This will be an odd Christmas: the first one ever with just my wife and I. Beth's visiting her fiancé's parents, Abby and Luke are back from honeymoon but with no vacation for visiting. I have no vacation either, due to the wonderful bike trip this summer. Too busy to make all the practices for Christmas choir, so I'm not in it -- I'm not strong enough musically to be able to skip practices.
Someone recommended a Jewish Christmas: go see a movie and eat dinner at a Chinese restaurant. I'm not sure about the nomenclature, but it sounds like a good idea.
