A Silly Stocking Stuffer

For as long as I've known my husband, my family has held an "underwear in the stocking" exchange. His family had done it for years, so he made it a tradition for our family. Last year, my 7-year-old managed to raise her eyebrow at us and said, "Really? Underwear?" After all, she still believes in Santa!

My parents also host a mystery exchange where all the adults bring one wrapped present and the next person can steal it or open a new one. A few years ago we all got the same idea and almost every package contained an alcoholic beverage. Those presents sure got "stolen" a lot! -- Trisha
