When I used to have family to share Christmas with, before everyone died and my son move a million miles away we always had our big meal on Christmas Eve. We never celebrated on Christmas Day, rather we are leftovers & stayed home. As a child, my Mom & Grandparents didn't participate in the Santa Clause coming thing. We were taught that Santa wad Mom & Dad & the stuff we saw on t.v. was made up. I got in trouble in the 2nd grade for telling classmates Santa was really their parents.

Our traditional meal every year was a baked turkey stuffed with homemade cornbread dressing. My Grandma always cooked it very slowly overnight so by morning it was done & falling apart. I will be having Very juicy that way. The desserts which were lots of pies, & fruit kolaches  and cake were mostly cooked after the turkey was taken out. Most years we also had a big ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, corn & whatever else could be thought of. I didn't learn how to make giblets gravy til I was married from my Mom in law. Jerry loves it, but my family alway threw the giblets out to the dogs & made white gravy for the dressing.

I  will be having Christmas supper here at the prison unit tomorrow night, I work through Christmas & again through the New Year. It will be whatever coworkers decide to bring. It isn't bad usually  but I sorely miss the yummy smells & tasty holiday meals of my youth! No reason to fix such a meal for just two of us, unless you want to count the wolf pack & the feathered moochers. LOL
