  • I have always cooked at home, for 40 years. Now my sons live 4 hours away and 3 hours away. We're retired, they work, one on most holidays, so it just doesn't make sense anymore. We go to one son's house, and the other joins us there. This is the first Christmas we'll do this. At first I was sad, but now I'm going to enjoy it. My sons and I will do the cooking, and the daughter-in-law and fiance will do desserts ahead of time. A changing of the guard.

  • Depends on the year. This year we're expecting snow, so we'll probably stay at home.

  • We go to relatives to eat. This is our first christmas together, I have never had a place of my own that was big enough to entertain my family.
