Christmas eve. we had dinner, then we were allowed to open one gift. We went to midnight mass. Christmas day we opened the rest of the presents on Christmas morning, went to mass. Had dinner, some years it was turkey, some years ham others a roast, pork or beef. Of course vegetables and biscuits. Desert was pumpkin, apple pie and mincemeat which I didn't like and still don't. Let's hear what tradition your family had at Christmas! I'm not Catholic anymore so we dont go to midnight mass.
