    as a little kid- every year i look forward to the school classroom celebrations the teachers would set up for us kids...This was back in grade school. We had our classroom christmas tree, the decorations we made in class, the family christmas concerts, the classroom party with drinks, food and the teacher would pass out little stocking stuffers...the classroom would look festive and it just brought the christmas fun to us kids back then...i will always remember the joy those teachers brought to us kids back then...

    I had forgotten all about those early school celebrations. They were a nice diversion from academics. For me it went all the way through High School, I use to look forward to those Christmas concerts and plays...

    Being in my late 60's, my biggest part I miss is the simplicity...

    I miss the snow, too. It seems the snow waits until right after everyone's taken down their lights!

    I've seen people decorate outdoor evergreen trees- so pretty. I can sit and stare at Christmas lights, like I sit and stare into a fire.

    In the days before Malls. Santa would usually appear in either the largest store in the local area or (even better) at the local community center. The anticipation was incredible...
