We carry on a tradition from my husband’s time he spent in Holland.
On Christmas Eve before we start our Christmas program we put one of our shoes (some of us have wooden shoes) out on the front step. At the end of our Christmas program we go outside and like magic Father Christmas has paid us a visit and filled our shoes with goodies and a small gift.
Our children are married and they still love to come home and participate in this tradition. They still can’t figure it out.
Every couple should decide on traditions that they want to carry on through their family. Just be careful because once you make a family tradition it just might stick so make the traditions you pick something that you want to continue year after year.
