    Re: the "Bates Motel" ... LOL!

    Owning a motel requires a substantial commitment, but the owner / operator is secure in the knowledge that they are in command, able to capitalise on the value of their business and property and reap the rewards.

    And what could be more worth celebrating than that?

    BTW, "celebrate" comes from the Latin "celebratus" which means to frequent in great numbers. So if you're not frequenting in great numbers, you're really not celebrating.

    I make up great numbers all by myself, I'm just that festive.

    For the record, my favorite two holidays are:

    1) Halloween
    2) Talk like a pirate day

    I celebrate Xmas in the commercial, capitalist pig-dog manner people supposedly have disdain for.

    I can't stand being outdoors and natural light is more of an inconvenience to me than anything else-- just one more stupid thing that keeps me from falling asleep when I've already been awake for three days. The ironic thing is that I usually use the tanning booth while the sun is shining because I like to hit the gym at dawn and I always tan afterwards.

    Re: What winter holiday do you celebrate?

    I usually celebrate Christmas at my home every year but this year I am going to my mom's cabin in West Virginia. My parents had bought a beautiful cabin on a mountainside some years back and have been having it renovated over the years (our permanent home is in NC). This year, all the family is going to the cabin and the guest house there to be together for the first time in 8 years.

    Normally, Christmas at my home starts with midnight mass on Christmas Eve. Usually my friends Rachel and Sean and I get sauced beforehand to make it a little more tolerable. After about an hour of Joshua glaring down his nose at us, we slip out the back and return home for a nightcap and then bed. Early in the morning some time, I get up and set out gifts, fill stockings and start breakfast. Everyone gets up and has breakfast, opens gifts and then they get ready to go see their families while I start making Christmas Dinner for that evening. Once everything is in the oven, I sit down with a bottle of Maker's Mark and watch "It's a Wonderful Life". By the time it's over, everyone starts arriving and Rachel and I finish dinner up and set it out buffet style.

    I cannot recall anything that happens on Christmas after about 7 PM. It's usually a haze of booze, gluttony and, if its a good Christmas, some bad decisions.
