Today I am thankful to begin our holiday celebration. Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, we decorate the house and put up our Christmas tree. We bake cookies, write letters to Santa, turn on the Christmas music, and spend the entire day getting into the holiday spirit. We celebrate the return of our favorite little elf, Willis. Each year he returns home to us from Santa's village in the North Pole. The kids have been writing letters to him and counting down the days, they can hardly wait to see Willis.
