Padres’ Jake Peavy talks about the holidays
MLB.com: You talk often about how important family is to you. How big a deal was Christmas growing up in the Peavy house?
Peavy: It was as big as it gets. I think down south, Christmas is much more than just the toys and stuff — Christianity, the birth of Christ. I just think that a lot of that is bred into Christmas down south. It’s a great holiday. There’s lot of family involved, and now that we’re doing it with my boys … that makes it very special.
