not all about gifts. Time with family, remembering the true purpose of the season, and spending time together over a good meal is just as important — especially when you have Christmas dinner like we do. My family’s tradition of a haystack meal on Christmas is something I look forward to every year. It’s the perfect way to come together because it’s not overly complicated or formal.
