  • We all have our favorite childhood memories of Christmas. It’s my favorite season of the year!

    Each Christmas, my mother and father would buy a bushel of apples and oranges. For lack of a better place to keep them, all of the fruit and Christmas candy was stored in their bedroom. Growing up on the farm, we did not have heat in the bedrooms. I can still remember opening the door and their entire bedroom was filled with the sweet fragrance of apples. I will never forget that feeling and the smells of that room as long as I live.

  • In the past few years, my husband and I have made it a tradition to eat Christmas dinner at a nearby inn that serves a humungous buffet.

    Without fail, every time we go I bemoan the fact that my stomach can’t accommodate large quantities of food.

    I’ve seen people eat stacks of pancakes the size of Rhode Island and whole sides of beef and think that maybe I can do that too, but I can’t.
