Christmas Eve is such a special night of the year.
My family's tradition is to place a special letter to Santa on the fireplace hearth,
with a glass of cold milk and freshly baked cookies for Santa,
a big carrot for Rudolph,
and of course a mini glass of milk and a chunk of cheese for Santa's Mouse.
Our time together is precious, since we all live so far apart.
Even though my sister and I are all grown up,
some traditions never change.
When it's time for bed, we unwrap one gift...
We all need a good night sleep so we don't wake up when Santa visits.

A very special book, one that was handed down through generations.
What's your tradition?
