My favorite childhood holiday memory was Christmas when I was 10. My adorable younger sister was born on Christmas Day . When I saw her for the first time she showed me a smile, which was the first smile she had ever given anyone. I will treasure that moment always. She is now 14, and every Christmas is more and more special as she grows up. She’s one of my best friends and always will be.
Caitlin Fields says
I want to enter! One of my favorite holiday memories as a kid was baking cookies and decorating them with my mom and sisters. We made everything from scratch- the icings, the shortbread. We would cut them out with different Christmas cutters and I would put the sprinkles on. I’m pregnant with my first child and I can’t wait to do the same him/her!
My favorite childhood holiday memory was spending christmas eve leaving turkey dinners anonymously on the doorsteps of low-income families. We would have to doorbell ditch and run quickly (but carefully to not slip on the ice!), and I loved the feeling of helping someone in need during the holidays.
Emily smith says
Going to a tree farm and cutting Down our tree the Saturday after thanksgiving!

Excited for this great giveaway just in time for Christmas!
Courtney Kokus says
My family was all about the traditions, especially during the holidays. If I had to pick my favorite tradition it would have to be opening the gifts my brother and I got each other on Christmas Eve. It made the gifts we got each other very special and made us even more excited for the morning. My brother and I still uphold this tradition! We don’t always live near each other so we use Skype. 🙂 I can’t wait till my kiddos are old enough to adopt this tradition!
my favorite holiday tradition is riding through neighborhoods seeing everyones christmas lights up while haveing hot choclate <3
My favorite memory from m childhood holidays is eating store bought cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning.
Natalie S says
My fave childhood family tradition was getting up on Christmas morning and going to church as a family and feeling all of the excitement all day to get home that evening and open presents!
Traci Anthony says
My fav holiday tradition as a child was having the whole family gather at my grandparents house for a large dinner, exchange gifts with each other, wait for Santa to come by on the fire truck and then head off to Christmas Eve service.
On Passover instead of the children taking the hidden piece of matzo from my father and hiding it, he used to hide it and all the children would look for it. I loved running around with my sister and later on my nieces and nephews looking for the matzo while the adults all sat at the table laughing
I loved standing around the Hannuka menorah, watching everyone light and waiting eagerly for my present while my father sang. I would later run back to look at all the melted colorful candles to see what colors they created
It will always be making holiday sugar cookies around a table. A tradition that will continue now with the little one
I loved being able to see my cousin once a year at Christmas.
I loved getting to see my cousins once a year at Christmas.
Growing up my family would always go out and cut our own Christmas tree down and decorate it with all the homemade ornaments from school and such that we had made as well as ornaments from our Grandma’s childhood. Now I let my boys carry on the tradition in a small way by decorating our tree with the ornaments they have made through out the years as well as a new one they have picked out from the store themselves each holiday.

Making gingerbread houses with my dad!
Lauren Beatty says
My favorite holiday childhood memory happened every Christmas Eve. All 6 kids would sleep in one room and my dad would come in and tell us a story he made up about 6 little bears who get lost on Christmas Eve. After their long adventure through the snowy woods, Santa came to their rescue and brought them home safe and sound. Each bear represented a child in our family. I love that story!
Kourtney Cyrus says
My favorite holiday memory was when I was 5 and my parents had their best friend dress up as Santa and come to our house in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve. My parents woke my sister and I up and proceeded to film us watching him from the second story stair railing. He was walking around our living room eating our cookies and drinking the milk. I literally believed in Santa until I was 11 or twelve. Over the years I would show my friends who said Santa wasn’t real and it always changed their mind 😉 such a fun memory!!!!
Audrey Williams says
Every Christmas morning we would open presents first thing, then my dad would make us all a huge breakfast. We still have Christmas morning breakfast with my family.
Marissa M says
my favorite tradition was searching for our “big” hidden present around the house with my siblings.
My favorite holiday memory from childhood would have to be our annual cookie decorating party. My mom and her best friends had kids all around the same age, so we all grew up together and got together every year to decorate a ton of sugar cookies. We still do it to this day with all of us and our kids!
My favorite childhood memories involve christmas lights and music. The smell of the tree, the fireplace and cinnamon! Such a magical time of year, I can’t wait to celebrate with my little man on the way 🙂
My favorite holiday tradition was our family’s Christmas Eve celebration. We would gather with extended family for a big Christmas Eve dinner, and we would read together stories of Jesus’ birth in the scriptures. We would get to open one present before bed, always pajamas, and something else too! I looked forward to this night all year long!
Oh my baby boy due in 1.5 months would love that!!! And me to of course! Pretty please with a cherry on top 🙂
Sally from Little Hiccups says
As a kid I always looked forward to Christmas lunch with all of my extended family, and our traditional family cricket match that would follow. To this very day my cousins, brother, sister, Aunties and Uncles and parents still play that game of cricket after lunch. No one ever knows who wins as the teams chop and change throughout the game, but we always have fun 🙂
Christmas in Australia is a little different to the rest of the world!

Swimming/diving in the crystal blue waters of Ile Maurice in the Indian Ocean. We went there almost every summer during my childhood/youth.
Mishka Brownley says
(we didn’t celebrate holidays, but Summer in the Southern Hemisphere is in December).
staci martin says
I love Christmas in general and every year is wonderful. I think my first Christmas with my own child and everyone there after is the best. Nothing better then seeing your own children light up Christmas morning and learn the blessing of the true meaning of it all.
My favorite holiday memory was when I was five years old. My parents’ best friend dressed up as Santa on Christmas Eve and came to our house. We were sound asleep and my mom and dad woke my sister and I up to come see Santa. We quietly peeked thru the stair railing above and watched Santa eat our cookies and piddle around our living room. My parents video taped the whole thing!!!
Over the years we would show the tape to our friends who didn’t believe in Santa anymore and after watching it they always changed their mind. Such a fun holiday memory I will never forget.
Marcie Mendoza says
My favorite childhood holiday memory is spending Christmas at church with my family honoring Jesus– the reason for the season 🙂 I love that my parents taught me and my brothers what the true meaning of Christmas is. My husband and I have continued the tradition of going to church for a few hours on Christmas with my 3 year old and will have another little babe next Christmas (2014) to join us. 🙂
Marcie Mendoza says
*new baby will be 10 months come next Christmas..
My favorite childhood memory is going to church Christmas Eve, coming home for an early dinner then lining up and opening all family gifts under the tree. Then as a family we’d watch Christmas Vacation and drink hot chocolate and cookies.
My favorite childhood holiday memory smells like cinnamon rolls. We woke up Christmas Eve Day to the smell of hot cinnamon rolls. My dad started early in the morning making them for us to deliver to family and friends that evening. We drove around town oohing and ahhing over all of the lights and together we’d walk up to the houses with the hot cinnamon rolls. This became a tradition and as I got older I learned how to help and make them myself. I created a special bond in those moments with my Dad that I will never forget.
Lyndsay Gil says
My favorite holiday memory was running down the stairs to see all the presents under the tree and my stocking overflowing with toys!
Cassie Casey says
My favorite childhood memory has always been going a very cool park with my grandmother Where they had the three pigs house and Humpty Dumpty brick wall And the old woman who lived in the shoe house! One of the best days with my grandma!

Planting our live Christmas tree in our yard after Christmas. We always bought a young potted tree from the local nursery so we could save the memories for after the holidays and beyond.
Leslie M. says
My favorite tradition growing up was listening to the same Cd of classical Christmas music as we opened the gifts and also recorded every year on the video camera so that we can go back and re-live whatever Christmas year we wanted! I am continuing this tradition with my kids now (9 year old and newborn)
Tiffany M says
My favorite holiday tradition was celebrating Christmas Eve with my brother and sister. Every year, we would exchange gifts the night before Christmas. By giving it a special time of it’s own, we were really able to appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into each gift.

Going to mass on Christmas Eve, leaving cookies out for Santa, and waking up early in the morning to find my surprises under the tree!
My favorite memory today was one of the worst things back then! The adults would always make sure they had had enough coffee before us kids were allowed to open the gifts! It was so painful waiting, but worth the wait, and looking back it makes me smile, and I’m sure I’ll be that horrible to my own kids someday 🙂
Carrie Upadhyay says

Brittany Kyle says
Opening just one present every hour. Taught us to appreciate exactly what we got. And we played with everything.
Amy Jo says
My favorite childhood holiday memory was getting my first Cabbage patch kid. They were sold out so my mom gave me a handmade cabbage patch kid as a consolation gift on Christmas Eve. Our neighbor worked at Target and was able to get my mom a genuine cabbage patch kid off the truck just in time for Christmas Day. I loved both dolls equally and still have them to this day!
I love the moment when the babies all wake up and realize what day it is. When they realize today is Christmas.
My favorite holiday memories are of visiting my grandparents house in the mountains. The smell of the wood fire, the amazing soft feather beds, getting up before the sun on Christmas morning, the amazing meals and treats all day long. I only hope I can give my children half as magical holiday memories as I have.
Tonya Extine Hopkins says

My favorite tradition was shaking the presents with my brother and trying to figure out what it was 🙂
Christy Cook says
My favorite tradition was making graham cracker “gingerbread houses” with my 5 siblings and covering them with as much candy as could possibly fit. We displayed them on the mantle until Christmas Eve and then dug in, despite the staleness. I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to carry on this tradition!
John Garcia says
Walking down the street to midnight service with my family.
sue soto says
Best tradition is we all still gather as least one night as a family. We have made or bought gifts for people who have done a god deed for someone without knowing it.
apolonia D says
My grandma would make identical dresses for myself and all my girl cousins. They were always beautiful and we all loved to wear them.

Opening our one gift after midnight Church service. Also eating all that food on Thanksgiving.
Danny T says
My favorite childhood holiday memory is putting up our tree and decorating it along with decorating the outside of our home. Attending midnight mass on Christmas Eve was also a family tradition and we got to open up one gift. We would attend mass again on Christmas Day than go home and start unwrapping our gifts and enjoying home cooked food. I plan on continuing that tradition with my family. Happy Holidays!

Jess Murszewski says
My favorite childhood tradition is actually sticking up the little window clings on my bedroom window. It seemed so important when I was 5 or 6 to get them all stuck up there. I remember one year I was sick and my grandmother tried to keep me bedridden, but I was still so determined to get my frosty the snowman on the window.
Inza Marie says
I love being in the kitchen and cooking for my family. I’ve been doing that since I was tall enough to reach the stove 🙂
My favourite Christmas memory is my whole family gathering for a beautiful feast that my dad made. I cherish all memories with my dad (he passed away), but especially Christmas because he would light up seeing his whole family together.
My favorite memory is when my dad created a scavenger hunt for my cousins and I to take part of. Whoever figured it the clue first won that prize and then we had to all regroup to read the next clue before moving on. In the end it all lead to our stockings magically hung in the living. Then my dad came out as Santa and we opened our presents. It’s a day we have been meaning to re-do for the last 20 years! I hope this year is the year we get to re-do it all. And I will push and shove my own young children to get to those clues first!
My favorite childhood holiday memory would definitely be a family get together every year on Christmas day. I would get to see all my cousins, uncles, aunties, grandma etc. We would all have dinner & share a ton of presents 🙂
My favourite memory is when the first snow came. And you tryed to catch the snowflakes with you tongue.
And make snow angels
chen y says
What I like about Holydays is the few moments before the guests had arrived. When the house was clean, the air smell good from the food that was made and the sound of expectation…
I love tradition and starting new ones with my family. Each year a few weeks before Santa comes I have my daughter,she is 2 years old, last year was our first time doing this.I place a medium size hamper in her play room and allowed her to pick out any of her toys n books n etc that she would like to give to the “babies” for Christmas. Then we load it up n drive to salvation Army and donate all the things shes picked out. I take a picture of her standing behind the basket full of all the goodies she chose on her VERY OWN, so we can have one each year for memories. And teaching purposes.I was so very proud of her last year…I had no idea how this was going to go over with a 1 year old. But the days leading up to it my husband n I started telling her she gets to pick out her old toys n give them to babies who need them and Santa will see this and bring you New toys for sharing and being such a good girl!! She was actually very excited about the entire process and looking forward to doing the same this year!!!Merry Christmas yall!! May God bless u n your loved ones this holiday season. Remember the joy of the season is bringing joy to others!!
Jemima McPherson says

My favorite holiday childhood memory is eating delicious donuts for Hanukah with my family and opening all my gifts every night
Diana Cote says
My favorite Childhood tradition was during Christmas, we would do what is called a pesebre which is like a mini village that tells the story of Jesus’s birth. Basically you start with his parents and end with the three kings coming to visit, this takes days and children visit everyday, eat cookies and milk, other holiday deserts and they sing and the story gets told day by day. it was super fun and i was always excited to go everyday. 😀
There are so many wonderful memories associated with Christmas! One of my favorites growing up was gradually decorating the Christmas tree every week of Advent. On Christmas Eve, we’d put up the star and after midnight Mass open one gift and leave cookies for Santa.
Andrea Genovese says
It’s a tie between two of my favoirte Christmas tradition. My mom, dad, sister and I would always go driving through our town looking at all the Christmas lights. We always knew were the best houses where and made sure we went by them, some even had music playing with them. Going back 20 some years ago that was pretty impressive. The second one is my family would always go to our Christmas Eve service at our church, come home and have a nice Christmas dinner, and then open our gifts from our mom and dad. Christmas day was for Santa’s gifts. Both traditions I am carrying on with my children today.
diana mathews says
My favorite tradition would be when the whole family gets together for dinner.
My favorite Christmas memory was going over to my Grandmas house to bake Christmas cookies. She had matching aprons for her and the children and we wore them with delight. She would also play the best Christmas music as we baked and decorated all the cookies. Such great times!

Kenzie Mitchell says

Dulce Flores says
My favorite Christmas tradition is setting up our 20 feet tree, that my dad builds every year since I was 4. A lot of time and team work go into this but it by far is the best tradition we have. I always feel like I am still my fathers baby when we start setting up the 20 foot tree made up of lights and medal poles.
My favorite Holiday tradition is going out to the mountains and getting a tree! This is something I am going to keep going with my little one!
Cassandra Eastman says

Growing up my absolute favorite Christmas tradition was a float with Santa & his Elves that would come to every house in town bringing bags of fruit & old fashioned candy. It was Christmas Eve and made it so magical and special. I wouldn’t trade growing up in a small town for anything!
My favorite holiday tradition is before opening Christmas presents we all go around hug and say Merry Christmas to each other.

My favorite childhood Christmas tradition, was making Christmas ornaments to give as gifts to my grandparents, parents, cousins, aunts & uncles. Each year my mom would pull out her glorious craft box that was FILLED with sequins, buttons, GLITTER, and she would let us go wild! We could create anything we wanted. Each year when I visit my family members homes I still look at all the ornaments I have created over the years. I want to continue this with my child through the years. Such a fun memory.

My favorite holiday memory is baki g Christmas cookies with my family every year when I was a kid. Having everyone there laughing and spending time together is a memory I will cherish forever………
My favorite Memory was to stay in hospital with my little daughter on christmas eve. My family and I – we all were so sad about. But there was something special. A wonderful flair. All children got very very nice and big presents, every one was singing “silent night” and so my daughter and I forgot for a short time where we are…. and I was happy to be there with her and so thankful about
Every year my parents would hide the big gift behind the curtain. And each year we’d pretend to hunt for it, knowing exactly where an obvious mountain bike or CD player were hiding.
My favorite memory/tradition was making cookies and leaving carrots out for Santa and his reindeer. We would wake up and the cookies would be eaten and the carrots would be chewed on. There usually was a note. My parents went to extremes to make sure that Santa spark was still alive in us.
I loved traveling with my parents to see our extended family on Christmas and all of the speeding tickets my dad got:)

I love being surrounded by family on the holidays. Nothing like it!
Victoria Garcia says
My ultimate most favorite childhood holiday memory was baking with my aunt every year as a tradition at her house. We would bake everything from peanut brittle to Christmas cookies. After we were done all night baking we would pack little goodie bags and give them away to family and friends. Everyone would look forward to eating them. They could wait to get their hands on all our baking goods! I personally would eat the whole night while cooking as well that I would be so stuffed I couldn’t even stand. That’s how good all the goodies were! Loved those memories!! Now I have my newborn to carry on those traditions as well!
My favorite holiday tradition when I was a kid was going to a tree farm and picking out a tree with my dad, then bringing it home and decorating it with my mom (while listening to Boney M Christmas!).
Vanessa Hodges says
My favorite childhood holiday memory is gathering with the extended family on Christmas Eve. We were so excited because we were able to open one present on that night and then rush home before Santa came. I will always remember looking in the sky to see if I could see Santa and his reindeers in the sky! Oh to be a child again!
Every year growing up my big extended family would get together for Christmas and have a feast for Christmas dinner. Christmas was something I looked forward to every year because of the party aspect of course but on top of that my parents were very creative about hiding our presents, us kids would usually find the sweet spot days before the family christmas party. We would use playing hide and seek as a coverup for us four children to look where they hide the presents. One year was especially sad for us because we never found my parents secret hiding place and it was already time for our family Christmas party so we went to the party thinking we were getting coal. UNTIL….. we came home and our fireplace was full of toys and presents. I went on for days believing it could have been the real Santa that dropped off the presents. Till this day my parents still haven’t admitted to us where they would hide our presents, I am now 34, that’s my favorite memory I still share with my siblings.
Lauren mueller says
My fave holiday tradition is driving
To my grandmas house by the beach on Christmas Eve, we would all go to a movie, come
Home have a big roast dinner, go to the candlelight church service, and all the littles would go upstairs and swear we heard sleigh bells, while the adults would stay downstairs and wrap presents :)! Now I am one of the adults and get to do that with my kids! Love it!!
Maria Leino says
My favorite memory comes from my church! My sister and I were raised by my single father and he couldn’t always afford to do Christams for us. One Christmas in particular, he was really struggling, and our church patrons came together and have my sister and I an amazing amount of presents! It’s such a heartwarming memory and reminder of the Christmas spirit, and the need to focus on others and togetherness this time of year. Hope my children get to help other kids when they get older!
My parents getting Santa Claus to visit in the middle of the night on Christmas eve. 🙂
Lora Ceh says
My favorite childhood memory is coming back from Christmas Eve service in our sunday best and baking up a storm while we waited for the Christmas carolers to stop by our house. Most of the time it was snowing during this time =)
Every year my sister and I would wake up super early on Christmas morning (3am) and sit in bed with each other wondering what Santa brought us 🙂
My favorite childhood holiday tradition ???
I couldn’t sleep a long time, because I wanted to help my mother bake a traditional cake and prepare traditional slovak dishes for Christmas dinner.
We prepared our Christmas tree and we sang our favorite Christmas songs.
I love my family because for us are not important gifts.
For us is important LOVE and UNDERSTANDING between us 🙂 !!!
Juliana Tooles says

Then, waking up in the morning, rushing downstairs, and opening all of our gifts while Dad made his famous and very scrumptious Colombian bunuelos and hot cocoa! Now my sweet baby girl gets to experience those same magical moments with us 🙂 [Awseome giveaway! Thank you for the opporunity]

Spending the day in the kitchen cooking with my mom, then raiding the dress up clothes with my sister to put together the perfect “pilgrim” outfits for Thanksgiving dinner.

The best gift I have received was a shopping spree to my favorite stores or my favorite diaper bag.
My favorite gift was a 4 way crucifix from my wife several years ago. I can’t think of any gifts that were the worst.
What a GREAT giveaway!!! My favorite gift I’ve given is probably sneakily buying my husband some outdoor gear he had been wanting and being able to surprise him 🙂 My least favorite gift i received was a shake it weight!

Oh wow, that is an amazing stroller!
My favorite present was a camera from my husband and kids. Since then, I have taken a bunch of pictures and have lots of captured moments to cherish.

my favorite gift I have gotten for Christmas would have to be my first car! I had it for a long time and it was the best present ever!
My favorite holiday memory was helping to provide Christmas for a family in need! I was a teenager and was able to raise the money and choose the gifts myself and it was incredible 🙂
The best gift I’ve gotten was dance lessons for our wedding from my mother in law and the worst would probably be socks! Haha!
My favorite tradition is opening stockings on Christmas morning!

My favorite holiday tradition is making Christmas ornaments with my daughter every year since she was 2. (she’s 7 now) .. Last year my younger daughter joined in the fun. We make them for friends, family and teachers too. I also love taking them to see the tree at Rockafeller Center!
