"no matter how busy my parents were, they always made it a point to celebrate special occasions together." —Lucie Arnaz"Dear Ed, Our favorite Christmas is probably no different from those of millions of other people -- it was our first Christmas together as a family. That was in 1953. Little Lucie was two and little Desi was almost a year old.
We celebrated it quietly in our old home in the San Fernando Valley. The two of us were alone with the children that morning and as we sat around our tree and watched the kids laugh and play with their gifts, we suddenly realized the full meaning of Christmas. To try and describe the experience in mere words is impossible for us, but we both agree that it was the best Christmas either of us had ever spent -- together or apart."- Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz
