  • Holiday Traditions

    Does your family have any holiday traditions? When I was young, it was watching The Wizard of Oz on TV (With all the commercials, it was a long afternoon). We also played softball at the park before the afternoon feast!

    On Thanksgiving Eve, myself and my sons go stay the night at my parent's house. I help my mom cook through the night and in the morning. We eat there and I go back home. On Christmas Eve, my parents come to my house, I always have the Christmas Eve boxes/gifts for everyone which include matching pjs. We all wake up early together, open gifts and get started on the Christmas feast. We do have the old Charlie Brown movies and such playing on the tv too. That's the only thing I like about winter, is the holidays that come with it

      Our family is not big on presents- we follow the 4 gift rule: Something you want, something you need, something you wear, and something you read. Thats it- no crazy piles of gifts under the tree. We do stuff stocking full of other small trinkets and candies and gift cards- but other than that- that is it. We have the TV on Hallmark channel for the ladies half the time and DVD's of all kinds of Christmas movies OR sports channel for the guys the other half. We dont have any small children in our family at the moment. We have a game we play before Christmas dinner called the candy cane pick up. You dump about 50 or so candy canes on the table, and there are 2 teams- they cannot use their hands to pick up the candy canes- only using a candy cane from their mouth to hook the ones on the table. After a full 2 minutes whichever team has the most candy canes doe NOT have to do dishes. We usually do an outing of some sort the week of- maybe go on a hike ( weather permitting) or drive to Seattle to see the lights display or Leavenworth,WA for tree lighting ceremony. We also drive over to Tacoma WA to see the Scrooge musical. Other than that- we sit in our PJ's all day and eat really fattening yummy treats and nap or watch TV

          A lot of great ideas. I will give you my thoughts and opinions but each faciltity is unique and each location presents its own positives and negatives.

          If you have no advertising budget or very little, I would start with the following.

          spidey senses, gotta love them... in our area anytime someone inquires about "smallest unit" and "access hours" we are on guard.. I had one the other day who wanted the smallest then asked if we accept checks after refusing to say what she's storing other than "boxes"....

          I won't blow unless I absolutely have to. I prefer broom and dustpan. As far a "hacks", I'll get the extension cords out and a shopvac on the roofs when its time to clean gutters of leafs, dusting doors are super quick if you get a California king duster from wally world in the auto section....
