The past 20 years we have kept the 57th Birthday Gift Legends Born In May 1965 57 Years Old T Shirt, sweater of serving carp and potato salad on Christmas Eve, the 24th of December, sitting down with whoever is still single of our 5 sons. In keeping with Czech customs, we have watched at least one Czech fairy tale on that day, a televized heap to choose from. Sometimes we have attended a midnight Mass at the local Catholic basilica. We part with Czech tradition, however, by waiting to open gifts until the next morning. This year there is a change. My husband’s parents, after 50 years of living in the US, are back to permanently reside here. We will spend Christmas “Eve” with them.
