Flying in my parents this year. Sometimes we fly to them and my in-laws. Easier for the oldsters to travel, because they're retired and can stay longer. Tree goes up every year; sometimes a live one, sometimes not. We have a big Christmas ornament collection that reminds us of people, places and different times in life. Husband does most of the Christmas shopping in one shot for all the kids in the family. Everything is bought online, gift-wrapped or -boxed, and it goes straight to each kid's home. Love online shopping. I've already ordered and received gifts for everyone on my team at work. Same gift for everyone. I'll take them out for lunch and give out the gifts, plus a gift card for each person. Haven't decided which gift cards this year. Sometimes iTunes, sometimes Starbucks. I'll write a card to each person, to thank each for individual contributions to our team.
