My FAVORITE CHRISTMAS memory:
One of my very favourite Christmas Memories has to be our Christmas Tree debacle every year when I was little girl.
You see, we had an artificial tree, however every year my three sisters and I wanted a real one. My uncle who lived with us adored his nieces, and would do anything for us. So every year we got into to his Cherry Red Single Cab Classic Ford Pickup truck and headed out into the woods surrounding our acreage, in search of the "Perfect Christmas Tree". We would look for hours, some were to big, too small, too full of enormous holes... then just like in the movies we would see the Perfect Tree... and our sweet uncle would chop it down and put it on the back of his truck, only after we promised to clean any of the needles or sap off his truck bed (he was a notorious clean freak).
We hauled it home with him driving 30km/hour down the gravel road (because god forbid he got any dirt on his freshly washed truck), all while he told us of Christmas when he was a little boy, and he would receive an orange and some nuts in a paper bag, he said he looked forward to it all year.
Finally we would make it back home right when it was starting to get dark, while we would bring it in, my dad complained that there would be needles all stuck in his wool socks. So, finally we would put our beautiful freshly chopped down tree up, and as with every other year, it was either too tall, too small, or literally had one entire side of it missing (which we failed to notice when we chopped it down).
Then as with every other year, we hauled out the fake tree, set it up, decorated it with heinous tinsel that looked magical to us. And the real tree went to live back in the woods.
Some Memories need to be treasured in the sweetest corners of our hearts.
I love if you shared a holiday memory in the comments!!
