Christmas Eve has always been the only time my whole family has gotten together. Growing up , that was really the only holiday commitment, to be at my mother's house that night. No excuses accepted. At least not without a doctor's note or one from your boss.
Since she passed seventeen years ago my siblings and I host on a rotating basis. Really just my sister and I. This year it is my turn, which really is good since my sister spent the first week of the month in the ICCU. Anyway, I have to maintain the family traditional meal of bratwurst. Two kinds. I don't know of anyone else who has this tradition, and believe me I asked. Why couldn't we have an Italian fish tradition? I like fish....
Anyway, Happy Holidays to all, no matter what it is that you celebrate. ANd if you don't recognize any, have a Happy New Year,.
