When I joined the Works family 53 years ago, they had a Christmas tradition of going to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.

Every Christmas Eve, we would meet at Uncle Jack and Aunt Marguerite’s home for oyster stew. For those who didn’t like oysters, Marguerite made a wonderful potato soup.

Everyone wore their festive outfits and enjoyed the conversation between all of the cousins.
