SO for as long as I can remember, my mom's side of the family has gathered on Christmas Eve to eat chili, exchange gifts, sing Christmas carols, read the Christmas Story and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
Some years there's a crowd, there are 12 of us cousins so usually a few of us are able to make it. Sometimes some of our kids make it and sometimes it's just me & my cousin Robin along with our parents. Yeah, I know, lame, huh. But that's what makes it a tradition, right? You do it even if it's only one or two or three there. Grandma & Grandpa would be proud of us!
