Merry Christmas to Everyone! December 25 2015

I know we all don’t technically celebrate Christmas but most of us do have Christmas Traditions. Growing up I spent the holiday with my dad. He would always buy the biggest tree he could and sometimes it was a struggle getting it into the house. We had other traditions which included making pies on Christmas Eve and eating Spaghetti for Christmas dinner. I'm glad putting coal in my stocking didn't become a tradition.

Unfortunately I don’t get to spend Christmas with my dad every year anymore but I have some new traditions with my husband and our family. As stereotypical as it may be, we always eat Chinese Food on Christmas, like most Jewish people do.  My husband usually cooks dinner on Christmas Eve since I’ve historically been super busy working. This was my chance to relax a bit after the holiday rush. We also tend to travel on Christmas Day usually to somewhere with snow for a ski holiday or back from that ski holiday to visit family.

This is the first year in many that we’re changing it up a bit.  We ordered our Chinese food last night and are looking forward to a nice afternoon with friends. I’m cooking and trying some new recipes. I will be sure to post the recipes that are winners. We are headed to Williamstown, Massachusetts next week and hope to find some snow there!

Have a great holiday whatever your traditions may be. Feel free to leave a comment and tell me about them. I’m always looking for new ideas to incorporate into my family’s traditions.

Happy Friday,


Christmas Gifts
