Most families look forward to spending Christmas together. However, guest commentator Mike Clark says not everyone grows up with Norman Rockwell experiences. In this segment of Real People, Real Stories, he recalls how the Christmas of 1955 was void of family holiday traditions. But on a deserted street, he discovered that little things can become much in the right hands.  Clark moved to North Carolina in 1986. He's a freelance writer and lives in Greensboro with his wife.

Mike Clark describes how his father turned a ghost-town into a great Christmas.
