    Christmas time is here! Not just the “its after Halloween so it’s technically near Christmas!!!! Season” but real for real December, with Christmas slowly creeping up on us. So, have you put up a tree? Are you decorating? Will you be spending obscene amounts of money on string lights to make your house pretty? Taking any trips to see family? What are your Christmas plans for 2019?

    So far, I’ve only set up a tree, a fake one at that, with barely any decorations. But, I do have a cat, who is excited to join in the Christmas cheer by photo bombing my tree!

    Wait untill I get paid in 2 weeks and buy the rest of the gifts I have to buy. i dont have much left to buy, just minecraft switch for my nephew, something for my dad( probably some clothes), a dash cam for my brother in law and something for my sister(maybe a giftcard or something).

    Then spend all of my time playing video game and caring/re doing my enclosures for my animals. I currently have 3 snakes(looking to sell my ball python), 3 leopard geckos, a sandfish skink and my dog. Going to a reptile expo this weekend so I might becoming home with another animal or not, just depends on the prices.

    Also my family thinks I have alot, but if your into the reptile hobby. most of us have 20+ animals(atleast most of the people I know that are in it).
    I tell my family that I could "waste" my money on worst things like drugs or other things

    I plan to avoid deep depression to my best avail, but Christmas is kind of hard.
    Oh wait, enough of a downer.

    I plan to travel to Barcelona and eat my heart out of top quality Iberian food.

    PS: My family is 12000Km away, so... too bad.

    First christmas day will be going over to the parents in law. Second however it's time to prepare some yummy yummy rabbit as dinner for just me and @DinohScene. Actually wishing it would snow aswell, but that will be highly unlikely.

    No to all of the above. My family all lives nearby so it's not much of a trip. Haven't really made any plans yet, don't even know where we're celebrating Christmas, but hopefully at my aunts, always have a good time there, and she just moved house (closer to me luckily so it's not such a long walk) so I want to see the new place too.
    New years, probably at my moms, might end up going somewhere else after dinner though, who knows.
