My brother and I were naughty as hell and I can’t believe my parents never figured it out. We broke furniture and tried to hide the evidence. This was after we set fire to the family car and nearly blinded ourselves with a chemical explosion in the kitchen. We definitely deserved a lump of coal every December! Christmas Back Then is a confession of youthful antics that will warm your heart and make you laugh. Journey back to the early 1980’s for a nostalgic–and odd–Christmas story.
This quick little read will surely get you in the holiday spirit with fun retellings of a Christmas past. I was really laughing out loud at how sneaky Todd (as young boy(, is trying to track down his gifts and their hiding places. I know each and every one of you reading this has tried to figure out where your parents hid your gifts. He really brings to life the excitement of growing up and becoming a grown up in a neighborhood full of kids your own age. My favorite part of the story is how his mother made a football referee outfit for him because that is what he wanted to be and his parents encourage it. As a mother, that really hit home because you always want your children to be exactly what makes them happy, no matter what.
