For many years, we as a family have celebrated Christmas together on Christmas Eve day. Then, on Christmas, we have a quiet day, including a special visit to our friends at the nursing home.
Someone asked what we typically give for gifts. We work to give practical gifts such as clothes, things in the kitchen for Mom, tools for the guys, sewing items for the girls, etc.
A special highlight was going to the nursing home Christmas afternoon. Many had visitors or were gone to be with family, but we still found several to bring into the dining room so that we could sing carols and visit.Â We also brought fresh chocolate chip cookies to the workers.
