A Christmas Eve Name Game

our Christmas tree

I have two younger sisters (hi, Morgan and Rebecca!) and as kids, one of our holiday traditions was that we'd all sleep in the same bedroom on Christmas eve. We did lots of silly things as we tried to fall asleep, of course, but one thing we always did was play a names game. (Having a namer for an older sister = hours of fun.) I enjoyed doing the Thanksgiving name game so much that I thought I'd extend our little holiday tradition to this blog, as well. 

In our version of the Christmas Name Game, we created imaginary families by shutting our eyes and choosing random names out of name books. For this version, you leave a comment with the size and shape of your desired family (for example: mother, father, two daughters and one son) and I'll use the same method to randomly choose their first and middle names from the full list of names used on babies born in 1925. 

 Your families will be revealed tomorrow, on Christmas day, in a new post.

Happy holidays, everyone!
