A Christmas You Remember

Do you have a memory of a Christmas or Holiday passed? Would you share that memory with us on the Alzheimer's Reading Room?

I'm starting a new feature this year on the ARR.

A Christmas You Remember

You could also think of this as a Holiday You Remember, or I Remember.

I am inviting each and everyone of you to participate by sending me a picture (image), short note, or short description of a Christmas You Remember.

I will publish everything I received unless it is in some way objectionable.

Here a simple example of something you could send.

I remember getting a new Schwinn bike, 
with the shock absorber on the front, 
for Christmas when I was 8 years old.

It could be like that or a few short sentences. Or, a story. Or, like I mentioned a picture.

Please include some additional information. Your name, or the handle you use here on the ARR.

Please include the year, time, or the place the "memory" took place. In other words, add a little color. Please include your location. Like Cape Town, South Africa (I really like it when people include where they live in the comments section).

Send your submission to AlzheimersRead@Gmail.Com.

Please put this word in the subject box of the email when you send it - Remember.

I am hoping to get at least 100 submissions. So please don't be lazy. Shoot em in.

Participate along with other Alzheimer's Reading Room readers.

By the way you can follow the Alzheimer's Reading Room on Twitter here.


I actually borrowed this idea from our friends in the U.K.
