It has been a tradition to add ‘strange’ things to our family Christmas tree. One year, my grandmother (now deceased) sent us 4in rubber skeletons to adorn our tree. They are there, displayed prominently.
Our tree does not have bikini candles. I think they would be a fire hazard.
The countdown is on. My kids finish school today before the big event next week. I (along with millions of other parents) get to spend the following week yelling at the kids to go outside and then making a stop to our rum cabinet for some Christmas relief..no..Christmas cheer.
Lists to Santa have been compiled and sorted. Santa’s mug has been washed, dried and now awaits the magical elixir that keeps him going throughout that long night. Milk and a plate of cookies, some carrot sticks for the hungry reindeer.
