Merry Christmas everyone! Whether you celebrate this holiday or not, I’m wishing you much joy and love. Capture the Season explores the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How of the holidays through no-fuss memory keeping prompts.
This week’s prompt helps you dig deeper into place-based memories and how simple images, scents or sounds can make the past come to life in your mind.
Assignment #5: The Where
Though its been many years since we celebrated Christmas at my grandparents’ house, some of my most vivid memories are of my small family gathered in their living room. As a child, I would look out their big picture window at the snow gently falling on the rose bushes and bird feeders. I can still picture the holiday decorations in that room as I now place their keepsake ornaments on my own tree. Think about the holiday places and spaces that hold deep meaning to you. Use all five senses in your writing to bring that location to life.
