story hour

What a cool yule get-together my friend Amanda attended at her neighbor's house. "Be there at 8:30 am," the invitation said, "and a reading aloud of Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory will begin promptly at 9." What joy to attend story time as a grown-up. To sit in a comfy chair with a treat and just listen to this bittersweet, beautifully-written tale being read aloud. Such an antidote to the holiday milieu. Amanda said it took about 45 minutes and everyone was crying by the end, but that it was a lovely experience. Simple, magical. A tradition I would love to borrow and make my own.
