What Is Your Favorite Christmas Memory?

Updated on December 18, 2010

Do you have a favorite Christmas memory? Maybe you have a few good Christmas memories. Well I have a few that I remember. I am 50 years old so I have experienced 50 Christmases so far. I would say all of them were great - I can't think of one I didn't enjoy but I have to say that I especially enjoyed the ones I experienced as a kid. I love Christmas now but I especially loved Christmas as a kid. However there are a few Christmas memories that stand out in my mind. I would like to share them with you.

Childhood Christmas Memory

One is a memory of a Christmas when I was probably around 10 or 11 years old.  My dad was a teacher in Seattle, WA but sometimes during the Christmas holiday break and Summer holidays he would drive bus for the Seattle city transit system.  That Christmas he had to work Christmas Eve, I am sure my mom was disappointed but us kids were not happy about it at all! So my mom, sister, brother and I went with him on his bus route that Christmas Eve.  We were so excited and my mom had made hot chocolate for out outing and we drank hot chocolate as my dad drove the city bus around downtown Seattle.  We loved looking at all the downtown stores and street Christmas lights and wishing all the bus passengers Merry Christmas as they got on the bus.  We had a blast and I still remember it 40 years later.

Family Christmas Eve Dinner Surprise

 Another Christmas was when my husband and I were just newlyweds (no kids yet) and we went to go visit my parents in Seattle.  We were just ready to sit down for our big Christmas Eve dinner and the power went out.  In fact a large percentage of Seattle's power went out that Christmas Eve.  It was actually a little eerie seeing such a big city like Seattle with no lights.  It was very dark and very quiet.  However, thankfully our dinner was cooked and ready to eat but no lights, so we lit candles and ate by candle light.  And then after dinner we took our lit candles and lit the fireplace and we all sat around the fireplace trying to keep warm while my husband read from the book The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.  Those two Christmas memories stand out for me, they are my favorites.  What are your favorite Christmas memories?  I would love to hear about them.
