Hope everyone enjoys the festivities!

It's been a peculiar year. Let's at least end it with some joy.

As a Brazilian, I say "peculiar" is quite an understatement. But in my personal life, 2019 has been quite generous, so I shouldn't complain.

I wish you folks a magnificent Christmas eve, and a beautiful day tomorrow. However you can, make it special. You're all in my heart and in my mind. Stay beautiful, friends!

I'm mostly having to see family. Saw one part of 'em today and... erm, it's incredibly uncomfortable...
Prolly been the worst year since 2016 overall.... really trying my hardest to muster up some joy but I don't think it's happening.

This year's not been great, but yes, let's at least close it out well. Wishing you all a happy Christmas.

And hope the second half of family visit goes better, May

After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us.

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year everyone!

Personally this year hasn't been the greatest for me either but it also could've been a lot worse, so I'm thankful for that.

*pokes her head over the trenches*

Fröhliche Weihnachten?
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

Merry Fröhliche to you Chris! I think. Good to see you and hope you're doing well.

Hope you've had a very, very merry Christmas, Chris! And here's to a great 2020 as well.

Always a joy to see you! [and I got a little bit emotional here]

I'm not sure what disco-era undead wizards have to do with Christmas, but it's good to see you again, Chris! Merry Christmas to you!

I have indeed, and I wish the same for all of you! May, I'm sorry your Christmas has been pretty awful so far, hope it's at least better now.

Graham gave me a bunch of Horus Heresy novels and his parents gave us a restaurant + cinema voucher, so now I can see the saga end. It's been good, as you can see by my well-adjusted avatar.

That sounds positively lovely! Novels and restaurants can't be a bad thing, and I'm sure you enjoyed it.

I got creative this year and gave my nephews a book each (from youngest to eldest, The Chronicles of Narnia, War of the Worlds and Good Omens). They're good readers, and I'm trying to keep that fire lit.

I think my holiday highlight is that some days ago I'd got a Pokemon plush for myself, then a friend of mine for a christmas present got the same one and... I think now I'm a mom?
