My momma always used to make Christmas for me and my brother special.
The Christmas tree…
We would get a Christmas tree as tall as possible without touching the ceiling. I remember the struggles we all had trying to get the trunk into the base so it would stand straight.
Decorating the tree was always a special occasion.
Although my mom stopped putting candy canes on the tree until Christmas Eve arrived because my brother and I would sneak and eat one or two or five a day.
I loved Christmas and now 20 years later as my wife and I prepare to have kids I will give them the same memories of Christmas my mom gave to my brother and me.
