"I Know Something You Don't Know"
My Daddy would always start humming "I know something you don't know" around this time of year. Christmas was on it's way, with all of it's surprises and special moments. We started off the season by watching A Miracle on 34th Street. It seemed fitting since I'm working at Macy's right now. It brought back so many memories.
When I was young my Grandmother Holling would take me to department store in Pasadena (it is now Macy's on Lake). She would make me a Christmas dress and buy me a new pair of Mary Jane's. We would get our photo taken with Santa and then she would take me to lunch at the department store cafe. I thought she was the most fashionable, fancy lady ever.
She made the coat I'm wearing in this photo.
Watching A Miracle on 34th Street also reminded me of my Grandfather Holling.
Every year, he would dress up in his velvet Santa suit and come to our home on Christmas Eve.
One year he/my Santa brought me a Mighty Mouse game.
Christmas is a time for memories and tradition.
I LOVE Christmas.
Enjoy the buildup.
