Hoop Snakes and Christmas
My fondest memories of Christmas now that I’m older is my dad waking my brother sister and I every Christmas morning. He would come in the room and wake us up by saying in his excited voice. HOOP SNAKES, HOOP SNAKES GET YOUR BOOTS, SANTA CLAUS HAS BEEN HERE. Up until the time I left home dad would wake the house up by saying that phrase to get us up. That tradition has been carried on to my brother and sister when waking up their kids on Christmas. When calling each other on the phone at Christmas we still refer to HOOP SNAKES. I just wanted to share that tradition.
