For 18 straight years, Bob Bowers helped organize and cook for the Christmas Friendship Dinner This years, Bowers and a small army of volunteers, including The Palins helped cook and serve 63 turkeys, 60 hams, 600 pounds of potatoes, 50 gallons of gravy, 80 pounds of butter, dozens of large cans of beans and corn, and 600 pounds of carrots.
Naturally, Obama and family stayed away from anything Christian on Christmas as CNN reported.
