... 9 days to go!

We are now down to single digits until the big day arrives!

Is there a special tradition, old or new, that your family embraces, or that you look forward to every year? Is there a tradition that you used to follow that you miss?

We would like to know about that certain something that helps, or has helped, to make your Christmas' special.

Special Tradition:

I would like to share a special tradition that my Grandfather used to do for us when I was a little girl. About six weeks or so before Christmas my Grandfather would begin his work on the project. It was part of his Christmas present to my Father (his son-in-law). What he did was write little poems .... yes poems ... little ditties actually. He would wrap up my Fathers Christmas present for under the tree with the "first" poem. When Dad opened it he would find this poem and usually some old piece of junk to make it weigh more. In the text of the poem Gramps would give my Dad funny little digs, and he would give him directions to go to find the next clue/poem/present. Then all of us children and my Dad would head off throughout our house (it was a very big old home) in search of the next clue/poem/present. We would probably be directed to about 6 or 7 different stops ... each one having another of my Grandad's poems. Ultimately, we would find the "real" gift and bring it down to the living room for Dad to open.

I will never forget the poems that mt Grandad wrote and the fun he made for all of us at Christmas. I lost my Grandfather when I was 14 and so the poems were lost then as well, but the memories that he made for us will always remain in my mind and heart!
