I started this tradition a long time ago when the kids were little-with having 5 kids they dont get alot of one on one parent time. My tradition for them is to make out a Christmas list of their siblings, Mom, Dad, and teachers. Then I take them individually shopping and out to eat their choice. Tonight I took my 18 year old Tim. I told him how I hope he carries on the tradition with his family one of these days. I set a budget amount with the kids to shop with. Some years we have more others years less. The point is its not how much you spend or get. its the thought of someone cared enough to to get you a gift. Its Jesus’s birthday and a season of love, forgivenes, peace with our family’s.
