HLA employees Bob (incoming records and social security) and Phyllis (kindergarten through sixth grade counselor) Broadus have a routine along with their tradition. Their Christmas celebration begins on Christmas Eve and includes playing games.

The Broadus Family has always had their Christmas on Christmas Eve. We start with a meal, which is now my homemade noodles with beef. Dishes have to be completely cleaned up and kitchen cleaned before we open gifts. After opening our gifts, we PLAY GAMES, stay up late and sleep in on Christmas morning. When everyone wakes up, we get our stockings!

This year might be a tad different with an 18-month-old in on the playing games! I’m not sure he can play Settlers of Catan. ~ Broadus family
