Murray grew up on a small (by today’s standards) farm in East Garafraxa, I grew up on the same size, 100 acres, in Amaranth.  I remember Christmas Eve service at our small church, as something very special. We were so excited to get together with our friends, on this special evening.  We wore our new Christmas pyjamas, and carried a candle down the aisle to our chair in the choir.

The first Christmas after our son Chris was born, we discovered we had grown up with the same, yet very different practices.  My Grandma cooked a goose, his Grandma a turkey.
Up in Amaranth, Santa took all his gifts out of his bag, and left them under the tree for each of us.  Down at East Gary, at the Burnett Farm, Santa wrapped everyone’s gift.  We didn’t discover this until it was too late to ask anyone else.  What to do??? In this like all things, we made our own traditions and practices.
The most important thing is that we both grew up in a happy, loving home.  This is what was important to create for our son and daughter.  We had kittens and puppies,  later snow machines and skis, a boat and a camper.
The memories of fun with family and friends are so precious.
We have been so blessed in life.  And everyday we remind ourselves, “each day is a gift”.
