    Re: Christmas Day

    It will be just the 2 of us humans plus Gator & TarButt begging at our feet like always. Even though it is just the 2 of us I always make a special meal, usually a nice turkey with all the trimmings and I HAVE to make Darling Daniel a pumpkin pie. And I do make a small plate up for both of the dogs too with a little turkey and gravy.

    Anyone that will be alone on Christmas day is welcomed at our crazy place. We just sit around watching Christmas movies all day and eating until we burst.

      Re: Christmas Day

      We will have 8 total. Our daughter and her family and my former sister-in-law. it is a fun day with the 3 grandsons. They have their own family time and join us by lunch and a big Christmas dinner. We really miss one member of the family, our son. He passed in 2007 at age 23 so we all keep each other's spirits up and have a great time.

I did all the cooking, and I loved it. Then Emily got sick and she had to be home. She was Nutrapenic at the time. So we went there and have been ever since. So, there will be 7 of us. Unless Dena wants to cross one of the bridges into NY. Then there will be 8.
              And Dee, You are correct in your meal times. In this area, Dinner was always the big meal, at Noon, and Supper was always around 5 or 6 P.M. in the evening. Those are farm hours in Western NY. But then city slickers came to town, turned the town into a small city, and went and changed our meals all around. Now, there is no supper, Dinner is anywhere from 6 to 9 P.M. Lunch is at Noon or 3, 2,or 1, depending on when people do or don't eat breakfast. Which of course is now 10 to 11 A.M. Unless of course, you do have to work, or go to school. Then Breakfast is 6 or 7 A.M. In my Grandmother's house, It was normal to have supper at 5, and "tea" at 3. I know that's not normal "tea" but Grammie said new country, new rules. Even though she was born here. She had a very English Mum! When my brother and I were young, we were supposed to call Grammie, Grandmother. By the time my first son was born, she was allowing Grandma. However, when Joey started talking she became his Grammie. Then I got away with it and so did my other son, and even my husband. How I miss her! She passed at age 96 in 1986, as sharp as a tack. My boys miss her too. I'm including my husband in with the boys. That's what she called the 3 of them, "My boys." My Mom had gone to the dark side and had Dinner at night. Grammie, didn't like that. lol Well, I will shut up for now. God Bless everyone, Love, hugs and Prayers, Jan L.
              It's good to know I'm not completely weird and someone else knows it as dinner and supper lol Here it's still dinner at noon and supper at 5, although there have been times that supper hasn't been until 8 or 9 if one of us was working a long shift. But on a normal day, it's dinner at noon and supper at 5. And all of the "older folk" like my grandparents are VERY rigid with that rule! lol And all of my grandmothers have been "Nan", but my Mom's dad is "Poppy" while my Dad's dad is "Granddad". And my mom called her grandmothers "Gramma". Everyone likes a different name I guess

                  Re: Christmas Day

                  Either Christmas day or Boxing day (the day after Christmas) our daughters and their husbands & kids and my mom & step dad will be at my place - that's 11. Then for New Years, my sister and her family come and we do it all over again (maybe not my mom & step dad). With that crowd it's 14 or 16!
                  We alternate every year (between Christmas Day or Boxing Day); on the alternate day, our daughters each go to their in-laws. My husband and I did that with our parents when we were younger and now our kids are doing it. Luckily in Ontario, Boxing Day is a holiday and most offices are closed.

                      Our group will probably be 10 for Christmas meal.

                        I am not a lover of Christmas since it has been so commercialized it doesn't even resemble what it is supposed to be about. I'd rather go to the beach than do a Christmas dinner. We usually just do a breakfast then a Christmas exchange and no dinner. I usually just serve munchie stuff (good munchies) all day. DD#1 is always doing ballet costumes for "A Christmas Carol" and is usually on the road and DD#2 married, SIL's family has big dinners. We will probably go to their house to celebrate DGS' first Christmas together and then do Christmas exchange here at our house when DD#1 can get here. What I used to do BIG TIME is Thanksgiving. Hopefully I can round up a few strays and get at least 12 around the table this year. Yep, give me Thanksgiving over Christmas any time.

                          I hope to have 8. 3 grandsons, daugther, son-in-law, and BFF (former SIL). Kids have their own Christmas and join us for lunch, gifts & dinner. Busy day.

                              Our plans are 'weather permitting'. If the weather cooperates, we should have eight - if it doesn't, there will be three of us (counting Molly).
