One day away! It’s party time! Let’s get it started! I’m hosting my co=authors from Warm Mulled Kisses. Yesterday, we visited with Lena Nelson Dooley. Today goes to another of our debut authors, Marilyn Eudaly, author of “Santability.”
Marilyn has some special memories of Christmas.
What is your fondest memory of our holiday season:
Christmas 1971, The Day the Little Red Hair Girl Saw Santa. I took my two-year-old to see Santa for the first time. His house was a trail outside a Ben Franklin Five and Dime. She was wearing her favorite fashionable Go-GO boots. When it was her turn on Sanata’s lap, the old guy scared her and she started to cry. All of a sudden she turned toward him and threw both little arms around his neck and planted a kiss on his rosy cheek. Santa called out to his elf, “Quick take the picture.” That Polaroid rests safely in the family archives.
What is your funniest or most romantic memory of the same.
Christmas 2010. My original diamond wedding ring set stayed in the safety deposit box for some time. That Christmas I told my husband I wanted them repaired so I could wear them again. Dutifully he did as I asked. Pleased with himself, the last few days before we opened gifts on Christmas morning, he pointed out a purple velvet bag hanging on the tree. I chose to act as if I didn’t have and clue and attempted sneak peeks. Christmas morning, paper ripped off packages and gift bags emptied, he was so taken with his gifts that I had to remind him there was still one bag hanging on the tree. Our 50th wedding anniversary is less than a year away and I proudly wear the rings he put on my finger way back then.
True romance! And you’ll find plenty of that in Warm Mulled Kisses as well! And make sure you pick up your own copy of The One-Year Devotional of Love and Laughter. Marilyn’s article is for April first! (No fooling!)
