I Remember Christmas 1931

From Google Images

My dear friend the late James Wyatt of Sipe Springs, Texas shared this memory of 1931 with me. He does not mention it here, but of course we all realize that 1931 would have been right in the middle of the Depression years in this country.


I remember my Grandpa Wyatt taking me to get a Christmas tree.

He found a nice straight live oak; we cut it, and I remember putting it up in the corner of the north room. You could call it this room the living room, and  it was the room with the stove.

Mother made ornaments out of walnut shells and chains out of paper rings. It would not be much by today’s standards, but I sure do remember it.

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
