    We travel to my parents’ for Christmas Eve – Santa finds us there. Then Boxing Day we travel to my in-laws for two days or so.. then divide the rest of our vacation week between our two families & communities. Lots of folks around so usually a large dinner with all the family for Christmas at my folks & smaller celebration with the in-laws. It is always lots of fun – just being together. Thanks for the chance!

  3. Angie Agerter December 19, 2014 at 1:16 am -

    We aren’t going anywhere distance this year. We’ll have dinner at my sister-in-law’s, otherwise that is our only “big” plans.

  4. Colleen Boudreau December 19, 2014 at 1:54 am -

    We’re staying at home and on Christmas day we’ll have the extended family coming over for lunch. Will have to use 2 tables to sit everybody!

  11. Linda Szymoniak December 19, 2014 at 7:14 am -

    My youngest daughter will be coming to visit for a couple of days over Christmas, so she, along with daughters #1 and #2 and I, will be making a day trip to my sister’s house in the southern part of Wisconsin. Since my brother-in-law is retiring this coming year and they have a winter place already in Florida, this will likely be the last Christmas we get together (unless I can make the trek down to FL, but unlikely that all three of my girls would be able to, too). I miss the simpler times, when the girls were all young and living at home and we spent Christmas at home and then the day after or so would visit my sister. I especially miss seeing my mom and dad at Christmas and this year I’m especially missing my mom. I guess it’s because it’s the 10th Christmas without her. It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long.

  12. Laura Farmer December 19, 2014 at 7:17 am -

    Wonderful giveaway. Thank you so much for the opportunity. Happy Holidays!

  13. loriag December 19, 2014 at 7:17 am -

    this Christmas and every Christmas, since we’ve all grown up into adults, will be spent at my younger sisters house. It’ll be a small get together; just the most important people. My sister, her husband, three young kids, my mom, dad and my older brother, are most likely all that will be there. Most importantly, I will spend the entire day playing non-stop with her kids (1,6 &7) until I am exhausted beyond reason!

  25. Joyce Baker December 19, 2014 at 7:48 am -

    My family’s holiday plans aren’t ironed out yet, believe it or not. Though I typically host Christmas dinner at home, this time we might just be spending it at my sister’s. And we always just have a small dinner. But who knows how it’ll be this year since it’ll be the first time I wouldn’t be hosting it. 🙂

    We are staying home this year. We plan to go the the Christmas eve service at church and then spend Christmas morning at home playing with my kids. I am very excited to spend a few relaxing days with my family.

    We will be having a family dinner at my sister’s mother in law house on Christmas Eve. Than on Christmas Day itself – I will be home with both of my parents and we will just have a quiet day at home – chilling in our pajamas, watching movies and eating.
