Have a Holly Jolly Christmas Part 1

Christmas Eve was a wonderful celebration or family and togetherness. My mother once again outdid herself. Her house looked amazing and the food was even better.Christmas Eve has always been a huge party in our family. My dad's mom was a huge fan of celebrating on Christmas Eve and when she passed away right before Christmas in 1984 my mother took it over.

This year she continued with her tradition and made stuffed flounder, shrimp scampi, friend calamari, smelts, clams, spaghetti with clam sauce and mussels with hot sauce. AMAZING! 

My cousins

I was not happy with my outfit selection. I looked extremely yucky.

Santa came!!!!
Santa was extremely generous!

Our family was extremely happy with their handmade gifts.  That makes me super happy!

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday.
I hope it was as relaxing and as fun as our holiday was.

Looks like a great Christmas Eve! My mom is almost all Italian (not quite 100%) and they did the 7 fishes when she was growing up but has never done it with us. She does make an amazing lasagna and homemade sauce three days before though so that's our "Italian tradition" and I think you looked great, not yucky!
