As many of us celebrated the Holidays we revisited some traditions. Like a lot of families do, my family also has a number of traditions. Ours include:
- A turkey grilled on my trusty Weber™ kettle.
- A thorough cleaning of the house, because my wife says if we don’t, my mother-in-law will want to hire us a maid. I’m still trying to understand how that’s a bad thing.
- A post-dinner family card game. After all, this is the cleanest our dining room table gets all year.
- Some late-into-the-evening TV. This usually consists of our favorite holiday movie, “A Christmas Story.” If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a cult classic about a boy named Ralphie Parker, and his mission to obtain a BB gun, his struggles with the neighborhood bully, and, of course, his father’s uncanny fascination with a very peculiar sweepstakes prize:
