For Day 3 of Merry Blogmas I have decided to do Christmas Childhood Memories. One of my first childhood memories is of a silver artificial Christmas that my 2 younger sisters and I would help put up but that wasn’t the cool part. The cool part was this color wheel with the colors of blues, yellows, greens and red. The color wheel we set up was shined on the silver Christmas tree. So when the wheel stopped on a certain color that’s what color the tree looked like. It was really pretty. The best part though was we opened 1 Christmas present on Christmas Eve and opened the rest on Christmas.
My 2nd childhood memory as a kid was when my Dad’s place of work went on strike and my grandfather helped mom get Santa’s gifts out of the attic. This particular Christmas Santa’s gifts were dolls that were as tall as my sisters and I if not taller. The dolls fell down the attic steps. We had a noisy Santa Clause that year.
My 3rd childhood memory was when my sisters and I were older I put a red Santa’s hat on my Grandfather’s head and then I took a picture as did someone else because I have that picture of him in the Santa’s hat with Grandma in the background framed. I look at it every morning.
These are the three childhood memories that stand out. I have plenty more memories but feel it in the best interest of time, I’m not listing them.
The Colors of the American Flag are Red, White and Blue with Stars in the Upper Left Hand Corner and with the Fourth OF July just around the corner I thought I would write a poem about the American Flag in which I respect a lot.
Red is for the blood that shed during wartime by the men and women who fight for our freedom~White is for comfort that God gives when a soldier is hurt or dies~Blue is what the Families and friends of the soldier feel when they’re not around ~And the stars stand for all 50 states and the privileges some of these soldiers gave their lives for.
