“Christmas at the Moore household (5 kids, Mom and Dad, two dogs and lots of cats and kittens) was always filled with sing-along music on the stereo or radio, marvelously scented candles and at times – uncontrollable laughter. My Dad and I were the ‘official’ tree-trimming team and I cherished the one-on-one time with him. He would string the lights and let me be creative with the placement of all the colorful and varied ornaments he and Mom had collected over the years. Once we were satisfied, we’d invite the rest of the family into the living room for a special tree-lighting ‘ceremony.’ In keeping with this family tradition, I collect Christmas ornaments from my various travels overseas. So far, I have delightful ones from Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Switzerland, Ireland and England.”
