Christmas should be a time to look forward to but dont know about the rest of you , im so tired and I have relatives coming over on Christmas day which is tomorrow and I should be looking forward to it but im not.  Why does fibro ruin everything. I will smile and put on a face I guess, my kids will enjoy it which is most important to me.  At least it wont be to hot for once. Im Australian.  sue2z confused confused

I could not imagine spending Christmas where is was actually hot :) The closest I've come to that is spending a few Christmas's in the south (U.S. :)

Happy Holidays!!!
Much Love, Hugs, Peace and Comfort!!!

It does sound strange having Aussies on here worrying about it being too hot tomorrow when so much of the US is digging out from under snow.
I know it's what we get use to and I have been in warm places for Christmas but when you grow up with snow it just isn't the same when Santa is out in shorts at Christmas time.
At least you can send the children out to play. My youngest son suggested over the weekend that we start having Christmas Labor Day weekend so they can all be outside.
No matter what the weather I hope you have a great Christmas.
luv and hugs

Merry Christmas!  I live in Florida and it is 77 degrees out right now.  devil   
You will have a wonderful day tomorrow.  Just focus on all of your blessings and you can't help but smile!  You don't even have to put the smile on your face.  It will go there immediately.  We truly do have so many things to be thankful for.
Have a very merry Christmas tomorrow!

I am so jealous of your weather. After all this snow, I would not care if Santa wore Speedos.

Hahaha, a speedo wearing, surfer Santa.... Only in Australia!  I think I'll plan a hot weather destination for next Christmas.  This is going to be one very long and patience-testing winter.
