Remember Whensday No. 30 - It's a Small World

In an earlier Remember Whensday post, I told you about our visit to Disney World. Two of our favorite attractions were It's a Small World and Country Bear Jamboree. For Christmas that same year we received albums of music from those two attractions. It didn't take too long before we knew the words to most of the songs and sang right along!

Most of our Christmases as kids were spent at our Aunt Sally's house in upstate New York. I loved going there because we just about were guaranteed a white Christmas. Plus our grandmother and other aunts and uncles were nearby.

My mother would pack, or should I say hide, our presents in the station wagon and off we'd go from Maryland to New York. She normally traveled at night because then we'd sleep while she drove. I remember one trip with heavy fog and having to follow the fog line on the interstate because of limited visibility. I also remember another trip following behind a snow plow in a snow storm. The highlight of the trip was stopping at Howard Johnson's in Pittston, PA which was sort of a halfway point.

Believe it or not, I still have my stocking shown in the picture above. I get it out every year and hang it on our mantel.

Please join me in visiting the other Remember Whensday participants by clicking on the badge below. I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas season and here's to a great 2010! I'll be back to visiting everyone after the new year.
