Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories, Day 1 The Christmas Tree
One picture that stands out in my mind (and I don't have a copy right now to attach) is the picture of my great great grandparents (Wilson's) sitting in front of their Christmas tree. You can barely see them, it's kind of like a shadow, but enough to tell it's them. They are in front of a window with this Charlie Brown looking tree sitting on a little table (if I remember correctly). It is slightly decorated but they look content. I'm thinking they knew what the holidays were really about!
I have since added the image. When I looked at the picture again it first looked like a house plant, but you can see the few things hanging from it, such as the bell. :-)
