Blogmas: Day 23-- Favorite Winter Story

I've mentioned this before, but I loathe most Christmas-themed music, poetry, prose, and films.  I am not sentimental in the way that most of these films expect the audience to be.  However, there is one Christmas story that has always held a special place in my heart, Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory."

Like Capote's protagonist, I was raised by an older family member as a small child.  This simple, poignant story reminds me of those early days and, I have to admit, I get misty eyed every time I read it.

You can find a copy of the story here.  I hope you enjoy the story as much as I have.
