What makes this Christmas better than last year?

Asked by Pandora (23417 points ) December 22nd, 2012

I have both of my kids home for the Holidays this year!

I also had news today that a good and very deserving friend who was facing unemployment, will start a new job in January and it is closer to her home.
That is all I wanted for Christmas and I got it. Yeah!!!

Share why your holidays is special.

He hadn’t come into my life a year ago…and I was in very rough shape due to a bad situation from the year before.

I’ve got a great meal planned for Christmas… Tofurkey, roasted red, white, and blue potatoes, collards, and pineapple.
I’m not dating a sociopath anymore!
I’ve got facial hair and I just celebrated my 2nd anniversary on (the right) hormones.
I haven’t lost any of my vision yet.
I’ve got wonderful friends.
I just heard from the guy I love.

Well, last year I had very little money and I fretted over not having enough to buy decent presents.

This year I don’t have any money, so there’s nothing to fret over.

We have a new baby in the family. She is so precious and absolutely beautiful.

Both my kids will be home and we’re getting together with other family members. That hasn’t happened for at least 7 years.

Last Christmas, I spent a total of 8 days in the hospital with a horribly abscessed tooth. The infection cleared up. The tooth was pulled. I survived.

This Christmas, I’m not sick, I am giving away some fun gifts, and on Boxing Day, I plan on introducing my daughters to the man I’ve been dating.

A much smaller crowd for Christmas Eve than we had for Thanksgiving (14 v. 8).

Less stress due to having a little more cabbage.

They’ve been crappy since my Mom died.

@Mama_Cakes You remind me of the Christmas angel given to me upon my mother passing away last year. (May both moms be resting in peace.)

My hubby has five days off leading up to it.

I barely remember Christmas last year. I don’t remember if we stayed in town or went to my inlaws? I can’t really compare to last year. This Christmas season has been eventful. We went to some very nice Christmas parties and my husband accepted a new job, so we will be moving. I have a wedding to attend on the 29th, which I am very much looking forward to. Christmas itself I expect will be anticlimatic for my husband, which it often is, and makes me feel dissappointed for him. I guess maybe I should do something to try to make it more special for him?

Oh, she looks like a sweet angel! That always has any Christmas beat. I still remember all my kids firsts. Congratulation! She’s beautiful. I love seeing babies smile. It always brings joy to my heart. Thanks for sharing.

@Pandora You’re welcome! She is such a good baby, too. She rarely cries and is so happy.
Thanks! She truly is an angel.

She’s not my baby but my niece’s (she does a wonderful job sharing her, tho!)
