Organization is the key

I have a schedule for the prep and food for Yule. Many people have done a ton of prep work to get us to the point where we are now. If not for freezers, and doing stuff ahead of time, this list would be a lot more labor intensive. We should have a nice day up to about 4 pm. It will get crazy for a few hours, and then it will be all over.
