Although my Winter Break was very uneventful, there are a couple things that my family does every year. Every year around December 20th, my mom's side of the family gets together for dinner and a white elephant at my great aunt and great uncle's house. During this get-together, I get to see members of my family that I hardly ever see.
Around December 23rd, my mom's direct family (Her Sisters/Brothers/Mom/Dad) comes over to our house for a brunch and a gift exchange. Earlier this day my brothers and I go down into our basement, where candy and a present await us in our stockings. This year, I got a skee Ball table from my Grandpa.
Another yearly Christmas I have is with my Dad's side of the family. This is at my grandparent's house, and they try to move the date around the rest of the family's schedules. Everyone has to bring a dish, and once most people show up, everyone eats. After everyone is done eating, we wait at least a half an hour before opening presents. I got a South Central Trojans duffle bag from my Grandma and Grandpa during this Christmas party.
