Well our polar bear got her wish. It snowed on Christmas for several hours leaving about 4 inches everywhere. Fortunately the ice largely melted, so we don’t have to deal with a slippery surface under the new fallen snow. All the men are out with their snowblowers, happy to get out of the house for a bit, away from the noise and commotion of the kids and grandkids.
True to my 29% Jewish genes, we are having Chinese food for Christmas. Actually, we had Chinese food for Christmas long before I took the Ancestry DNA test. I had discovered that my paternal grandmother was Jewish from my own research. She had never shared that with us, but that was her story. The DNA test this fall merely affirmed my findings. Apparently you aren’t an even 25% from each parent, hence the 29% Jewish genes.
Chinese food not only solves the problem of cooking on Christmas, but also allows the vegetarians and omnivores to be equally delighted with the offerings. And you can’t beat the clean-up!
Merry Christmas to all.
