You must call 801- 489-2770 to make your reservation. grab her let­ter and wrap her­self up with a blan­ket on the couch and use the lights of the Christ­mas tree to read her mom’s let­ter. It was a let­ter of en­cour­age­ment, praise, thoughts about life and her love for her daugh­ter. This is one of her most vivid mem­o­ries from her child­hood. For 18 years, she has car­ried on the Christ­mas let­ter tra­di­tion with her own chil­dren.

“Now as a teacher she wanted to give a gift that was easy to af­ford and also wor­thy to give her stu­dents. Since she said few things fit that cat­e­gory, she de­cided to ex­tend the let­ter-writ­ing tra­di­tion to her stu­dents. For a few years, she was given a hand­writ­ten, in­di­vid­ual let­ter for Christ­mas to each of her stu­dents. She said is wasn’t much, but she gave much care and thought in her words and hoped it would help the stu­dents know how amaz­ing they are. Each part of the let­ter is in­di­vid­ual ex­cept for the phrase, ‘Re­mem­ber you are bril­liant.’ What a pos­i­tive and thought­ful thing for any­one to do, but as a teacher, I think it is amaz­ing the in­flu­ence and love they must feel from Mrs. Huh­tala. What a bless­ing she is to my daugh­ter and to all those she teaches.”
