4. A metal conquistador, 40” tall, armored and helmeted, standing proudly, holding a spear in one hand, vertically with its butt end on the ground and pointed tip up, and the other hand in a fist on his hip, with elbow pointed outboard. It was a wedding gift, of all the silly ideas, and we had registered.

The worst part of it (apart from cold and crowds) was trying to avoid being splashed by drunken revelers' beer. Never again!

Any holiday travel plans? Or are you hosting?

1. We’ll celebrate Christmas “Eve” on the 16th at my in-laws, a half hour away. With a white elephant gift exchange.

2. We're opening presents on Christmas Eve, because my landlady's grandson has a shared custody agreement between his father (who lives with my landlady) and his mother (who has remarried). Greg gets him every second weekend, but they make special arrangements during holidays. I'll finally be able to see what Mom bought for me that's been hiding in that red sack.

3. We're spending Christmas with my inlaws in NYC; I love them more than my own relatives. And we'll be having a traditional Chinese Christmas dinner in Chinatown. Yes, some Muslims have adopted the Jewish custom of Chinese food on Christmas.
