My mom had Christmas Day guests sign a tablecloth. After five generations, it's become something of a family tree.

Since 1956, my family gets out a tablecloth each Christmas Day on which guests sign their names.

For Christmas, my mom always laid the table with a cherry red tablecloth on which guests would sign their names, which she would later embroidery in white thread.
