    Family Christmas Stories

    What better way could a family historian spend Christmas Eve than sharing family stories from holidays past?

    A website called My Merry Christmas.com offered its readers to participate in a forum titled My Best Christmas Stories by submitting their own holiday memories. From those submitted a collection of the 25 best was published on the site. There are stories of romance, humor, tragedy, faith and insight. The stories are wonderful and would be great to share with your family. Who knows, they might trigger some sharing of holiday memories among your around the Christmas tree.

    The Tucson Citizen online edition tells the story of a family that had that experience recapturing Grandma’s memories of Christmas 1920 in The Cole Family Christmas.

    Personally, I can’t think about stories of memories without recalling the poet Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales. It’s a great read, but it’s even better if you can get a recorded version of Thomas reading his story. What a voice!

    Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas for you and your family!
