My favorite holiday tradition occurs on Christmas morning. We turn on a Christmas playlist from my iPod. Then we take down our stockings and sit around the table with our coffee (was hot chocolate when the kids were little) and open our stockings to see what Santa left. First we each get a Christmas Popper and we all in turn put on our paper crowns and display our little toys. Then we ask the silly riddles. Imagine, five adult professionals wearing our crowns and blowing our whistles or racing our little plastic cars! Then we take turns opening the goodies in our stockings. Santa leaves everyone special little gifts and always includes a new Christmas ornament, some candy, and a new toothbrush. Only then do we open our presents and have some coffee cake.
