Ever since I was a kid, we have always celebrated Christmas with Chinese food and a movie.
For us, it began out of necessity. I clearly remember Mama driving us around San Jose, Calif., one Christmas in the early 1980s, searching for anything open where we could get food. Literally our only option was a Chinese restaurant called 4-5-6. Thus a tradition was born.
Today we did the low-key version. I “made” Chinese food (with the help of Trader Joe’s) and we streamed a movie onto our TV — thereby combining the traditions for the ultimate win: Chinese food WHILE watching a movie WHILE wearing pajamas!
Today’s #OneGoodThing was our American Jewish Christmas! I hope you had a happy day — however you chose to celebrate!
Day 360 of 366.
