I happened to be in a situation where I did not have a family dinner on xmas day itself and was very thankful the local chinese place was open and bustling thanks to jewish customers.
I even got a neat chinese calendar as a gift.
we always have chinese on christmas... christmas eve is at my parents house and his family has christmas lunch at noon... by dinnertime we're starving and don't feel like cooking, so chinese it is!
on another note, I learned today exactly how messed up my brain has apparently been for 31 years... did you know that it's possible to actually pay attention to something for long enough to complete it? I didn't
