What is your very favorite holiday? Recount the specific memory or memories that have made that holiday special to you.
My favorite holiday is Christmas. I love the lights, colors, smells, laughter, and most of all the treats everyone makes!
I remember my favorite holidsy like it was yesterday, but to be honest, it was over 11 years ago. The precious child I spent special moments with is now a young man going into the tenth grade. He was the sweetest child and is turning into a wonderful, honest, good kid!
Jonny’s mom and dad asked me to occupy his time while they worked with Santa. We hopped in the car and headed off to see Santa, get hot chocolate, a little shopping and ice skating. Jonny was my little buddy in those days.
We accomplished everything we set out to do and headed home. Few minutes into our drive, the van started acting up. A few minutes later, it went dead. I managed to get to a local convenience store and parked near the front of the lot.
Jonny and I went to make a phone call and get hot chocolate. We headed back to the van to wait for Pop. We cut the heat up and listened to Christmas carols on the radio and the news was following Santa’s sleigh as it crossed over Georgia. Children are adorable! The look of pure amazement on Jonny’s face brought tears to my eyes. He became more fascinated with each newscast. It brought back memories I had forgotten and I will never forget my precious moments spent with my sweet nephew on that cold, Christmas Eve.
