Christmas Eve 2017

This Christmas Eve we wanted to be alone with each other. We typically would go to my parents’ friend’s house for dinner, but we wanted to try something different this year. We did go to 4 o’clock mass with my parents. Everyone shows up at church on Christmas and on Easter.  Thankfully we got there early and were able to get a seat. Some people were standing along the walls. I love Christmas Eve mass.

After church, my parents went home to get ready to go to their friend’s. We went home, and changed into comfortable PJs I started dinner. I made haluski, and kielbasa. It was my first time making haluski so I was a bit nervous. Then we sat down at the dinner table. The haluski turned out amazing. I can’t wait to make it again.

After dinner, we cleaned the kitchen together and watched It’s a Wonderful Life, which is a Christmas Eve tradition for me. It is weird, how something that it didn’t mean to become a tradition, just happens. My Christmas Eve would be incomplete without it.  Of course, I cried at the end. I loved this Christmas Eve and I can’t wait to celebrate many more with Andrew.
