Merry Christmas

Christmas morning on Strong Avenue, probably 1924; Mamie, Bigma, Jessie, Tiny, Bama and Sara

Merry Christmas to all of you who have been so supportive of Sara’s memoirs this year. She was Christmas for all of us lucky enough to have been in her world, and this is a good day to honor her and her undying enthusiasm for this most sacred of holidays. May you and your loved ones have as much fun on this day as she always did.

Hello....I'm in possession of a priceless collection of memoirs and memorabilia left by my mother, Sara Evans Criss. She was a native and lifelong (88 years!) devotee of our small town, who covered this peculiar and volatile corner of the world for 30 years as the Memphis Commercial Appeal's Greenwood bureau chief, a job that started out with debutantes and high school football and wound up spang in the midst of one of the twentieth century's most enduring social upheavals. This blog is dedicated to her memory and the legacy she left behind, both for her family and her community.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mary Carol. I have your mother’s angel doll on the top of my tree and one at the bottom. They are there every year!

      And Merry Christmas to you and yours, Nancy. Nothing would make my mother happier than to be part of someone’s Christmas traditions. Best wishes for the New Year.
