Christmas season is a special time in Burnet

The Christmas holiday season brings back a plethora of memories from my childhood as I’m sure it does for many of you.  Those memories somehow help to soothe the hectic pace that is our modern-day experience. I wonder if our parents and grandparents felt the same way in their time. 

Where we hasten to pick out the perfect gift for our loved ones I know my own parents hastened to create the perfect gifts. My mom would sew new clothes, make dolls, and other gifts for us, often starting months ahead of time to get them all done by Christmas.  So maybe what seemed like a slower pace to us kids, for our parents it wasn’t really that much different than what we experience today.
