Childhood Memories - What was my wish at Christmas?

Each day as December 25th drew closer, I had one big wish - one prayer - that we would have a white Christmas!  At times that was  my prayer throughout Midnight Mass.  Some years it would be snowing as we left Midnight Mass; other times we would have had lots of snow prior to Christmas and yet other years, no snow at all.

Of course, these were wishes and prayers of a child.  Today I'd wish for no snow until all the family and friends have ended their travels for the holiday season.  Still it is nice to remember the wishes and prayers of childhood.  Again, life was simpler then.

Lucie, If you were here in Belgium right now, your childhood's prayers would be answered. It has been snowing on and off since Thursday and everything is covered with a blanket of about 10 cm of the 'white stuff'. More temperatures around or under 0°C are expected, to there is a fair chance that the snow will still be here on Christmas Day. Season's Greetings, Martine
