Being Jewish doesn’t mean you can’t “celebrate” Christmas.
Growing up I would celebrate by going over to my best friend/neighbor house on Christmas morning for presents and breakfast. I have some fond memories of us in our pj’s all those years.
When we lived in Nor Cal our friends Scott and Sheila would invite us to their Christmas Eve dinner party.
I always invite my non-Jewish friends to my Jewish events, so it only seems natural to attend their events.
So when Liza’s family invited my family over to celebrate, I was really excited. It’s been a while since we “celebrated”.
Thank you Liza for inviting us to your fabulous Christmas eve party! The food was delicious and the company was great!! The cherry on top was when I won the $20 Target gift card at the White Elephant gift exchange!
Christmas day started off with brunch at hubby’s great aunt and uncle’s home. Sarah loves visiting her aunt and uncle as she LOVES playing with their dogs.
Later that evening hubby and I went to the movies while my mother-in-law babysat Sarah. The Jewish tradition is to go out for Chinese dinner and a movie, but since we were so full from brunch we had a light dinner and went to the movies where we saw The Wolf of Wall Street.
It was a crazy movie, but it was nice to get out with my hubby and have some alone time.
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!
