Happy Holidays!!

Merry Christmas Eve!

What are your special Christmas Eve traditions?  We always make sticky buns and bake cookies, and I help my parents finish up their gift wrapping (I love wrapping gifts - they don't).  We don't have a traditional Christmas Eve dinner, but I think tonight we're having "chicken" scampi made with vegetarian Quorn "chicken" patties (and loads of butter, white wine, and the fabulous fresh pasta J's family brought for us from Philly).  I hope everyone has a nice Christmas Eve.

Today, I have a manicure in very traditional Christmas colors.  I considered Konading green over red, but since using Konad tends to thin out the color, I didn't think it would show up very well.  So instead I did half-and-half red and green using OPI Red Hot Gift (the polish I wore yesterday) topped with two coats of SpaRitual Yes, I Can.

Have a wonderful Christmas Eve.
