B’s Tradition

My husband started his own Christmas tradition a few years ago. Every December, he puts a $50 bill in tiny little envelopes and gives one to each member of the family with the instructions that they are to get themselves a Christmas gift they really want, wrap it up, and put it under the tree with a tag that says from themselves to themselves! We’ve had a lot of fun and laughter with this tradition over the years.

Here’s a photo of this year’s gift to myself. The order arrived from Powell’s, most of them used books but in excellent condition, and within the price range if you don’t include the hardback on the bottom of the pile which I couldn’t resist adding to the order (Germaine Greer’s new book). I was delighted to open this present yesterday! And, as you can see, I’m all ready for Historia’s 2009 Shakespeare Challenge to begin!

    It’s fun to plan something for yourself while you’re also putting Christmas together for everybody else!

    Thanks, Nymeth. It’ll take me the entire year to read all of those…I went a little challenge happy, I’m afraid.

    Thanks, Kailana. I’m especially interested in Germaine Greer’s new book.

    How wonderful! I know sometimes it’s hard to buy something just for ourselves so this is the perfect way to indulge a bit πŸ™‚
    Merry Christmas!
