It’s the day AFTER Christmas, we ate, we drank, we exchanged presents and good wishes, and now, most of us are left with the clean-up.
It’s my duty to give you a valid excuse to sit down, put your feet up and reminisces about old Christmases. Here are a few of mine.
That’s the cover from an old (vinyl) album from 1963. It’s a collection of Christmas songs from around the world. “Jingle Bells” is the only one in English.
Next comes the photo of my grandfather, in uniform. First world war, the back of the photo says Ravenna (small Italian town) and the date. Christmas day 1917, in my grandfather’s elegant handwriting. He sent the photo to my grandmother.
As time went by, pictures were now in color and that’s me, all smiles in my very first home, purchased all on my own as I was once again; SINGLE. (Southern California).
And the last one shows the Christmas tree on Rockefeller center. I took the picture in the year 2000.
Wishing all of you, dear friends a prosperous and healthy 2018!
