  • Other than being Christian, my heritage (English and German) doesn’t influence our holiday celebration too much. My dad, on the other hand, remembers how his parents used to wait until Christmas Eve to put up their Christmas tree, telling the children that Santa Claus brought it. I understand that this is a very German thing to do, and it made more sense to me when I realized that *their* grandparents were raised in Germany with this tradition.

    December 3, 2019
