ceiling fund tree
The Red Key collects money for the "ceiling fund" all year. There is a big bake sale earlier in the month and money is collected on the ceiling year round.
All of the staff of the Red Key have a stocking that hangs all month. I take mine home every year (and leave it on the front porch overnight to air some of the smoke out) and save it for Christmas morning. It is typically chock-full of lottery tickets, PEZ, music and candy.
Russel sings Silent Night with the family gathered around him at the end of the afternoon - I missed it this year, but it is a guaranteed tear-jerker.
