Scottish Thistles

Tuesday, December 18, 2012


I grew up on a farm and attended a two-room rural school for grades 1-8.  We always had a Christmas program at the school which included little plays, lots of music and fun things.  The teachers (a married couple) always put together Christmas treat sacks for each student.  Included in those sacks (brown paper bags) were an apple, an orange, peanuts, a popcorn ball, a variety of candies which included these orange slices.  They will always be one of my favorite candies and now, as I enjoy them I'm reminded of those Christmas programs at Mildred School. I'm also reminded of the incredibly wonderful heritage I have as a "farmkid"!  Grateful for all kinds of CHRISTMAS "SWEETS"!
