NEW THIS YEAR: Holiday Shop Hop (formerly German Family Christmas). With this past year being as it has been, I felt we needed to bring some excitement with our holiday shopping this year. One big and obvious change is that we changed the name. Our goal was not to stray from the tradition that German Family Christmas has been, but to bring a new level of excitement and energy to an already great event.
