It's Dec 25th. It's a day off work, the stores and most restaurants are closed, there's nothing on TV and there's nothing to do. So what do you do?

We were going to the movies, but the weather might not been so good for travel. It's home with the movie DVDs and dim sum for dinner. We're also clearing the sidewalks of snow and ice.

My shul always has a learning program on the 25th. I didn't go, but it was very well attended. Probably 60 or so people. We have 5 or 6 rabbis giving classes on different aspects of halacha.

I just hung out with my girlfriend and got ready for Shabbos since it was Erev Shabbos this year.

The Jewish Community Center and the Islamic Center in my town both have many programs, from educational to fun to religious, on Christmas. Generally they schedule something family-oriented outdoors, ready to call off it based on bad weather as necessary. Often it's some sort of nature walk along the Erie Canal, since both facilities have it at one edge of their properties.

Maryn, approving

Lol, my shul doesn't cancel anything for anything. Two feet of snow? There were more people at the early minyan (7:30) that Saturday morning than I had seen all year.
