What was your most memorable Christmas?

What year was it?
Where were you?

easy...

My first Christmas in Florida, 1989.  It snowed...

I got my boys power wheels jeeps and my daughter her first "kitchen".  I have pictures of it all.

I was living in a three bedroom upstairs apartment, active duty in the Navy and life was good.

Quantico, Virginia
1969

It was what I thought would be my last Christmas.

It was late Christmas Eve night.  Almost everyone else had gone home.
I went out in my winter uniform, including the long “horse blanket” coat.

There near the water was the base HQ, and in front of it was a tall
pine with colored lights that glowed.

There was snow on the ground and snow in the air.

It was just me and the night
and the falling snow
and the Christmas lights
on a single tree.

I’m there now...

A long time past, in Pennsylvania…

4 years old…it was Christmas Eve, and Santa came to visit our house. There were only 4 of us sisters then…and Mom was pregnant with my brother.  

My Grandpa was in the kitchen cutting bread to make stuffing, and he sliced-off some of the crusts for us kids. I remember that bread crust tasting so good!  I know now it was the flavors of the celery and onion he had previously chopped on the cutting board.  

Well, we were munching on those crusts when there was a knock on the door….there was much excitement!  Then he came in…it was Santa!  He gave each of us girls a gift, and was on his way.

This is the very first Christmas I remember, and the last one with my Grandfather.  

While reminiscing about that Christmas, my Mom laughed, and said that Santa was one of our neighbors…not so magical.

It was so long ago…but I can still feel the wonder of that very special night.
