圣诞恶作剧 Christmas Accident


As children growing up in a home just a cornfield away, we could see Grandma's farmhouse and go to visit her anytime we wanted to. She was always glad to see us, and sometimes she would give us a chore to do which was usually dusting. (To this day I don't like dusting, and I ask my own grandchildren to do that for me now!)

I remember one Christmas morning in particular when my youngest sister Virginia was about six years old. My sisters Sue and Virginia and I had quietly slipped out of our bed while our parents were still asleep. We came down the stairs to see if Santa Claus had remembered where we lived. We were a poor family and it was so special when we found presents under our Christmas tree.

My little sister was a redheaded tomboy and she wanted a football for Christmas that year. When she saw a football under the tree she was overjoyed and in her excitement just gave it a kick inside the house. It went flying up and over the piano, knocking down and breaking a ceramic rooster ornament that belonged to our mother. Of course that noise woke our parents and she was so scared that she ran out the door in her pajamas, crying and heading straight for Grandma's house. It was a very cold day with snow and ice on the ground and she didn't even stop to get a coat on. I think my parents were more concerned about her catching a bad cold than anything else. However, my mother started the coffee perking and making us a nice breakfast. They knew that Grandma would take care of her in her own way.
