The rules of the giveaway were to post about your family traditions. It was so fun reading everyone's traditions. Some of my favorites were Linda's "Wild Goose Chase" to find a gift, cookie swaps, and Sheri's singing in the worst and best voices.
Reeva's family tradition reminded me of one of ours: "Traditionally around this time of year, the family sits around eating homemade tea cakes and donuts and play the "what if" and "i wish" game on saturdays. Its a great time to just bond with the family without any judgements and get lost in the 'wish' or 'what if' scenario each family member has." Our family would write down our desires/goals for the year and seal them up together. There had to be at least one personal goal and one desire for someone else written down. Then we would look at them the next year and see. It's been a few years since we did this - might be time to resurrect it.
