Back home in Seattle, my family celebrates the holidays by inviting all our relatives over for Christmas. Some years my cousins from Texas will visit, or my grandmother from Florida or aunt and uncle from New York – whatever the case, the Joslin household is never lacking an ounce of holiday cheer. Once the family’s all assembled, we go downtown for a brunch in the Space Needle’s classy lil restaurant, making sure our relatives have the chance to see the city. Sometimes it’s even cold enough for snow, and my brother and I can challenge my young cousins to a mercilessly festive snowball fight.
