Advent Calendar - Christmas Eve

A post for the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

Christmas Eve is the time for the mince pie to be laid out ready for the visit from Father Christmas. Apart from that I don't remember doing anything else out of the ordinary either then or now.

This year was a little different, as today my parents popped round for a turkey lunch. The menu was roast turkey with feta and bacon stuffing, home-baked bread, home-grown salads and potatoes, home-grown strawberries, and a ridiculous number of chocolate-themed desserts (choc-mallow fudge, jaffa truffles, plum pudding truffles, chocolate pretzels, chocolate pinwheel cookies, and, erm, chocolates - I have an awful lot of chocolate cookbooks and couldn't narrow it down any further!)

This Christmas, may all my blog readers and fellow Wing genealogists have a plentiful table, and wonderful family and friends gathered round to share it with. And perhaps some spare time over the Christmas holidays to share some quality time with your ancestors, as well.
