Christmas Eve Tradition

Like many families, we have our own unique Christmas traditions. Every Christmas Eve we all go to my grandparents' house in Lynden ("Oma" & "Opa" to most of my cousins & my kids). This year the challenge was in getting there - it had snowed 6-8 inches in our northern part of the county that day! We all carpooled our way there, with some gracious drivers making multiple trips across town.

We have a soup dinner with the whole extended family who are in town for the holidays, then open stockings assembled by the women in the family. The stockings include such random items as kitchen sponges, golf tees, crazy glue, shampoo samples and, always, socks. And then, of course, we bombard each other with the wrapping paper. It may sound silly to those of you who aren't a part of the Fisher clan, but to us it's just Christmas Eve.
