Ok, so really, in Canada, December 26th is Boxing Day. It is the day to "box" up all of your holiday decorations, return gifts, clean up in general, etc. But the Huckvale family tradition is "Shoe Day". When Derrick and I were first dating, I went on such a shoe day. We all went to the mall, on seriously the busiest day of the year. His dad sat in the middle of the mall and told us to go and find the shoes that we wanted. Then, we came and found him and he would buy us said shoes. Everyone, including himself, came home with a new pair of shoes. Very cool. Now this went on for a few years, until he realized that there were just too many of us (there are now 50 just between his kids, their spouses and the grandchildren) to buy shoes for, but told us to keep the tradition going for ourselves. So, we do. Yesterday, we headed to Fred Meyer, and got shoes. All but Luke and Macy got some, because they didn't need any. Happy Shoe Day, everyone!
