We were invited to travel south to the Navajo reservation for a Navajo Christmas.
We’re not planning on going down, but we were curious just what a Navajo Christmas might be like. So we asked.
Well, everyone’s going to dress up. … And it turns out, the Golden Corral is open on Christmas Day in Holbrook, so Christmas lunch for the whole clan will be there.
Sort of weirdly reminiscent of James McMurtry’s Choctaw Bingo. Not acquainted with this Americana classic? Here’s all eight and a half minutes of this bit of Oklahoma strangeness on Youtube. Maybe northeast Arizona isn’t that different from eastern Oklahoma. If the Golden Corral has WiFi, this can be your Christmas lunch entertainment.
