Saw this on pintrest and I am curious whose families actually host a very formal and elaborate holiday dinner. In a lot of movies set during the holidays people dress up and have elegant meals and themed table settings and I am kind of sad that I don't know anyone who does this. In our families and circle of friends everything is very informal, people wear their comfy, stretchy clothes and we sit down to eat anywhere there is space. Food is served in random dishes and platters and we don't generally do music or themed decorations. I've lived in the South and now the West coast, so I don't think I am culturally isolated, but I am curious if any of you guys go all out for the holidays.
