I hope all of my Christmas-celebrating readers had a merry week! We celebrated one day early, but had a lovely Christmas all the same. Our best one ever, maybe! Lots of nibbles are missing from this post (candy! Chinese food!), but here are the basics from the week –

What is your Christmas dinner tradition?
