I love Christmas Eve. Growing up I spent every Christmas with my Dad in Michigan, and we always had such fun and quirky traditions.
Such as: After going to the candlelight Christmas Eve service at church, we always went to Burger King.
Not exactly the classiest of places to spend Christmas Eve, but this was tradition with my Step-mom and her girls long before she met my dad, and reportedly they went to Burger King following the service every year since it was the only thing in their town open that late on Christmas Eve. Anyways, it become tradition, and so still to this day, even with many more options now available, they still go there. I'm not sure what I would eat if I went there today. Maybe a salad? Hold the croutons, chicken and dressing?
What, if any, quirky or non-traditional Christmas or Holiday traditions do you have?
This year, my brother and I will be back in Colorado with my mom and Leila. I don't know yet what we will be doing for dinner tonight. For Christmas dinner, we have decided to skip the traditional fare and just make our favorites instead. This makes me very happy as not only do I feel like Thanksgiving was just yesterday, but it's so rare that I get to have my mom to make me my favorite dinner!
I am so excited to see and smell the snow tonight, cuddle up with my puppy and spend the night trying to go to sleep, knowing that in the morning, Santa will have come.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, whatever you might be doing and wherever you might be.
