A quiet christmas sounds nice. We do a lot of feeding folks. Everything revolves around food. Our adult kids go elsewhere for christmas eve, and so our big celebration is on the day of.Normally for christmas, I have a pretty tight schedule.
Christmas Eve: Go to one relatives for lunch, then another for dinner. Then go to church (or avoid it) christmas eve at midnight. Go to sleep around 1AM.
Christmas Day: Wake up in the morning, go to mom's house (or stay over after church night before), wait for brother to get there, open presents. At noon drive to my MIL's house, and get there 2-3 hours later. Hang out with them, eat lunch, exchange gifts, then at 4 drive an hour to take MIL to one of her families house. Have dinner there, after dinner drive another hour to the other side's house for dessert. Hang out there until 10/11. Occasionally later. Drive the hour or two back to her house, to drop her off. Then drive 2 more hours back to my apartment, so I can go to work in the morning. (driving would be split between me and wife)
But this year..nothing. My parents are driving to florida to meet their family, they'll stop by my apartment for a day/night along the way sometime the week after. That's it. I can't wait.
That sounds awesome. What sort of work do you do? I'm not sure what a shutdown install is.I have had large shutdown installs for the last 20 years. Barring no problems, they take 10-12 days. This year is no different. My family is great about bring Christmas dinner to the crew. She said it would be honey baked ham this year.
We have a somewhat large immediate family. Between us, we have 10 kids, their various spouses, and 17 (last time I counted...) grandkids.December is upon us. What do you guys do for the holidays?

Nice! Usually lunch at mum and dad's, but my aunt is holding lunch this year. Loooots of food usually, and can be quite an exhausting time, but should be nice.December is upon us.

I was so distracted by the thought of pfefferneuse that I forgot to reply to the main point.
Yeah it's pretty crazy that doctors are still analyzing this but seems legit.Yeah something to do with drinking too much water or something... but don't know the full story!
