The Christmas Bat

The Christmas Bat has been a real tradition in my family for several years now. It was birthed out of necessity when my mom wanted my brother-in-law and I to put tinsel on the tree strand by strand, which might have taken hours. Instead, we pretty much grabbed handfuls of tinsel from the bag, threw it all on the tree, found a rubber bat left out from Halloween, stuck it in one of the clumps and called it a day. The Christmas Bat tradition was born.
