“One of my favorite Christmas traditions is celebrating Christmas Eve hosted at my house.  Every year Santa comes to visit to hand out the first gifts of Christmas.  I have great memories as a child of waiting all night in anticipation, and now it is equally as exciting to see my little cousins experience the same joy.”
