Had a rather eventful Christmas and New Year's celebration myself.
The weekend before Christmas, my mother and I spent a lot of time cleaning and storing items into boxes in preparation for our upcoming kitchen remodel.
Asides a Christmas Eve service that I performed in at a local church, my mother and I had a nice Christmas on the holiday itself. We had a shrimp feast for lunch, which included fried shrimp, shrimp casserole, coconut shrimp, biscuits and corn on the cob. After that, we watched a few Rifftrax Live DVDs, such as "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians," "Christmas Shorts-stravaganza!" and "Santa Claus" (1959). We also opened presents, and here's what I got this year:
A Bojack Horseman art book
A Bojack Horseman calendar
A $25 Amazon gift card
A $20 Barnes and Noble gift card
A personalized key chain
An ice pack for my lunches
A Nintendo Switch copy of "Carnival Games"
Rifftrax DVDs of "Birdemic" and "Jack the Giant Killer"
A book copy of "Nightmare of Ecstasy: The Life and Art of Edward D. Wood, Jr."
Wednesday, I worked an early shift and got home just before my aunt and cousin would arrive so we could all go out to a Chinese buffet restaurant for supper and look at a few houses decorated with an abundance of Christmas lights and displays.
Thursday, my aunt left early to fly out to New York City to see a friend perform in a play, and I worked a day shift and came home to have a spaghetti meal with my cousin, play the card games "Speed" and "Golf" and also watch the 1960 version of "The Little Shop of Horrors" featured on a Rifftrax DVD.
Friday, I took my cousin out to the mall to spend the day hanging out, do some shopping, play games at the arcade (I won a couple prizes and some candy) and see "Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse" for the second time (he had not seen it yet). Afterward, we came home to wait for my mother to take us out to a different Chinese buffet restaurant for supper (which wasn't that great, honestly), and see a community theater performance of "A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol," which basically is a modernized retelling of "A Christmas Carol" done Minnesota style with some naughty but humorous bits thrown in there.
Saturday, I worked while my cousin and mother went to the natural history museum and planetarium, and they both had a good time.
Sunday, I worked while my cousin hung out at home watching football until my aunt came home to spend the night.
Today, my aunt and cousin left for home while I went on a major shopping spree, getting things that I actually wanted for Christmas (including a few Nintendo Switch games like "Roller Coaster Tycoon Adventures") and purchasing a bunch of 2-liter sodas for an upcoming holiday party. What a way to spend New Year's Eve. ^^
Hope everyone has had a wonderful time celebrating the holidays and the New Year!
