According to the tour website (www.SaltLakeChristmasTour.com) there are only 62 days left until the 2013 tour begins! Those of us already signed up are counting the days. If you are thinking about joining the tour, “think” no longer and just do it……….. quoting that swarmy guy on TV, “I guarantee you’ll like it……….. you’ll be glad you came.”
One reason why the Christmas Tour is such a success is that we have fun. Lots and lots of fun interspersed with genealogical researching. One fun thing is that we all wear name tags to identify us as attendees of the Christmas tour and each tag has a number. Every morning numbers are drawn (Bingo circles from a bag) and the lucky winners come front to claim their prizes. The prizes from from the tour members; each attendee is asked to bring an inexpensive genealogy-related gift for this morning gift exchange. (Most bring six for we do this for six days.)
Why do we do this? Just because it is fun! Look at the pink walrus…… don’t think he was genealogy-related but he surely was fun. Please do come join us this December for the best genealogy fun you’ll ever have.
