#17 - my favorite holiday

Finally came back from my Indonesia trip and my Vegas trip. I have a lot of catch up to do, gotta start practicing like crazy before the school year starts. 
Anyway, my favorite holiday is the Christmas holiday, the air just feels different during the Christmas time, everything is so festive and wonderful. My best memories of Christmas is a tradition that my family does every December 5th. Before the big Christmas day at the 25th, in Indonesia there is a tradition of putting grass in our shoes. In the morning the kids will wake up and see that Santa's reindeer have eaten the grass from the shoes and a treat is left as thank you from Santa. I loved that tradition, from going around the neighborhood cutting people's grass and setting it up on our shoes; of course waking up in the morning to grass scattered floor and empty shoes with a gift on top is a sweet surprise.
