This year it is going to be homemade pizza with anchovies.

I guess I will have to burp seven times to meet the quota!

Aunt Bea, are you getting a comedy routine ready? You're really on a roll!

Growing up there was always fish on Christmas Eve, usually whole trout for each adult. I go with fried haddock since I'm not big on whole fish. We also used to have beet soup and pickled herring.... Mmmm I might have to go be some of that and some rye bread.

The first I heard of this tradition was when Kathleen mentioned it in her thread. I think it sounds pretty cool. I know I won't be doing anything like it this Christmas Eve, but I'm not ruling out having some kind of fish. I hadn't really planned on anything yet.

Christmas Eve, nothing special. We watch Christmas movies and snuggle.
