    My favorite Christmas memory is probably when I was younger and my dad was still here. Him and my mom would always be up extra early sitting at the table with coffee and breakfast already made for us a 6am.

  56. I have a huge family. And when I was a little girl, all of my family would come to my mom’s house for Christmas, regardless of what state they lived in or whether they couldn’t afford Christmas presents for everyone or not. It wasn’t about gifts or money like so many look at it now. It was about family and traditions, and everyone just getting to spend time together as a whole. Now, most of my family is so spread out across America, and they simply don’t care to be around everyone. They all have their own traditions with friends or their immediate family. I cherish the memories from when I was younger.

  57. Leaving town to go visit my cousins.

  58. Just spending time with my extended family and grandparents.

    I remember my son’s 1st Christmas. We got him a musical toy that lighted up. He was almost 3 months old. The toy had hanging shapes that he could grab onto and pull and light-up piano keys that he could play while standing up when he was older. We put him on the floor and sit this toy over him so he could reach the pulls. He laid there and played with it for about 45 minutes pulling on the shapes and watching the lights come on and listening to the music it played. He had a lot of fun with that toy. Now he’s 13 and learning to play the guitar.

  71. Kylee Pruitt says:

    I think my children’s first Christmases would be the top of my list. Second is last year. My parents surprised me with an all white 4 ft Christmas tree with pink and purple decorations. They had it in a bag and wrapped. They surprised me with this because I had said I wanted it for my two daughters I have lost. I wanted a tree in honor of them but my other two kids didn’t want a pink and purple tree they wanted a colorful tree. So I obliged and we did our colorful tree. But my parents got this one just for me :)

My favorite Christmas memory was waking up early on Xmas morning and finding that “Santa” had left a hand-written note to say thank you for the cookies we left him and the carrots we left the reindeer.

If I ever have kids I’m going to start the same silly gift tradition and wake them up with laughter on Christmas morning.

  169. Michelle S says:

    My favorite Christmas memory is the year my fiancee (now husband) drove 4 hours in a snowstorm to be with my Mom. I was so sick that I rested my head on a pillow the whole way. We surprised my Mom with a dozen roses – she cried because she said that was the first dozen roses she had ever been given. I was sick, it was a snowstorm but we still had a great holiday.

  170. My favorite Christmas memory is getting up one Christmas and seeing a huge guitar box under the tree with my name on it. I was so excited. I had been wanting a guitar for ages. I opened it up and my parents had stuck a little plastic toy ukelele in the box and hid the real guitar behind the couch. I’m so glad they didn’t have a camera and weren’t the kind of parents that had to have pics on Christmas morning.

  171. I love any time that we get together as family. Once we had my whole family over to our house, uncles, aunts, cousins and all. It was so much fun.

  172. My favorite memory is when I was five: all I wanted for Christmas was a specific doll and I got her! And a stroller! And I got to wear my VELVET RED DRESS to Grandma’s.

    My dad went with us to the mountains where we were at a pretty high elevation and there was snow on the ground. The reason this is inspiring is he has infazema. He was up there just so he could see his grand kids play in the snow. I am inspired by the man we all call GRANDPA.

We were driving around looking at decorated houses and when we got to a house that had a huge manger scene (with real people at this time of evening) and the windows were down on the car my little girl pointed at Joseph and very loudly said”Look mommy it’s Teen Wolf) The real characters couldn’t help themselves, they were belly laughing as were we all in the car.

    I have a lot of good memories, but I think that one near the top was the first year we owned our rescued dog (who’d been with us for 10 months at that time). I remember driving around the neighborhood to look at lights with her in the car, and I was in the back seat holding her as she watched the displays. When we’d got back home, and were walking back to the house from the driveway, I told that Santa was coming that night, and she was instantly like a puppy—bouncing around, tail a wagging blur. (She died six years ago, but I’ll always remember her.)

  340. My favorite memories of Christmas is every Christmas, my Mom would get out her sewing machine and sew 2 flannel nightgowns for all of us girls and there were 7 of us. We did not have much money growing up but we never knew that until after we were grown and realized it for ourselves. We always had a great Christmas, thanks to my mother’s love for all of us and her unselfishness of putting herself last all the time and doing without so we could have what all other kids we knew had. I can’t imagine a world without my Mom in it and she is 82 now!

It was adorable and I will never forget her sweet face at that moment :) This year is our youngest daughters 1st Christmas and it’s going to be another exciting one.

    When I was 5 my mom and dad divorced. That year was a bad year for my mom and me and my sister. Well money was really tight and I remember seeing my mom crying and over hearing her and my grandma talking about she didn’t know how she was going to buy us Christmas. Well Christmas eve rolled around and me and my sister where sitting watching tv when there was a knock on the door. I jumped up and went to open up the door. I screamed and started jumping up and down when I seen who was standing there. To my surprise it was Santa Claus and he had a whole big bag full of gifts. Me and my sister freaked out. Well we really thought it was Santa Claus and it was a christmas miracle. Well when I got older I soon found out that my grandma set the whole thing up so me and my sister would have Christmas. So it was a miracle to me because I will always remember that day thanks so my grandma. She had been gone now over 10 years but there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about her.

    I was probably 9, my little brother was 3. He had gotten up in the middle of the night and had opened everything. It wasn’t so funny at the time, my mom was devastated, but now if we talk about it she laughs. It’s the 1 Christmas that’s always stood out to me

    My most vivid Christmas memory is receiving Electronic Baseball for Xmas as a child. “Santa’s” message to try and not strike out looked a lot like my father’s handwriting . . .

  538. Chrissy Kim says:

    My favorite memory is just having Christmas in my childhood home. I used to put the lights on the tree because only I could do it the way I wanted it to look. Every branch had to have lights! My mom and I would decorate the tree together. Then on Christmas morning, my extended family would come over and we’d open gifts and have a big turkey dinner. I miss those days. I miss that childhood home so much.

  549. Eileen Richter says:

    Best memory is my first year as a single mom. I actually went out on a rooftop to our porch and “found” reindeer tracks and “heard” such a clatter. My 3 kids were SO surprised and excited when just a minute later I heard them scurry around and we KNEW Santa had been there. Later they said how we had looked out the window and they had seen Santa passing in the sky just before the fun drama. I will never forget that night! We didnt have a mess of gifts that year, it was so sparse, but the memory of 25 years ago…that is worth more than any material THING ever made or marketed!

  550. I was an only child so the years my cousins would come for Christmas were very special to me.

  561. Cathleen Gilliland says:

    About 4 Christmas ago, my oldest daughter had just finished painting and decorating their new home. So after we finally convinced my 3 Granddaughters they really need to sleep, we did our Christmas Eve marathon of wrapping presents and settled into our Christmas jammies. So it is about 3a.m. and I am stretched across the couch trying to grab a few hours sleep and my gruesome twosome were in side by side recliners watching the fireplace and tree lights and they start whispering “hey, this is just like when we were kids…” ” except we don’t need to peek at the presents” “do you think Mom can hear us”……It felt good to hear them giggle about their remembrance of back in the day coming forward to where we are today!
