I was writing some memories down in a journal the other day and trying to see what I could remember about past Christmases. I don’t have any bad memories of the holiday and pretty much just remember certain toys I got and maybe a few that I didn’t. I seemed to get a one off brand of what I had put on my list. I wanted Pony basketball shoes made of leather and I got Converse made of canvas. Of course I’ve had very high taste since I was born and my parents had three kids and other things to pay for that were more important than expensive tennis shoes. It took me a while to realize there were different costs for different things. When it comes down to it, my favorite gift were two things and it so happened they were the simplest, least expensive things I got as gifts. Things my brother and sister got for me. The lifesavers book. You remember, the foldable book made of cardboard that opened to 5 rolls of Lifesavers on both sides. A simple gift but to this day I can’t see one of those without thinking of my brother and sister. The other was a candy cane log. It was obnoxious. The size of a fire log but made of candy cane. You had a zero percent chance of getting it in your mouth so you just gnawed at the corner like a horse wth a salt lick. It always ended up picking up every hair and stray piece of lint around the house because we never covered it in between eatings. It became like eating a peppermint stick dipped in water and rolled through the dryer vent lint. It looked like we stored it in a sock but that was just all the hair that it had picked up. Delicious.
I look back and realized how fortunate I’ve been. It was really never about the presents but the memories . Having my parents and brother and sister there for every Christmas morning. Not everyone gets to have that and I don’t take it for granted. I’ve found that a lint covered peppermint stick and a book of lifesavers and other gifts are only as memorable as the people who gave it to you. The holiday season is an anxious time for a lot of people so I’m here to remind you. The only thing anyone is going to remember is that they got to see you after not seeing you for a while.
