This year, my part in the Christmas Eve prep involves resting. While I feel a little guilty about being useless, it’s nice to do little besides lay around and drink water for a change. I’m especially happy not to be traveling this year. Traveling is stressful enough, but when you’re under the weather it’s especially rough. 

Christmas Eve is going to be pretty mellow, with just my immediate family for dinner and then maybe some extended family for dessert and drinks later on. Tomorrow we’ll have a full house, though, so my mom has been working on stuff all week. Here’s a an apple pie she made yesterday—this is one of my dad’s favorites, so a family tradition. 

How are you spending your Christmas Eve or Chanukah?
