Over the past ten year's, due to logistics, our traditional Christmas breakfast that we have had since I was a toddler, has gotten moved to Boxing Day. This year, in honor of our Canadian friends and hockey traditions, we finally officially recognized the move, which seems to be permanent, by renaming the event the Official Boxing Day Breakfast.
The meal consists of fried oysters, country ham, sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits with massive amounts of butter and eggnog. Basically, nothing involved is good for you and adds about 50 points to a normal person's cholesterol reading.
If anyone is interested, we will issue a standing invitation to the meal next year on Boxing Day. Just let us know in advance.
