It was me! I was the one blessed this Christmas with the family treasure. Read this post for details: https://putaruffleonit.wordpress.com/2009/11/28/the-christmas-gown/

I feel a great deal of responsibility. For one year I must protect it until I can give it away next Christmas. I’m afraid I’ll lose it or my house will burn down.

I think giving it away is  more fun than receiving it. I’ve already written my addition to the series of notes and have decided what is to be included in the package.

I wonder who will be the next recipient? Tune in next year to find out!
