In honour of US Thanksgiving tomorrow...
1. What holidays does your family celebrate? Only ones pertaining to your religion? Only the holidays that are tradition where you currently live? Something else?
I celebrate Christmas Eve now that I live in Spain. I also celebrate Christmas Day but when I was growing up Christmas Eve was the day to get the house ready for Christmas and to do last minute shopping. Here, I have dinner with my In-laws.
On Christmas, I make a huge traditional American brunch and stay at home with DH.
I also celebrate 3 Kings Day now too. We exchange gifts on Xmas but have stockings on 3 kings.
2. Do you serve 'traditional' foods on these holidays or a more modern twist? (Ie switching mashed potatoes for garlic mashed cauliflower/root vegetables)
At my house, we eat traditional American food. At my In-laws they just do tapas.
3. What holiday traditions that you grew up with do you want to pass to your DC?
Everything. My parents went crazy with holidays traditions when I was kid. I love the month of December. Baking cookies, visiting Santa, decorating the house, shopping.
