As a child I remember it well…..Christmas was always amazing.
No matter where we were, whatever the circumstances – my parents always made Christmas something very special for my brother and I.
The tree was magnificent, the lights, the music, the food and the gifts!! Always “so much more” than either if us could ever have imagined.
“Spoiled rotten” as it were.
Looking back I realize “now” ( as when you’re a kid – who gives a shit right?? ) that it likely wasn’t easy from them. Raising two boys ( eating them out of house and home ) the money to provide such a wonderful experience may “or may not” have been there year after year….but we’d never have known.
Year after year I got every single freakin thing I’d ever wanted. We were “on top of the world” hearing my Dad’s cheery voice in the wee hours of Christmas morning – “Ho ho ho !!”…..”Ho ho ho !!”
I bolted out of bed like a rocket…literally….I’m not even sure my feet hit the ground.
These are very fond memories. Things I will never forget.
So……. I’m far far from home for yet another year, but the memories will suffice for now.
I want to pass along a very Merry Christmas to everyone here at Kong, and encourage you to enjoy every last-minute you possibly can with your family and friends.
These are the people who love you…..no matter how far from home you may stray.
Merry Christmas everyone!!
