Today is Christmas Eve. Where did the time go? This holiday season was a complete blur. Between work, this blog, and the usual holiday stuff (shopping, cards, decorations, parties…) I feel like I haven’t stopped moving since Thanksgiving. Yesterday, I took an early morning train home to Cape Cod with my sister and her husband. By the time I got home, I thought I could drop dead. Today, I slept in until 1pm. A solid twelve hours of sleep. My family was slightly horrified (I had warned them!) but I’m finally feeling human again.
Our Christmas Eve is always spent at my parents’ restaurant. We’ll enjoy a long, delicious, boozy meal… in the company of family, friends, and old customers who have been eating their forever – as long as 34 years ago, when it first opened. After dinner, we usually sit around the fire, sipping a cup of my grandfather’s eggnog. It’s the perfect dessert – so thick and creamy that you need a spoon to drink it.
What is your Christmas Eve tradition?
