Due to having divorced parents I had the opportunity growing up of seeing Christmas arrive in two separate parts of the country. With my mom, Christmas in Rhode Island was lobster dinner at my god mothers, midnight mass and opening of the first presents sometime around 1:30 Christmas morning. I was a part of a labor Catholic union family that often saw some snow, but it really wasn't that cold around the fireplace.

With my dad, New Mexico Christmases were much warmer. The highlight was the old adobe church that was surrounded by Luminarias and with a basement full of excellent Mexican food. It was a little slower and had the Midwestern feel.

In Minnesota, my kids usually get a lot of snow and cold. It's hockey tournaments, a Holidazzle parade and Christmas programs.

I hope for all of our Legal Examiner readers each of your Christmases are filled with you and your families own great memories. May the Holiday season be a safe and healthy one.
