My earliest childhood memories are connected with my mother – with the most precious person. I remember how we walked in the park, ate ice cream, candy. Smiles, fairy tales, a good mood, lots of toys, sweets – that’s what childhood means to me. I remember how we waited for the whole family New Year, birthdays. Since childhood, people have been accompanied by holidays, which make their life more colorful, solemn, make diversity and joy in it. Of course, my childhood is associated with gifts. I still keep some of them, because they are dear to me as a memory of unforgettable happy and happy days. Sometimes, when I have a melancholy mood, I, as often happened in my childhood, begin to lay out my favorite toys and talk to them. Maybe some will find this strange, but the memories of something good,
I remember how we kids went dressed up, happy in the first class. We considered ourselves already great, because they became schoolchildren. All our relatives saw us off and wished a good journey. I remember the first lesson and the words of the teacher: “Hello, children!” And from the lesson to the lesson, from class to class, in school everyday life we ??discovered and learned the higher values ??of life. Now, seeing little first-graders, we remember our first days at school and compare ourselves with them. We, too, were just as nimble, restless, sometimes confused, sometimes inordinately curious. We wanted more to play, relax, than to prepare for lessons. And now we, high school students, like to have fun, to play pranks. With what childish delight we are waiting for the first snow, the long-awaited winter, when you can play snowballs, ride a sled. Snow pleases both children and adults. On such days Pushkin’s words are recalled: “Frost and the sun: a wonderful day!” We, like children, believe in miracles, we believe that Santa Claus will come to us. We want to receive many gifts not only for the New Year. Although with age we begin to understand that miracles can be done with our own hands. And gifts are nice not only to receive, but also to give. The gift is an expression of our most good feelings. And we feel great joy if a person gives our gift pleasure.
