Thanks for the Memories | Christmas

Remember that old Bob Hope song?  At Christmas time we become nostalgic as we start pulling out the Christmas decorations that we so lovingly packed from last year.  A lot of them are decorations that our kids made when they were growing up.  Some of them are old and worn, yet we can’t part with them!  So they go on the tree along with all the fancy ones and we are more proud of them than any of the others.  Memories are what makes Christmas time special!  We celebrate the birth of Christ and come together with our family and friends and it’s a magical time of year.

The gift giving has gotten out of hand in some cases, however.  I have been hearing “horror stories” about people getting seriously hurt and even killed at some of the holiday sales!!  What gift could possibly be that important? When we talk about “the good old days” some people laugh, but I don’t remember anything like that ever happening back then.  When I was a kid we strung popcorn around the tree,  made homemade gifts, baked all kinds of goodies, and sang Christmas carols.  Santa always brought me what he could, and I was so excited on Christmas morning!  I remember one year I got a pogo stick and almost drove my mother crazy hopping around on the wood floors!  Remember those?

Holiday memories of our children growing up, and now our grandchildren making new memories are the best times of all.  So there are a lot of perks to being older and having all of these things to look back on.  I think maybe people today should realize that it is those things that they will remember as the years go by, and the gifts they were given are long gone.

How ever you celebrate the holidays, I hope that you continue to make beautiful memories!
