I love this time of the year. I remember growing up in St. Louis and the wonderful Christmas’ my family celebrated. My brother Bill and I could hardly sleep on Christmas Eve because we knew numerous gifts would be under the tree when we awoke. When my younger brother Kelvin was born (10 years after me) we would watch “A Charlie Brown Christmas” every year. Can you imagine how excited I was when I saw that Hallmark is offering “A Charlie Brown Christmas” book that allows you to read the story and record it in your own voice. I joyfully purchased a copy on Friday from Giant for $19.99, and will record the story for Kelvin, as a surprise stocking stuffer.
For many years Kelvin believed in Santa Claus, and that made Christmas very exciting. Seeing him race down the stairs and rip the paper from his gifts made my day. Even though my brother’s and I are all grown up now, I still enjoy the memories of Christmas in St. Louis. It was the most wonderful time of the year!!!
