I hope that these will bless another mama the way you all have blessed me and our family.

  1. Going to the midnight Christmas Eve service and then staying up to open gifts when we got home. Then sleeping in and having a lazy Christmas day together.

  2. Favorite Christmas memory pretty much occured every year when me and my grandparents would shop for our tree. It never failed that once loaded up and on our way home my grandmother would be in the car with a big smile on her face and tell us that THIS was the best tree we ever got….every year.

  3. On Christmas Eve, Mom made fun appetizers for supper and we always had eggnog and sparkling grape juice. We felt so grown up! Those times with just the four of us were so special.

  4. Lining up at the top of our stairs with my brother and sister waiting for the OK from mom and dad for us to race down. Each year we alternated who got to be first in line.

  5. Time spent with my family and friends is priceless. Being cuddled up with a cup of coffee and God is beyond compare. I love my Contigo travel mug!

  6. We have gone to see Santa on the fire truck for 35 years – in those first few years, my husband WAS Santa, but we moved from the small town and left the department, but we still travel back every year. Our “boys” are 25 and 28 and we’ll all be going again this year!

  7. One of my favorite Christmas memories – watching my Momma’s Mother open her gifts – she carefully, gratefully, unhurriedly enjoyed every thing she received!

  8. My favorite holiday memory is going up to my Grandma’s one year and seeing snow for the first time! And the time spent with cousins while we were there.

  9. Making ornaments with my mom. Then putting up the tree and decorating with mom, granpa, grandma and waiting for aunt Ella to arrive with all the fancy wrapped presents to go under the tree.

  10. My favorite Christmas memory–my sister, brother, and I acting out the Christmas story before opening gifts Christmas Eve. while we were growing up.

  11. Childhood Christmases. Not a specific one, but as a whole. My parents always made that time of year a special time filled with family. I live very far away from all of my family now, so it makes me appreciate those memories even more.

  12. Our silver tree with blue, red and green balls and the wheel on the floor that shone light at the tree as it turned! Our entire family was together when we had that tree–now both of my folks are gone and two siblings live out of state and the tree is just a memory.

  13. Some of my favorite holiday memories are singing Christmas carols with my brothers when we were children. That is how we would wake our parents on Christmas morning.

  14. My favorite Christmas memory is receiving a handmade baby doll bed–and my beloved grandmother had made all the bedding so my ‘babies’ would be comfy and snug in their bed. That was a sweet Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. My favorite holiday memory is just childhood Christmases and being awakened every year by my younger brother. It was always a special time.

  16. I guess just the family time we spent together decorating and singing songs in the car looking at the lights. We’d also gather together and read scripture in front of our tree and sing a carol every night for advent.

  17. Waiting for Grandpa to take his bath on Christmas Eve before we could open presents. We would pound on the door and tell him to hurry up. He loved teasing us.

  18. I come from a family of 15 kids & so a family gift each year would be a new game. We opened gifts late Christmas eve after barn chores were done & We were home from church so we were up late into the night playing “just one more round”!

  19. Thanks for the giveaway, my favorite Christmas memory is the wonderful items my mom sewed for me and my 2 sisters, clothes to doll clothes to stuffed animals.

  20. Picking out and cutting down the Christmas tree. Then decorating it. No matter what the tree looked like, it always seemed so magical.

  21. My favorite Holiday memory is walking into our living room and seeing it filled with presents. The joy, love and family.

  22. My favorite holiday memory is waking up early and eating pecan glazed sticky buns and everything omelet on Christmas morning with the whole family there.

  23. One of my favorite memories is traditional Slovak Christmas Eve dinner at my Grandma’s. All the extended family was there. I miss that.

  24. My favorite holiday memory is decorating the tree each year. My mother sorted the ornaments so that my brother, sister, and I all had an even amount to put on the tree. Dad set up the video camera and filmed this seemingly boring event every year, but looking back at the footage is absolutely priceless! We would randomly stop to sing a song or share a story in front of the camera, and to see the changes in us year to year is so much fun.

  25. I didn’t have Christmas until I was about 9…I was overwhelmed with everything about it, the gifts, the big meals, and how everyone was happy!

  26. My favorite Christmas memory……..I was a child (maybe 8 or 9). My mom bought me a “Buttery Soft” teddy bear and a baby doll. I can’t explain why, but it made me so happy!! I kept both of them and pasted them to my daughter ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

  27. My favorite memory is going to my Grandma’s farm Christmas Eve. And now she lives in town, but our whole family still gathers at her house, so my children get the experience too!

  28. Going to my grandma’s house for Christmas as a kid. She would have platters and platters full of candies and cookies everywhere. She loved to make all that stuff. I miss her divinity.
    BTW, I have had these on my Amazon wishlist for a few years lol.

    1. We have a couple things in common ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved and miss my Grandma’s Divinity ๐Ÿ™‚ and I never realized how truly helpful these little gadgets were until I got them to review :).

  29. One of my favorite memories is making homemade candy with my mother and sisters. I’m so thrilled to have found Trim Healthy Mama and can continue this holiday tradition with healthier choices.

  30. When my sister and I were really little, my grandparents took us for a drive to see the lights. When we returned Santa had come with lots of gifts. When included Holly Hobby and a puppy. My grandparents were not normally there for christmas since they lived in another state.

  31. my favorite holiday memories are with my family! i don’t know if i could pick just one! i love how special everything feels and I love thinking of wonderful and fun things to get or make my family

  32. A couple of years ago my twin sons weren’t home for Christmas. One was in Alaska and the other was in Zimbabwe. We were able to facetime them from across the world. The picture we have of my husband holding one computer on his lap with one son and me with the other is a memory I’m thankful for. We missed them dearly, but I was so thankful for the technology to be able to see them that day!

    1. I can understand that sentiment… one of my uncles lives in Australia. So when I was growing up we only got to see him every 5 years in person, but every Christmas my grandparents or my dad would call him. My dad used to Skype with him often and I still do when the opportunity arises.

  33. Our favorite holiday tradition with the kids is making Jesus a birthday cake! The kids look forward to it every year and take great pride in decorating it all pretty like a birthday cake!

  34. When it snowed 54 inches in one weekend and the power went out at my parents and we lived a whole week with only the power of a generator when we absolutely needed it. It was a wonderful, no electronic device free week that will never be forgotten.

  35. My favorite Christmas memories are spending Christmas Eve at my grandparents. We would all eat and the kids would play and the adults would play cards. We were always good and tired and ready for Santa to come!

  36. Growing up my family always went to a movie on Christmas. It’s not a tradition we continue because my husband didn’t like it, but I really enjoyed it as a kid.

  37. I loved, and still love, driving around to look at Christmas lights on Christmas eve. Then coming home to hot chocolate.

  38. We took the kids to go cut a Christmas tree. It started to snow big, fluffy flakes. We took time out to have a snowball fight. It’s a great memory!

  39. My favorite holiday memory is decorating the house with all the Christmas decorations, especially decorating the trees… yep, multiple trees! (I have a tiny ‘obsession’ with Hallmark ornaments and have 2 artificial trees, and 3 metal trees. Craziness!!)

  40. My favorite Christmas Memory is giving my grandkids a wall hanging with their grandmother’s hand prints on it. She passed away before they were born.

  41. My favorite Christmas memory was making it home in time for our first Christmas as a family after spending the first 7 months of my daughter and her twin brother’s life in an out of state hospital. She had received the precious gift of a double lung transplant and was in a hospital for the first seven months of her life.

  42. My favorite Christmas memories is looking for Santa Clause with all my cousins while our parents put the gifts under the tree.

  43. My favorite Christmas memory is of my Great Uncle Fred always saying on Christmas morning it look like Santa left his whole sleigh.

  44. My favorite Christmas memory is from 4 years ago when our middle daughter surprised us with a visit home after she had moved 500 miles away and had told us she couldn’t make it home for Christmas!

  45. Visiting Grandma’s-either next door or out of state. Locally, she always had hard colorful candies and we’d play games, Flinch being one. Out of state meant watching lights twinkle in the upstairs window and playing with cousins!

  46. My favorite holiday memory would be from several years ago when my family and I were serving as missionaries in the country of Haiti. It was too warm for Christmas (says this girl who was born and raised in western PA), and I was having trouble getting in “the Christmas spirit.” We went to church for our Christmas service, and I was deeply touched by the realization that the true spirit of Christmas is worship–worship of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  47. My favorite holiday memory is going to my grandparents’ house and sleeping on the cushion on the window seat. There was always lots of delicious food, beautiful decorations, and special times with cousins I didn’t get to see much.

  48. My favorite memory is one Christmas when the snow was SO deep we couldn’t get up the driveway to my grandparents house! We loaded all our gifts for grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and climbed that long hill of a driveway. I couldn’t do it now, but it sure was fun when I was a kid! Loved those Christmas’ when ALL the family was able to gather together under one roof and celebrate the REAL reason for the Season – Jesus and His birth!

  49. I now have 8 grandchildren, so my best memories involve the Christmases I have spent watching them grow up. Nothing better than spending Christmas with grandbabies!!!

  50. Our family gathered at my parents’ home for a scrumptious meal, singing and a devotional given by my father. Precious memories…

  51. My favorite Holiday Memory? That’s a tough one. I guess it would be our open-house song fest every Christmas eve. Friends would come celebrate and Mom had printed Christmas song booklets for everyone. Some beautiful music was made!

  52. My favorite memories are being with family and enjoying time together. My dream is to have all six of our kids, their spouses and all fourteen grandkids together for Christmas again. Due to some being out of state, we’ve not enjoyed that blessing in many years!

  53. My favorite holiday memory was dancing with my grandparents on Christmas Eve when I was 11 and we were hosting at our house for the first year. Best time in the world.

  54. My dad was so excited on Xmas Eve, he wanted to have all the festivities then than wait until Xmas morning, which we thought wwas great. Mom, not so much. One year they told us Santa would not come if we didn’t go to bed. So we went to bed, but we didn’t sleep. Then we heard Santa’s loud ho-ho-ho-ing, and we got up to find all the goodies under the tree. So we had to open everything, and then of course nobody wanted to go to bed. Poor mom.

  55. My favorite holiday memory was when my hubby bought me a plug in ice chest for Christmas (I was hoping for a computer)!

  56. I used to love de praying sugar cookies with my mom and of course blasting Christmas music all month long. :-). My favorite is just getting together with family and all the food.

  57. My favorite memory is going to my grandmothers for Christmas dinners! She made the best Danish desserts when I was growing up!

  58. Spending time with family without so many distractions is always a blessing. We celebrate life and Jesus all year and try not to go “crazy” over any one “holiday” and just take time to enjoy all that God has given us.

  59. My Dad making a fire in the fireplace on Christmas Eve and then having all our favorite finger foods that mom made. Miss it all. Wish I was 7 again.

  60. The year my brothers got a couple larger items so Santa left my presents in the kitchen! Was so much fun to have that area all to myself to pay with new baby doll!

  61. My favorite Holiday memory is the last Christmas we had before my father went to Heaven unexpectedly in January 2015. It was the last time all the family was together and he was able to meet my daughter’s soon to be husband and know that she had finally found her soulmate. He was so happy and I’ll never forget the joy and laughter we all shared that day.

    1. Pamela, My dad went home in 2012… keeping you in prayer during the Holiday season ((hugs)) and your memory is a special one for sure!! May your holidays be blessed!!

  62. as an adult, christmas eve church with my children. as a child, christmas eve at my grandmother’s with lots of cousins, aunts & uncles around

  63. All the many pictures that my Dad took of each and every present. My Dad passed away this year making this memory even more special.

  64. My favorite Christmas memory was the year my parents got me a portable CD player using money my grandparents had sent. When I thanked my grandparents for the CD player, they had no idea what it was–or what CD’s were.

  65. My fav Christmas memory is opening Christmas presents with my family on Christmas eve with all the Christmas lights on and the room dim lighted.=) I also remember when I was little when my grandma was still alive that I crawled on to her lap for cuddles and she just held me tight and rocked me in the rocking chair.=)

  66. My favorite holiday memory is the year we went out in the woods and cut down a tree that had not been trimmed on a tree farm. When we got it inside it was the ugliest tree ever. So we trooped back out and cut down another one. That two was ugly when brought inside! At that point my Dad said we were not going after another one. So he sawed branches from one, wire them onto the other one and made us a beautiful tree!

  67. My favorite Christmas memory was always going to my Swedish grandma’s house. She make lefse, rommegret, sandbakkels, krumkake, rosettes, every year. All Scandinavian treats. She died 30 years ago, so I miss her so!
