Day 1 – 7 Days to a Sweeter Christmas – Melanie Redd

Melanie Redd : 

Day 1 

I grew up in one of those traditional southern towns where we made a BIG DEAL out of Jesus at Christmastime.

Even at my secular elementary school, we read the Christmas story from the Bible and memorized large portions of Luke 2 to recite at the annual Christmas pageant.

On every corner, it was common to see manger scenes and all sorts of religious Christmas symbols. Making a big deal out of Baby Jesus was not politically incorrect.

However, that was a long time ago – many years before people got so “goofy” about all things related to Baby Jesus.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
