The Fresh Noel
“I wrapped one huge box filled with skiing gear,” says Susan. “Some was new; some was borrowed.” That morning, they told their sons they would take a family skiing trip during spring break.
A Favorite Tradition
“The trip is now our favorite tradition,” Susan continues. “The boys don’t know where we’re going, but it’s always revealed on Christmas morning.” One or two other families often join the Nixes, making the adventure even more fun. Sure, there are still gifts, but just a few, and they often relate to the trip ahead.
