My mother takes particular pride in setting the table for Christmas Eve Dinner, and rightly so. Every year it's something different, but there is always lots of shininess and warmth. She has boxes full of little sparkly stars and angels and fairy dust.

Worth a mention: the tradition in Poland is to put hay on the table or under the cloth- hay, of course, because Jesus was born in a manger.

Bonus: family photos, first one taken by me, second by my sister so I could be in it. Merry Christmas!

  1. I love the hay on the table. :) It's actually quite modern looking. ;)
