Mary’s Christmas Memory
When I was a kid, my favorite part about the holidays was getting to decorate the Christmas tree. I had two older brothers and one younger brother who helped, but did not love it as much as my dad and I. Every year we would walk to the corner store to pick out our tree and drag it home to decorate because we did not have a car yet! I always loved getting to spend time with my family around the holidays. Mom was always in the kitchen making plum pudding and minced hearts, it always was so fascinating watching her go through the steps. I always remember going to bed super early on Christmas Eve hoping that the sooner I went to sleep, the sooner Santa would arrive.
