Neighbors that had been friends became family. There was a tangible joy in the air. When the night finally came we recruited my brother. He was...

My Personal Christmas Tree The first thing you should know is that I’m a little odd. I’m sure if you’re reading this you already know that. My family had our Christmas tree in front of the window in the living room. My mom always did the lights, my brother and I got to help untangle and test them. For you younger readers, back in the day, if one light bulb on the strand didn’t work the whole lot didn’t work. That meant that you’d plug them in and if it didn’t light up you had to...

Every Christmas morning, even as adults, I’d open gifts with my mother and brother. I decided to spice it up. Where I worked we collected toys to distribute to children in need. Anything that was considered inappropriate to distribute was set up in our lounge and sold to employees. That money was used to buy replacement toys. My friends and I nicknamed it The Inappropriate Toy Store. One year inspiration struck. I bought a handful of things. I also bought a roll of wrapping paper that I only...
