Christmases of my youth hold a special place in my heart. I lived in a modest apartment, and we had the absolute best times. My parents, especially, made the time of year magical on so many counts. I am so happy to have pictures that document so many treasures from those days. Memory doesn’t wane, but gets busy with all of the things that happen in life. I try to pay the magic forward to my children, and I learn that in doing so, I’m full of a happiness that my parents must of felt in putting together such wonderful times for us. The traditions of traditions is gratifying and well worth the effort. The kids enjoy it ever so much, and I hope that they hold the memories as dear when they look back on these times.
