Another Christmas Elf Story

Barry Worrell - December 2, 2015

The year was 1960 and Linda and I were married in June and later in December, spending our first Christmas together. With a weekly paycheck of $47 dollars and change, there wasn't much to go for Christmas decorations. We did manage some lights and ornaments and one little ornaments with two elves on the inside of it.  This was to represent the two of us. Definitely an "Ahhhhhh" moment.

Over the years the ornaments got broken (the first one and probably all of them by me) but the elves always managed to survive, so we just glue them to another Christmas ornament.

For 55 years our two little friends have been with us, making their appearance only at Christmas time, and very often attached to a different dwelling.
