In our family, Christmas isn’t just one day. It’s more like four days. Four days of family gatherings. Four days of giving and receiving gifts. Four days of really, really, ridiculously good food. All done (for the most part) in pajamas, with a wrapping-paper obsessed dog, with a wee bit of your inner hoosier and with a pesky cold (yep, it’s bound to happen). And that’s how you get the 2013 edition of our Merry Little Christmas.
