Christmas at grandma's was a wonderful time of the year, it was all handmade from scratch.
we made stuffed stars, candy canes, stockings for the tree and we strung up pop corn on sewing thread for garland, climbed tree's to pick the kissing bush as grandma called it, and made a Angel for the top of the tree.
After all that was done we went to the kitchen, made pies, cakes and decorated sugar cookies, which the sugar cookies got a little messy so we always saved that to be last.
Grandma always said that to have Love is to Love Jesus, since it is his Birthday we sung happy birthday to him, along with other Christmas songs, Grandpa and uncles would get out their guitars and the songs begin.
So today I try to bring what my grandma thought me, to our Christmas now to keep the tradition going.
I love the meaning of Christmas... Merry Christmas to all and have a blessed New Year.
