Holiday Traditions

My Name's Ginger Corriell. Our family tradition started in England - my husband was in the Airforce at the time and we were stationed there. My birthday happens to be Christmas Day, which really sucks if I'm being honest! Every year we had to split our day between visiting my family and then his, and it was like my birthday didn't exist. 

Now that we were so far away, we were free to do whatever we wanted on Christmas. So, in the morning we do the standard opening presents with the kids deal, and then we eat eggs Benedict. We stay in our pjs all day, and then we munch on hot wings and other bad for you fried foods and the hubby and I drink bourbon old fashioneds and we watch old horror movies and MST3K all day. We eat sushi for Christmas dinner and have cheesecake, a lot more bourbon, and I open bday presents. We've continued it now that he's out and we're back home in Washington state. 

The best part is not leaving the house all damn day. It's the best! If family wants to see us on Christmas, they have to come to us. Because let's face it- we probably shouldn't be driving after all that bourbon anyway. Haha! 

The two professional pics I've attached are by H.A.R.D. Photography, and the other is my drink on Christmas. We don't actually have any of the tradition because we're so lazy all day on xmas!
