"Everyday Use" Before You Read: Tradition

Fifteen years from now, I will wake my kids up early in the morning on Christmas day and tell them that Santa left presents for them under the tree. This tradition involves me wrapping the kids gifts when they are sleeping and when I’m done put them under the tree early in the morning before they wake up. One of my happy memories of this tradition is that my dad and grandma did this for me and my brother, and when we woke up we were super excited to open our presents that we just ripped open the gift wrap to see what was inside. I will share this with my children by doing the same thing my dad and grandma did. By sharing this tradition with the future generation, I hope that my kids will do the same with their children and so on and so forth.

  1. It sounds like your family's Christmas traditions are very similar to mine. Think about how fun it will be to watch your children's faces light up when they first see all of the wrapped gifts.
