Hey OB! It's been a while. I thought I'd try to stir up some conversation with a nice timely topic. As of today we are less than six weeks away from Christmas, but there's a lot that goes on in the time leading up to it. How do you spend your holiday time? Where are you spending your Thanksgiving? Are there activities you do every year? Do you travel to see family? If you don't celebrate Christmas, what kinds of winter holiday stuff do you do? My family doesn't have too many traditions. Since my grandparents moved to an assisted living place we've had to move our Thanksgiving dinner to my aunt's house, which is pretty different than what I've been doing my whole life but it's still pretty nice. Most members of my dad's side of the family will be there and I intend to eat myself into a coma so I don't have to put up with our differences for too long. I'm especially geared up for Christmas, though. My family will pick up a tree day or two after Thanksgiving but we don't really make a big deal out of decorating it. Last year we bought a real tree to replace our old synthetic one, so I think we'll do that again. I'm going to start working on my Christmas wishlist today--I always put together a nice sleek presentation, it's kind of silly. The only problem is there isn't anything I especially want, other than a new laptop (which is too expensive to ask for, anyway), so I'll have to really brainstorm. I've already bought gifts for some of my friends and I'm really excited to wrap them up. The only thing I'd really consider a Christmas tradition is that my dad and I go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra every year. We've been doing it since I was in ninth grade, and this is the tenth year in a row that we're going to the concert. If you have the chance to see TSO, I highly recommend you do it! They combine Christmas, classical, and metal and put on this unbelievable light show. I'm getting chills just thinking about it. So, let's get talking! Tell us about your holidays!
