I remember as a child my mother taking me to Jordan Marsh" enchanted village and walking the Boston Common. It made Christmas so much more magical. Our childhood memories sustain as we become adults and Christmas changes a little for us. I am sure many can relate to your words.

What, no Midnight Mass? Who wouldn't hold out for Midnight Mass? Go home and open presents since it is now Christmas and everyone feels good.
I did enjoy your memories. They bring back days long gone when our family was all together and celebrating Christmas.

Thank you for this charming walk down memory lane. As a reader, it's nice to be invited into someone else's life, and to see the things that matter to the writer and impacted his or her life. I enjoyed the idea of your framing your ideas as a movie that you rerun every year at this time. It's a very apropos metaphor. Your childhood memories definitely inspired a smile.

I think you captured this sense of the timelessness of these moments, this sense of Christmas moments going on year after year through a whole life. The childhood moments in the church, surrounded by the adults, and then the moments walking through the displays in the park, surrounded by the lifelike nativity figures. The perspective is so distanced that the scene seem rendered without much emotion, much like watching a film. There is a sense of longing to recapture those feelings from childhood, but also the feeling of having outgrown them. estory

Aren't memories wonderful. It sounds like you had a happy childhood. I feel bad for those children who try to block the movies in their head because they lived a nightmare. Christmas was so special when we were young and they if had children we lived vicariously through them.
I enjoyed your memory.

This article, Christmas Movies, is a charming story of reminiscing and reliving some important memories that have helped to shape your feelings for the season. Nice.

Lovely Christmas memories. It works well in this story to compare the memories of your childhood to a movie that you revisit every year along with A Christmas Carol. You've brought a smile to my face. I remember also being lost in the land of giants when in church.

Mary,

These are beautiful scenes. Isn't it amazing how powerful your memories can be -- not everything of course - but the special things. So cool!

Some notes:
1.) But then towards, the end of the Mass comes to my favorite part, the singing of "Adeste Fideles."
--> no comma
--> delete 'to'

2.) I saw real reindeers and life(-)size statues of the three Wise/men on their camels.

3.) we are screaming with delight as we head(ed) towards the tree.

Thanks!

Thank you for preserving and sharing these very special memories! I'm impressed that you can sing the Adeste Fideles in Latin. I agree it must sound better that way.

    Funny I flunked Latin in high school, but that song stuck with me.
    Merry Christmas.
