We have a meal of lutefisk, lefse, and norweigian meatballs for Christmas Eve dinner. Those are the staples, we also usually have potatoes, other dishes brought to pass and enough cookies to circle the earth (twice). Afterwards all the kids write down on a list what they will perform this year, and they put on the annual christmas program where they will sing a song or play an instrument for the show. It's a great time!
Then some years we will all head off for Midnight Mass. Some years we will stay in and go at 8 a.m. the next morning.
