I guess I am feeling nostolgic, but anyway, when I was a wee lassie, my sisters and I begged our parents to let us open one present on the 23rd instead of our usual tradition of Christmas Eve. Well, one present led to others, and finally, we had them all opened. On Christmas Eve, we piled into the car and drove through town looking at decorated houses and lights and wishing we hadn't talked our parents into opening our gifts a day early.
Growing up, we were often strapped for cash during the holidays, and so to help stretch the budget, my mom cut the top off an old juniper bush........that was our tree that year, but decorated, it was lovely.........
Any other holiday memories? Please share....42
