Christmas dinner - SO and I don't have any family close so we invite all of our friends that don't visit their family for Christmas and we do a big meal as our gift to them.
Since I was little, my family has always cooked lasagna on Christmas Eve. And we watch Christmas movies until 2am.
And if we are talking New Year's...many of my friends are from Mexico and have taught me that you have to shove as many grapes in your mouth during the countdown to the new year. And the number of grapes you get in your mouth, is the number of new year wishes that will come true. I think its fun...but it sure is hard to give someone a kiss after all that
