A Christmas Memory

One of the things I remember most about Christmas is the tinsel my grandmother used to decorate her tree with. She had a large fir-tree (it does look larger when you are very little) with lights of all colors and these long dangling tinsels. These were placed with care on each branch, making the tree glow with Christmas spirit.

Now is the time for me to decorate my tree and place those tinsels on my tree, hoping that my grandkids will have lasting memories of their own.

Sometimes, we spend a lot of time trying to create that perfect Holiday, when all that would make it special would be something simple.

What are some of your favorite Christmas memories? I’d love to hear what they are.
