Gift Giving Traditions

Well, I know that in my house all the cookies are made, gifts wrapped, nog egged, and now I get to sit back and watch with delight as my little one squirms in eager anticipation of bedtime coming and the inevitable visit from the big guy — Santa Claus.  In thinking about the traditions that surround the Christmas holiday in our home, I found this interesting (and interactive!) infographic that highlights the various traditions of gift giving around the world — not just around Christmas time!  Hopefully you can take some time to explore it and find it as interesting as I did.

Merry Christmas!!
