This is my father's favorite Christmas story. Christmas at his house was a slim affair. Dad's story reminds me that Christmas presents can be something other than prettily wrapped gifts. It can be the generosity and kindness of a postman who went wall beyond any expected effort to make sure that a family was able to celebrate Christmas.
This photo shows the farm back in 1957. You can see the road going towards the house. By Christmas of that year, that road was impassible and the closest passable road was over a mile away.
So please read - A Special Delivery - if you are of a certain age and lived far off the beaten path, you may have a similar story!
Have a Merry Christmas!
