If you read any of my posts last Christmas season you know about my "Christmas Gift" story. It is a family tradition to be the first one Christmas morning to say "Christmas Gift" to another one of the family. It was a tradition handed down for many years my grandmother said. My kids always thought we were corny when we did this, but I think it means as much to them now as it does to me.
Grandma Jessie is no longer with us and it gives me a sense of closeness to her when I remember how she laughed when she got to say it first. That is why I am including it in my cards.
I have learned through my blog that it is not only MY family tradition, but a lot of families played this sweet game during the 1800's. Back then if you said it first, you were presented with an extra gift. But we didn't do that, just had fun trying to be the first one.
