If you’re like me, today you’re busy cooking or doing prep work to cook tomorrow. Or maybe you’re out doing last minute shopping. Perhaps you’re on the road to grandma’s house or the kids’ house. Whatever you’re doing, it’s probably not a lot of blog hopping. That’s why I especially thank and say welcome to anyone stopping by today or tomorrow.
For me, the day of Christmas Eve is a cook and prep day. The more I can get done today, the more I’ll enjoy tomorrow.
Christmas Eve is the time to gather in the living room, read The Night Before Christmas or the Christmas story, and force the kids to drink eggnog. Yep, that’s right. I said “force.” No matter what recipe I try, they hate eggnog. Even if I add in a candy cane. Even if, now that they’re older, I add a bit of alcohol. They hate eggnog. But, hey, it’s a Ginger tradition. We have eggnog. They complain and leave their glasses for Dad to drink.
Last year, I gave up. No eggnog. No complaining.
I was wrong. They then complained that there was no eggnog to complain about. Turns out they hate eggnog, but look forward to the tradition of complaining about said eggnog.
Do you have Christmas Eve traditions?
