Christmas excitement in The Stick Family Tree.

‘Here in The Stick Family Tree we love Christmas!  The whole neighbourhood is a festive forest and we stick to tradition with delight.  On Christmas Eve, we enjoy cosying up together for a classic game of pick-up sticks, we wrap all our presents with sticky tape and I bake my speciality – sticky toffee pudding!

The Stick Children Three never sleep the night before Christmas.  They’re too busy climbing our Tree House for the perfect lookout spot for Santa and his sleigh.  One year they caught him polishing off our roasted chestnuts and mince pieces we left out for him by the branch door.  We must make an extra batch this year!

What we love most about Christmas is singing carols after our woodland walk.  The Stick Children do a three part harmony whilst my Stick Man beats away with his drum sticks.  We’re quite the tuneful Family Tree.


Merry Christmas one and all!

Lots of love, The Stick Family xx’
