Everyone has favorite Christmas memories, and these usually revolve around the family. No doubt the reader also has his own. I have many favorite Christmas memories, but the ones I treasure most are those about my young family during the Christmas season. For aging people like me, quiet moments are usually spent thinking back to when the children, now grownup, were babies, toddlers or grade-schoolers. By dredging up such memories, the happiness of those bygone years comes back and stays with us every time we look back.
