A Christmas Past
Glass of Milk and a Minced Pie
Mum and Dad had very little, but they still made Christmas special for my brother and I when we were young. They were happy times.
Except for one year …
We knew, by then, there was no Santa, and our presents were hidden in a locked wardrobe. My brother told my parents he had seen me find the key and open the wardrobe. It was totally untrue, and I was unfairly reprimanded. I think he was getting even for the time I buried his favourite toy in the garden.
That was a Christmas past.
It's why I prefer a Christmas present.
