I enjoy traditions, but I also don't like to become so entrenched in them that new opportunities might be missed. Yesterday I made the traditional French Canadian pork pie that my family has always enjoyed at Christmas. We didn't necessarily eat it on a particular day, it could appear at any meal between Christmas eve and New Years. When this one came out of the oven, I thought it looked like it was adorned with the "holy gingerbread boy". If you are wondering, as Dennis A. did on facebook... yes that is a PYREX pie plate. It's the only pie plate I own right now. I managed to break every handmade pie plate that I owned. Someday I will find someone who can make me a new one.
This year Jeff and I decided to mix things up a bit on Christmas day. After a nice dinner with Jeff's family, we returned to Seagrove, fed the cat, and drove to Asheboro to see a movie. I always wondered who would go to the movies on Christmas day? I found out that the answer is LOTS of people! We saw the musical "Into the Woods". The movie was good and it was a great way to finish our day. I think we have started our own new tradition.
I hope that your holiday, however you choose to celebrate, was wonderful.
