  • what do YOU do on Xmas day ?

    :salams

    No I dont mean like do you have a tree and all that no.

    I mean everything is shut down, the TV is just hijacked by loads of xmas stuff the streets are empty.

    What do you do ?

    Please note - Im not encouraging any haraam activites just intrested :)

    The same thing you may do on a Sunday or any other bank holiday? If you have kids, there are loads of indoor activities you can do or even get together with friends, go to the park/ walk etc etc? Not sure why it would be anything different to any other holiday! :p
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,
    Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

        i think everything is shut down more than the other bank holidays as they still have tube, buses, shops open etc but we will just stay home or depending on whether can go to the park that will still be open. will either just play with the kids at home or as hubby will be off maybe i will try and use it as a chance to reorganise some cupboards, declutter the house etc while he plays with kids. also i wana get some game to play for xbox kinect so we can do that as something active while everything is closed and if park is too cold.
        i wouldnt do anything out the ordinary or celebrate or nething but we have 2 be aware its coming up cos even the supermarkets will b closed and i think its hard 2 get delivery slots very near to xmas so have to make sure u get enough food in the house etc, althougn tbh its prob only closed for 2 days xmas and boxing day, but that seems like a long time as we are used to everything open all the time

              christmas doesn't feature in my life, in fact i don't even know it's christmas unless someone tells me so, so i do on that day what i do the rest of the year.

                  Nothing i don't do any other day...though i really don't like it since all the shops are closed and streets are quiet and stuff - i hate quietness.....it feels boring and depressing.

                              Usually family and relatives have vacations and we get together and have big meals. We're not celebrating Christmas, it just so happens that we get this time off together.
