Did you have a nice Christmas? I did. We had a lovely day with my in-laws. The kids took a few hours to find all of their presents, and the house was filled with laughter and love all day long. It was a wonderful celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
This week, we have a couple more traditional meals to end the holiday season. For New Year’s Eve, we spend the evening playing games, putting together a puzzle, and grazing on finger foods. According to my Polish heritage, New Years Day dinner must have pork and sauerkraut to ensure a prosperous year. I don’t really believe in these old wives’ tales, but I’m all over any reason to have fresh kielbasa for dinner!
