Seanmhair reached below the branches of the tree and pulled out a small package. The gift was wrapped in red paper with Santa Claus pictures embossed in white on the paper. She carefully placed the gift in Aileana’s hand. Aileana removed the ribbon and paper from the package. The gift was an old worn leather-bound book of Selkie tales. She subsequently told us the story of the old book of Selkie legends. She first received the book from her new husband Mackenzie on their wedding night. Her Mackenzie used the book to help her understand his story of his Selkie clan. He thought the book, would be a way to help her with the knowledge he planned on sharing with his new bride.
Aileana had tears in her eyes that threatened to leak out; at hearing such a beautiful story of her grandfather’s love. Her Seanmhair told her wanted to pass the book down to her, now that she had love of her own Selkie.
“I brought a gift fur ye Skye,” Kendrick said as he tried to divert the tear fest between Skye and Aileana.
“Och! Ye shouldn’t have balach,” Skye

    This is the one night each year I will NEVER tell my mom I am too old for her to read me a story; that night is Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve is my absolute favorite night of the year! Not only do we attend Christmas Eve mass, we also celebrate with a longstanding family tradition of paella (spanish seafood and rice dish) for dinner and my mother reads “The Night Before Christmas”. My sister and I get into our PJ’s, leave the cookies for “Santa”, sprinkle the reindeer food on the lawn and jump into my bed to get snuggled under the cozy blankets. Even though we now know Santa is a nonexistent mythical character, I believe the butterflies in our tummies as she clicks on the flashlight and opens the book may never go away.…

    December 26, the day after Christmas. Either my grandma or I would call and sing happy birthday to each other at the top of our lungs. We would even sometimes spend the whole day together, whether it was shopping, eating ice cream, or just sitting and talking about whatever came to mind. Now those days are gone. When I was younger, I wouldn’t want to celebrate my birthday because I thought she would be mad with me or something, but now I know she would just want me to be happy and live life to the fullest in memory of her.…
