Christmastime is my favorite time of year!! I was a foster kid growing up, and it was always so fun to see how all the different families I stayed with celebrated holidays. My new family is Dunder Mifflin (I like that with this family, I donít have to change my last name again), and I would love to hear about your best holiday memories from the past, before I was a part of this great place. God bless us, every one!
No one brings our family more joy than 90-year-old Aunt Alma. She's funny, warm, and a great storyteller. She was around before the car, before the airplane, before plumbing reached all of America. And because of her age, she's not always around mentally - as sometimes happens in the autumn of life. A few Christmases ago, we were at my parents setting up for what we thought would be a run of the mill holiday - until Aunt Alma pulled in the driveway, crashing into my Uncle's brand new RAV4. Oblivious, she shuffled inside and exclaimed, "Happy Easter!" Not wanting to upset her, we hid the poinsettias and wreaths and put a sheet over the Christmas tree. We took the candy canes out of their baskets and replaced them with eggs from the fridge. We called the turkey a ham, and the mincemeat pie an Easter frittata. It all seemed to be working. And then Michael busted in wearing his Santa suit, holding a snow globe and a gingerbread house, and gave Alma a five-minute hug. Everyone stared in silence - not a creature stirred, not even a mouse. Luckily Alma started laughing hysterically. She was mad we didn't correct her. All in all, it ended up being one of the most memorable Halpert Christmases to date.
