What are your plans for the 2011 winter holidays? - What type of rest do you prefer in the most desired period of the year, in Christmas and New Year Holidays? Traveling or city break?

We are heading toward Sri- Lanka. Really looking forward to the break. We managed to grab a great package from escape2srilanka. Cant wait to experience a warm christmas. My friends who recently visited Sri Lanka have loads of exciting stories and recomended we visit the country.
Going home. There really is nothing like Christmas with your family, particularly when you live far away.
I'm from Australia and I'm Europe-bound! On the contrary to the first poster, I'm looking forward to my first White Christmas! Christmas Day is Rome and New Years Eve is Paris.
I just want my baby girl home for Christmas. She is in Italy and I miss her.
I'm going to visit my friend at London! Yay! That's going to be really great. <snip>

Awww Lee Ann - I do hope your girl gets home for christmas.
OK-- so this is an interesting topic.
This year we are looking forward to a San Francisco holiday season. We will enjoy going into the city and experiencing the hustle and bustle of city life and the decorations.
We really have not lived near our family for the past twenty years. It is good to see family at Christmas but rather crazy at times. I want to see them and enjoy the holidays with them but honestly------which we could celebrate in the summer instead. Guess I should have grown up in Australia.
Flying across America at the holidays is not fun. Crowded, over booked flights---with people who rarely fly and don't know how to board planes. The planes are filled with crying children and parents trying to carry- on all kinds of Christmas gifts that they should have mailed. The airlines deliberately over book and passengers become irate when bumped from their holiday flight (and rightfully so).
So-- again, this year we are flying off to see our family in Ohio. Please keep your fingers crossed that it does not snow and the flights do not get cancelled.
We dream of one day going to a Caribbean island and enjoying a quiet ----- and warm Christmas.
We don't generally go out for New Year's.
Christmas and New Year will be the four of us together...and if you know me, this is THE most important thing.
Being with your love ones. Once this is reached, everything else is a lot less important.
We do intend to do something special though for the opportunity, as we will be part of the few first who will celebrate NY this year! All this the feet in the sand and water...
Traveling or city break?
I like both. Though, I think my boyfriend and daughter prefer to be here at home in Munich, Germany for Christmas and New Years. All 3 of us spent Christmas and New Years in India one year, and they really missed our Chrismas at home traditions, such as the fireworks in the neighbourhood at midnight on New Years Eve etc.
we are in China currently and we will spend Christmas in Xiamen and Gulang Yu Island but we already feel that it won't be the same as at home;-( ow well, at least we have each other and maybe we come across some nice travelers over there so fingers crossed;-)
