Many years ago, when we first moved to Phoenix.

Many years ago (52) when we first moved to Phoenix, we had a small apartment at 40th St & Camelback Rd. A Bashas’ store was right across the street .It was Christmas Eve and I needed something from the store, so I finished decorating our small artificial tree and went across the street for my item. The store was about to close for the holiday and they had one Christmas tree left that didn’t sell. It was a very nice tree but I didn’t need it. Well, that little tree called out to me to PLEASE take it home with me. It just wasn’t right for it to be all alone on Christmas. The store manager agreed so I did. Our other tree shared its ornaments so that year we had 2 beautiful trees. That was Christmas 1971. – Rita H.
