I can only post one photo (due to my lack of technical savvy when it comes to my travelli ng companion) so I've had to think about this. A traditional Christmas for me has always been about family and children. What the family eats isn't as important as the games we play. The games change depending on where we are and the age of the children.
But there is one tradition that hasn't changed since I was a child, the adults do the preparing and cooking and the children do the dishes. I can clearly remember drying tbe dishes after Christmas dinner, laughing with my brothers and sisters and us all competing to be the champion tea towel flicker. My children have had their turn, now it's my grandchildren who laugh and clown around in the kitchen.
