Christmas through July

For the holidays, my family likes to keep it pretty traditional.

The day after Thanksgiving, we always put up all of our Christmas decorations.

We are all Christmas freaks and can’t wait a single day.

Then, when Christmas Eve rolls around, my mom hangs a pickle ornament on the tree.

Whichever child finds it gets to open one present.

I never find it, but being the youngest child and the only girl of three children, I always get to open a present.

Christmas morning, my two brothers, my mom and I sit in the living room and open presents.

After all the presents are opened, it’s my mom’s favorite part. Clean up time.

We all clean the house and help my mom cook.

Christmas night, we all get together and watch the Charlie Brown Christmas movie, like we do for every other holiday.

We don’t eat a big Thanksgiving type meal; we eat posole, which is pretty much just Mexican soup.

Of course, my mom does make about 30 pounds of it, so I guess we do kind of eat a big meal.

After Christmas is over, all of our decorations don’t come down till about the middle of July just because that’s the way it goes.
