My favorite Holiday is Christmas…other than the fact that my maiden name is ‘Holiday’…I think Christmas is my favorite because my Parents made it so special for we kids…all seven of us! We were poor, but we kids didn’t notice…we had all we needed…besides, you take each kid and buy 1 or 2 gifts and put under the tree…WOW! It looked like a million presents under that tree! Mom was the wrapper…Daddy was the decorator! Lights! Wow did we have lights! I remember one year three houses in a row, my Dad and the neighbor men strung lights across the driveways connecting the 3 houses…it was so magical and we thought, the coolest thing going!

  1. Favorite Christmas story. When I was in first grade someone told me Santa Clause was not real. Late Christmas Eve my father packed up the entire family and we went down to the docks to look at the lights on all the Navy ships. The lights glistening in the snow was magical. When we returned home Santa had been there! Just goes to show, that other kid was wrong.

  2. Elle est festive cette carte, les bonhommes de pain d’épices sont parfaits pour ces couleurs, merci de jouer avec nous chez 52cct, biz

  3. It sounds as though your Christmasses were very special and you still treasure the memories. I remember that feeling of excitement and anticipation on Christmas Eve, peering out the window for Santa and hanging up the stockings. These papers look really good with the Kraft. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT
