Reader's Diary #1993- Ray Waddell: Christmas Eve

I don't know that I'd classify Ray Waddell's "Christmas Eve" as a short story as I suspect it's true and therefore I'd suggest better referred to as creative non-fiction, but this is all just as an aside.

Set in the country side of British Columbia in the early 30s, the memory is idyllic and especially important to the author as it represented an escape from the City and the less-than-perfect life there. It's rich in imagery and similar to the scenes presented in Jingle Bells.
