so, how did it go?
I know this was November of last year, but after reading all the replies here, I was wondering how your Christmas went. What are you planning for this year?
In our family we never get together on Christmas day. Our big dinner is always the Saturday before Christmas. It is expected that each family will celebrate the actual day with their own kids at home (or wherever they choose to). This is something that was started when the first of us got married and we still do now. While we cannot always get everyone together, we do the best we can and enjoy each others company.
