What’s your favorite Christmas memory?
Tis’ the season and I thought I’d share a story.
Tony and I have a weird holiday tradition that we have been doing every Christmas season for years.
Years ago, Tony and I lived together in what was our first apartment. We were so young. Brandon was about two years old…it was two years before we were married and a little over three years before Taylor came along.
We lived on the first floor and our next door neighbor (Mrs. Green) was not unknown for having more than a few drinks over the weekend. Anyway, this particular Christmas, Mrs. Green was feeling real… REAL nice🥴🥴. She had Charles Brown’s “Please Come Home for Christmas” on the turntable All Christmas Eve and into most of Christmas morning! And the record was scratched! 😱😩🥴🤨💽📀😴😲!!!
Well, our tradition for years now, is that when ever we hear the song, Please Come for Christmas, we have to raise a toast to Mrs. Green! As soon as those bells ring 🔔🔔🔔 and Charles sings… 🎼Bells Will Be Ringing…🎼 we have to have to go pour ourselves one for Mrs. Green!🥂
We were crazy young back then and times were rough in that little one bedroom apartment but that is one of my favorite Christmas memories! To Mrs. Green! I hope that man finally came home for Christmas, but if not for Christmas… New Years Eve! 😉🎄🎅
