Just a quick Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!

Chris... I love the content you provide here. I feel like I can grow in all aspects of my fandom when I visit... LOVE IT!! Keep up the good work!

SG... Over at the other board you were somewhat out of control. I appreciate that you can tone down some of your "charisma" and overwhelming opinions... and moderate. You understand the balance needed to make this place successful, but without losing your fun loving personality. Thanks.

Here's wishing the BSL Board much growth and continued success next year!

For me... holidays are always about family and food.

For those that have a big dinner planned tomorrow, what is on the menu?

Awesome.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Tonight is one of my favorite of the year... Probably because I'm still single. :lol:

Cool. Back roads weren't looking good a couple hours ago. Even 27 & 355 were a mess. You'll be fine, but might take you longer.

Let me know if you need to escape the in laws for a beer. ;)

Laura and I typically spend X-Mas Eve at her parents in Hagerstown, the early morning at our place, brunch / early afternoon at my Dad's, and my Aunt / Uncle's for dinner.

The Aunt and Uncle always make a very traditional meal, similar to Thanksgiving. Main course is roast beef, and yorkshire pudding (http://en.wikipedia....rkshire_pudding). Easy to put some lbs on.

As a son of an English woman, I wholeheartedly endorse the Yorkshire pudding.

We're going to have an adjusted version of our traditional three-part Christmas now that my sister has moved out.

Morning: presents with parents.

Afternoon: brunch (which I'm preparing) and presents with parents, aunt and uncle, sister and brother-in-law. Waffles and pancakes, sausage and Taylor's ham, maybe some other food.

Evening: dinner at my grandparents' with lots of people, followed by a present-opening frenzy. Ham and potatoes, sweet potatoes, biscuits, veggies.

Always my third-favorite food-day of the year.

I'm Jewish, so my "Christmas" is a little different than most on here. I celebrate it the same way most Jews do with Asian cuisine, movies, and some NBA action. Like many have noted, it's about family and food, which brings my family together on this day as well, even if we don't observe Christmas (my uncle likes to note, I do "observe" it by eating Chinese food and going to the movies).

I've always enjoyed Christmas music and seeing the lights as well.

Merry Christmas, Happy holidays, and Happy New Years everyone, looking forward to our continued sports discussions into 2013.

I'm an absolute believer in the idea of a "secular" Christmas as a celebration of family and the end of the year, no matter one's religion or lack of.

More than any one family can eat. Ham, Turkey, and maybe even Prime Rib!!

It will end with me being uncomfortable and vowing to lose 20 pounds. For the 20th year in a row.

Merry Christmas all.

I completely concur with this statement. I'm not too religious to begin with, so the various holidays both secular and religious have always been about family, food, and traditions.

Merry Christmas everyone!

This is our first real Christmas with the kid (she was two months old last year), its the most excited I've been for this day in a while. She still doesn't really grasp it so next year should be even better.

As for food we're having breakfast with the in laws, lunch with my family (Thanksgiving style, my wife is making green bean and candied sweet potato casserole), then out to dinner at a seafood restaurant with the other side of my wife's family. I think it's called Moe's.

Hopefully there's some time in between to relax. I'd like to see Django Unchained sometime this week.
