Most Magical Christmas — October Memoir Challenge — 12 Comments

  1. What a magical story! I’m envious. I only got a phone call from Santa once–my Uncle Jim, I was pretty sure, but I played along anyway, just in case I was wrong. I didn’t want to jeopardize the presents.

    Lovely post, Joy.

  2. Oh what fun! That must be a treasured memory!!
    My husband used to play santa at the elementary school here and we have pictures of his daughter gazing at him with a puzzled look like ‘gee. Santa sure looks familiar’ lol!

    • I think some of that might have been going on, Veronica, until I reached an age where it was more magical to believe that my grandpa went to that effort for us than it was to believe that Santa visited.

  3. Magical post!!

    I have a Christmas post planned for 1984…I hope I can capture some of the wonder and occassion that you have!! I leapt off the sofa with you at the sound of the bells!!

    Grandparents are great, aren’t they?!

  4. Thank you Joy. I don’t really remember it much of course. I do remember the pieces of your story that endured a year or more longer, the recliner, the tree (so modern for it’s day and out of place with my memories of old things at that house) and the screen door into the porch scrapped the granite step.
