Christmas Eve and the Traditions
In our home Christmas Eve is the big part of the Holiday. When we lived closer to family we invited everyone over to our home for Christmas Eve and then spent the next day a little more relaxed. If we visited grandmas that was fine but we had already had our big celebration. We have continued that the past 10 years since moving to Houston. Everyone picks out a few of their favorite appetizers that we make after Mass. We have a little bit of every one's favorite foods. We eat all night and at some point open the gifts that were sent from aunts and uncles and grandparents. We also open our gifts to each other. This year we had the joyous addition of Mr. T with Kat and T-Man. (They were really missing Linda this year and we were thrilled to have them join us.) The party really started once Pooker's boy friend Linguini got here.
