  •  When I was a kid, (9+ / 0-)

    ...our traditional Christmas Eve dinner was a trip to the pizza parlor. Then we'd head over to my aunt-uncle-and-cousins' for a few hours. They unwrapped presents on the Eve, while we did it the next morning. Two Christmases in one. I loved that. :-)

    •  Simple meal for Christmas eve (7+ / 0-)

      More elaborate for Christmas itself. That's the way we always did it as well. For one, we often worked Christmas eve, and if not that was the day for visiting family. We didn't visit family on Christmas, if they wanted to visit they came for us. Plus my grandmother always slept over Christmas eve so she could be there when we opened gifts.
      Now my mom visits the weekend before (she was here Saturday) and not sure when Dad's parents are coming over. Probably at some point in the next week or so. Dad's birthday is on the 30th, so they may come for that. Caedy is going to her parents for dinner tonight.
