"CHRISTMAS GIFT!" In my oddball family, if someone says "Christmas gift" before you do, that means you owe them a gift! Yep, it's one of those odd family traditions that my Grandfather handed down.

I'll always remember my Grandfather waiting for us to arrive on Christmas morning, so he could run outside and be the first to announce "Christmas gift!"

As I got older, I always wondered why he beat us to the punch. Then I realized that my father and everyone else made sure that my Grandfather said it first because that was the right thing to do.

My Grandfather is gone now, but we still carry on the tradition. Now we even include "Christmas Eve Gift!" What different or odd family traditions does your family have?

Have a beautiful Christmas y'all! I love ya'!
