The sharpest memory of our old-fashioned Christmas eve is my mother's hand making sure I was settled in bed.
Our small ears never had such a workout as on the Fourth of July, hearing not only our own bursting crackers but also those of our friends, and often the boom of homemade cannon shot off by daring boys of 16 years, ready to lose a hand if it blew up.
