Letters Under the Tree

"At Christmas time, on the radio they were featuring Christmas traditions one year. I heard all these wonderful traditions and kind of wished I had one of my own. I went to work thinking of a tradition for my family: I wanted it to be cheap enough, and easy enough to be carried on, but still touching. Well, my 9-year-old child said, 'Mom, I have the perfect idea. Let's write a letter to each other telling how much we love and appreciate each other and what is our best memory is of them this year. And let's put it under the tree and open it first thing Christmas Day.'

"That Christmas Day was the most beautiful and heartwarming Christmas I have ever had. We started out our Christmas Day being thankful for each other every year now. This is and will continue to be my favorite memory of Christmas."
