Holidays mean so many different things to each of us, I'm sure. What holidays do you celebrate during the months of December and January? For my family, it's Christmas and New Year's, though Christmas is the bigger headliner. Over the years, as the older generation of my parents and in-laws, and almost all my aunts and uncles have passed on...and cousins have dispersed, it's not the big family event that it once was, however we usually invite friends and a neighbor or two to share in our Christmas Day meal. This year, will be quite different for us - as our offspring is heading off to spend the holidays in Japan! So we've opted to forgo our traditions as well and will head down the road share a meal in the Austrian tradition - carp and stollen! What are you all up to and/or do you just head to the movies? There's something very nice sounding about that...no crowds and there are some good ones coming out here in the New York area.
