A niece, Sandra Brown (who I've only met recently on Face Book) shared
a "Chamorro Christmas" on you tube on my FB page
and got me thinking...
about past Holidays celebrated on Guam as a child
Our family didn't have a lot of money to spend at Christmas
(Dad was a mechanic and Mom was a homemaker AND there were 6 kids)
But, my memories of those Christmases
are like a big warm bear hug and I'm always so grateful
for my parents, my upbringing, my family...

Mom always hid the gifts til Xmas Eve
I found this photo of a Christmas in the 1960s
geez...look at that "Charlie Brown" tree
I loved that fake Christmas tree!
Back then there weren't any large malls
Town House store was the place to shop for our Holiday outfits
Now, there is a Holiday Light and Snow Show
at the Micronesia Mall in Dededo
Today, I celebrate Hannukah AND Christmas!
(The Hubby is Jewish)
My kids don't have to pick...they're happy to celebrate both!
Who knows...one day I may have the opportunity
to celebrate Christmas again on Guam
that would really be special for me!
Enjoy the Day!
