My aunt lived in the Nashville area, but she always, always, tried to be the first caller to us on this day, and would say 'Christmas Eve gift'! It became a game to see who could call who first and we still do that to this day. My oldest daughter called at 7:30 and I got her! The others will try to wait each other out. With caller ID, you can pick up the phone without saying hello first, and say it...laughter always follows.
Another silly tradition that we started with our children and continue it until today as well, was gathering at a local Krystal on Christmas Eve. We would eat those little hamburgers, enjoy each other, laughing and talking about Christmas past.
Our rain is to stop, get windy, and cold for Christmas Day. I can handle cold much better than dreary rain.
KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS
