Writer's Block: Tonight, tonight

If you celebrate Christmas, what will you do this evening? If you don't, will you still do something festive or is it just another night?


On Christmas Eve, formerly, we did French-Canadian Christmas. Which is basically réveillon without the church going part. We get together and eat tourtière, sometimes with a bûche de Noël for dessert. Our bûches aren't so sophisticated - we make ours out of chocolate wafer cookies sandwiched in a big long line with whipped cream between them. Then you cover it with whipped cream and put it in the fridge and the wafers get all soft and cake-like. Then you cut it at an angle and it looks like stripes. When we were little, we were allowed to open one present on Christmas Eve, usually something relevent to activities (one year I got a dress to wear to the party we were going to, another year I got Pictionary to play after dinner). Now that we're older, we are more calm about it and can contain ourselves until Christmas morning.

The past few years, though, since Adam and Amalie usually go to visit her family on Christmas day, we've been having our English Canadian Christmas on Christmas Eve and our French-Canadian Christmas on Christmas day.

So tonight, Adam, Ama and possible her brother George are coming for English dinner. Then tomorrow Adam and Ama will come in the morning for stockings and presents and then head out to visit Ama's family in the Torontoish area.
