That is a beautiful family tradition. I am now an empty nester, but we used to do something very like that.

As for "Santa's Day", you DO know that there really is such a thing. It falls on December 6th.



See? I can be controversial, too? ;)

As to the debate over the actual birth date of Christ, I don't think it matters.  Christmas (at least in our household) is a celebration in commemoration of His birth.  I am adopted, and I see this as akin to celebrating my "gotcha day"--the day in my family when we celebrate the fact that they "got me".  It's not really my birthday, but it's a day everyone chooses to celebrate my grand entrance.  (Not that I in any way compare to Christ, but I hope you'll all see the parallel.)  God bless!
