    I look at my tree, with its white lights, and ornaments holding years of memeories, and I remember other trees. The ones of my youth, that are so different for anything I can create.
    Colored lights with star or flower reflectors twinkled and flashed and I loved nothing more than to sleep under the tree, looking up at the bottle brush limbs, mesmerised by the lights sparkling off of toy ornaments. An ornament for each year of life, cherished and lovingly displayed each year with companions for my brothers and sister.

    As a child I always thought it unfair that I had the least ornaments to hang. My siblings all had far more being eight, ten and thirteen years older than me. I always thought some of the really neat ornaments were given before I was born, but Mom was great at finding ornaments that coordinated in fours. Each seemed to express our personalities to perfection.

    When we married the ornaments were given to us for our first tree, but, somehow, it never matches the magic of my childhood, eventhough I continued the tradition with my own four children. And Mom's tree will never be the same. She's upgraded to a pre-lit, with beautiful santas in every imaginable pose, but it's missing the love and excitement that only children can bring to a tree. The ornaments seem too perfectly spread, and the steady burning lights are without mystery.

    My most fervent wish is that my kids will one day look back with the same melancholy. The sadness is a sign of times filled with joy that hopefully they will try to create for their own families one day.

    To all of you, I wish you many memeories, both melancholy and joyful as you go through this holiday season. May you try to recapture the magic you found as a child.

      Well I'll be honest about the christnas time. In my childhood I kinda liked and enjoyed them. Along the time paths things became dark and rather upset moods.
    Now I don't really care for christmas any more. no one gives me anything. I told them not to because all I get is junk, that is stuff from last christmas every body gets the best nice gifts. christmas to me stinks

    This is such a wonderfully different vision of Christmas. I love it!

    Yes the melancholy motivates us to something more.

    Quite delightful

      This was just beautiful, lovely and it brought so many memories of my own special Christmases as a child and have often wondered, as do you,whether m,y children find it as magical as did I.

    A very nice write.

    You may want to take a look at "Full Circle" it's in a similar vein.

      very sweet memories, my friend. i have wonderful
    Christmas memories.. trees decorated with love
    and laughter, going to midnight mass in the snow,
    eating codfish on Christmas morning (that's a
    Norweigan tradition from mama's side!)...
    luminarioes outside lining the driveway... ahh..

    we had a tree stand that turned and played three
    different Christmas songs, i still hear it! my brother's family has it..

    thanks for the memories! have a beautiful
    Christmas J... let the memories fill you with
    that wistful feeling, and also enjoy the beauty and
    love in this year's moments..

    peace and love of the Christ child,
