Christmas 2012

Dining date: 12/25/12

Christmas is perhaps the oldest family tradition I know of (well, maybe Chinese New Year). It’s a very similar setup to Thanksgiving, but we’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. Lunch is at my aunt’s with my mother’s side of the extended family, while dinner is with my dad’s side at my grandmother’s.

In the early evening, we make the trip across the bay into San Francisco for dinner, a more ‘carnivorous’ affair.

I was so stuffed by the end of this, seriously. Maybe moreso than in past years, from what I can remember. But with so much good food and family, it’s hard not to gorge a bit.
