 James Schwartz was raised Amish and offers two memories from childhood Christmases: 


"Amish Christmas Tree”

remember when blue box

Why can’t we have a Christmas tree?
That is not for Our People, Mom explains.

I beg until she cuts a tree from cardboard,
Spray painting it gold.

We cut up Hallmark cards,
Decorating its boughs. Together.


“Coffee Soup” 

Pour mug of freshly brewed coffee into bowl.
Add creamer / sugar to taste.
Saltines optional.
Side of cheddar optional.
Served since my childhood.

Amish kitchen optional.
