The Humble Housewife wants to hear about or see a holiday tradition, recipe or event. I'm gonna talk about Christmas because I. Love. Christmas!
We usually put our tree up shortly after Thanksgiving. The day after, if I can manage it. I love decorating the tree. And we traditionally have an artificial tree, though we did try a real one the first year we were back in Alabama. It sucked ass. Yes, I hated it. Plus I don't know how hubby ever got it home since after he got it here I realized it must have originally been headed towards Rockefeller Plaza. It was one huge tree. Sucky, but big.
Since we are pretty much turkeyed out from Thanksgiving, we usually just have different appetizers on Christmas Eve. Last year my sister and her family came up and we had quite a spread. We had enough food for an army! Hot food, cold food, salty, sweet, prepackaged, homemade. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. This year should be more low key since we are officially broke and that big spread? Major $$$$$$$$$$.
