This year, we spent the first part of our day having lunch (I made Menudo), working on our puzzle, and just relaxing. In the evening, we went over to friends house for Fajitas, decorating gingerbread cookies, and hanging out. We always have fun when we hang out with our friends, but there was nothing "holidayish" about the evening. It was just friends hanging out and having fun.
Sometimes I think we should do something that would bring the festiveness back to the holidays, but I have no idea what that something would be. What do you do to make your holidays special?
