It is used to be the month when i used to eat plenty cotton candy and make a request on NTA channel 10. Now instead of getting on different rides and eating cotton candy, i am now stuck working Christmas days calls. Growing up my mum always made sure she took my brother and i and also my neighbour's kids to Apapa amusement park around Christmas time. We would enter lots of rides (at least the ones that that our heights and ages could allow us to enter), sometimes because some rides were restricted to us we would enter the ones we could twice. I just remembered, i still need to drive those bumper cars! When i finally could ride them, the management of the park decided to forget their managerial skills and let the park shut down......*angryface*. If i catch them ehen!
I miss cotton candy. After almost 8 or 10 years i saw cotton candy in South Africa and you should see the way i said "cotton candy!", my face lit up and i am sure that my friend must have wondered what was wrong with me. I felt like i was eating the clouds,hmmmm heavenly. Oh no! i now want another cotton candy...*wailing*
|Oh sweet cotton candy, How i wish i had bought 20 of you then?|
I also remember waking up very early on Christmas morning and not going out of my room until my mum came to wake us up. We were afraid we would run into Santa Claus and he would not give us our presents so we waited till the coast was clear. We didn't have a tree then but my mum would put our presents near the wall near the T.V and you should see the speed with which we would run to our presents and open them. Great times......
How can i forget visiting the Grotto's and getting gifts that i thought rocked then but now....*lipssealed*....lol. It is all good though, i am grateful that i have these memories. I may not have had the memory of traveling out of Nigeria to see a white Santa Claus or see snow(but now that i think about it i doubt i want to go anywhere when there is snow, South African winter that had no snow was horrible imagine a winter with snow, no thank you i would pass) but i am glad that i still had fun.
So guys what childhood memories do you have of December/Christmas? Remember those times and feel like kids again.
Thanks for stopping by. I wish you a December filled with loads of miracles and blessings. Have a lovely new week and month.
