I have been thinking alot of my favourite childhood Christmas memories, lately....the traditions we had before before grew up, moved out, moved on, grew old, began families of their own...one was how we use to hike in the hills of North Idaho searching for a Christmas tree. I know this is a youtube video, but there is a reason it is one....I may want to publish it later.


The Perfect Tree

What are your favourite memories from this time of year?

My mom's Swedish background meant we got together on Christmas Eve, so that's always been a bigger deal than the actual day. There was home made Swedish potato sausage and we all drank root beer for some reason. We'd also open presents in order of age so everyone could see what the others had gotten. Christmas Day with my dad's side of the family was always sort of a free-for-all. I remember the drive home I'd be feeling, so that's Christmas. These days I am part of a Christmas Band that does songs dealing with how wonderful and stressful the holidays can be. It helps some people who feel they don't have a place in the holidays feel connected. This year Susan and I are going to spend actual Christmas as home with very little fanfare.

As the daughter of a Headmaster we had already had lots of preparations for the season at school including Pantomime, carol services, parties etc. The holidays were actually quite quiet at home as parents exhausted but I particularly remember making our own trimmings; hanging all the cards because every pupil must have given sir one, making our own sausage rolls and mince pies and cake and decorating the same. Carols from Kings College Christmas Eve and early to bed. Waking Christmas morning and yelling if we could go into parents room to open presents - one at a time in age order; puttine turkey in the oven then all round the piano singing carols till meal was ready. Pudding always dished out in age order, youngest first. Quiet time after lunch and maybe even starting to write thank you letters - whatever happened to them; music in the evening or playing games and then usually another eleven days of happiness to play with toys, read our annuals, practice our music and etc. Happy days which I still adhere to as much as possible.
