One year when I was about 12 or so, my family and I decided to go camping Christmas week. We loaded up the camper with our supplies and all our Christmas presents and headed for the lake. One of the first things we did after we go the camper set up was to find a Christmas tree. now, mind you we were camping, so finding a tall Christmas tree like we would have at home was not feasible. We bundled up in our coats, hats and gloves and walked around the park. And there it was…our Charlie Brown Christmas tree!!
That trip was so much fun! We rode our bicycles around the park, watched Christmas movies, had hot chocolate with marshmallows.
But, after fully waking up, I had a great day! We opened presents in the camper, played with our toys and stuff, watched more Christmas movies and generally just had a lot of fun. That night we built a huge bonfire with the wrapping paper and boxes from our presents.
That is one Christmas I will never forget! I have plans to do this with my son one year soon so that he can experience this as well. (He’ll be the one to wake me up though!)
Tell me some of your favorite Christmas memories!!
