As tradition would have it, each year our friends all get together and host a “chosen family” Christmas party. We all gather at one of our homes and do what any family would do when all coming together in a small space, we get loud. What started as couples getting together over the holiday having a nice quiet dinner together has now become a gathering of a small army of people, 18, while we do our very best to not disrupt the neighbors.
In the years previous whoever hosts the gathering makes the main course while the rest bring sides and desserts, now with the addition of 8 kids we’ve opted to cater the event, saving us stress over the holidays and of course more time to be together.
This is probably one of my favorite traditions and I hope it never dissolves with our group. Seeing them grow up together over the Holidays, and getting them to sit on one couch is just way too cute and something I want to recreate even when the couch is no longer big enough!
