Christmas 2011

Dining date: 12/25/11

The Christmas setup has been the same as long as I’ve known, however the food has remained relatively consistent. Lunch is a buffet at my mom’s sister’s house, where they fully decorate the house in a warm Christmas decor.

Technically it’s a potluck, though my aunt makes the majority of items. My contribution were a few choice brews, fit for the season!

Dinner at my grandmother’s (dad’s side) isn’t quite as festive decor-wise, but the food is a little more serious with everyone sitting down around a long table with a large slab of red meat. My grandmother takes the lead on the food almost everything; my aunt made the turkey this year.
