We will go to mass to celebrate the birth of the Christ child. This used to be at midnight, but now mass is earlier in the evening here in our small town. There may even be some snow on the ground to make it feel and look like Christmas here in the midwest.
After mass, we will eat our traditional meal of pierogi. It is not a true Christmas Eve meal eaten in Poland. I think that involves serving fish as one of the courses.
This year I served them the day after Thanksgiving when all my children and their families were together here at our home and had an early gift exchange. But I saved a few for tonight for the hubby and me to enjoy.
Christmas is a time for nostalgia. My cousin always sends me a box of candy from the store where my mom used to work as a teenager in Milwaukee. I get out my dolls, bringing back childhood memories of family and tradition. (The doily upon which I placed my dolls is one of the many cotton thread crochet items my grandma, mom and aunties made.)
I hope you have a wonderful holiday and are creating and celebrating your own traditions.
Tomorrow I'll be back with a Santa Claus post.
