Christmas's I Remember - Anchored In Him

I can remember many different Christmas's 
we had compared to today. 
We never had a fireplace. 
Just two wood stoves but she baked many 
cookies and pie and divinity during that holiday 
time and she always told us about baby Jesus. 
Year after Year.
I am sure she wanted us to remember just 
what Christmas was all about. 
I do know that the highlights of Christmas was
getting out of school for a week, (not having to 
walk that mile back and forth each day) 
but we also looked forward with MUCH
anticipation to our Christmas programs at church. 
When we were little we got to be in the little plays. 
And each child thought their part was the most important! 
Then as we became teenagers we got to sing in the 
BIG choir and we had a special Christmas Cantata.
Oh, it was fun as a little one to wait till the 
program was over and see Santa walk up the church isle 
with a sack thrown over his back that was
filled with little brown bags of candy. 
Each bag had one orange, one apple, 4 English walnuts, 
a couple other mixed nuts, two cream drops, and ONE
candy cane. 
All to one child. 
Each one got all these goodies. 
I thought we were really blessed to have that. 
Then when everyone wished each everyone Merry
Christmas, we walked that mile back home 
at 10:00 at night in the snow singing
all the way home. 
Yes, I saw many starry nights on Christmas Eve.
