My Children’s Days Everyone had to be up and wait on the staircase before we could see what Santa left! Xmas Tree sing at the bottom of our street – invited all friends in for hot chocolate after the sing. Surprise visits from children home from college. Christmas dinner – Red and Green Menu. Roast beef – baked potatoes wrapped in colorful foil – beets – creamed spinach wreath – tomato aspic salad molds like a star. Angel food cake decorated with candles and we lighted them to sing Happy Birthday to Baby Jesus. My Childhood Days Santa showing his face as he rapped on our window a week before Xmas. My mother saying, See he’s watching you – you’d better be good! Peaking through the register and observing my mother making doll clothes. I could hardly wait to tell my sister, there is not Santa. An artificial tree with real candles waiting to be lighted Christmas eve – fortunately no fire occurred! Best Xmas I received – Electric Wood Burning Set Worst Xmas I received – Music Stand
