The One Night of the Year When Everything’s Right with the World
Ever since her three kids were little, attorney Mary Quinn Cooper’s family has gone to the 4:15pm Christmas Eve mass at Parish of Christ the King, and then back home for dinner as a family. It’s her favorite time of the year – the one night of the year when everything’s right with the world.
So favorite holiday memory or tradition has always been going to Christmas Eve mass. We go at 4:15 in the overflow gym, which I’ve done since my kids were little.
And now my kids are grown. So I’ve got a 33-year-old, a 30-year-old and a-26 year-old. And we still go to overflow mass in the gym. My son is still not very well behaved in mass, as has been his life history. And then everybody comes to my house for dinner.
That’s the one night of the year when everything’s right with the world. It’s my favorite time of the year, and it’s my favorite night.
