Today, Genea Blogger asks the following questions on the Advent Calender of Christmas Memories:
Did your family throw a holiday party each year? Do you remember attending any holiday parties?
Growing up we never attended any type of family party. The only affair, was the holiday itself.
As an adult, I worked for one company that always held wonderful holiday parties for the family. I truly enjoyed dressing all the kids up and showing them off for the night. There was always wonderful food, beautiful ice sculptures, small gifts for the kids and a special visit with that special man, Santa Clause!
As I have taken time to write each day for the Advent Calender, I feel that my family did not spend any time on the extra fun stuff. I hope my children will remember the times we went to the work holiday parties, because I loved taking them to it.
