I know, I know. Those of you who KNOW me expect that this blog will be about THE Mouse… aka Mickey and WDW, but it’s not. I’m talking today about my favorite Christmas mouse!
Some years ago (which means I can’t remember when), I bought this cloth Christmas calendar from my local Avon lady. Each year I would hang it on one of my boys’ bedroom doors and they would fight to be the one to move the mouse. Each morning of December, they would try to be the first one out of bed so they could be the one.
As each one moved out, the others would gloat that they were now going to move them mouse. And they did.
But this year, it’s kind of a poignant one since my boys are grown and aren’t here most of the time. So, I’ve had no one to move the mouse. . . .
But, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before we find another tradition to follow this one — or find someone in the family to move the mouse each day.
How about you? Does your family have a holiday tradition like an Advent or Christmas calendar? Do you have little ones that do the “Elf on the Shelf”? How do you build up excitement to the Big Day?
Maybe it’s Terri’s attempt to continue to countdown the days until Christmas, or just a way to have fun, but tomorrow – December 13th – is her day on the Harlequin Historical Authors Holiday Calendar giveaway! She hopes you’ll stop by her website to enter her contest (and visit the other authors’ pages, too!)
