Christmas in my family is a two day affair, with an extended family celebration on Christmas Eve and a laid-back immediate family celebration on Christmas Day.
We celebrated at my aunt’s house and she made lasagna.
To my chagrin, both of these lovely lasagnas had meat in them.
However, I was in luck because both of my aunt’s kids are vegan so she made a smaller vegan lasagna.
The dessert spread was pretty impressive.
After my aunt’s we headed to the Christmas Pageant at our church. Every year, all of the little first graders play shepherds and angels. I even did it when I was in first grade and tonight, the last of my siblings sang! Little singing voices are heavenly. After church, we had one last stop at a family friend’s house for their annual Christmas party.
My tower of gifts is under the tree.
And cookies are out for Santa.
How do you spend Christmas Eve?
