Do you spend Christmas with your family or your friends?

Christmas Eve is very special to us. Our grandchildren are here, we all head to church to see the special play for children and attend service, after returning home we have the same meal my family did when they came from Europe. We'll generally open a couple gifts, my hubby reads "The Night Before Christmas" and we all try and remember the words, lol... or make up our own. Then the wee ones are whisked off to bed to wait for Santa. We generally hear his bells sometime during the night.. he's fast though, we've never caught him. The adults opens a few more gifts. Morning is fun with everyone running around, I make a buffet breakfast for everyone and we sit and enjoy each other's company. There's a lot of kibitzing that goes on among the adult children. A fun day filled with family and good memories.

I spend Christmas with both. I have several friends whose families are not here where we live. So I invite them to spend the Holidays with me and my family every year. It's a lot of fun that way and they still get to have a big family style Christmas. I consider my friends an important part of my life just like my family and enjoy celebrating with them both.
