What was your favorite Christmas memory?
The best way for me to answer this question is to highlight the text and image that is contained on the cover flap of my first book. On the flap, I call out all the wonderful memories I have of Christmas, and also reference that millions and millions of others share similar memories of Christmas. That’s what Oliver the Ornament celebrates; everyone’s own individual memories of cherished Christmas memories.
The magic of Christmas has come to life for me every year in this house and millions of homes just like it throughout the world. As a child, I’ll never forget the tradition of Christmas Eve Mass at St. Pete’s, and then returning to a home filled with presents delivered by Santa. These presents were all underneath our beautiful Christmas tree decorated with so many special ornaments. The wonderful gatherings with the Zimmermann’s, Eberhardt’s, Schaaf’s, Albrecht’s, and now the Hoerst’s are in my heart forever.
The traditions of shopping for the right tree, making cookies, candy, decorating the house, and wrapping the presents my brothers and I purchased from the Children’s Only Shop in Prange’s Department Store are with all of us to this day. In later years, the traditions may have altered, but mostly remain the same. Especially the tradition of the telling the stories of each of the ornaments that hang upon our tree, and what makes them so special to each of us. Because after all Every Ornament Tells a Story
