12/12/10 Tales of Christmas Past

I know all my Christmas stories of long ago... but I don't know Dan's. So, I asked!

As he tells it, he grew up poor, but they always celebrated Christmas with some traditions. Each Christmas Eve, the three siblings would open their Christmas presents. Each Christmas morning, Santa would leave one additional Christmas Present for the three children to open on Christmas Day. His favorite gift was a Tonka Truck that he got when he was 7 or 8 years old. 

He doesn't recall any special foods or celebrations with family... but I admit that I'm putting the pressure on while he's playing x-box... he may not be fully engaged in the conversation. :)
