Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
We're pleased to announce a new sub-section to Christmas Past to be called Holiday Disasters.
We've all had them -- despite the best laid plans Christmas goofs happen. These are easy to laugh about now. Here are our first two installments in this series:
That's How You Eat Gravy -- In this story an aged relative adds a little spice to the stuffy Christmas dinner. A great memory and a good laugh.
How to Fit Your Tree into the Car -- Procrastination is at the root of many stories of Christmas disasters. In this story, putting off getting the tree until a freak snowstorm blew in caused our storyteller to take getting the tree to new heights of Christmas hilarity.
Enjoy! (And if you have a holiday disaster story of your own to relate, please share it with us!)
