December's Season of Celebration & Sharing | A Family Tradition Is Born |  Rockwall  A Family Tradition Is Born!    As part of my December Season of Celebration & Sharing, I would like to share a favorite of mine.  A family tradition can be started at any time, especially during the Christmas Holidays.
