Great Contest public mobile! Keep them coming.....
I have always loved Christmas and now I really enjoy the giving part but as a kid its all about the getting.... my parents managed and we knew not to ask for extravagant gifts but as a teenager in 1982 with long rides on the bus to get to school I really wanted a sony walkman and was diligently saving up my babysitting money to eventually buy one. Coming in at well over $100 it was going to take quite awhile. I knew better than to even ask for it.
That Christmas as we cleaned up all the used wrapping paper after opening our gifts i found one gift that had gone unnoticed with my name on the tag from Santa. I unwrapped it expecting a stocking stuffer type gift only to reveal a brand new walkman! It was so unexpected I started to cry! It didnt matter that it was a "valkman" or some other generic brand like curtis the fact my parents had gone to such lengths to get me an "extravagant" gift that I wanted soooo bad is a holiday memory I will remember forever.....love you Mom and Dad!
Happy Holidays everybody!
My most favorite X'mas memory:
In 2012, a 4 days short trip to Regensburg, Nuremberg, visiting X'mas markets. Holding warm mulled wine in a mug , strolled in the market, browsed stalls to watch those lighting and immersed in the holiday mood. When returning to Toronto, upgraded to first class seat. 😀
My best Christmas memories come from the time I was a kid same age as Ralphie in "The Christmas Story".. practically all same _story_ including licking the iron on frost.. that very time when I started suspecting that Santa's steps sound like daddy's.. but.. no, no! Santa does exist ))
My favourite holiday memory is from when I had just finished my undergrad degree. A friend of mine lived in and operated a campground and offered cross-country skiing in the winter. That particular Christmas, we had finished grooming the trails and closing up for the day and were sitting in his cabin with tea and home-made elderberry cordial watching looking out at the snow in the evening's blue light - it was so tranquil and beautiful! His Christmas tree had the old-fashioned lights that used real candles and the whole thing was just perfect!
My best holiday memory when my first of daughters were born. I put a few decorations out in the front yard. And 40 years later it has turned into a full blown yard display with lights, figurines, animals and toys as well as sound that tells christmas stories.People come from miles away to check it out. The children that grew up in our area and used to come by to see it are now bringing their own children by to show and tell them their story of growing up here. We now have great grand children, so I guess won't be stopping anytime soon.. So, the memory continues year after year.
HO HO HO!
In 2007, I travel with my cousins and his friends during the holidays to Toronto.
Long ride, snowy and cold period. We laughed and made jokes during the trip. Played board games in the hotel. Very different than my usual Christmas holiday where I tend to stay home and have a simple family time.
