Event Description

For some, this will be your first Christmas without your loved one ... for others of us, we've done this before but it still isn't easy.  Will you be joining friends or family? Have you decided to create a new tradition? Are you spending the day alone? Is this an anniversary or birthday month, too?

If the day is a hard one for you, please remember that someone will be here in the chat room to lend a listening ear, to share experiences, to hold your hand, and maybe even to share some smiles, too. 

If you'd like to sign up to commit to being that "someone" in the chat room for an hour or so on Christmas, please leave a comment with the time you'd like to volunteer and I'll add you to the list (please include your time zone).

My boss & I deliver goodies to our employees who have to work on Christmas, so I'll be away from my laptop from about 3am to 7am Pacific time (yes, that's AM ... we catch graveyard going off shift and days coming on).  So if anyone happens to be available in the morning East Coast time, I'd sure appreciate the coverage.
