All I want for Christmas...
We have these weird pear ornaments from the fake tree my mom had growing up. On Christmas morning, whoever is at the base of the tree handing out the gifts (which devolved to always being the youngest, which is me) takes one of the pears and hangs it from one of their ears for the entire gift giving duration. I really don’t know why we do this…my mom’s family never did it or anything, but every year I hang that fucking pear from my ear and I never really realized how weird that was until my cousin and his wife spent Christmas with us last year and she kept laughing at how bizarre it was.

Work for It
coming from a family of construction workers and carpenters, Every year they up the ante with more wood, nails, wielding and duct tape.
It’s kinda funny watching them work tirelessly for 20 minutes to get to the 10 dollar gift card, but hey, we don’t have that much money and the entire extended family really gets into it.
It’s more a bonding experience than anything.
I still hate them though. =] (dtrains)
And None for Gretchen Weiners
Christmas Eve, after church service, the family loads up the dog and cat in the car and drives around looking at Christmas lights. We end it with a trip to Tastee Freeze to get a hamburger for the dog and a small vanilla ice cream for the cat. Humans don’t get anything. (vidproducer)
