Valentine Kisses

Every year, a tricky little Valentine Fairy comes to our house.  She leaves a note and kisses all over the house for my children to find.  She writes a note and assigns each child a color and tells them how many kisses they are looking for.  Then off they go, finding kisses all over the house.  Since Hershey’s Kisses are little, sometimes this can take awhile.  The fairy really likes to make it a challenge.

Sometimes I think that my little traditions are silly and that my children do not even remember the things that we do for holidays.  In all honesty, I had forgotten about this little game, but my daughter asked me a few days ago if the fairy was going to leave her kisses.  It reminded me that they will take these little traditions with them and maybe do them with their own children.  And that makes it all worthwhile.
