(Report by Jim)
The Christmas Eve family party was a Riverside IL thing for as long as I can remember. As my cousins moved northward one by one, the tradition moved to Leland (and to Northport this year). It’s what we all have in common going back four generations (depending on who you ask). So, from our family to yours, Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Omisoka, or even plain Happy Holidays if you want. We don’t care, as long as we get to share them with you.
