Many times I was naughty but sometimes I chose to be nice. Once I got coal in a stocking for starting too many fights. I remembered the monkeys in the little brown barrel which I kept for a long time. Laurie was my baby doll with the rolling eyes. The joy, peace and love felt could fill a room of any size. The smile of our parents as the camera quickly flashed will be cherished in my heart forever.
It was always a delight to see that Santa and his reindeers stopped by to visit us at night. Although, we weren’t always sleeping, we managed to stay out of sight. Above the front door always hung a mistletoe for all our guests to see. Those who stopped by our home exchange kisses and hugs and shared all the sweets along with great cheer. O’ but I loved the chocolate, cookies and fruit cakes Mom made the most.
Eight stockings hung from the chimney and the fire looked so bright. The sound of the red bells chiming and flashing was a pure delight. The candy canes, ornaments and angel hung on the 10’ tree adorned with a pretty cream colored skirt. On the front porch the neighbors could see the nativity scene with Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus with the three wise men. The twelve days of Christmas was my favorite song, but the one of celebration was always “Joy to the World.”
The Grinch That Stole Christmas, Frosty the Snowman and It’s A Wonderful Life, were the shows that we watched on that day. Making snow angels was as fun as could be. The laughter of the little ones could be heard throughout the street, as they played with the dolls, bikes, skates and scooters with much glee.
What I adored most was the Carolers at our door singing Hallelujah - For unto Unto us a Child is Born.
