Christmas 1965 – Decorating the tree and living room, making cookies and opening gifts. Christmas was always grand and festive on Montauk Ave. A time when we could be in the living room. Chris would have been about 18 months. Ken was 6 and it was his turn to put the star up. Tom was 2 and Brian 4.
Dad made that tree for the outside and every year filled it with fresh greens. Mom always made spritz cookies. I remember those reindeer cookies. We thought they were special.
What a sport dad was. He bought mom an iron! He also bought mom an Oster blender. Wonder if she ever made a well-deserved Margarita with it? Chris got a Tyke Bike. –DAA
