Do you remember your first Christmas with the one you love? Did you buy him – or her – a gift? What did they give to you? I do remember the first Christmas with my husband, and while I don’t remember what I got him, I know exactly what he got me. I’m wearing it right now. It’s a blue topaz necklace on a silver chain, and the reason I remember it so clearly is that when he handed me the box, I about had a heart attack. All I could think was that it was a ring.
I wasn’t ready for a ring.
I mean, we’d talked about getting engaged, and I was generally inclined to pursue that option, but somehow seeing that black velvet jewelry box freaked me out. Too much too soon!
Well, to make a long story short, that was Christmas of ’94. Obviously I got over it, and I’m looking forward to something sparkly under the tree this year.
What about you?
While you’re coming up with your Christmas list, check out some of the other stops on the Still Moments Publishing Christmas Blog Hop. Jump HERE for the list of all the stops. There are some lovely prizes, so be sure to leave a comment here and on all the blogs on the hop. I’ll be drawing a winner for a copy of my holiday short story, The Santa Drag, too!
And, because it’s not Christmas without a little music, here’s a link to one of the songs from my all-time favorite Christmas album, Oy To The World by The Klezmanauts. Yes, Klezmer Christmas carols. Is there a problem with that?
