Without the smell of awesome food in the oven on Christmas, I'm not sure what I'd do.
Well in my family, when we cook Christmas dinner we don't eat it until Christmas day. That's why we start cooking on Dec. 23 so we can all relax and enjoy our gifts and family time. When we heat up our dinner it certainly smells like Christmas in the house. As soon as my brothers and I smell the turkey we're right back in the kitchen asking mom when dinner is going to be ready.
