Son’s last Christmas as a child

on December 24, 2011

Yes, even though Son is nearly 18, we are still doing the pillowcase thing (I think some call this the ‘Santa sack’). Our tradition, since he was born – derived from my parents’ tradition – is for him to leave an empty pillowcase at the end of his bed on Christmas Eve which then gets magically filled with presents before the morning.

I have never loved doing something as much as I love doing this! I always get so excited that I am the first one to wake up on Christmas morning – sometimes as early as 4am – then I have to go back to bed and wait for Son to wake up.

I guess this will be the last Christmas I go to such efforts – ha!

    Not necessarily – Tory Boy is 21 and still has a stocking! Do it for as long as he wants you to, and ignore his age.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. That is so sweet! Merry Christmas 🙂

    This was a tradition in my own family when we were little – can’t remember when it ceased – probably when we were teenagers. I think it is a lovely tradition & rather nice to keep it up – regardless of age.
