What is chiristmas to you?

Our Christmas dinner was always a mouth-watering-experience, consisting of a spread of vegetables and baked or fried fruits or ambrosia along with the turkey and homemade gravy. The homemade stuffing was delicious, and real mashed potatoes drowned in creamy butter topped it off. Don't forget the corn! Once my mother forgot; never again. Dessert was always homemade apple pie with whipped cream or a slice of cheddar cheese and the choice of pumpkin pie or a sliver of each. Somehow the entire family squeezed chairs around a huge table in the tiny dining room because it was absolutely necessary for everyone to sit at the same table, of course the children had their own table for several years as there were so many people gathered around. I have a vegetarian brother who has inspired several new vegie dishes and the added option of fish for Christmas - yum. I'm not a fan of ham, my mom makes that for Boxing Day now so I can have left over Turkey if I prefer. My husband makes a rather nice stuffing and twice we have cooked our own Christmas Dinners because one year my parents were out of town and the other time, we were away and there was ham for dinner so I insisted we cook a turkey dinner when we came home. On Christmas Eve, I bring over my famous dips to snack with and my mom and dad team up to serve up a variety of tasty buffet snacks and wraps to the thirty or more people who pass through for the evening. In many ways Christmas Dinner is the same as our Thanksgiving Dinner, but with more people stopping by and Christmas music playing in the background.

For me, Christmas was celebrated on every 25 December anually. Therefore, December is a Holy month for me. Wht we have to do during this holy month is reduce our bad behaviour especially in front of God. Always, be patience for every situation we face. Christmas was also about Joyful.
