I quite agree. I have felt a mix of emotions since the very beginning of this topic. While I have enjoyed reading it, I also feel a fair amount of envy for the good hosts here. I wish that I was one of them. There is a skill to that with which I have not been blessed.

We shall spend Christmas Day watching the Disney parade and going to the Contemporary Jewish Museum, which we have not yet been to. We have no family nearby so it will be just the two of us, but that is not necessarily a bad thing considering that big family gatherings can sometimes bring out the worst in people.

I work overnights... the family decided to eat without me since I had to sleep... they didn't save anything for me. I ended up ordering a pizza. Blah.

I feel similarly about the cha-cha, electric slide, and mambo #5

How rude!

And nothing leftover? That's a holiday crime!

For us Christmas meal depends on which family is hosting (parents vs one of my siblings).... but always always always our meal starts with a little Italian flare of homemade turkey cappelletti soup, homemade lasagna, then onto the more traditional turkey, homemade cranberry sauce ((mom would never forgive us if we didn't make homemade lol)) and some sort of potato (mashed or roasted). if it's one of my siblings they make some sort of veg and the meal ends there other than desserts.

On the other hand when my parents cook the table is full of food; enough food for us and the neighborhood. My parent's house at Christmas is always known as the house where extended family and friends show up throughout the day for food. LOL

It's a Commonwealth thing Mike...

It's also the day -- back in the day the wealthy would 'Box up' stuff they didn't want and pass it onto the poor.

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 . . .
Yes it's hard to keep up those traditions. There's numerous dishes we used to have at Christmas from my hubby's side that there's no way I can reproduce as there was no real recipe book and if there is they are in Portuguese or so convoluted I'd be lost. I know I can find recipes out there and make feijoada, bacalhau or baccala to me in Italian but I save that for my parents as I can't stand it lol or empanadas but they simply won't be his mom's.

My family does the best to really pull my hubby into our traditions as much as possible so he as as much family comfort as possible. This Christmas was the second Christmas without hubby's mom and my grandmother who passed a week apart so it was definitely easier than last year.

I am glad one batch turned out
