WH1PPLB M.D. AP Ntwsfcitures Christinas is- a litllo different in every family, ilut · Chrisltnas is good when a whole family gains feeling of w a r m t h and sharing and = when this spirit can even spread over into the C o m m u n i t y and oulsjdc world. · Lcl me tell 'you some of the Christmas traditions in our family. \Ve live in a small enough city so we can go. out into the country and''cut our own 1 tree. No one in our«' ever, thinks' of Inlying a tree, the 'cutting is so much a family affair. \Vc net the tree about a week before Christmas, usually on a Sunday. . · When the chjidrcn' · were little; they \vcrc all hundled up. in snowsuits, 1 and tramped the fields 'of friend's farm, spying out trees. The smaller the child, the bigger trees-he selected. Finally a choice was made. Dad cut it down, added sonic extra evergreen branches for decorations'. Mother and children cut holly. Then all' of us and many other families gathered around a big camp fire, ; had hot cocoa' or cutliio (depending on oyr ages), hot dogs..and other ingredients-of a vf inter picnic. When he got the tree home that aftcrnoo'n Dad and the hoys set il up in a corner of the living room, 'flic boxes of ornaments, saved f r o m ' y e a r s back, were brought down from (lib a t t i c ' a n d the children started the decoration of the tree', with liiuny remarks and memories as old familiar figures Were dug from the box. During the week many more decorations were added lo the (ice as. the Christmas Spirit rose and the children made and bought special favorites. : - , '· Gaily, wrapped gifts slowly appeared under the tree. Each 'morning 'IhC'Childrcn would dash lo the tree and read the inscriptions, sha"ke and rattle the weirdly shaped packages; with much speculation as lo contents. The more enigmatic the label the belter. Christmas Eve has always been a .lime at our house for a .very special parly. The children asked any. and all o( their friends, then we asked their parents. No. grownups without children was the rule. What we've done at those parties lias grown up as the children have grown up. Bui one thing runs as 'a chord through them all--the singing of Christmas carols. We sing all the carols we know, and we've found lots of the lesser. known ones, We've even made up special Christmas songs of our own. Very often the singing -gets beyond all the Christmas songs and we gel into ail suits of ollicrs. Una your, we had n French family--and ;n musical one ----who added much spico to out repertoire. - . · ' . . ., In the early 'years these' Christ- j mas Eve pa i lies, ended carly:'be : '! .cause parents 'had to fake young children homo lo bed. .'··· ··' _n Iliq ' laler years ' tables 'arc' turned and the · grownups finally give 'up. and .go/home 'while the adolescents slill- dance 'and sjn'g until Ihc wee small hours.
