Okay, confession time: I can't remember a Christmas eve within the last several years where I didn't drink to my merry little heart's desire, and end up falling asleep with an empty wine glass on the nightstand and visions of blurry, quickly multiplying sugar plums dancing in my head.
The night before Christmas has always been party time in my household. But that's not to say the lead up to the big day doesn't involve a few holiday cocktails, either.
Honestly, the entire Christmas season is the perfect excuse to drink because if anyone says anything you can be like "Hey, I'm just trying to get in the spirit! Leave me alone! And also maybe fetch me another bottle, while you're up."
