My friend Richard is hosting Happy Holidailies. The goal is to post daily on your blog from December 1st to January 1st. For those 32 days, I’m going to be making a short post on what the random prompt generator creates.
Prompt – Does your family do anything wacky during the holidays?
Does going to the ER count?
It only happened one year. My ten-year-old sister was sick for a few days leading up to Christmas, so we planned a low-key affair. After we finished unwrapping presents, she announced from the couch she laid on, “I’m glad there are no more presents. I’m too tired to open another one.” I stayed with Grandma while Mom took her to the hospital. I can’t remember what they diagnosed her with, but she was home for another week after that.
Otherwise, the only tradition I can think of is that we’re allowed to open one present on Christmas Eve, right before bed. Usually we would be guided towards unwrapping a plush toy to cuddle with until morning.
