Last spring when we first started getting serious about what we could do to celebrate our 20th anniversary we brainstormed a lot of different things.
It is interesting to me to look back now and consider how some of those ideas came to pass this year and how I think we've started some new traditions.
Consider the gift exchange, for example. We've never done a gift exchange before. I've wanted to but have never really been able to come up with an idea that would make it feasible. Then one night it hit me: just don't tell anyone who sent the gift and just don't tell anyone where their gift is going. Let it all be a surprise on Christmas morning.
What is happening right now, as we speak, is that little gifts are flying around the world in this unknown fashion and on Christmas Day we'll find out what happened. There are not a ton of people in the exchange but when the rest of the MMC world hears about this I'm sure next years exchange will hit...
