My sons first Christmas, he was amazed to see the first snow fall.
Any holiday with my kiddos is my favorite!
My favorite is my first Christmas as a Mom. I’d gone through infertility treatments and then had a complicated pregnancy where my son was only given a 5% chance of living. After such a long hard path to get there it was so amazing to have my baby snuggled up in my arms on the couch, with my dog on one side, and my cat on the other. Looking at my Christmas tree and watching cheesy holiday movies.
My favorite holiday memory is the last time that we were all together before my older relatives started dying off
I love the memory of decorating the tree and baking holiday cookies together
MY favorite holiday memory is decorating the tree with my momma!
My favorite holiday memory is when we took my son to see our extended family for his first Christmas.
My favorite memory is growing up and staying at my grandparent’s house every Christmas Eve. We’d have 25+ family members stuffed into a 4 bedroom home and we couldn’t have been happier.
Baking and decorating holiday sugar cookies with my mom! Such a fun tradition.
spending time with family
My favorite holiday memory is going to the Christmas tree farm every year and looking for the perfect tree while drinking hot cocoa and listening to Christmas music.

My favorite holiday memory was a Christmas spent in NYC, doing all the tourist things like seeing Rockafeller Center and the Rockettes.
My favorite holiday memory was Christmas Eve 1981. My husband proposed and gave me an engagement ring. Still wearing it and still together 39 years later.

One year I gave each relative a rubber animal nose. They put them on and I got a great photo.
Exchanging gifts with my family on Christmas Eve.
One of my favorite memories is my last Christmas with my father. He was a pianist and played for our family for an hour even though he was sick. It was the best gift we could have ever had.
The Christmas where I baked sugar cookies for my little cousin and he had a blast decorating them!
My favorite holiday memory is the last Thanksgiving with my father. It was completely non-traditional, spur of the moment. Just
my husband and I at Dad’s and everything was store bought. My kids and grandchildren were at home missing us to be sure, but
this day was so special I felt teary-eyed during and after. I hadn’t spent that holiday with him since I was in my twenties because
he was in another state. It was a beautiful day.

Last year I enjoyed playing in the snow! Took the entire day off, geared up with my layers of gear (I now have gear, lol!) and crunched around in the snow wearing snowboots with crampons, made snow angels, sipped cocoa, all the things. Magnificent! It was my first snow (in my 30’s from Florida).
My favorite holiday memory was that of the last Chistmas with my grandfather. He had demintia and my grandmother was so over protective understandably. The kids and I made the 20 hour trip home and had my aunt get my grandmother out and we snuck him off to a pizzaria which was his favorite. It is the best memory that years later my kids still talk about every year because they remember how happy he was when we snuck him out and he was funny like he knew we snuck him out and they got back before us and my grandmother gave us all a mess lol.

I love making Christmas goodies with my mom.
I loved the year it actually snowed for Christmas! My cousins and I had a blast sledding down grandma’s hill all afternoon. I’m sure none of us remember the presents that year because the fun surpassed them!
My favorite holiday memory is my father reading the story of the 1st Christmas to us on Christmas day.
I love the memory of after opening presents watching movies like A Christmas Story or Grinch together.
CHRISTMAS EVE PARTY

I really don’t have a specific favorite memory. When I was a kid, we always went to to my aunt and uncle’s house. They had pinball, video games, and tons of toys. We always had a blast!
