I turned forty this year. Not sure how old you think I am! But I was raised in a town with a lot of very, very traditional/newly immigrated Italian families, and the Feast of the Seven Fishes was something many of my friends did. It was amazing, and I always enjoyed it very much.
Actually, I had thought (correctly) that you were a good bit younger than me, until your previous post. (I'm 59 and holding, for now - which makes me exempt from Lenten fasting for the first time.)

The no-meat on Christmas Eve rule went out with Vatican II (mid-1960s), and most Catholics I know dropped that tradition like a rock.
