Christmas Eves at Grandma's

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

My grandmother, Garladine, was an amazing host. She used these talents to make Christmas Eve (and most Sunday evenings) something special. To walk into grandma's on Christmas Eve meant you were greeted by a huge tree and mounds of presents. She always had this huge candy cane that hung on the fireplace and an electric decoration that I loved. When you pressed the button of this device it would make the styrofoam pellets "snow" over a Christmas town. Grandma would make an amazing dinner before any Christmas presents were opened. I loved her food, her Christmas toffee, and the drink she always made out of punch and sprite. The grandchildren would race through dinner in hopes of hurrying the present-opening along. After dinner was CLEANED UP (!) Santa would come. She always made sure Santa came and brought candy canes. We would all sit on his lap from oldest to youngest. After Santa left the gift exchange would begin. With 20+ grandchildren the presents seemed to be everywhere. Grandma would usually give us a game and one other item. There was magic in that tradition. Every bit of that evening was out of a storybook.
