There are a lot of Christmas traditions in my family. I’m sure your family has them, too. Even though some of these traditions won’t be done this year because, well, it’s 2020, I wanted to share a little piece of my family with you today.

As I began writing this, I remembered one year where we had this giant animatronic snowman that would sing and also had a microphone. When you talked in the microphone, it’s mouth would move and it looked like your voice was coming out of the snowman. I don’t know if my parents got annoyed by it because of how much my brother (Tyler) and I used it, or if it broke, but that snowman only lasted two Christmases in the Faykus house. Maybe a hurricane destroyed it, come to think of it.
