What does Christmas mean to you?

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

This time of year one wants to reflect on many things. Christmas means a lot to me as we always have family come from all over. My kids start coming about a week before Christmas and usually stay until New Year's. This year two of my sons won't be there along with one of my dil and 2 of my grandchildren. They just can't make it this year. But we will have 8 of them that includes a sil & dil and 1 grandchild coming. So altogether there will be 10 of us.

We all play lots of games and also watch some Christmas movies together. We save getting a tree until the family is together and then we all decorate it together, then sit down around the lit tree and sing Christmas carols while we drink eggnog and eat Christmas cookies! On Christmas Eve everyone opens just one gift. Then on Christmas day we open presents and just enjoy each other all day long! Instead of a huge meal, we snack. I make veggie and cheese and cracker trays with pickles and olives and sandwich fixings. There is no particular Christmas that sticks out the most to me, every year has it's very special moments that makes each Christmas very, very special!!!
