A fond Christmas memory

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I have lovely memories associated with the holiday. I grew up in Southeast Asia where holidays of all sorts of religion are celebrated. Growing up, I always felt like Christmas was one holiday that related to me the most. One of my most fond memories of Christmas is caroling!

Caroling is sort of a tradition in my family. My father has gone caroling ever since he was a teenager. Back in the day, he and his church friends would ride on the back of a Land Rover from house to house in rural Southeast Asia for caroling. And when I got to be a teenager, I would go with my father for the annual caroling activity.

I haven’t done any caroling since I came to the States. Now, I rely on my Byers Carolers to transport me to my imaginative world where I am still one of the carolers at my home church where the temperature is near 100 even at this time of the year, going around singing the songs of Christmas!

I wish you a joyous week!

  1. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours and lots of Blessings in the New Year. One of my fondest memories of Christmas is sitting on my Dad’s lap when I was about 4 and watching the lights on the tree. Oddly enough he died the day before Christmas about 25 years ago. I miss him but I still love Christmas, maybe more now than ever.

  2. Oh what a sweet memory Wendy. I love to go caroling. When I was in Junior High through college my Russian Youth Group would go caroling every Christmas Eve. We’d go to any care facilities where there were older Russians who wouldn’t be able to come to church. We’d go to all the houses or apartments of our elderly and then we’d end up at someones house for a little party. We sang in Russian and English. We’d get home close to midnight. Good memories…

  3. What a very sweet memory. We used to go caroling with some church folks several years ago. They would pack a truck with hay, and the ladies would all climb in the back and sing their hearts out. We would drive around and stop in front of houses to sing. It was fun.

  4. Thank you a lot for sharing this with all folks you actually understand what you’re talking about! Bookmarked. Please also visit my site =). We may have a hyperlink change agreement among us!
