So I joined a folded Christmas card swap via Facebook. Our names were given out randomly to a participant and we each received one card in return for the one we sent. My card came from Hallie who lives in California. With the card she included what she describes as her "tackygram" the at times dreaded end of year family update/letter. I actually have always enjoyed reading these, albeit I have not had many sent to me. Call me curious, or weird, but I do. Not knowing Hallie or her family I found it particularly fun. She also shared some of her families holiday traditions which have a lot to do with food. I also didn't mind reading all about that! Thanks Hallie!
