I LOVE Christmas. Not like “Oh it’s a nice time of year” kind of love. Like “Get me all the gaudiness and jingle bells and holiday sweaters” kind of love. It’s almost idolatry. I’m working on it.
But this year in an attempt to make things more simple with my family, I suggested we draw names between all the kids and spouses (there are 5 of us) instead of buying for everyone. I found this cool website: http://www.namedrawing.net/ where you can enter names and stipulations and it creates “random” draws for you.
And now that my kids are getting old enough to start remembering holidays, I’m feeling the pressure to create great traditions in our family. I would love to have a few things that we did every year to remember what the holiday is really about (even though the reindeer are fun). Any suggestions?
