Christmas 2008 (and other December holidays)

Christmas is coming up on 2008.12.25-Th

What is your take on Christmas, and what are you gonna do on or before this day? are you gonna do some Christmas shopping?

I know there is also other holidays/occassions in December for 2008, like Hannukah (Jewish holiday) (AM5769.09.25-10.02[Kislev-Tevet]/2008.12.22-9[Mo-Mo]), Kwanzaa (2008.12.26-31[Fr-We]), and the Islamic new year (AH1430.01.01[Muharram]/2008.12.29-Mo)

In Canada, we observe boxing day on December 26

OMG! I can't believe the start of the new Islamic year (AH1430.01.01[Muharram]/2008.12.29-Mo) falls 3 days before New Year's day! (2009.01.01-Th). AH1429 started on 2008.01.10-Th, 9 days after New Year's day

For me, Christmas, or rather the Season, is a special time of sharing with friends of different denominations, gatherings and attending special parties for those children who don't have a Christmas tree; being "adopted" as a family member by residents in aged care facilities during their Xmas party; and generally catching up with those friends you treasure.
