This isn't a family tradition but one that our Young Women in our ward have been doing for years, and I have been lucky enough to be involved for a few of those.
The first mutual night in December, we divide up the neighborhood and with ribbons (garland also in the past) and decorate every person's mailbox within our ward boundaries. Members or not, everyone's mailbox gets the love. It adds such a festive look to our neighborhood!
After we all brave the cold and snow to get them done, we come back for dinner chatting and watching a DVD of all the pictures throughout the year. The girls love it! It brings back memories of all the good times we had together for the previous 12 months.
(the girls also get to choose an ornament as a gift)
For me, I am reminded just how much I love every single one of them. We have some amazing young women and I am blessed to even rub shoulders with them. And our leaders? The best!
Can't wait to see what 2011 brings for our YW group!
