For the last few years, our family Christmas gifting tradition has been this: open presents from each other on the 23rd, extended family ‘white elephant’ game on the 24th, and then dive in to the big deluxe stockings left by Santa the morning of the 25th. Christmas traditions will have to look different this year — no parties, no big gatherings with extended family, etc. but we will definitely keep the Christmas magic alive with kid’s stockings stuffed with goodies from Santa!
