

Bah i get to work over christmas. Get a delayed christmas at new year. However it will help my painting as there is nothing else to do while i am at work and away from family. May just drink wine instead.
But happy Christmas to everyone and may the new year be full of the bodies of our foes!!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year all!

We actually got a white Christmas this year. After some time. Tonight it's freezing -15 C locally :P

And we got snow. Woohoo!

No my beautiful Vauxhall Omega:

I'm not used to driving it in the snow as I only got in recently. Still I'm glad I persevered with it, as it game me some much needed experience.

There's rumours we may be having more snow, so I needed the practice, we may even have a white xmas for the first time in ages in the UK!

That car looks like GTA Vice City car. :P

Our last white xmas was 1981, before my time :( Apparantly we've only had it 5 times in the last century (and obviously never in the 21th century).

Hmm. I'm in Okinawa. A tropical island. My Christmas, and indeed the coldest it's been all year, was around 65 degrees. It rained today too. And christmas is only a few short hours from being over.

It was good though. I wish a Merry, Merry Christmas to everyone!

Merry Yule for you Pagans as well!


Heh. I got my Brigade box for Christmas. More Warhammer models! I've got a veritable horde now.
