Christmas Eve
December 19, 2012 | 11:26 AM

Always love your family stories. I have wonderful memories of Christmas Eve on Van Sicklen St. We went to Our Lady of Grace.

I still have a cheap plastic plug-in church that my Dad bought on the street (86th St) after work. When he came home, he was emanating "cold". It was a particularly freezing night. Mom plugged in the church and the gold plastic doors opened to reveal parchment with a print of Mary, Jesus and an angel as it played Silent Night.

Thanks for your food memories. Brings back the best of my childhood.

Buon Natali,
