I really liked this entry, your details and litany of interwoven purple Christmas decorations was great.

I think a little more backstory regarding the Purple Heart would have added some punch for me, but overall great entry!

I love the depth of family history offered to the child, in this story. How rich children are if rooted in such wonderful soil. I loved the individuality of the grandma. Viva la grandmas of this world!!
Beautiful story!

Great story - held my interest from first word to last. I would like to have had you embellish the part about the Purple Heart. But I did enjoy the little twist there at the end.

I enjoyed your entry on Purple. Great story told in an interesting way. The ending was a little surprise and was also very touching. I love Christmas traditions.
I personally believe it is important to pass on traditions to those who are following us. Thanks for writing.
