Gloria Swift, a US Army veteran, former Foster City police officer, and educator who immigrated to the United States in 1973 and now enjoys traveling and working on her parents’ farm and bed and breakfast in her native Belize, has completed her new book “It’s the Memory of an Old-Fashioned Christmas”: a nostalgic work celebrating the simple joys of the holiday.

“It’s the Memory of an Old-Fashioned Christmas” had been in the works for six years. Every year, around Christmastime, Ms. Swift reminisced about the good days when families, neighbors, and villagers had one thing in common - celebrate Christmas by going to a Christmas play, attend Mass, then eat foods and desserts that took two days to prepare. Christmas was about loving each other. Christmas was about families getting together to talk and laugh, maybe even shed a few tears about family members who were missing. Today, Christmas is so commercialized we forget the real reason for the season. Take a cruise down memory lane with “It’s the Memory of an Old-Fashioned Christmas.”

Published by Page Publishing, Gloria Swift’s book is a warmhearted addition to any holiday library.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “It’s the Memory of an Old-Fashioned Christmas” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
