It has since moving from California. Had good friends there who used to celebrate all holidays with and that was awesome.

All of my family is out East and my own situation is complicated but no holiday celebrations in new home for many years now. I try and pretend it is just another day. Will continue watching my new favorite show now, Ray Donovan! Into season 3 now....shocked how good it is so far.

If you have Netflix, Bird Box is a solid movie.

I am with you, clay. The holidays are surrounded by loss for me, and ongoing issues that immediate family members are struggling with.  Becoming more distant over time is sad.  I'm sorry to hear that you've been through so much.  But know that we are just a few keystrokes away - you're a great member of our community and one of my favorite posters to read.

I nominate Celtics Clay for the next random Celtic talk with Larbrd. Anyway happy Holidays and we got your back if you ever need us.

This is a great idea.

Thanks for the kind words tars. I appreciate it and send them back to you. I wouldn’t be opposed to chatting with Ned on the podcast, we’ve been exchanging messages for many years at this point

I have a feeling this is a more common thing than most people publicly speak about. I’m 35 years old and my whole family has passed away except for my brother. I’ll be darned if I don’t find the whole thing quite depressing. On one Hand I’m thankful I have a lot of friends that send me cards for the holidays. The flip side is getting smiling pictures of smiling couples and babies can feel like a reminder of things you don’t have in life. What are others thoughts? Tps in advance for all




 No doubt about it Clay. Christmas actually started out as just a big drunken celebration in the woods to ward off winter depression.

 We eventually turned it into an economic game where if you don't buy people cheap plastic crap you don't love them.

 Supplement vitamin D. The depression vitamin that everybody doesn't get enough of this time of year. Castor oil packs help me sleep and boost immune function.

 Most of All I'll speak for myself and hopefully others when I say I consider you a brother after all these years. Larbrd is right some of us should contact each other.

 I nominate Celtics Clay for the next random Celtic talk with Larbrd. Anyway happy Holidays and we got your back if you ever need us.  Love you brother. Merry Christmas.

Thank you brothers I appreciate the kind words and feel the same. It was also
Great hearing your voice on the podcast after all these years also

It is well documented that people have more issues during the holidays.  Merry Christmas to all in this thread.

I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

Just saw this man.  I actually just sent you both Merry Christmas PMs before even clicking into this page.  I don't keep a watchful eye on all the threads here these days and almost missed this.  I usually only stop by here when someone sends me a direct message and I log in to respond.

Hope you and everyone else here is doing alright.   

The Holidays are a mixed bag for me.  There's things about it I love.  There's things about it that are difficult.  I hope everyone can find some brightness in it.  Personally, I have a complicated relationship with my immediate family and have spent the past several holidays either with friends or with my wife's relatives.  Even if that's not an option, hopefully people can enjoy the day to kick back and relax.  At the very least, I hope everyone has the day off and can spend the day lounging in their underwear watching some hoop.   There's nationally televised games all day tomorrow.
