Re: Do you like to dress up on Christmas Day?
Have to say I am kind of surprised by all the "no big deal" about Christmas on the multiple threads. Christmas has always been a big deal in my family. Yes we have big family get together and meal. Yes we dress up for it. Not suit and tie or formal evening wear dresses but close - our best not wedding/funeral formal. Yes we semi stress on what is the best most thoughtful or needed present we can get for all family members. Yes we go overboard. Christmas is a big deal - see all/most family members, show our best, brag about accomplishments, share plans and dreams, and how maybe we can help each other.
Desert is a long process - as we have a tradition of tell a story / update family on life this year. We alternate, youngest, oldest, and move back and forth until we get to the closest ages which seems to always deliver some of the most spirited discussion as they engage each other. The younger look on paying close attention and the old smile and think, and maybe give advice later. It is a very bonding cool time. I love Christmas.
I sincerely hope all here have a great one.
