Christmas Time

Original post made by michael casey, Palo Alto Hills, on Dec 14, 2007

The Christmas Season is upon us, I saw my first two Christmas plays from my infants. One did a Nativity Play, my 4 year old was a shepherd we watched and listened in the school hall. One of the carols rung out,a tear came to my eye. I never never never though I'd be married and have a family, just a few years ago. And now I have 2 kids, and the prettiest wife in town, all the way from Shanghai China, we met in the seniors home where my dad went to live after surviving a fatal heart attack just 8 weeks after my mum had died.He survived and lived long enough to hold my eldest girl in his arms. So at this time as I look at my beautiful children I thank God for such blessings, children.My girls believe me when I tell them that Santa is a close personal friend, he stops by on the roof garden of the building where I work.The raindeer eat the plants and Santa has a hot chocolate with me then uses the mens room before he is up up and away, Rudolf's nose guiding him past Saint Phillips cathedral in central Birmingham England.These simple things I share with my girls and you can share with your children too. So have a great Christmas in Palo Alto from Michael Casey in a foggy Birmingham England

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
