should you be celebrating the occasion.

the paramour and i were retrospecting how much more we like the season now than when we were still under obligation to celebrate it. it's just really relaxing when one doesn't have to rush around to buy gifts and prepare for social occasions. usually i bake cookies and the paramour makes a turkey (which during the year we win at some point by shopping a lot at the big wholesale store which gives loyalty gifts) -- best stuffing ever, too. we have time off between the years, and we mostly game and cuddle the cats. i knit, crochet, and spin some stuff.

if the weather is nice (ie it's not pouring) we walk and look at the lights. that's my favourite part of xmas, the lights.

glowing blue snowflake ornaments with blue, red, and orange lights surrounding them and reflecting in a window

PS: i am not sure it counts as a workout when a walk doesn't even remotely raise my heart rate, but what the heck: 50 min walking and taking pictures in ladysmith.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. I'm having a nice, relaxing vacation, enjoying picking up various video games on massive sales, and doing whatever I feel like doing, instead of worrying about being hyper-social or relaxing from having had to get everyone gifts, etc. And my mom and I have been walking the neighborhood and looking at the lights.

Wandering with your paramour, admiring the lights sounds like a wonderful thing :)

(I figure movement > no movement, even if it's not the optimum movement, if that makes sense)

That sounds like a lovely time.

I was going to visit my sibs. Hid from the ice storm instead; seems to have been a sensible plan.
