    I think it's dorky.

    The kids never say anything about it; and it isn't in 'our' holiday lexicon of 'musts' so, meh. Not interested.

    I don't think my oldest will understand it yet, so we are going to start next year when she will be 4.

    Does anyone know where to get one?  My cousins use them but they found them years ago.  I want to start that tradition this year for my 5 year old but don't know where to get one!
