To all of you I wish a

The weekend was a bit hectic, with shopping for Christmas Eve the arrival of son and grandson DIL will follow today.

Besides running around for food which was in itself a challenge,  the shop where I went was so packed as if people feared a 3rd WW !

Now it seems to me that everybody only thinks of food, and expensive wine which at least here in Belgium is so important. Whoever I talked to these two days was "What do you eat on Christmas Eve (or day) " ? The hit here is "foie gras" which is quite expensive and in my eyes disgusting when you read where it comes from and how it's made. But it is a "must" for Christmas. I don't buy it and nobody in my family eats it.

We always celebrate on Christmas Eve and while drinking an aperitif we open the gifts and after that we have our Christmas meal, and  on Christmas day it starts again !

So these to days I spent with preparing everything I just made a break yesterday afternoon when I went to see son and grandson at his friend's house and forgot to take pictures !

Lovely Christmas card! Lovely photo of you and grandson!You two look smashing!
I see myself as belonging to those who eat to live not live to eat. And yet, I also get caught in this food 'frenzy' preceding holidays. We go with the flow.
Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Santa's expression in that last toon says it all: "I'm screwed."

Merry Christmas!

LOL LOL I love those cartoons :-)
I wouldn’t eat foie gras, either, given how it’s made.
Merry Christmas to you and all your family. Have s wonderful time together!
