Happy Christmas Eve! This is my favorite day of the year. You see, we are part Swedish (note the goat):
God Jul means Merry Christmas in Swedish. Anyway, since my Mom's dad was Swedish, we let our Swedish selves go free at Christmas. On Christmas Eve we have a smorgasbord. Comme ca:
Please note the Japanese plates and Santa Claus place mats (you can sort of make them out?...no, not really. I apologize). We are an eclectic, worldly family. But not the bad worldly. The good kind. (That's a thing, right?...)
Pickled herring also made an appearance at dinner.
Also, my Dad served his mission in Germany so we've got some German influence in our Christmas, too. Naturlich.
So go to bed soon, and sleep tight! Santa Claus is coming to town tonight!
