It's Christmas and Festivus week, and whether you're observing anything this week or not, the time to relax and visit with family and friends is certainly a welcome break. Several Democrats in Texas and elsewhere took to Twitter to share how they're celebrating this year.

Bo Obama is full of holiday cheer:

Annise Parker's grand-dogs are also in the spirit:

Even hard-working Senator Rodney Ellis is taking a break this holiday season:

Senator Leticia Van de Putte marked the first holiday without her father with this touching photo:

San Antonio council member Ray Saldana wrapped a big present for his Mom. I wonder what it is?!

Last but not least, Santa's not the only person spreading good cheer door-to-door, as this photo from Lon Burnam shows. Here's to hoping that he succeeds in his efforts to stuff Rick Perry's stocking with a Medicaid extension in the future.
