I'm going home to my parents this year to have Christmas with them and my sibling. Last year I was visiting my boyfriend so it will be disappointing to spend this Christmas apart. However, I'm trying to look on the bright side ... it's his last Christmas inside so the next one we'll spend together as free people.

Guessing I will spend it at home, and possibly my son will come out for dinner.

I have a wedding invite for Christmas Eve, but the wedding is not terribly close by and that is my departed Daddy's birthday (RIP)... so doubt I will attend.

None of the answers below are adequat for my this year's situation.
I wish I could spend Christmas with my family BUT I live too far away PLUS I have to work all days of Christmas. So I'll spend this time AT WORK.

This year I will be home with his family and my family at different times. This will be my third Thanksgiving and Christmas with him gone. He was arrested on Nov 1,2012 so he was in county jail that year, but last year I took his 16 year old daughter who he had only seen once when she was about 18 months old, and she found him on facebook after he was arrested and his dorms visit day fell on Christmas last year, but I told him she couldn't come until between Christmas and New Year's, and showed up on Christmas Day and surprised him. This year her and I will visit Friday after Thanksgiving, and I think Dec 30th.
