As late as it is, we have no cookies for Santa so the boys + Mia are scrambling to make a batch to join the obligatory glass of milk. it is safe to say the boys are way too amped to drift off til about daybreak...and i'm hesitant to try and pin down the specific day.
I just had a discussion with my wife today as I've taken to saying "Happy Holidays" to other people. It has nothing to do with them or the fear of offense. My wife is Jewish and I, personally, haven't celebrated Christmas since... '84 or thereabouts. So I say "Happy Holidays" because it's my way of politely acknowledging their well wishes without explaining my own system of beliefs or partaking in theirs.
For the record my Mom invited those able to come on down for the 25th anyway and we ate our fill of breakfast meats. The big problem with marrying into a Jewish family is that their genes tend to dictate a lifestyle that shies away from pan-fried, salted goodness. Brunch with my folks means a few pounds of bacon, sausage, and scrapple to go along with the ham and cheese omelet.
