Random Acts of Christmas Kindness
I always encourage my kids to think of others, give a little extra, and generally to be kind to friends, family, animals and nature. During the month of December, I make an extra effort to instill these...
A Wrapping Party
My two best friends and I get together each year before Christmas for a wrapping party. Like me, they both hate wrapping presents, but when you turn it into a special event, we all look forward to it. We...
Falling Asleep with Christmas Music
My parents had a Christmas tradition that they would put on Christmas music when we went to bed on Christmas Eve so we could all fall asleep to the wonderful sound of Christmas. Now that I'm older, I figured out...

Break-through Christmas Morning Tradition
When I was a kid my parents "wrapped" the doorway to the living room so we would have to break through the wrapping paper to get into the room and see the tree (It's kind of like a high school homecoming game when...

Traces of Santa
Every Christmas Eve after the kids go to bed, I put out the presents and then make sure to leave some proof that Santa and the reindeer really made a visit. I take bites of the cookies, carrots and...
The New Christmas Card Tradition
Several years ago I missed sending out my Christmas cards. I was so busy with the birth of my third child, that I just didn’t get time to get the cards sent out. By early February, things had settled down a...
A Handmade Christmas
When I was in college I didn’t have a lot of money to spare at Christmas time so my Mom and Dad came up with the idea for Handmade Christmas. All family members were expected to make their Christmas...
The Annual Christmas Lights Tour
Ever since my daughter was very young, we’ve planned a Christmas Lights tour for one night in December. Everyone gets their pajamas on and then we head out to see the Christmas lights in our town. I pop a...
You Have Been Elfed!
A couple weeks before Christmas, all my neighbors play a game called "You Have Been Elfed!" Someone starts by dropping off the rhyme (see below), a picture of an elf on a sheet of paper and treats at two...
The Christmas Pickle
Many years ago I found a strange little pickle ornament at my local Christmas shop. It had a small card attached that gave more information on the odd little ornament. The card explained that the...
