For those who have now grown up (in other words, everyone reading this), there are always memories from holidays that stick with one long into old age. Some people are lucky enough to be able write them down to share with others. Think Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory" found in Breakfast at Tiffany's and Three Stories [F CAP, also in DVD CHR], or Jean Shepherd's memories that were turned into the classic movie, A Christmas Story [DVD CHR].
Christmas memories are also recreated specifically for children in stories such as Christmas in the Country by Cynthia Rylant [JP], The Trees of the Dancing Goats by Patricia Polacco [JP POL], and this one, of a memory which took place just down the road in Medford, MA:
I hope your memories of this Christmas inspire you for many years to come!
