your holiday tradition nobody else has Answered
I have recently become curious about holiday traditions that people have that no one else has. This curiosity began when I contacted a holiday historian about a tradition passed down in my own family. The historian felt this originated within my family, though it has elements similar to England's plum Pudding ( my gm was half English) . My best guess is that my grandmother came up this ( a gift filled Christmas Pie) out of a desire to make a meager Christmas special early in her marriage. We have a second tradition that I started. It is a house elf, who writes letters year around and visits for two weeks at Christmas. I called on him because of my daughter's terror of Santa, whom she called the Claws. Both these traditions were likely born of need, and because they served their purpose well, were embraced and stayed. Now I am curious about others. Do you have a tradition you will share?
