Personal Notes:
Mom always enjoyed oyster stew although not a favorite of mine, in fact, I DON'T touch it!! However, several of our family members enjoy it as well.

You can use fresh oysters or canned oysters but NEVER, NEVER, Rocky Mountain Oysters. Any Iowa farm boy can explain the latter to you.

Prior to Christmas Eve dinner, we would all sit around & visit to catch up on the happenings in each others' lives as we never seemed to get together very often.

After stuffing ourselves with chili, oyster stew, & sandwiches, we would sit back & relax a bit before opening gifts. Then it was time to engage in a card game or two - usually 10-Point Pitch or "Shit" on your Neighbor as we liked to call it. Really, it's just another version of Rummy.

During the course of the evening & after our tummies had somewhat settled, we would again make ourselves miserable tasting all of Mom's excellent baked goodies, candies, scrabble, & caramel corn.

To this day, our family still enjoys playing cards &, of course, they still love to eat so the tradition lives on.
