    Post General Holiday/Celebration Thread

    Talk about any holiday/celebration type events here. Thought it would be useful if it's all in one place.

    Well its the day before Thanksgiving here in the US so I did my last minute shopping after work. When I got home I spent a hour peeling and thinly slicing six sweet potatoes and then boiling them about ten minutes so they are soft, but not al dente. Right now they are cooling down, and I will transfer them to a flat cookie sheet, and wrap then up and refrigerate. Tomorrow I will divide them up into two casserole dishes. In one dish I will top the sweet potatoes with real maple syrup. In the other one I will top them with cranberry sauce. I will cook them in the oven for 20 minutes at 250F and they should be good.

    Unfortunately the holidays are not what they use to be since I lost my only sibling thirteen years ago, and I lost my dad to cancer three years ago. Even though I'm 33 years old I'm not interested at dating anybody right know even though my mom keeps saying I should join a dating site at least once a month, but I can understand that she just wants to see me have a social life . Tomorrow my Mom and I are going to Thanksgiving mass in the morning, and then we'll visit my aunt and uncle (my uncle is recovering from an operation). Later my mom and I will celebrate our Thanksgiving meal tomorrow night. I will watch the Packers/Bears game tomorrow night, and I hope the Bears will win it.

    Happy holidays, Namio. I hope you and your mom have a really great one.

    As for me, I'm just doing the same thing I do every year. Eat and sit around listening to everyone talk while watching the football game. The 1 of 2 football games I watch every year.

    well, it'll be my third straight year away from home for the major last holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years). However it won't be with no family members this time. I meet my mother in Spain on the 19th, so that will be a bit different. For her it will be her first holiday away from home/family, so it will be an interesting experience. Got all my gifts for my family members while in Egypt, so I am set. Skyped my family a little bit ago and that's the most I will get of Thanksgiving this year. Being the only American here on Samos means no celebration.

    Prayers go out to your Uncle for a successful recovery. I haven't attended Church in a long time I'll try to do so before ending this year.

    This is my first Christmas of not being with my parents or seeing any friends. It's really weird feeling. Especially since I'm in Cali and it's not freezing. My roommate is out of town and it's just me and the cats.

    Never had the opportunity to try it....Guess I'll order Chinese for dinner.

    Merry Christmas (and other festivities) to everyone !!

    I got another cool shirt, this time was a black one with the Mortal Kombat logo in the center, it was a simple celebration, but I liked.

    Merry X-mas everybody. I just got back from my spending a couple hours with my cousins and aunts that I haven't seen in a while.

    I'm kind of envious of one of my cousin's and his fiancee who had an overnight layover in Iceland on their way to Switzerland this past spring. In Iceland they stopped by one of the many silicone geothermal spas, and had a massage and manicure done. They said in the future they would love to stay in Iceland for an extended period of time. There are many places I would like to visit especially one where you can cruise the Alaska coastline, but I need something called money before I can go on that trip. Also my cousins and a couple of my aunts told me to download an app called "Word with Friends" on my I-Phone so I can play Scrabble with them at anytime. I am know playing four games with them as we speak.

    Speaking of Christmas what is up with this weather. It was 55 degrees here in Maine today. I actually wore a short sleeve shirt to my Uncle's place today with no jacket required and one of my cousins was wearing shorts today. One of my aunt and uncle's family who are from Connecticut said they reached 70 degrees yesterday.
