It amazes me that even after 10 years of building this site still more memories get unlocked. It was just the other day I was chatting to a lovely old lady I care for about the good old days and she reminded me about the annual Xmas parties we used to have on Boxing Day. All the family used to show up with a little food (usually cheese straws) and some drink and we’d party on down til the early hours listening to our suitcase record player stacked with singles and a pile of pennies sellotaped to the arm to keep it from jumping. When the party was over the cards used to come out and my dad (new one) and my old one (uncle) and a few others would gamble for small change. If we were goody sad used to let us stay up and I would pretend I was drunk eating all the Famous Names liquor chocolates.
Can anyone out there share their Xmas memories?
