Christmas is memories. Come share a few of our favorites, from an elementary school pageant only a parent could love, to a holiday spent overseas in 1915, to office parties where strangers force themselves into festive patterns and sometimes discover that they become what they pretend to be. Learn what goes on behind the beard of a shopping-mall Santa, and what the reaction might have been the first time a family wanted to decorate a tree in the parlor.
For one day a year, the Theater of the Mind gives way to a warm hearth and a bowl of gingerbread - and when from the roof there arises a clatter, it's neither a faceless monster nor a Martian. It's Christmas.
