On Christmas Eve each year, my parents host a dinner at their house. Being an Italian household, there is an abundance of seafood and pasta. After dinner, the men will usually play poker, the women will talk, and the children will either watch television or play video games.
I brought my Gamecube. I’m not as big a fan of poker. B-)
Also, each year there is an unspoken contest between me and my sister. We each have a stocking up, and each year I put a walnut in her stocking. Occasionally I’ll find it back in my stocking, and we try to avoid being the one with the walnut on Christmas Day. I just checked, and I’m still winning. Another aspect of the game is that since it is never announced, it’s always part of the fun to see if I can make it to Christmas without her even being aware that the game has started.
