It is Christmas Eve and I am not really in the mood to post anything about the Three Es.
Searching around, I thought I would share a family tradition of mine. Long ago I chafed at the extremely dry family letters that we would receive during the holidays and decided to write ours in a very different style.
What started as a lampoon of others' letters became an important tradition in our own household, and I am told that many people look forward to receiving and reading our yearly missive. One family saves it for a read aloud at the dinner table.
In the spirit of the holidays, I offer you this fragment from last year's letter. I would offer this year's, but not everybody has received it yet and nothing beats real mail.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.
P.S. - The site will not be updated by me on Christmas Day.
