HO HO HO. MEEEEEEEERY CHRISTMAS. Yeeeeah IÔÇÖm not a good Santa impersonator, however, IÔÇÖm back here as a bouncer for this lovely new club that has opened on the corner of Santa Clause Lane and Frosty Street. Welcome to Club Holly Jolly, the merriest club of all PokeCommunity, also FC&GÔÇÖs first Christmas event.

ANYWAYS, enough of that blabbering about the building history and stuffs, Club Holly Jolly is open from December 1 to the 25th. Talk about upcoming Holiday plans, Christmas traditions, Christmas movies, Christmas music, and so much more.

    This sounds pretty cool! But what do you guys plan on doing for the holidays? Frankly I really won't be doing much besides getting in the holiday spirit :) But I'll definitely decorate a tree like this:

    I actually haven't decorated a tree in years, we moved several times so our tree (and all the ornaments) has been in storage for quite some time. :< I think my dad wants to throw a Christmas party this year though, and if he does he has to bring the tree back, 'cause you can't have a Christmas party without a Christmas tree.

    On the topic of Christmas decorations, I kinda want to get this and hang it on my door. It's so cute. ÔÖą

    Anyone start Christmas shopping yet?

    Haven't decorated a tree since my parents divorced 3 years ago. Plans for this holiday though will be the same as every year, christmas eve with my dad's family and christmas day with my mom's. Then the day after christmas I have to help my dad move out.

    Merry Christmas.

    We celebrate Christmas every year with the presents, feast and getting together as a family! We also usually pull out the tree and decorate it with things we've made when we were 5 or 6 and a few christmas ornaments from different stores.

    This year's Christmas is gonna be different though. I believe we'll be celebrating Christmas in either London, Paris or Italy depending on where we are in our Europe tour. It's gonna be pretty exciting for all of us. :) Hopefully it'll be snowing as well since I've never seen it snow nor built a snowman or any of the other stuff people do around this time. And I've never celebrated a Winter Christmas either which sounds unbelievable as it does to you as it does to me. XD

    Anyway yeah! Merry Christmas to you guys even though it's ages away. I'm looking forward to it already. <3

      Welcome everyone! I'll edit the list asap <3

      I always spend Christmastime with my mom's side of the family, but this year I'm spending it at home instead because of family issues and such. I don't mind it, I guess it's less food to make. I really love that Christmas has the spirit of giving. Like Aslan, I haven't really experienced a white Christmas myself..being a California gal and all...and maybe in the future I'll have one. It's on my bucket list haha.

      Any traditions you guys may have that like to share?

        I think i'll join this club, why not. (:



        Anyway, for our Christmas tradition we spend time at home, and we have our nana (from my mother's side) over. The past two years we hosted Christmas Eve parties at our house, and the day after Christmas we go to our grandparents' house to see our cousins.

        Because my family is pretty damn Italian, we host an event called Feast of the Seven Fishes. It's essentially exactly as it sounds, where each member of our family brings a different fish item for Christmas Eve and basically we all chow down on some Italian delicacies. Even though what my Dad makes has more of an "American-flair" to it, he makes these shrimp that are fried with batter; combine it with a little salt and dear god, it's one of the most delicious things in the world.

          Anything I can do to try and resolve this problem? ):

          Mine is pretty dang Mexican. Like, we would have our Tamales ready two days before Christmas, and then there's the special hot fruit punch ("ponche" as most of us would refer to), and there's also the awesome "let's stay up till midnight" tradition. When I was little, me and my cousins would go to bed really early (like around 9 pm), and the grown-ups would ring the jingle bells and tell us that Santa has arrived. We always open our presents at midnight and not Christmas morning. xD

            ahaha now that i'm an adult there are no traditions... it used to be that, since my parents have been divorced forever, we'd spend christmas eve and morning with mom and open all our presents from her side of the family, then go meet dad. when my brother and i were really young we'd all go to grandma & grandpa's for lunch and dinner, but since my dad remarried everyone came to the conclusion that it was easier to not corral my stepbrothers and instead my grandparents and uncle went to dad's. tbh our actual big family thing is thanksgiving rather than christmas.

            this year i am truly an adult and have to work every day besides christmas day. yaaaaaaay. also nobody is within day driving range this year so whatever?

              I guess it wouldn't hurt giving this a shot... besides well, the holiday spirit is always fun. So yeah, I'm definitely in and with the obligatory Christmas tree!



              My last few Christmases weren't that very jolly to be honest, we didn't even bother with decorations lately because we are just too damn busy and given that Christmas here is celebrated in the summer there's that annoying heat to deal with. But the cool thing is that Australians love to celebrate in a unique way, to fit in with the hot climate.

              In past years I never really had a tradition, it was just hanging decorations up and having a typical Christmas meal on the big day.

              I want to join in! But I'll post the image some other time, because I'm on my phone and ugh :( that okay?

              Sadly, my Christmases have been going worse and worse. It's probably because I'm not a kid anymore and don't get many presents.

              I don't get as many actual presents anymore but I do get more clothes and christmas cards filled with money, both of which are highly appreciated. Used to I'd get like one or two small things from each family member, but it's much better this way.

              I feel the same way as you, in fact if I remember the only presents I got last Christmas were just my Pokemon X & Y games. I usually only get the newest Pokemon games for Christmas only if the release date is after my birthday, and Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire will be the third time in a row I've settled for Christmas instead of my birthday in terms of getting them.

              However I do feel weird every time I ask my mother to get the games, because she thinks Pokemon is for kids and I'm in my early 20's. Expect my Christmas to be boring again since I don't bother with the decorations these days hahahaha.

              You know that sometimes Christmas is not all about the presents and such...at least for me. It's all about getting together with your family, and reminiscing all the moments that this year has brought us. Usually I don't like asking my loved ones what I want for Christmas. I did when I was little, but now as a grown-up..not so much. :p

              It's overwhelming when you feel forced to buy presents for peeps, but trust me...you will feel better in the end. :)

              in my country, Sinterklaas (St Nicholas, december 5; tomorrow!) is the children's holiday where everyone gets presents, so Christmas has never been like that for me. i guess my Christmases have been more like what would be Thanksgiving in the US; i meet with my entire dad's side of the family on Christmas Day, which is about 20 people in total, and we all have like a 5-course dinner together and catch up. my mom's side of the family we used to visit on Boxing Day, but nowadays oftentimes we can't get the whole family together so we just meet up sometime later.

                You know, I'm actually at the age where I'm supposed to start buying Christmas presents for my family and friends and like... wow that's actually really hard? Mainly for the adults. I don't know what adults like. I am not a true adult.
                Like, I can get my brothers Minecraft paraphernalia and they'll be happy. My other friends like Doctor Who and Rooster Teeth. Easy. But the adults? They don't like "stuff". They are practical and want things they can use idk. And it's awkward if you get it wrong.

                I feel the same way, personally - it's not that I don't want to buy Christmas presents for others, I just have a hard time thinking of what to get them.

                And this Saturday we're going to a party that some of the friends of our parents host annually, and we get more than a few visitors we don't see often. On another note I do like seeing lights everywhere across the roads near our house. (:

                I actually want to Christmas shop for my friends and family this year, but I am horrible with gift ideas, and I have no money to spend either. >_>

                Also, my parents decorated the house in full this year, yay! Last year, they only put up a tree and that was it.

                I always have the darndest time thinking of what to get my parents. Friends and younger family members are so much easier.
