In the Demarest household, Christmas is a time for family. Cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, wives, husbands, children and pets have historically descended on my parents’ house in Spartanburg, South Carolina on Christmas day. It has always been a day where the entire family comes together from however spread out across the country (and recently, globe) we’ve gotten. One Christmas, we had to video chat my cousin in from Afghanistan.
