Journal your Christmas, Day 12
How many of you have wonderful childhood memories of your Christmas past? I know I have many and have shared them with you today. Journaling: I have many fond memories of my childhood Christmases. On Christmas Eve we
would visit friends of my parents and then head home and prepare for Santa’s
arrival. We would receive new pj’s and go off to bed in anticipation of the next
Christmas morning we would awake early full of excitement. We always began
with our stocking and then our gifts from Santa. Mom would prepare a big
breakfast and we would head off to church.
Lunch was always at my Grandma and Grandpa Laurens’ house. All of the cousins
would come to visit and we would play and open gifts.
Christmas dinner was always hosted by Auntie Linda and Uncle Fonce. Again, all
of the family was together for an evening of celebration.
Today Christmas is pretty much the same. Some of the people are no longer with us,
Auntie Linda and family is in Fla. and the children are now grown with their own
families, but the holiday remains the same. Time spent with family, children excited
about Santa and friends coming together to celebrate all of the blessings in their lives.
Take a few minutes today and bring back the memories of your Christmas past.
