Usually, we have the in-laws over for a take out dinner on Christmas Eve and exchange gifts after dinner. Then they come over again the next day for the big meal. Then we get together again the next day for left over feast.
Not this year. So working around schedules such as my son weird Railway shifts, we are having take out for just our household on Christmas Eve.
Christmas morn my wife is going to prep 2 smaller turkeys and take one over to her parents for them to finish cooking there. She will also drop off a lot of other food and stuff.
In early afternoon, we will be Zooming with the in-laws while doing gift exchange. That is going to be a really weird experience. Then we will each have our separate dinners. We havent really discussed Boxin day but I guess both households will just do their own thing with leftovers. Maybe some more Zooming.
Sometime during these three day my son will work one or two shifts at crazy hours.
My wife has done almost daily zooming for work but I have never done it.
My son and daughter are in their mid 20s and still living with us and we wouldnt have it any other way. Specially now
We are usually real sticklers for going by rules and laws, but we will be bending it a little by having our sons girlfriend join us.
