Top 2 Favorite Christmas Memories
1. It was the first Christmas for me and the Canadian. I can't remember now what he had done to aggravate me, but to make up for it, he pulled out the couch-bed in the living room, next to our ficus tree with white lights (we didn't buy a Christmas tree that year), and watched 24 hours of A Christmas Story - which he hates - but he knows I love. That's how we rolled back in the day.
2. Circa 1980 something, I was a kid in the back seat looking out the window as my Dad was driving us back from a family Christmas Eve gathering. It was late, the radio station was playing all Christmas songs, and every street we went down was softly lit with Christmas lights.
