We celebrate on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day...
The menus are traditional, just what I loved when I was a little girl!
Christmas Eve: big antipasto [cheeses, breads, salami, pickles, olives, tiny carrots, etc] and champagne, served at dusk while my family opens stockings and exchanges gifts.
Later...homemade lasagna...and Christmas cookies.
Christmas Day: a time for extended family to and friends to join us at the beach.
