When I was a kid, every Christmas I'd buy a box of chocolate covered cherries for my mother. They were cheap for my childhood "budget" and she made such a big deal out of them, year after year. I was so proud to give my mother such an important gift! Even after I was all grown up and had a family of my own, I'd make sure there was a box of chocolate covered cherries for my mom. Mama died in 2001, and the chocolate covered cherries still appear during Christmas... it wouldn't be Christmas without them. I'm enjoying a chocolate covered cherry right now with a cup of coffee. Thinking of you, Mama. Do you have a special memory or Christmas tradition?
