Re: Do you like to dress up on Christmas Day?

Don't jump @MattMatt. It's not worth dying over. lol

Always wanted my wife, either one, to wear something really sexy like a Santa's helper and go commando with some hot stockings or something. I don't have a only this way idea. I'm open to different sexy styles on a woman. Anyway, it never happened. sniff sniff



Only clothing I can remember wearing was once or twice I wore one of those goofy Christmas sweaters with pants and so forth... not just the sweater.

You dirty minded smart asses. lmao

Just normal wear for me. I don't dress up extra fancy, as there isn't any need.

There's no need. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't just do it, anyway!

Re: Do you like to dress up on Christmas Day?

When I was a kid we went to my grandparents for a big Christmas Eve with all the family and sometimes stray friends of family. That was a dressy occasion. Just like Easter and Thanksgiving, we dressed up in our nice clothes and took more care with our hair and any make-up.

Christmas Day, however, was casual. We pretty much wore pajamas all day, were completely lazy after the presents mess was cleaned, and snacked all day on a veggie and meat tray buffet Dad would set up in the morning.

As an adult staying at home? I totally lounge around in pajama's or sweats and put minimal effort into food. It's more a bonus day off to spend with DH than a major holiday.

Follow the evidence where it leads and question everything.

Re: Do you like to dress up on Christmas Day?

Nope...just jeans and a sweater after the lounging around portion of the day is over. Once I get started cooking I have to wear real clothes. It's just a thing for me.

This year I will be opening presents with my kids and my STBXH and then the kids are off to work for a few hours.

I'm going to go spend those hours with my new guy...after reading @2ntnuf 's post, I think I might get a sexy Santa's helper outfit and show up in that

Cool Re: Do you like to dress up on Christmas Day?

No dressing up or dressing down is required ~ just want to be proper whenever it's time to pray ~ and then eat!

Re: Do you like to dress up on Christmas Day?

Have to say I am kind of surprised by all the "no big deal" about Christmas on the multiple threads. Christmas has always been a big deal in my family. Yes we have big family get together and meal. Yes we dress up for it. Not suit and tie or formal evening wear dresses but close - our best not wedding/funeral formal. Yes we semi stress on what is the best most thoughtful or needed present we can get for all family members. Yes we go overboard. Christmas is a big deal - see all/most family members, show our best, brag about accomplishments, share plans and dreams, and how maybe we can help each other.

Desert is a long process - as we have a tradition of tell a story / update family on life this year. We alternate, youngest, oldest, and move back and forth until we get to the closest ages which seems to always deliver some of the most spirited discussion as they engage each other. The younger look on paying close attention and the old smile and think, and maybe give advice later. It is a very bonding cool time. I love Christmas.

I sincerely hope all here have a great one.

Hmm. Casual. Slacks, sport coat, colorful dress shirt - slacks, belt and socks color determined by the color of the former. DO NOT MIX BROWN AND BLACK, FOLKS.

Run as you may, you can not escape the wrath of the almighty bung hole, for I am the almighty bungholio!

Re: Do you like to dress up on Christmas Day?

We don't wear nice clothes on Christmas Day. We have matching family one-piece Christmas pajamas... and I'm forced to wear them all day. Including to my parent's house for extra torture.

We are all dressed up semi-formal when we get together with my extended family, but that's usually the day after Christmas.
