My grandmother and her sister always exchanged $20 bills at Christmas. Funny what an eight year old in 1946 would commit to memory and think about every Christmas for 62 years. Ech year a couple of days before Christmas, two bank money envelopes would mysteriously appear pinned to the Christmas tree. One marked "Eunice" and the other "Ara." Through the years the handwriting became shakey, but the envelopes were always there near the top of the tree- "Eunice"..."Ara." When I came home from college for Christmas years later, the first thing I did was glance up in the Christmas tree and see them. Reassurance that some things were the same, at least for that Christmas.

Two sisters the "last of the line" from a large southern family, living on their old-age-persions, squirreling away money throughout the year in order to make a trip to the bank and surprise each other on Christmas morning. They always received the same thing from each other - year after year after year - love and a twenty dollar bill.

You are right all of a sudden it's December! And what a treat to get your Christmas card the 1st day of December. It is wonderful, as always, your talent is a treasure to your family and all the ones that receive "Very Truly, Julie!"

I agree with some of the other bloggers I need all the your Christmas poems in a book. Anna
