Day 24: Tradition
A couple of years ago we began exchanging goodies and good cheer with a couple of our neighbors. Our one neighbor, an older bachelor who is a local musician, makes these incredible cookies. I think they are Swedish. They are like shortbread with this creamy sweet filling. I think it’s funny he loads them into these plastic Chinese take-out boxes. Definitely multi-cultural.
Day 25: lunchtime
umm, they were part of lunch as well. It’s soooo hard to resist holiday goodies.
Day 26: mess
Not much of a mess since everything is in tidy little shiny bags. I know of one family where they have a real prankster who did the whole box in a box present thing. He had shredded up all his old homework and used it as package filler. Once those packages were opened a bona-fide explosion of notebook confetti flew around the room. I guess they found paper bits clear into April. We are a tidy family. Although I think Christmas mess is totally healthy and is probably quite fun.
