Christmas almost kills me and this Christmas will be no exception. Christmas Eve
church service at 6 p.m. then the whole family goes to my son's for hor d'oevres and appetizers, desserts, drinks and whatever.
Christmas morning everyone is here at my house for a huge brunch.
Christmas dinner is at my duaghter's. She does wonderful dinners. Next day is leftovers of everything we ate before that.
I can't believe I'm not dead from the calories, fat and cholesterol. But, I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. I love being surrounded by my family at Christmas time.

We stay home for most of the day, then go to a friend's home for dinner, a couple of blocks away. about 8 yrs ago, when we first moved here, we hit on a sharing of holidays that works really well. Lots less stress than when we lived near family.

home and away.

home in the morning, then i made a deal with a co-worker (shhh ) so that i don't have to go in until noon. then dw and my boy will join me; we'll go see the tree, and then find an open restaurant for dinner.

I've seen Home Alone too many times to tell ANYONE what my plans are. Keep 'em guessing.

I have no Christmas plans. Last year, I took my mom out for Chinese food and she got very sick at the restaurant--it was awful.

So most likely home for me.

Christmas Eve we will be at home with dd and family, my cousin and family and hopefully my mom and break bread (oplatki). Since my grandmother is no longer with us we are just having appetizers instead of the meal we used to have We may stop over bil's house for a little bit. Depends on how I feel.
I will be having Christmas dinner here and the same people except for my cousin will be here also.

Christmas Eve at Mom and Dads, Christmas Lunch (formally brunch) at our house and Chistmas night for cocktails and finger foods at my uncles house. Guess I better buy a bigger belt
