The 12 days of Christmas

Presents on my daughters’ lists

Years ago I came up with the idea to give each of my girls 12 presents for Christmas. I told them one for each of the 12 Days of Christmas. The real reason was to manage their expectations and not have them want an enormous haul every December 25th. The presents range from a few significant items to books and small things. But the number has stuck and is now a family tradition.

For the first time, I was focused on stockings this holiday. I usually make a last minute (too often Christmas eve) dash to grab “stuff” as filler. Not this year. I am going to look for fun stuffers and will wrap them too.
