I kind of touched on this with yesterday’s post, but here are my top 3 most memorable Christmases.
- When I was about 5 or 6, my dad pulled the A Christmas Story present scene.
- I went ice skating a few days before Christmas at Rockefeller Center when I was 22. This was a tough Christmas as it was the first one since my mom went into the nursing home.
- I spent my first Christmas downstate with Tom and his family when I was 24; we were engaged and finally got to spend the day together rather than some days before or after. His parents bought a real tree that year because I had never had a real tree growing up; they’ve bought a real tree two years in a row now, and I think they’re going for three!
