All sorts of memories come flooding in at Christmas. Each person's memories are unique, but Lawrence Webb believes a reservoir of common experience enables readers to identify with Christmases others have known. Memories in this book are culled from more than seventy seasons. "Some sweet and wonderful. Some romantic. Some funny. One or two are sad. Some, I hope, are reminders of the love Christ expressed in coming into the world." These memories are family-related: the large family of the author's childhood in rural West Texas as well as the smaller family with his wife and their two sons. Geographic settings vary from New York's snowbound Hudson River Valley and snowless Central Florida to Christmas Eve in Westminster Abbey and ordinary life in small-town South Carolina.
