Old-Fashioned Christmas - Poem by Marilyn Lott

I remember many years ago
When I was just a child
Christmas was truly fun for me
Compared today, so very mild.

We found a very special tree
Possibly from near-by
We put together our decorations
At a small age we would always try.

We would string popcorn one by one
Coloring paper in red and green strips
Gluing them together with
Flour and water to make them stick.

Presents were very few in our home
Most of them were home-made
But I wouldn’t change a single day
Special memories that will never fade!

    I remember stringing popcorn together. We were very poor when I was young and Christmas presents were not very fancy. Today it seems like you have to spend a fortune at Christmastime.
    Enjoyed the poem.
