The cat I had when I was growing up would love sleeping under the tree, we had a super fuzzy tree skirt for her to lay on and she often looked so very happy sleeping on it. She always seemed disappointed when it went away again but got excited again when it came back the next year.

Mayor / Maire

I don't have any particular memory, it's more the feeling that comes every year around the season, people are so happy and it's contagious.

My favorite Christmas memory is set up Christmas tree and lights.

My favourite holiday memory is building a tobogganing hill with my cousins and family and riding down to the bottom over and over again!

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

My favorite holiday memory is spending a whole day skiing with childhood friends that came home for the holidays a few years ago. It was special to me because they don't come home often.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

My favourite moment during the holiday is being with myself, working out, and reflecting on the past year while preparing for the next one.

Getting my Kuwahara BMX bike as a child under the Christmas tree.....something I will never forget.  Rode it in the basement as there was snow outside.

This is a great promo with the free call and 1GB date.  

Happy Holidays!

Favorite memories at Christmas included family being all together, hanging stockings, wonderful cooking smells!

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

Holed up as a kid with my hilarious favourite cousin, listening to the newly-released-at-the-time Grease movie album on repeat.  Happy times. 

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

I always loved setting up the Christmas tree. It's always such a family affair and really brings the spirit home.

Model Citizen / Citoyen Modèle

A snowy Christmas with all the family over and the wonderful feeling of exhaustion and relief once the turkey dinner is on the table and everyone is eating.  

Mayor / Maire

Winning both of these contests would be great

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

The delicious smell and amazing taste of warm cinnamon buns on Christmas morning.

Helping feed the homeless and less fortunate

I was working in Germany from 1980 to 1984, and in 1981, we had our first and only "white Xmas" during that time.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Favourite Christmas memory is from when I was a child, around 11-12 at Mum and Dad's house and all (and I mean ALL) the family, Great grandparents, grandparents, Aunts on both sides, Uncles on both sides, their kids and their kids.  The house was full.  The women would all putter about in the kitchen and dining area, setting up the food festivities for lunch.  There was the adult table and the children's table.  Must've been at least 30+.  🇦🇺

Waking up when I was about 6 yrs. old to a model train set up under the Christmas tree for me on my uncle's farm.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Favorite memory = win both contests from Public Mobile!

Town Hero / Héro de la Ville

As a kid, waking up ridiculously early to open gifts, waking my parents was a whole other task. But eventually, we were all awake, all gifts open, playing with new things and sipping hot chocolate all before the sun even started to rise ❤

Mayor / Maire

The year we got a fire place and all the family kids came over to send letters to Santa. Apparently, this was the most effective way to get your Holiday wishes to the Big Guy!

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Great Citizen / Super Citoyen

Trying to sleep at night as a kid but too giddy with excitement. Hearing my parents shuffle around the house getting everything ready, creating the magic ❤ Oh to be a kid again!!
