My Paradise Moon Wishes Everyone a Happy Holiday

On Sunday evening I watched as the snow fell from the sky, the first snow of the season. When I awoke the next day the snow of the season deposited itself all over and caused cars to slid and slip including the plow. It was beautiful and new and even the dog found it fun to play in.

And as I get ready for the holiday I look out at

the snow, and recall so many fun things I did as a child.
I didn’t care how cold it was out; I rode my sleigh up
and down a hill of white cold snow.

I would go home and take off my wet gloves and boots and my fingers and feet burned as they thawed out. The next day I put on the gloves that dried near the stove and shoved my feet with my shoes into my goulashes

and went out again.

There are many memories in my mind as I sit here, the glass wax that my mother added color to and decorated the windows, the small round silver, green and red foil wreaths with the orange lighted candles in the middle that she put in each window.

The large colored Christmas lights that was wrapped through the branches that had so much space between them that the light radiated out of the tree which the balls and tinsel reflected the colors.

My heart is full of memories and good wishes for all to enjoy their holiday.

My mom got her hands on some glass wax. We've decorated the mirrors at home the last few years. I'll dig up some pictures.

Very cheery post for a cold day!

Love your photography - being from Louisiana I can't image how cold it is there. Happy New Year!
