A Clementines and Pistachios Christmas

My parents grew up in the Depression. Creature comforts were scare and probably never more so than during the Christmas season.

And that’s why it was a big deal in the 1930s when my Mom and Dad would get a box of “Clementines” tangerines and a bag of pistachios.

The years have gone by Christmastime is here again. My mom passed more than a decade ago and my Dad passed in April.

This is the first Christmas I will have without either parents. (Don’t be sad I’m old).

But it won’t be the last Christmas with Clementines and Pistachios!
