My family always gets together on Christmas Eve, this year at my sister Michele's house. I look forward to this,as it has always been a big day. Since 1963, my parents said we should buy for one othe kid. A sensible move, as with seven, who could afford to buy for all on a child's income (read: none).
We have continued through all the kid's kids. For the past three years and today, it is a Yankee Swap which is a blast. Too many rules to explain, but really fun. For food, it is pot luck, and I'm bringing the tomato bruschetta which will be served on a toasted bread (easy to make).
Finally, since we have a fake tree, I have decorated out potted Rosemary bush. We brought this hearty potted herb plant in in October, and it has a nice piney smell. So decorations were needed, and voila: a holiday plant with Christmas style. Merry Christmas!
