I have been thinking today about Christmases when I was a child. The best Christmas I ever had was when I was about 8 years old. It was the first snow I had ever seen on Christmas, it started snowing on Christmas Eve. I lived with my Grandparents at that time. Mam-Maw and I had made cookies for Santa and now it was time to open one gift, I always got a new pair of P.J.s to sleep in on Christmas Eve. So I put them on and went to bed but, I could not go to sleep for hours and hours.
When morning came, the cookies were gone and Santa had left me a Thank you note for the milk and cookies. Wow ! Then Mam- Maw and Granddaddy said ,"they wanted to show me something." They opened the front door and there were Santas foot prints in the snow on the steps and the porch. I was thrilled beyond words. I don't even remember what I got for Christmas that year ! But, that thrills me yet to think that Christmas.
Of course the footprints were my Granddaddy's And I still have the note !! Happy Hoildays..
