|Couldn't help photographing the tree :)|
I didn't risk and let dad be the 1st one, ending with giving some to our kitty Hrytsia who is just 1 year old. ))
|Just the beginning of serving the table. Kutya in the bowl and mushrooms in the pot.|
The dinner starts from a prayer to thank God for everyone's being able to live long enough to be there on Chrustmas Eve. Then everyone sits down and shouldn't stand up before they've tried every dish of the 12 available on the table.
Of course Hrytsia had her own small plate.
She wasn't very excited about the fish we gave her, but the mushrooms made her lick the plate to the shiniest condition ever. :D What a weird animal... Having everyone around, she fell asleep after a good meal. So cute! Check it out:
...while I will get another slice of honey pie in the meantime. :)
