Christmas

Most of you guys know I love memories and look forward to one creating special memories for Michael and I and any kids we have. I was blessed to have a family who gave me such memories.

Thanks Mom and Dad for everything you did to make sure we had a happy childhood. That was one of the best gifts you have ever given us!!!

When I think of Christmas, I think of Jesus, the manger, church, candlelight services, cocoa, looking at Christmas lights, fireplaces, good movies, the gift of giving to others, shopping, wrapping paper, smiles, Santa, cookies, stockings,!!


What things come to your mind when you think of Christmas???

Christmas really is the time of year that evokes childhood memories, isn't it? I searched e-bay last month for a 1950's Christmas elf that I remember our neighbors having under their tree. The neighbors were like grandparents to us and we always went over for a visit on Christmas eve. I found the elf, but he's a bit older than the one I remember (but then again, so am I).
I have fun memories of the Christmas tree, and waiting for Santa, and trying to peek down the stairs to see what he brought, Christmas cookies, the childrens mass at our church and so much more. I hope that my own children will have wonderful memories of Christmas :)

My sentiments exactly. Christmas is the best time to solidify our family unity. I try to do this throughout the year but during the holidays it takes on a whole different meaning.

I am sure you will give awesome memories to your daughter when she gets here.

I think of family and food. My children. My Lord. The blessings in my life. Good friends. My daugher..where is she? Not necessarily in that order.

I'm happy that you had such a lovely childhood. I don't have any good memories of the holidays so here's to starting my own family traditions with my son. I would love for him to be able to look back fondly on his childhood!

What awesome memories you have of Christmas. It's sad to think that there are so many children (and adults) out there that do not have good memories of this wonderful holiday!

I remember hanging out with family, playing games and eating lots of goodies! I also remember lighting the advent candle and doing special reading every day about the "real" reason we have the holiday.
