After the rush of the Christmas season is over,
there are shoes under our tree.
Why, you may ask?
The shoe fairy is coming to visit!
Not sure how this got started in our family,
(it's based on French lore),
but we celebrate the arrival of the shoe fairy
every December 31st.
On that night, we place one shoe under the Christmas tree
so she knows where to find it.
When we awaken on New Year's Day,
there is one small trinket left for us in our shoe
to start the new year off "on the right foot".
Happy Holidays, y'all!
