Our secret Santa, we started this tradition a couple of years ago and I wanted to share it with you. In one of our efforts to take the commercialism away from the holidays my husband and I decided to start a secret Santa with our kids. At thanksgiving we each pull a name and for the month of December we are that person’s secret Santa. The only rule with the secret Santa is that you have to do things for your secret Santa all month, just because. Know one knows who has who and its not about buying that person things, its about being there for that person, doing things that will be special to your secret person. Its about knowing that one person hates getting up and going out to a cold car, so someone starts their car in the morning for them, its about finding notes from your secret Santa that tell you how much they love you, its about coming home and finding your bed made the room tidy, its about getting an extra hug from someone, a foot massage when you least expect it and just learning about what makes the person who’s name you have pulled happy.
I just wanted to do my happy dance when this Thanksgiving, Nikki had all the names already in a bag to pull for our secret Santa’s and was so excited about it. It was funny to hear our sons commenting about what they did prior years, or who did what. I think I have found this to be my favorite activity during the holidays.
So take a moment and think about your special someone and surprise them with a secret note, or gesture you will be amazed at the smile it will bring to them and the hug it will give your heart.
