I still seek Guest Posts for one or more of the days of Advent - see the following
Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - first seven days.
December 1 – The Christmas Tree : Did you have a real tree or was it artificial? How big was the tree? Who decorated the tree? What types of Christmas trees did your ancestors have?
December 2 – Holiday Foods : Did your family or ancestors serve traditional dishes for the holidays? Was there one dish that was unusual?
December 3 – Christmas Tree Ornaments : Did your family have heirloom or cherished ornaments? Did you ever string popcorn and cranberries? Did your family or ancestors make Christmas ornaments?
December 4 – Christmas Cards : Did your family send cards? Did your family display the ones they received? Do you still send Christmas cards? Do you have any cards from your ancestors?
December 5 – Outdoor Decorations : Did people in your neighborhood decorate with lights? Did some people really go “all out” when decorating? Any stories involving your ancestors and decorations?
December 6 – Santa Claus : Did you ever send a letter to Santa? Did you ever visit Santa and “make a list?” Do you still believe in Santa Claus?
December 7 – Holiday Parties : Did your family throw a holiday party each year? Do you remember attending any holiday parties?
If you have a one, two or three paragraph comment you would like to include here, send it to me by email, or even in the comments here, and I will include it in the post for the correct day; likely along with my own comments. Let's give it a try.
Families are Forever! ;-)
