“When my children and grandchildren were much younger, we would have a birthday cake for Jesus because he is the reason for the season. They would gather so that Grandpap could read them The Christmas story book right before they would open presents. Christmas dinner was eaten at 1 pm and hosted for 30-35 people. There was a lot of love shared with our family.” — Nevada
