I am so happy that Christmas time is here! I love decorating the house, listening to Christmas music and spending time with my family. Each Christmas throughout the years has been special, creating unique memories that always make me smile.
On one Christmas I can remember firemen driving through our neighborhood, with their lights flashing and sirens blaring. Santa was being pulled behind the firetruck, on a trailer decorated with Christmas lights shining brightly. I was about 6 years old and I ran outside to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what I wanted for Christmas. When I came back inside my mother asked what I had asked Santa for, I told her, “a new watch to call my own.” I was so happy when I woke up on Christmas morning and found my watch from Santa underneath the tree. I thought I was the luckiest girl in the world.
As the years have past and I now have children of my own, I have some favorite memories that stand out above the rest. Those memories are the times spent putting Christ in Christmas. Every Sunday night we light Advent candles, read what each candle symbolizes and scripture to go along with it. Then my husband reads a story from the book, The Candle in the Forest and other Christmas Stories Children Love, comprised of various authors. On Christmas Eve, we have a birthday party for Jesus and read Luke 2:1-20 which tells about the birth of Jesus.
All of these memories are such a blessing to me and something I will always cherish.
