The Best Parts of the Holidays Time Together and Great Food
For me, this time of year is when Thanksgiving and Christmas blend together, and it’s not only because they take place one after the other. My family and I usually do the same thing on both holidays, which is spending as much time as we can together and enjoying each other’s company. I know a lot of families do the same during this time of year, but with our family’s tradition of meeting once a week, we have the pleasure of being in each other’s lives quite often. Friends always comment on how impressed they are with how much time we spend together, but it’s very natural and enjoyable for us. During the Christmas holidays, we don’t have a set schedule we always follow. This year, we’re going to spend part of Christmas with the in-laws in Nashville. They’re having an anniversary this year, so we’ll get together and celebrate with them. One family tradition we have is that each year, on Christmas Eve, my side of the family gets together and heads to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for dinner. If you’ve never been to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, I highly recommend that you try it if you have the time. I’m always looking forward to sitting down with my family and having their signature dish. The food is always excellent, but spending time with the family and having a good time is what makes the evening truly special.

When it comes to Christmas dinner, my family has another tradition. My brother and brother- in-law are master grillers, and every year, they cook us a delicious beef tenderloin. My wife and I help out by bringing a side dish, but the two of them are in charge of cooking the main entree. They spend hours preparing it to make sure it’s cooked to perfection. I’m not exactly sure when the tradition started, but my family has always had it, and it continues to be passed down. Whether you have an established family tradition or are starting a new one, I hope that all of you have a fun and family-filled December. Happy Holidays!
for Christmas dinner. We always have a good time being with one another, eating dinner, and exchanging and opening our gifts. I’m also looking forward to having my daughters home for the holidays. It has been strange not having them at home, but because we’re spending time apart now, it’s always such a joy when I do get to see them. I love to hear about their lives and just catch up as a family.
Then on Christmas Day, we’ll continue the tradition of heading over to my mom’s house
