Before my father died, Christmas used to be special to our family. Christmas used to be a great time for us. My father used to come from overseas and bring us new sneakers and clothes. I think we were the first in our small town to wear the Reebok sneakers. Christmas was also time for good food and friends. I still have memories of the smells, the laughter, the visits from friends etc. We used to really have a good time. I loved Christmas.
