BIRMINGHAM, Alabama--Birmingham's Kerry Grinkmeyer has turned his retirement into an opportunity to do all the things that he's always wanted to do but never had the time for.

After selling his financial planning practice, Grinkmeyer is now using his entrepreneurial skills to develop The Christmas Web, a publishing company that produces a holiday book and gift set for families.

Grinkmeyer retired from his 12-year tenure at a top financial advisory firm in Birmingham to launch the business, which takes a family tradition and transforms it into a book he hopes will become a part of Christmas holidays nationwide.

Twenty years ago as Kerry Grinkmeyer and his wife geared up for the holiday season, the Mountain Brook couple felt that something was missing.

As they rushed around to get everything ready the holidays, they couldn’t help but think there was more to the season, Kerry said.

The couple’s 23-year-old son was due home from college, and their daughter was a senior at Mountain Brook High School and about to spend her last Christmas at home before embarking on her own college career.

“Christmas had become this six-week period of preparation for what ended up being a 15-minute event,” Kerry said. “The same excitement wasn’t there. It had become all about the work involved in getting to Christmas.”

The Christmas Web is a fun activity for entire families to participate in, starting similarly to the Elf on the Shelf tradition, with an illustrated story book about how the Christmas Web came to be.  The Christmas Web kit also comes with three ‘magic wands’, with 70 yards of yarn attached to each (if you have more than three kids, you can order extra wands).  Unwinding the yarn throughout your home leads eager children (or adults, for that matter) on a fun scavenger hunt because at the end of the trail, in a closet or cabinet, is a special gift from Santa’s elves.
