I shall have family and friends come over tonight, tomorrow thru Friday too.

I am working in the kitchen, preparing the Christmas dinner for the family. For the next three days, we live in a festive mood. I am cooking, A huge Pigs leg in the oven right now, Um I can smell the wine in it,, chosen by the boys. Its not a meal if there is no meat for them. Potato salad, maccaroni salad with eggs, and beets in pink color;  a home made Salad, yellor rice with Guandules, empanadas with ground meat inside, Sausage in sauce; Desert, a cheese cake, coffee, wine, IRISH CREME Liqueur, gingerale for the man to toast with mix of liquor, I tell you, there is nothing like celebrating life, Christ and the gift of ones family and friends. Bono is the icing on the cake. God left the best for last.

 A movie to watch together.

 A prayer together before the meal. Music, merengues, bachatas, U2, Raulin Rodriguez music, Juan Luis Guerra y 440 music, Johnny Ventura merengues, Rolling Stones, and Christmas songs to hit the nail on the head, the Most important reason we are celebrating, the birth of our Christ, the one who was, is sinless, a perfect sacrife to atone for our sins. We must remember God above all things, God always first, then my family and the Prince, then my friends, and the world.

Much the same as Zhivvy for me. That is of course if I can get out to the English shop this morning! Still snowing and conditions are not driver friendly at all!

 

Christmas crackers, don't forget to mention the really bad jokes in them!

 

I'm not sure about starters though this year. Family tradition has it that I'll serve smoked salmon but I'm a bit sick of the stuff so might serve seared scallops on pan-fried black pudding slices (sound weird but it's fab). 

for appatizers, we just heated up some gormet frozzen stuff like mini quesh, rasberry-brie puffs, and parmasien brushetta. also, we had shrimp and cocktail sause, and cheese and crackers! yum!

My family didn't celebrate Christmas when I was growing up so not sure of traditions as such but hubsy now tends to cook a roast dinner usually goose, we had  turkey for the first time last year and this year we are trying lamb, he does all the trimmings such as roast potatoes, parsnips, sprouts etc This year I made a Christmas pudding for the first time with a friend and we'll have that with brandy cream.  Hubs is quite a  fan of Jamie Oliver these days and has made some lovely roasts for Christmas the last couple of years.

[quote name='surrenders wrote:

  This year, I'm thinking about making cupcakes to celebrate Christ's birth,but the catch is before the candles on them are blown out, the participant has to make a wish that benefits someone else.

What a great idea having cupcakes, or a birthday cake.  You could always just act as his surrogate apostles and blow them out yourselves tongue.gif

  Yeah I decided to put a fun-twist on Jesus' Birthday and since my nephews/niece love blowing-out candles, it will be a win,win situation!!
