Christmas Eve, my husband and I go to mass at 5:30. When we get home, we celebrate with two of my step sons, and our daughter in law. One step son lives in Florida, so unless he comes to CT, we don't see him during the holidays. I put out an assortment of appetizers, and we also enjoy christmas cookies, relax, and listen to christmas music. On Christmas morning, we open our presents, I make a special breakfast. My step children have people to visit, so they go on their way, while my husband helps me prepare dinner. last yer, we ate dinner later than usual, 4pm. I think we will make that our new tradition because it worked out very well for us. Afterwards, I make coffee, and we enjoy dessert. The kids are always anxious to open everything in the morning, but my husband and i like to wait till later in the day to open our stockings. It's a nice quiet day spent at home, but we enjoy it so much.
