Ten years ago I made a conscious decision to start a new Christmas tradition with my family. While some relatives are asked to bring fruit salad or wine to dinner, I'm always asked to bring the games. Ten years ago I decided to make a large scale Wheel of Fortune game, and we've been playing it every Christmas since.
The game consists of a three-foot wheel, a large puzzle board, and of course "valuable prizes" to be won (lottery tickets and gift certificates). I get to play the parts of both Pat and Vanna. It's a great way to pass the time while waiting for dinner, and it's something we all look forward to doing together. It also proves that you can start a holiday tradition whenever you want.
