CHRISTMAS WRITING PROMPT #12: FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MEMORY

Yesterday my workplace had a Holiday Party. Even though I was on duty I was able to make it upstairs and partake of some of the food and drink plus socialize with my co-workers. A great time was had by all.  The first photo is when everything was being set-up by the time I returned during my second break for the evening the table was loaded down with food. Everybody brought something. I contributed some cookies.  Since we have such a diverse staff there were culinary treats from all cultures and traditions.

 

Yule Log Memories

There was a video of a Yule Log which I uploaded to YouTube. Hope you are able to view my video. You can hear the chatter of my co-workers plus I added some music. Weird overlap. The burning Yule Log brought back memories because years ago on Channel 11 WPIX every Christmas they played the Yule Log in the fireplace with various Christmas songs being played. My mother used to sit in the dark with our Christmas Tree Lights twinkling away just looking at the burning but never consumed Yule Log. I guess she needed time to think.

Or maybe she was recalling Long past Christmases of her youth back in the 1930s and 40s.

Much like me her daughter.

 

 

This is the Original old time WPIX Yule Log which is much better than my video. All you Native New Yorkers will remember this!
