Climbing Santa - a little tradition from my house

This is a little tradition we have had at our house for over twenty years and I felt like sharing it with you.  In the photo, you will see a little Hallmark ornament - we call him Climbing Santa.  Since my children were small, we used Climbing Santa to keep track of how close Christmas was.  Each year he started out hung at the bottom of the tree.  Every day or two one of the kids would move him up a couple branches and when he finally reached the top of the tree it meant Christmas had arrived!  Just a bit of silliness really but he remains a special little part of Christmas to us all.
