Best Day Of The Year…

I love Christmas morning.

It is my absolute favor day of the year. I totally regress….wake up early, put on my silly NY Giants Santa hat and gather the family together. (I am still amazed that I am ready and raring to go before my daughter).

We all huddle around the holiday tree and take turns opening amazing, thoughtful gifts.

Our Christmas Day extravaganza began because my father and grandfather were in the retail business and we never saw them from November to the end of the year.

Christmas day was always the one day we had together and we made the most of it.

Tradition dictates that we always start with the goofy stocking stuffers and then go hardcore.

Exhausted and over amped from opening all the incredible gifts, we sit down to my mom’s delicious and traditional potato pancake breakfast, accompanied by fresh squeezed Florida orange juice.

What a morning. Then we head to the beach to read, relax and work off breakfast.

Dinner is a celebration somewhere exotic in South Beach or Palm Beach. This year it’s the new restaurant at The Breakers Hotel Palm Beach.

I am wishing and a hopin’ that everyone has an absolutely fabulous holiday.

The Devil is on break…entitlement rants, restaurant reviews, travel stories, sports laments to commence again on January 5th.

I cannot believe how lucky I am to be able to communicate with you daily…what a phenomenal, supportive, interesting and ever expanding audience.

Happy Hanukah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Trails until we meet again in 2015!!
