With this post, we arrive at the crescendo of Nelson Holiday celebrations.
In the Nelson Household, Christmas Eve is almost as much a holiday as Christmas Day itself. It has its own traditions and rhythms, and was a day we would get off of school back when we were homeschooled.
Those words may inspire in you feelings of joy, stress, or terror, depending on how the day went in your childhood. For the Nelson household, it was a busy time.
