My Wife and I have a very few traditions at Christmas.  Tonight we will eat fish chowder out of our mugs in honor of the traditional fast on Christmas Eve.  Tonight, I’ll serve midnight mass at St. Mary’s in Chinatown, Washington, DC, and we will come home, forgo the usual drinking and singing (my wife is very pregnant) and go to sleep.  In the morning, I’ll go serve mass again, and then I’ll come home and open presents with Lydia.  Then, we’ll have bacon and eggs and head over to her folks’ house for more presents and Christmas dinner.   In the meantime, I’ll call my folks and my grandmother.

Anyone wish to share their Christmas traditions?
