A week before, I got a letter
from my old Great Aunt.
It read: “Of course, I’ll understand
completely if you can’t,
But if you find you have some time,
how wonderful if we
Could have a little chat
and share a cup of Christmas tea.”
Neal and I like to celebrate this holiday reading together but a few years ago we invited many of our friends over for a festive evening of merriment and mirth. Neal introduced the story to all and as family gatherings of old, he read, rather theatrically, “A Cup of Christmas Tea” by Tom Hegg.
I have asked Neal (of famed blog NealEnjoy.com) to read for us, “A Cup of Christmas Tea”. A skilled orator and writer of creative fiction of a local writers group, The Incandescent Quill. My request, theatrically read, if he would like. Ha.
Pull a chair, listen to this holiday classic with me. Ah, listen, Christmas past “intact”.
In honor of our little tradition, our good friend and next door neighbor, Vivian blessed Neal and me with a part of her family’s china tea set. What an amazing surprise and gift!
Now go get a cup, find a saucer (do they still make them?), have a slice of homemade fruit cake (store bought is fine too) and welcome Christmas in your heart.
