Glockenklang, Forever

December 22nd, 2012, 1 Comment

Jacob (and Oliver too, somewhat) has taken quite the interest in Christmas music this year. Perhaps it’s singing in the choir at school, or perhaps it’s just him getting older, but in any case, Christmas music fascinates him. And no song more than Jingle Bells. I have recordings of it by several artists in different […]

Tree Classics

Update 4/12/2011: Our tree developed some serious issues with its lights. Tree Classics offered to repair it for us, but between the time we took it down and the time we were going to ship it, seems to have disappeared. Others in the comments below have reported similar experiences. It seems they may have gone […]

Last spring, I posted If Version Contol Systems Were Airlines, which I really enjoyed.

In the first two posts about Christmas, I remembered Christmas at home and with my dad’s family. Today I’m remembering Christmas with my mom’s family, and tomorrow — the last post on this subject, I promise — more recent Christmases. The first thing that comes to mind about Christmas with mom’s family is Grandma’s peppernuts […]

Memories of Christmas, part 2

December 26th, 2006, 3 Comments

In part 1, I wrote about Christmas at home growing up. Today I’ll write about Christmas at my Grandpa Goerzen’s place. The family usually got together sometime between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, whenever it worked for everyone. Names for a gift exchange would be drawn well in advance. Each person would give and get one […]

Memories of Christmas, part 1

Merry Christmas to everyone today! Today, and for the next few days, I’m going to write about some of my Christmas memories from earlier years. Then I’ll finish up with some photos from this year. This post is about Christmas at home growing up. One of the first signs of Christmas happened when my dad […]
