A Late Yule Poll

Does watching The Clash of the Titans on Christmas Eve count as "special"? It's not a tradition, but it is sort of religious, though it is the wrong religion, eh? ;-)

Send me some eggnog - YUM!

Not only does watching Clash of the Titans count, but it's FABULOUS! Our ritual involves the making of Christmas cookies while watching "Double Indemnity." There's something about the whir of the mixer and the 40s-style sexual banter of Barbara Stanwyk and Fred MacMurray that just says "Christmas" to me!

Hmmm, on location, you didn't have "We chose to stay home this year." I used to travel every year, usually to my sister's (since she was the one with kids), but since I got married, we've chosen to stay home and make new traditions.
