This is a summary of my family Christmas tradition, Pulling Names.

Pulling Names

Every family has their holiday traditions. Since this is the time of year to be festive, I might as well inform you all about a holiday tradition my family used to practice. Up until a few years ago, we use to practice an event that was similar to Secret Santa, Pulling Names. The event would take place in two parts, each part will be described below.

Part I.
This part would take place around Labor Day. Majority of the family would gather at a relatives house and did what we intended to do Pull Names. In addition, we would have good food and enjoy each others company. Along with the pulling names, everyone would pick a number and hope he or see wins a door prize. To make it fair, there was a budget for both the children and adults age groups. Children prizes must cost $10 and $20 for adults.

Part II.
Part two would normally take place a few days before Christmas. Similar to part one, we would gather at a relatives house or rent out a building. As the family pile into the house or venue everyone would bring in their dishes they prepare for the evening. They would also bring their gifts as well. Another thing that was inherited from the part one, is the door prizes. Outside of exchanging gifts, we look forward to the drawing and taking home the prizes. Last but not least, we would enjoy the food that everyone prepared.

In recent years, we have not practiced this event. I hope we can return to practicing this event, and soon.
