I have many memories of Christmas. One is from grade school. I went to a one room country school - grades 1-8. At Christmas, we always had a big program. Our teacher "produced" three plays, complete with costume changes. All the students had a part in the Christmas program. Some were in the plays and others recited poems. We also sang Christmas carols, and all the parents, grandparents, and everyone else joined in. Not only did the students have to memorize all their parts, but school work still went on a daily basis. The teacher did it all.
The highlight of the night was our gift exchange. Prior to the program, we had drawn names to see who we would get a present for. The excitement would build as the gifts were handed out, and you got to see who had drawn your name. To top the evening off, there were lots of refreshments. Compliments of all the mothers who had students in school. The Christmas program was always a lot of fun. A fond memory. What is one of your favorite holiday memories?
Merry Christmas to all!!
