Disclosure: I was compensated for my time on sharing the YesVideo holiday deadlines. All opinions and family memories are 100% my own.
When I think of Christmas memories, I always think of my grandparents. My grandmother would bake holiday treats for friends & family while my grandfather would search the sales ads for Christmas dinner items. Grandpa would always assist in gift buying which made my grandmother’s life somewhat easier during the holidays. My grandmother was famous for her crochet blankets and other knitted gifts. In fact, she made it a point that every member of the family had their own crocheted blanket as they got older. Gifts from grandpa were simple yet meaningful. A book (usually the classics) with a handwritten personalized message that would make any teen cry, a pen, and always a box of chocolate covered cherries.
I think about them all the time, but always at Christmas.
I #RememberWhen my youngest sister was 5 years old. Little Daniella was her Papa’s heart! One year she told Santa she wanted a red dress for Christmas. That’s it, a red dress! Simple right? Wrong! Grandpa searched high and low for a red dress. But not just any red dress, he had a specific dress style in mind. He finally found the perfect dress for Daniella. That red dress was more than just a church dress, it was a Christmas memory! He wanted that simple red dress to be the most beautiful red dress she had ever seen. Since that was all she asked for, he wanted to give her “that moment”, a “Remember When” moment, and he did.
My grandfather died when Daniella was about 10 years old yet she still remembers that red dress. In fact, my mother kept that red dress packed away in storage boxes. I think of that red dress and always think of the love my grandparents had for their grandchildren. Memories are something that should always be preserved. We may not have that red dress accessible but the pictures and home movies of her wearing that red dress should always be available! Now, I’m off to hunt for those pictures so I can remember when with my own children this holiday season.
