Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - December 22, 1955, Sioux Center, IowaIn afraid in an old softy when Christmas comes the twinkling of coloured the smell of warm Evergreen the strains of a beloved old Carol and even the crunching of Snow under foot when i venture out at things seem to get me nil mixed up inside and memories of a dozen or More curl atlases go spinning through my while i dont think reminiscing is the Best kind of mental exer i am not usually Given to searching for any kind of exer Cise on Christmas i would rather take it just relax and let come what it is in moments like after the gifts have All been opened and the have been after the big Holiday meals have been enjoyed to the last uncomfortable Strain on the Belt after the riddles have said their prayers and Are tucked in for the after every Good thing that can crowded into Christmas has been crowded All like to sink into a dim the lights and spin the radio dial for a program of Christmas then i give my mind full i can go All the Way from alas a to Algeria in a single i can bring Back faces that have Moded away through the i can hear the Din and rumble of artillery on the Battle Field or the tinkling Bells of a horse drawn Sleigh on a hushed Winter i can feel the pulse of a stirring City or the Solitude of the North Woods in a feathery i can put my Arm across the Shoul Der of a brother who is gone for or i can touch the soft Cheek of our first born i can Hoar the of our Heater stove just after a couple of big Birch logs were tossed in and the cast Iron door banged i can hear the staccato of pop Corn exploding in the Long handled Popper on the Kitchen and i can smell three Christmas pies Cooling in the Back door entry i can hear the Distant sound a locomotive whistle that Al ways preceded dads coming Home from and i can smell the stale tobacco smoke in his Winter i can see three dozen Little candles burning on the Christmas tree and i can smell the parafin smoke after we quenched them i can hear the squeals from the big Horn on the radio As dad tuned and tuned to bring in choral music in Metalic i can hear the whines of the family Pup at the Back door and see him wiggle across the Kitchen floor to his place behind the i can feel dozen Christ Mases and mixed and the years have put them there in tender to be reached and to be held Christmas is a sentimental sea its hard to separate it from the things that Are most its hard to make it anything but even when it has been touched with its hard to1 change our because they Are clothed with customs and traditions that we cant
