Journal Your Christmas, Day 18

I'm on a roll tonight! :) I think this does it for me, at least for a while. I'll probably catch up over the weekend. :)

Here's today's text: "Christmas dinner is not a big deal in my family. I don’t have any recollection of sitting down on Christmas Day and doing something big. I remember having pizza most Christmas Eves, and wandering around the neighborhood in Florida, with luminaria lining the sidewalks. Some people, including my in-laws, have a very fancy meal, and so some years, this becomes part of our tradition. This year, we’ll be dining with them on the 25th. The menu includes pork tenderloin and a fennel-potato gratin, as well as pecan pie and mincemeat pie. I offered to bring a starter and a salad. I am thinking about making mushroom turnovers. I’ve never made them before in my life, but they sure look tasty! We’ll see how it goes!"

I love Christmas dinner and I learn to treasure it even more each year I grew older.
