Christmas Memories

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.
ย 
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 nice๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿฅด. 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! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ’ฝ๐Ÿ“€๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ฒ!!!
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 ๐Ÿ””๐Ÿ””๐Ÿ”” and Charles sings… ๐ŸŽผBells Will Be Ringing…๐ŸŽผ we have to have to go pour ourselves one for Mrs. Green!๐Ÿฅ‚20181207_1742244680460631780559066.jpg
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! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…
