After Janice and I got married, we spent all our Christmas Holidays with Janice’s parents at their Winchester home until Margaret was born in 1969. Decorating the tree a few days before Christmas, opening gifts on Christmas day, and eating a big meal during the middle of Christmas afternoon - these routines became our own family tradition later. Everything else was very relaxed and did not follow any particular pattern. We played games or toys with Jimmy and\or Doug, and one year Dorothy Njeuma was with us. Sometimes, we would go out to have dinner at some restaurants, at least on New Year's Eve. We even went to a dance party once, I remember. Those few years gave both Janice and I a chance to know more about each other. We appreciated them!
