Gift wrapping is an all day event in my home. It signals the holidays and brings in the spirit of giving.
I'm one of those who saves the wrappings, saves the bows, and saves the trimmings. I was taught from an early age to cherish them. I save the prettiest of Christmas cards and display them in the form of gift embellishments the following season.
It's a tradition.

And this is what our Christms season is all about.
