Day 5: Golden Memories

On the fifth day of Blogmas The Petite Mrs and The Coastie Couple gave to me...

There's one Christmas that sticks in my mind. It obviously took a lot of work for my mom. It was the year "The Grinch Stole Christmas." I was 5 years old. My mom made me watch "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" like every day. I remember when I woke up Christmas morning, everything wasn't there! There wasn't any presents. I think the tree was still there but it was bare, not sure. But I remember accusing my cousin, who had slept on the couch, of either not protecting our Christmas or of stealing it, I can't remember which. Then the phone rang. It was my grandfather. He said that he had seen someone coming down his street with our stuff so he stopped him. All our stuff was safe and at his house.

Apparently, my grandfather had been diagnosed with lung cancer and they thought this might be the last Christmas we had with him. So they wanted to get everyone together in one place. I don't know who came up with the idea of The Grinch stealing Christmas (probably my mom), but it was a good one to get us all together. I still remember, thirty years later!
