Off the top, I can’t believe it is mid-December. I haven’t sent out one Christmas card or wrapped one present. Can we say gift card?

Christmas is now days away. Are you ready? Have you ever planned your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinner? Not me. I’m doing my planning today and getting supplies this weekend.

Since about 2008, Christmas Eve dinner was Chinese food with a big holiday spread for Christmas Day. Is that odd? Maybe? I would typically work Christmas Eve so the others who had kids could spend Christmas Eve getting ready for the big day. One year, I ran out of time to prepare a big feast. So, my Dad was like, “just pick up Chinese food.” Boom! New family tradition.

However, for the Christmas feast, if you are tired of the traditional holiday meal. Here are some great options.
