For nearly 12 years Christmas Eve means a family treasure hunt. They have taken numerous forms over the years… When the kids were little clues were simple poems, drawings and limericks. Over the years we have evolved to Spanish translated on a smartphone, virtual reality clues, longitude and latitude coordinates, video clues, web pages and QR codes. The geographic area covered has been as small as the family room and as large as the entire city of Seattle.
This year there were no gizmos or technology. It was all puzzles and brain teasers. The kids never even put on their shoes. Completing the 12 clues took about 90 minutes.
Our annual treasure hunt is consistently a memorable shared family experience. We decided to share this year’s clues in hopes that perhaps you will start the holiday tradition with your family or community.
