Christmas Day - small and intimate gathering or large get together?

christmas day, is it just your nearest and dearest or a big bunch of friends? is the christmas dinner table laid for 2 or 22? does it vary every year?

It's pretty large, I would say about 15-ish peeps or more. Only close family usually and it gets loud. We like to sit around and eat, play games and just enjoy our time together, we have fun and there is plenty of laughter. When/if it gets to be too much, I hide in my room for a bit. But, I love my family and wouldn't trade the experience for anything.

Since we stay home and celebrate Christmas with my husband and step children, the gathering isn't too large. This year, I figure six of us, maybe one or two more, if my sil and her son also come.

RyanTheElf has shown a merry disposition
We used to have a large christmas breakfast with our whole family on the morning of christmas. I'm 22 now but I remember going there and showing our family and kids what we all got for christmas. The tradition has stopped due to family moving and age catching up on the grandparents. To be honest, I love a nice intimate christmas with just my familly, waking up and spending that time together is wonderful

We used to have big family Christmas Dinner - anywhere from 10 - 15 people. Family members have settled down and started their own families so now we have scaled things back to us (5) and maybe a couple other people. Last year was the first time where we didn't have anyone over for Christmas Dinner and it was nice. Spent less time in the kitchen cooking and cleaning up and was able to spend more time with the family.
