Merry & Bright

Paperie Lane wishes you the happiest of holidays! Merry and Bright

What's your holiday tradition?

Whether you know it or not, all family and friends have one. For me, my besties and I've been doing a Secret Santa exchange since 2002. No matter where we are, overseas or in a different state, we've never missed a Christmas. Thanks to our wonderful technology, Annie and I even did the exchange via webcam while we were living in Taipei. Then the official gifts were hand-delivered when they flew in to celebrate NYE (dedicated much?)

Like any other year, we had brunch at the very cozy A.O.C. for our exchange and right next to us was a table that sat nine old men.  They leaned over to wish us well and told us that they've been having lunch since 1964! Isn't that amazing? 50+ years of friendship and tradition. That is definitely something to live up to.
