Then Grandpa got Alzheimer's and the celebration on Christmas Eve became hard on him. He would get confused surrounded by so many people. Then Grandpa died and Christmas Eve at their house stopped.
So we started a new tradition that year. Gary, Alex and I would go out for dinner at a Chinese Restaurant on Christmas Eve. And that tradition has stuck.
Tonight we went to PF Changs. Thankfully I made reservations as the restaurant was packed.
Merry Christmas from my family to you and your family. I hope Christmas this year is a day filled with love, joy and lots of new memories.
