Christmas in East Texas
Christmas has always been a special holiday for my family. We usually start Thanksgiving evening, or the day after, by decorating the house and putting the tree up. I spend the few weeks before Christmas, baking breads and candies, and finishing up Christmas shopping. We watch Christmas movies all during the weeks leading up to Christmas. Our favorite is “Christmas Vacation” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”
On Christmas day, we open our gifts and then usually go to my mother’s house for Christmas dinner. We usually have ham and turkey, with dressing and all the trimmings. We spend the day eating, opening gifts, and having a good time together.
We don’t see snow very often in Texas, so I have always dreamed of a white christmas. Maybe one day my dream will come true.
