What is a brown bag Christmas?

Well, it's a last-minute resort to wrapping gifts when time has run out!

Brown Bag Background...

Brown bag gifts have a rich history in the Sturgill family. (Thanks to Mikey!)

Brown bag gifts of the past usually included things that belonged to other people in the family.

But hey, it's the thought that counts when you're a kid! (Right, Mikey!)

How it works...

You put the presents you are giving into a big brown bag.

Seal the bag closed with lots of tape and staples.
(Mikey is the pro!)

Decorate the front using a sharpie marker.

Give the bag...

Open the bag and enjoy your gifts!

Even the cat loved a BROWN BAG CHRISTMAS!
(she just wanted to play in the bags!)

So, why the Brown Bag Christmas?
This year it was a fun way for B and K to eliminate the stress of wrapping gifts and enjoy one another's company during a hectic Christmas season.

2 Cheers (not Jeers!):

Right on! I must admit I have done that on occasion...namely the Bath & Body Works bag. Tape the handles together and there you go. Instant gift :)
