Terrifico Tuesday – Winter Wonderland
Submitted by admin on December 8, 2009 - 11:30 am
The holidays are fast approaching. Lights, music and holiday cheer abound. Although it has been years since I lived in my hometown of Amherst, Massachusetts it still doesn’t quite feel like the holidays without a little snow. I miss getting all bundled up to make snow angels, go sledding for hours and then come home to Mom’s hot chocolate. The not so fun part about sledding when I was young was that boots just weren’t as waterproof as they are now. That meant that I had to wear bread bags over my socks, with rubber bands on my ankles, so that my feet wouldn’t get wet. And because my feet were frozen when I got home my mother insisted that I place them under cold running water, not hot. (There was some sort of logic to that, but I still can’t quite figure it out). So although I miss the beauty of the snow I can’t say that I miss my bread bag socks or frozen feet.
What is your childhood winter memory?
