As children we had wonderful Christmases
Mum was the local midwife and we sometimes were£the first to get the news if a Christmas baby
We loved the night service in the tiny local Kirk home for hot chocolate and putbout or stocking and off to bed.
But the very best Christmas ever was the one when my brother was by my mum and grandmothers brought home from hospital ( unbeknown to us other siblings at that time to die at home heíd had surgery , radio therapy for a Ewingís tumour )
It was amazing all,of us there for days his delight at a new golf club and our shared gift of a new puppy
Itís even more special as 50 years later heís still here Dad to 2 and Papa to 7 plays of scratch and just retired from his dream job restoring historical buildings to spend more time on his other thing clean water for all he spent his summers as a student bringing clean water to people and still does
Sorry for the long post

I went to a CofE primary school too. I used to love making the Christingle with the orange and the candle and then walking into church with all the lights out snd just lit by our candles. It was really magical. It was only a small village school I went to and I loved the run up to Christmas. We would have a party in the hall catered for by the teachers with beef paste sandwiches and jelly and we would watch old Disney cartoons and The Little Donkey by a projector on the wall.
I remember the year that I got a purple dolls pram and twin dolls. My mum was a talented seamstress and made me a whole box of outfits and knitted clothes for them. After we had opened our presents we would walk to my grandparents house and spend the day there. My grandmother loved looking after us all and would cook a fantastic lunch, with her own Christmas pud, trifle and cake. It was just a really lovely family time.

I have the best memories of childhood Christmasís.

I went to a catholic school so we used to celebrate the whole of December from the start of advent. We would have a lot of masses in school and church (attached) and nativities and carol services.

Christmas Eve was always spent the 4 of us mum dad me and brother family time and always getting my hair put in rags ready for Xmas day!

Christmas morning was opening presents, breakfast, then going to see my dads family (big family 6 siblings and 16 cousins) in the morning, home for Christmas dinner then all of my mums side (also big 6 siblings and 15 cousins) would go to my nans and have a big party! My Nan always used to host until 1 year my mum got so drunk she fell into the Christmas tree 🤣🤣🙈. So now my aunty has the party which is even bigger because all us cousins now have kids and partners!

Bloody love Christmas and family is definitely what makes it! With a smidge of alcohol obviously 😉😜
