What do YOU remember about your childhood Christmases (or whatever holiday you celebrate)?


Dear Santa - I want it ALL! What a hoot. And I actually remember those patterned sleeping bags and wanting one so bad. Did I get one? I don't even recall.
I love Christmas Shopping with my Paw friends Woof!

My mommy remembers going to the big city on the bus with her sister. They loved to look in the windows of the big department stores and watch the animated animals dance and twirl. And all the decorations of the big city, and bells ringing!

Sledding! My sister and I would get new sleds for Christmas and we'd bundle up and go out and sled until our lips were blue!

Merry Christmas! I love this post! I will be scrutinizing these ads for my own holiday inspirations this year. Thanks for sharing them. I remember being so excited on Christmas Eve as a kid. We each got to open a small present that night to help us cope with the excitement! I remember waking my parents up well before the crack of dawn and taking naps with my new toys later in the day. I heart Christmas!

I has a feelin' I prolly shouldn'r invite my neighbor's to my Christmas shindig...what does you think?

My mum's mom still has one of them green coffee thingamabobs...let's just keep dat between us though.

Oh what a blast from the past, lol! That first picture looks like it's taken straight from the Partridge Family!

I had one of those candle making kits! I still like making candles.

Thanks, that was fun!
So nice to reminisce about the good old days. Mom says her fondest memories are of Christmas night when all the families got together at her uncle's house. All the rush rush of shopping was long over, the gifts were all given and unwrapped. And now it was just family time with all the old folks and the kids, all having a great time. Fond memories for sure.
