The topic for the December 17th installment of the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories hosted by Thomas MacEntee is: "Christmas Church Services. Did your family attend religious services during the Christmas season? What were the customs and traditions involved?"
Well, this will be short. When we were little Mom or Dad would drop us off at Sunday School and then go back home. That's about the extent of church services we attended. It was a very small church and I don't remember if they ever did anything special for Christmas. Once we moved to the "new" house, our parents let us decide whether we wanted to go to church or not. I chose not to. I don't currently attend church, preferring, for numerous reasons, to keep my relationship to a higher being personal and private.
