Our Christmas Day is small, just a few people. No big dinner, just mostly snacking on the previous night's leftovers. By Dec 25 we are usually wore out, and like to use the day for nothing but relaxation.
Most of our larger gatherings occur on Christmas Eve. For the past twenty years our Christmas Eve's have been with around ten people, but this year we are re-establishing an old tradition, and having over people and family members that were part of our yearly Christmas Eve get-together through the late-70's to mid-80's, but for whatever reason slipped away. Then, we were kids. Now, we all have our own families, so we may have, I don't know, twenty-five...thirty people over?!?!
Should be hectic, frantic, and filled with amazing memories and laughter.
Just another reason why Christmas is so amazing.
