<b>Round up the year with a calendar</b>
I love traditions--turkey at Thanksgiving, hanging up the stockings on Christmas Eve after the kids are in bed, that sort of thing. Another tradition in the Johnson house: I create a custom calendar packed with photos from the year's various activities and events, and give one to my parents. They love it, and it's easy to do.
Most photo-printing and photo-sharing sites have some sort of calendar creation feature. My favorites include the tools at [[xref:http://www.lulu.com|Lulu]], [[xref:http://www.shutterfly.com|Shutterfly]], and [[xref:http://www.snapfish.com.au|Snapfish]].
Making a calendar at any of these sites is easy. But before you dive into the calendar template on a photo-sharing site, let me offer some practical tips to help you along.
