What is your favorite holiday experience of the past or present ? Fri, 12/9/11 12:32 PM (permalink)
As a child I remember hunting for that 'perfect' Christmas tree. We would go to several tree lots where the smell of the freshly cut evergreens made me feel like I was in a forest.   Dad would pick out a tree and hold it upright, mom would step back and look at the tree from all sides.  Finally the decision was made and 'our' tree was tied on top of the car for its trip home. 
 
Mom would always make popcorn and cookies as a special treat while we decorated our tree with colored lights, tensel, and various ornaments.  It was a special moment when its lights were finally turned on and  their wonderous glow lit up the room with the expectations of all the good things that were to come during the next few days.
