Our Family Christmas Tradition
Christmas has always been a special holiday in my life. I so enjoyed Christmas when we had children, my wife would spend six weeks preparing for the big day that grew into a month long celebration starting with our annual family gathering for Thanksgiving. As my two children became teenagers I saw the fun start to disappear from the holiday so I introduced The Christmas Web in 1992. You’ll learn about The Christmas Web on my blog. In 2005 my wife bought our first grandchild an Elf on The Shelf and we started incorporating her elf into our month long celebration of the holiday. This continued with the addition of two more grandchildren and has been a part of our Christmas now for 23 years.
In 2012 my daughter encouraged me to write a children’s book about our Christmas Family Tradition and the result is The Christmas Web – A Family Tradition. I invite you to read along and I hope our tradition can inspire and grow a tradition for your family.
