Yes, you did. I didn't know anyone else played this little game. In our family we say "Christmas Eve Gift".

Ann said...

lol.... Waynette I'm glad someone else plays this... I was afraid that everyone would think I had lost my mind! (by the way- it you see it running around would you send it home!)

I pray you have a very Merry Christmas this year!

LOL - We actually open our gifts on Christmas eve, late at night. We attend church services and enjoy the evening in.

Sue said...

Huh? What game? Ya'll open presents on Christmas Eve morning?
IS THIS ANOTHER OF THOSE ODD ALABAMA THINGS???

Ann said...

Sue... I would say this is one of those odd Alabama things except Waynette said they do it and I THINK she in Arkansas.

Supposedly, when you talk to someone for the first time on Christmas Eve - the first one to say CHRISTMAS EVE PRESENT (or GIFT)gets some kind of Gift from the other.

We don't actually do the gift swap but we (well some of us) try to be the first to say it. I guess it's one of those TRADITION things that one day you start by accident and just kind of continue!

I guess you noticed that Jim hasn't chimed in a comment on this. He is the one that says "Hmmmp that is so silly" and he may be thinking that since he didn't comment he can still "get" me when I talk to him on the phone after while.... BUT you and I both that he has probably trolled through here and I GOT HIM!

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Sue said...

It looks like you win, Ann.

Thanks for explaining this.. I had NO clue what your post was about!! LOL

Did Jim try to pull a fast one on you by pretending to not see this post?

Oh, and a very belated Merry Christmas Eve.
