Nostalgic Christmas

christmas carolers

I was over at my Mom’s house this past week, like I am every day. She gets a lot of catalogs. Since I had some time to kill, I started looking through the Vermont Country Store catalog. This brought me back in time for a number of reasons.

First of all, Mr. Ken and I have taken many lovely vacations in Vermont. One of our first stops was always the Vermont Country Store. It’s like entering an old fashioned general store. I could spend hours in there, just wandering around.

As I was paging through the catalog, one thing really stood out, wax carolers. Oh, did this bring me back! When I was growing up we had an entire choir of these carolers, including props, like a light post. Sadly, they all melted together one year when we mistakenly stored them in the attic.

I remember those loooong days of December, when I couldn’t wait for Christmas to arrive. My friend Elaine and I used to sing carols in front of the front door spotlight. What a sight we must have been!

I ordered the carolers and now have them proudly displayed on my dining room table (see above.)

What happy Christmas (or holiday) memories have been triggered for you?
