CHRISTMAS CAN TAKE US BACK TO CHILDHOOD.
WHAT DO YOU MISS FROM THAT TIME?
(Looking for happy thoughts!)

Yes, the tree was the best. All those sparkling, colorful lights, the magic of tinsel, and believing that Santa was going to pay us a visit while we slept. And there is no smell quite like that of a Christmas tree; sharp, pungent and spicy. I'm not sure I miss anything about being a child; I felt at a disadvantage most of the time!

I miss all my family from then, only mum left now and my kids and grandkids. I didn't know my father and his side of relatives and mum was an only child.

OK, here's a happy memory. We had been living in apartments until I reached 7 years old. That first Christmas in our new house was wonderful; We had a tall sparkly tree, my older brothers got shiny new bikes, and we had the pleasure of descending the staircase on Christmas morning and seeing a mountain of presents. That was one of the best holidays ever!

I miss the magic of believing in Santa and all the fun and wonder that brought. I was a late believer and got made fun of because I didn’t want to know the truth. We had simple gifts that were often what we needed with a game or a doll, but it was always a great time.
