Christmas Remembered (4)

Christmas Memories I cherish each one .

This Christmas as with each and every Christmas, I recall the love
my dad had for Christmas, from taking us to pick the perfect tree out in the woods,
to putting up the lights outside, buying cases of fresh fruit , nuts and candy.

First thinking about our beauitful big wonderful smelling  Christmas tree , we decorated with these beautiful
glass ornaments  ( Mother would say be careful not to break these) , the big thick silver rope, multicolored lights, the star sitting on top.
and lots of Icicles, my mother loved the trees to be covered with icicles . My job
was to water the tree each night ,  I loved crawling up under that big beautiful green
tree  and watering it each night,.the sitting there looking at all those bright beautiful
Red, Green, Yellow , white and Blue lights .

My dad and I would put the lights up outside all around the porch , better yet
I just mostly was in the way I am sure as he was climbing up the ladder tacking them up with
such ease and then I got to turn the lights on ............Beautiful !!

The smell of Christmas floods my mind , I can smell all that wonderful
fresh fruit , Those big Oranges , tangerines, Apple, Grapes, they just smell
better at Christmas. Even now they have the better smell .
My dad shared with everyone near as he would buy many cases of each
our stocking were hung up to be filled with Fruit on Christmas morning .

I better run to the store and get some of the good Smelling
Fruits ...

Hoping others will share their memories as well
