Merry Christmas from Franklin, NC
It's Christmas Eve morning and Jack Frost is nipping at my nose. We are suppose to have a White Christmas this year here in Franklin, NC.
I grew up in Glens Falls, NY where we had a White Christmas every year that I can remember.
I loved to ice skate, build igloo's (forts for snowball fights), sledding down Pete's Hill, and hitching rides on the back of cars. We always lost a glove doing that.
Christmas Eve us kids put on plays for the grown ups and they sang Christmas songs. My favorite was my mother and her two sisters singing Silent Night in harmony. I miss that.
On Christmas morning we couldn't wait to see what Saint Nick had brought us. It was the earliest I would ever get up as a kid. Then it was the family breakfast, get dressed and out the door I would go with what ever was my favorite gift to show off to my friends.
Now that I am all grown up & we have Christmas Dinner at my Mother-in-laws Italian style. The traditional lasagna, garlic bread and a salad. We open our gifts on Christmas Eve after dinner, watch a little TV and then have dessert.
Merry Christmas from Franklin, NC &I hope it does snow here, I want to make a snowman!
