Christmas past

Author: Joyce Mccall

It has been a tradition of ours as far back as I can remember. Even when the children were still at home to gather in the family car and drive around town looking at Christmas lights, but with our children grown and with families of our own. My husband and I continue to keep the tradition alive, together.

Before we leave our beautifully decorated home, we should set our ADT security home alarm before we go out to look at Christmas lights and decorations. First, we begin in our own neighborhood. Venturing up and down the streets looking at the lighting displays our neighbors have placed out to welcome in the Christmas holiday. My husband and I will often get a chuckle out of past memories of our children watching these very same displays.

We venture out of our neighborhood and to other parts of the city, wondering if your children too are doing the same with their young children. The scenes may change from year to year and whom you enjoy them with may be different, but the memories you make together is what is important.

Passing a tradition of family time together can last a lifetime, even when you cannot be together. Fond memories of car-rides to see Christmas decorations will always remain in memories and remind you of the good days and times past.
