Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is very special to my family. Years ago my mom and dad started a tradition that we all still keep today. As many Italians do, we eat a huge fish dinner with a pasta bar with different sauces Our family gathers to eat and celebrate.

This is the night we all exchange gifts with each other. We did this so on Christmas Day we could be with our own families. Our children didn't have to be torn away from their gifts on Christmas Day. The kids are grown now but we still do the same thing and look forward to it.

We have a new addition this year. When my sister married, she also got a son to share her life with. So we are back to having a young one around at Christmas.

We also have a new furry little guy.

So tonight we will eat, laugh, smile, breathe and thank God for the many blessings in our lives. We will put out cookies and milk out for Santa and we will celebrate the real meaning of Christmas...the birth of our savior.

May this holiday and all the year through carry blessings for all of you and your families.

Thank you for being a part of my life!

Merry Christmas to you all!
