  14. When my son was just over a year old we had a Christmas where we managed to get most of my family and my husband's family together. There were over 30 people including about six babies and toddlers. It was chaotic and fun. Now everyone has moved all over the place and it's hard to get a bunch like that together.

  16. The year my daughter got married (on Christmas Eve!) we had everyone in both families plus all the remaining wedding guests over to our house for Christmas breakfast with the newlywed couple - who of course stayed in town for Christmas morning so they didn't miss out on any gifts that might be coming there way! Over 50 people in my house for breakfast - but what fun!! A great way to celebrate the season!

  19. Going to my grandparents house and having my grandma play piano, my grandpa play the fiddle and my uncle on the guitar. We have a family full of beautiful singers and musicians. We would sing all kinds of Christmas carols and hymns. These truly were Hallmark moments that I treasure to this day. My grandparents have both been gone several years, but those memories are like yesterday. xoxo

  20. My Aunt bringing down our presents early on Christmas Eve with no names on them. We had to wait until nighttime to find out which one was ours. It kept us quite busy while food was being made.

  21. When our children were little, my husband and I would take them to a tree farm for our Christmas tree. Of course, it took forever for them to choose a tree and my poor husband always got muddy and wet, cutting down the tree, but it was always fun for them.

  26. When I was 12 I got a new bike. My dad walked two miles to the hardware store in the middle of the night Christmas Eve and rode it home to put in front of the tree Christmas morning. That was the first year that we ever had anything big on Christmas Day. My parents would buy a few things to open on Christmas and then go shop the after Christmas sales for more things. It was sort of like having two Christmas'

  42. Memories of Christmas for me is a long standing tradition of going to the same Christmas tree farm each year. This tree farm has been owned by the same family and is now being run by its 4th generation. I've gone to this tree farm since I was a small child and then after growing up, took my own children there every single year, and now we're taking one of my grandchildren there as well along with my son/her Dad, and my future DIL. I've gone to this same tree farm each Christmas for over 50 years now, aside from a few years which health problems (being in the hospital or just out) prevented us from going.

  55. I have few favorite - each one of the kids first site of a Christmas tree and presents! Once when I was a young teen my family had no money for a tree much less presents. My friends came over with a real tree and decorations and we ate cookies someone Grandma had made! It was their spirit of Christmas that made me realize it wasn't about what you got but what to gave! They gave me love that day! Still brings tears!
