What was your most memorable Christmas?
If you had to describe one year that Christmas made an indelible mark (good or bad), what made it so?
It is yet to come. This is my first Christmas together with my husband in our vintage home we just purchased! The decorations are in progress as we speak. I am thrilled beyond measure.
2007. I was in China and they don't do Christmas it was wonderfully peaceful.
My Xmases as a child were all pretty wonderful, of course the ones when we were still young enough to believe in Santa are memorable.
The one Xmas present that I remember most was when I was 5. My brother, 7, made an airplane cockpit for me. It was really just made from a sturdy cardboard box that strawberry plantings came in but he worked out all of the controls and gages and put a tremendous amount of thought and work into it.
The year the entire family was stuck at grandma's house during a major snow storm. Most of us slept on the floor between the Christmas tree with tons of presents beneath it and the fireplace. I normally stayed near the fireplace close to the warmth. The next door neighbors house had a tree land in their living room and fill their house with snow. It was a wonderful Chistmas and the first time I saw snow and ice everywhere.
When I was in third grade I made a Christmas list, which was something I never did too much of as a kid. I remember that Christmas morning like it was yesterday and I remember getting most of what was on my list. The thing that made that Christmas so special was the fact that my family didn't have much growing up, so getting things I asked for was a big deal.
During Christmas of 2008, my then-boyfriend withheld the largest Christmas present bag for me to open last. It contained a smaller bag, which contained an even smaller bag, which contained a box, which contained a perfect solitaire diamond - the best Christmas present I've ever received. He is now my husband of a little over a year.
I have had many memorable Christmases, both growing up in South Dakota making the traditional Swedish dish, Kroppkakor (or palt, made with the raw potato) and in Minnesota as a newly married bride. Many memories were also made in Ohio with two children. Now in Missouri, I'm making more as we head towards retirement years.

What is the most insulting Christmas present you've ever received?One year someone gave me a bottle of 7up and a pack of mentos. Presumably so I could make a fizzy mess with it on the driveway.
