The Christmas after Ronda and I graduated undergrad we wanted it to be special. We decided to get a live tree. Only, one live tree wasn’t enough. We got 3. It was a spectacle. Ronda says the reason she loves Christmas is that people can be as gaudy as they want and no one cares. That describes our living room that year.

One tree looked like a small Christmas tree, one looked like a shrub and the third was straight up a Charlie Brown tree. It was sad. The whole scene was ridiculous. All 3 trees died after we planted them.

It also snowed that year in Athens. Our weim frolicked in the snow.

We left the heat off when went to Florida and returned home in the middle of the night to a house that was colder inside than it was outside.

What’s your most memorable Christmas?
