CONGRATULATIONS to our WINNER!
Congratulations Mary Beerley! You won the raffle! Our English Camp team left today with the Nativity and will be mailing it to you as soon as they get home 🙂
Rafflecopter randomly selected a winner. The first random selection had not answered the question about a favorite memory or tradition so we had to go to the second and that was MARY BEERLEY!
This was her favorite Christmas memory: One of my favorite memories is when Jim, my sister Kathryn and i were stranded on Christmas Eve in Austin. The bridge to my parents’ country home was flooded and we had to spend the night in Austin. We went to a restaurant that had live music. The band was playing the blues. And i mean the BLUES! We asked why they weren’t playing Christmas music since it was Christmas Eve… They replied that it was Tuesday and every Tuesday night was ‘Bummer Night…’ As i looked around at the lonely tables of 1, i was struck by how often i had wanted my life to be different, and i was suddenly exceedingly grateful for my family. My crazy, stubborn, stupifying, WONDERFUL family!!! 🙂
Thank you to everyone who shared your stories and traditions. I so enjoyed reading through all of them! May you all have a wonderful, joyous Christmas!
