Nov 23rd 2010 9:50AM My favorite Chirtmas was also during childhood when we had very little. Days before Christmas we had no tree and my sisters and I knew not to expect much. We came home from school on the last day before the holiday to a tree leaning against the fence at our walkway. That night we had a great time decorating it with what we had on hand. Christmas eve we heard a knock at the door and then bells fading into the distance. There were boxes of food and gifts. Santa had to drop them at the door because we didn't have a chimney. What a fantastic Christmas.
