Christmas idea

Don't want to ruffle any feathers but Christmas is a special day.

There may be many DC'eres who are alone. Or some who just want or need to chat.

Maybe the mods, God bless them, could make a thread.

No topic. Just one DC'er talking about whatever. Chatting.

Y'all may not want to do that, but I think it would be a good idea.

Just a thought. Merry Christmas.

It's a good idea... I'll try to check in sometime in the afternoon.

This thread right here is great for all of us including the mods and administrators if they need a break and just want to get away for a minute. I know we will be busy and noisy and after several hours of it, I sneak off to have a quiet minute..This would be a great place to come hang out and say HI..Thanks Aunt Dot cool idea.

Buck and I'll be busy Christmas morning stripping packages of wrapping paper and ribbon, but I'll have the bulk of the rest of the day to do whatever I want. It'll be just the two of us for the holiday, so I'll check in from time to time while my turkey cooks.

I won't be very busy, and there isn't anything you can't talk to me about. I've pretty well been there, done that, or have friends or family that did. You cannot shock me.
I've had to deal with depression off and on most of my life, but I've fought the good fight, and can tell you about some of the things (all free!) that have really helped me.

There's always hugs available from G'ma Connie. (Or, I can bash you with my cane, whichever is applicable. LOL!)

whew! I won't be the only one online seeing if anyone's around haha! Holidays get a little lonely for me! My daughter goes to her Dad's half the day, so I don't usually go see my family (45 minutes away) until the evening. I'll be checking in too!!!

My family has plans for me. First, it'll be with my kids, and my daughter's sister-in-law. Then, I'll be off to my sister's house for dinner and comraderie. I may get time to check in late in the evening. But know this, I am with all of my DC freinds in heart, all the time. You're a great bunch.

Oh, and AuntDot, this is a great idea.
