    We have the extended family get together for Christmas Eve brunch, that way everyone can celebrate how they like and no one feels like they should be with the other set of in laws or whatever.

    Used to be we’d make the Norwegian staple, lefse, to celebrate, but since I don’t see my dad as much, we sort of dropped the ball on that. I told my daughter about our lefse Christmas Eve tradition, and she is begging me to do it this year! (It takes a million hours to make.) BUT, I think it’d be great to get her started on our lefse tradition.
