Christmas Treats Day 12: Lime Jell-O / Mom's Smith Salad

This is my mom's absolutely favorite Jell-O salad and her mom (my grandma) makes it for every holiday gathering at her house.  I don't remember her bringing it to any other family gathering, so I've decided to include it in the Christmas recipes.

1 large package lime Jell-O
1½ cups boiling water
8 oz cream cheese, softened
¾ cup finely chopped celery
½ cup walnuts
1 can crushed pineapple with juice
1 jar diced maraschino cherries
8 oz Cool Whip

Mix Jell-O, water, and cream cheese well.  Add celery, walnuts, pineapple and juice, and cherries.  Let partially set; stir.  Add in Cool Whip and chill at least 30 minutes before serving.
