Christmas!

RE: Christmas!
I don't have many "good" Christmas memories. I was taken from my parents when I was 7 and got bounced around a few times in foster homes. I guess my best Christmas memories are when I got married and had kids of my own. Our first Christmas I was stationed in Charleston, South Carolina. My sub was being dismantled to conform to the SALT II Nuclear Arms Reduction Treaty (say that 4 times real fast!) and South Carolina didn't have what I would call a reall Christmas Tree. Having grown up in Oregon, I was used to finding a Christmas Tree out at the Helvetia Tree Farm. In South Carolina they were selling these Charlie Brown trees for about $50, so rather than spend that kind of cash on a pathetic looking thing, we took some garland and shaped out a tree on the corner wall in the living room. We didnt have much to put under it, but it sure cheered us up.

There are others with our kids, but that first one is one we always talk about when the kids get all bummed out because they only got 4 presents last year instead of 6.
