Spotlight Saturday Sale!
Oh Christmas is coming closer.... We are counting the days here... and tomorrow we are going to decorate the house. But it's not my story that is going to be told here.
Today Shelley is sharing her Christmas Family Traditions:
I have a special decoration that my Grandma gave me when I was very young. It is just a Elf made out of felt, but I have put it out every Christmas since I was probably five. Just recently has people told me that they think it is creepy, but I just don't see it. lol We also have a Elvis ornament that was my mom's now it hangs on our tree. I just wouldn't feel right to leave him off the tree. We also have Elvis Christmas music playing while we decorate.
I have told my nephews that I am an honorary elf that gets to check on kids for Santa. I even made up a ID card to prove it to them. Not that I think they have really fallen for it, they go along with it just in case. I send them all a letter from Santa each year. It is so fun to see there reaction when Santa knows something bad they have done.
On Christmas eve my family gets together for dinner, we let the kids open up a toy. My parents started this when we were all young, the gift we always got to open was our new pajamas and robe! But now a days we let them open a toy. Even though my son is now 19 he still wants to open up at least one gift, they rest have to be saved until morning when Santa arrives. Then we watch a Christmas Story and laugh hysterically.
My son still puts out a plate of cookies & cup of milk for Santa, just to make me happy! And of course Santa still leaves him a letter. I don't think that will ever stop.
