Its Christmas...do you have to be so vulgar?

So, our Christmas dinner. On Christmas day me and the other one will be going to her mum's for roast turkey and all the trimmings and then going to my mum and dad's in the evening. My sister is working Christmas day (she works as security at Manchester Airport) and my brother is at his gf's so on Boxing Day we will be having Christmas Day II at my mum and dad's house. On that day we'll be starting with cream of herb soup which is commonly known as Christmas soup in our house followed by Turkey/Ham/Pork with the trimmings then chocolate mousse/trifle/christmas pudding. If I can stand then its onto the alcohol!

Erm...its just the day after Christmas day...26th December...the name comes from that day being when all the charity boxes in churches are traditionally emptied. Its a public holiday so if it falls on a sunday, like this year, we get another one on the Monday.

Wow! I love the variety of responses we got!

I didn't mention that Christmas breakfast for us is always ham and potica.

Potica is a Solvenian nut bread with a spiraled cinnamon walnut filling. Those of you who followed the Big Fat Gay Disney Wedding thread will remember that we had it the morning we got married, as well.

It's a family tradition and I've never had Christmas without it. It's backbreaking to make it, and I'm not nearly the baker my mom was. I had a rough time with it this year and was frustrated by not being able to call her and ask questions. When half of the batch didn't rise properly, I literally sat down and cried. I'm really glad that the other half of the batch turned out okay, so we'll have it for Christmas. I'm afraid I'd have kept trying over and over until I got it right. I'm holding tight to a lot of Christmas traditions this year just for the sake of doing them. Hoping that they'll comfort me so that this year won't be as hard as I think it will be. I hope it works and I'm not just going through the motions . . .

Every holiday after losing a parent isn't easy. After losing my Dad, Christmas wasn't quite the same. It was different, wonderful and had a great time, but it was just different. There's not a Christmas that passes where I don't think of him and wish he was there. It does get easier with every passing year. But one thing we did, like you are doing, is sticking to traditions. It helps. Trust me.

I have to agree - The Holidays are a big reminder of who we lost! I try and carry on the tradition of my Father's family on Christmas Eve with the fish.. I lost both of my parents before I was 28. It does get easier but you never forget and yes, they are different too.

Thanks, guys. Sorry to be such a downer on what was such a fun thread.

Back to the Holiday Revelry!

You're not being a downer, you're just be honest with your feelings. Trust me, we have NO problem getting a thread back onto being frivilous and silly within seconds.

It use to be my biggest pet peeve until I got to know everyone. Now I find it quite endearing.

Don't you think that's what the holidays are -
a mix of happy and sad - reflective, introspective mixed with hope, joy and revelry.

Think of christmas carols - they are a mix of all emotions.
