Christmas is a major holiday in Molossia and a time of great tradition as well as festivity. Traditionally a three-day celebration, the holiday actually began on December 24th with a small Molossian family gathering. Christmas Eve dinner consisted this year of a light fare of various snacks and desserts, especially Christmas cookies. The evening ended with the reading of the "Night Before Christmas", a Molossian tradition. Christmas morning, December 25th, began early, as the family descended upon the pile of presents beneath the National Christmas Tree. Later, Molossians gathered from miles around in Government House to exchange gifts and engage in family revelry, including playing Christmas games. Once the present-opening ended the rest of the day was spent relaxing, enjoying gifts and watching movies. Boxing Day is on December 26th, and is the last day of the Christmas holidays. While no special events usually take place, dinner on Boxing Day is usually shepherd's pie, Molossian style. This wrapped up the Christmas events for the year, with everyone eagerly looking forward to the distant arrival of next year's Christmas!
