When I was a little girl, Christmas was the ONE holiday that my family celebrated. I have fond memories of my big brothers winding strings of bright Christmas light bulbs round and round freshly cut trees.  Only when the lights were on and tested were the rest of us allowed to help decorate the tree. Mother insisted that we separate the tinsel strands and put them on the tree one at a time.

There were seven of us - plus Dad & Mom - that made nine.  And yes, we squabbled a bit, like all children do. Still, we loved it...but it was more than the tree and the tinsel.  The real blessing was that decorating the Christmas Tree was something we all could do together... something that mattered to each of us... adults, teens and toddlers alike!
