Christmas memories

Here’s the next in a series of oral memories from friends, family and neighbours. This time the theme is Christmas. I asked everyone for a vivid memory from any Christmas they remembered.

My mum talked about Christmas as a child in war-time Belgrade, where she was born and lived till she was nine. My dad talked about having a spot of bother in Bethlehem one year. There’s my daughter, Josie, pin-pointing what is important for her about Christmas..and many more from neighbours in Finsbury Park, north London, with memories of growing up in Cork, ¬†Edgbaston, Staffordshire and further afield too.

Here are the memories, in Soundcloud, for you to dip in to and enjoy, and Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year, to one and all.
