Readers share their favorite Christmas memories

Search for tree a reminder that beautiful signs of nature are blessings from God

Jeanne Huntzinger

Being born and raised on a farm, my memories of Christmas are indelible.

Every December, my mom, dad, brother and I would bundle up in our snowsuits and head for our big woods. Hatchet and saw in hand, we were on a mission.

We were shivering cold as the snow hit our faces, but we did not leave until the perfect evergreen was found.

I remember the delight of carrying that special tree through the snow‑covered fields. The beautiful signs of nature, on a snowy, Christmas day, are blessings from God.
