This was the first year EVER that I didn’t celebrate with my family on Christmas Eve. We didn’t travel anywhere this year for Christmas, and while it was a bit strange for me to mess with tradition and not see my family, it was rather nice to not have to schlep a car load of kids and gifts across the miles and zoom home on Christmas Day in order to reach the next family gathering. Instead, we headed to Duluth over New Year’s weekend and celebrated our Christmas with my parents and bro and sis-in-law and kiddos on New Year’s eve.
