    Visiting my family and spend time together with my kids.

  14. Roxanne Brown • December 15, 2017 @ 10:14 AM

    All of my best memories of Christmas are tied to Christmas Eve celebrations with my Grandparents in their home with the rest of the family in attendance.

    We have a large family and Gramma and Grampas home was small so seating was limited. It was always a game to see who could sit the longest before getting up to get a coffee or supper or go to the bathroom. Once up the chair was fair game for the next person to fill it.

    It was our version of Christmas Musical Chairs.

  15. Amy Moylan • December 15, 2017 @ 10:15 AM

    My favourite Christmas memory is gathering with our whole family Christmas Eve to have a Snack Supper – we would play lots of card games and board games and just eat appetizers all night. We always laughed the most on those nights and just enjoyed being together.

  16. Alexei Vasiliev • December 15, 2017 @ 10:18 AM

    When I was a kid every Christmas spent with my whole family was the best

  17. Arlene Laughren • December 15, 2017 @ 10:31 AM

    We often got new clothes for Christmas and we enjoyed this very much.

  18. Stephanie Moore • December 15, 2017 @ 10:33 AM

    Having all the family together – they all live in different places now and we seldom all get together at the same time!

  19. Calvin Fung • December 15, 2017 @ 10:39 AM

    Christmas in Banff two years ago was totally my best Christmas. It was stunning to celebrate the magic of the holidays in the Rockies.

  22. Bradley Cook • December 15, 2017 @ 10:44 AM

    Best was having my brother tell me he had seen reindeer tracks out in the woods near our farm.

  23. Joanne Careri • December 15, 2017 @ 10:45 AM

    My best Christmas memory is my daughter’s first Christmas. I was a new mom and I loved experiencing Christmas through her eyes.

  26. Matthew ricks • December 15, 2017 @ 10:48 AM

    my best Christmas memory was when the entire family woke up together in one house (11 of us little ones in total) and all opened gifts and stockings together. the amount of gifts and than garbage is so hilarious to look back on now. miss those days when Christmas was about the little ones !

  27. Brian Hwang • December 15, 2017 @ 10:52 AM

    I wrote about this story for another answer but my best Christmas memory was opening my first Nintendo Entertainment System as a kid because my parents went all out making it look like it came from Santa. They didn’t put it under the tree but left it in the fireplace and the wrapping paper was covered in droplets of water to make it look like Santa had just come in from the snow and dropped it off. It was magical for a little kid and I was ecstatic to open up a Nintendo.

  39. Gladys Marie • December 15, 2017 @ 11:36 AM

    I had an interesting/memorable Christmas back in 1986 – I lived in Australia and with it being so hot (their Summer) we ate a cold Christmas dinner (most of it was prepared/cooked the night before because of the heat!?) and it was so strange not to see snow but rather green grass outside!?… many Aussies go to the beach on Christmas Day but we ate and exchanged gifts but in the evening we had a BBQ!… great memories!!!

  40. Giant Sis • December 15, 2017 @ 11:42 AM

    One of my favorite Christmas memories was 2 years ago – my husband and I drove 17 hours to Florida and surprised his family with our visit! His mom FREAKED out and was SO thrilled to see us. It was pretty awesome.

  41. Elizabeth Matthiesen • December 15, 2017 @ 11:42 AM

    A Christmas when I was very young 6 or 7 I’d guess that we had so much snow that sidewalks were more like tunnels. That was a magical Christmas.

  42. Joylyn Tuuri • December 15, 2017 @ 11:44 AM

    Watching my daughter open Christmas presents for the first time. She kept getting upset if you tried to get her to open another one because she just wanted to play with the one that was in front of her.

  43. Liisa Stover • December 15, 2017 @ 11:44 AM

    Because I love all things horror, my fave xmas memory was from when I was 3 or 4 and my family all got together; cousins, aunts, grandparents etc… I was asleep at the time, and my cousin got up in the middle of the night, and there in the hall way was my toddler sized doll walking towards him!! He was terrified and ran to get his brothers, who came and found the doll lying in the hallway. He swears up and down that the thing was standing up and coming for him! In the morning, I was allowed to play with my new doll, but my parents didn’t let me bring it home!!

  44. Cathy Breda • December 15, 2017 @ 11:45 AM

    My best memories are with my family and friends. There are so many to choose from.

  45. Amy Heffernan • December 15, 2017 @ 11:45 AM

    My favorite Christmas memory was always getting to pick out an Angel from the giving tree at church with my mom and then going on a shopping date with her to pick out the gifts for the angel we chose! I remember the first time she let me pick which child we could give to when I was 6 and it was awesome!

  46. Amberleah • December 15, 2017 @ 11:45 AM

    My best Christmas gift was when I got my first horse when I was 13.

  47. Pete Drummond • December 15, 2017 @ 11:46 AM

    My best present came when i was 13. Unlike buddy in the Christmas Story i wanted an archery set not a red rider bb gun and I got it. Now I’m a single parent of 2 boys and never get anything so the good times are past. GL all Merry Christmas

  48. Wendy Schuler • December 15, 2017 @ 11:46 AM

    The first year my brother and I slept in on Christmas morning, and my parents had to wake us up because they were too excited to wait any longer! 🙂

  49. Leanne Lange • December 15, 2017 @ 11:47 AM

    My favourite Christmas time was going out to my grandparents farm for the big celebration from morning to evening. Those times were always so great and wish I can turn back time!

  52. Karen King • December 15, 2017 @ 11:49 AM

  54. Lisa VanBekkum • December 15, 2017 @ 11:49 AM

    Best Memories hands down are going tobogganing with my dad down the hills of snow! He was just like a big kid so full of life. We would have GT snow racer races and build jumps to fly off of while sledding. I hold those memories so tight and now make similar ones with my own kids. Its all about family and memories….nothing else matters.

  55. Debra Fisher • December 15, 2017 @ 11:50 AM

    #12daysofgiveaways #TributeCA WOW! what a prize! Too bad my boys are not little anymore…but I know exactly where I could donate this and share the cheer with a bunch of little ones. Besides Christmas, my favorite holiday was last year in 2016 when I got to take my boys on our first ever tropical vacation as a family..they are 19 and 26. I took them to the Dominican and their eyes lit up at the beach, ocean and all inclusive bar! LOL.

  58. Tammy Lever • December 15, 2017 @ 11:50 AM

    My best Christmas memory of all time was the year I surprised my parents on Christmas morning. I took a Greyhound bus on Christmas eve from Calgary to Kamloops and then showed up on their doorstep just as they were about to open presents…the looks on their faces were priceless!

  59. Lisa Mihalovics • December 15, 2017 @ 11:52 AM

  60. Donna Maroulis • December 15, 2017 @ 11:53 AM

    My best Christmas memory is of the year I was eight – a group of us kids caroled door to door raising money to provide a Christmas grocery hamper and gifts for a newly arrived refugee family. It was so rewarding to see the smiles when we delivered it ! I’ll never forget the feeling.

  61. joyce shane • December 15, 2017 @ 11:53 AM

  69. Wendy Thys • December 15, 2017 @ 11:59 AM

    A few years ago my husband and I took our kids to Disney Land just before Christmas, we went with my MIL and FIL, and with my SIL and her husband, and kids. There were 11 of us all together. We then went to Phoenix and had Christmas at my MIL’s house and even jumped in the very chilly, unheated pool.

  70. Deborah Fong • December 15, 2017 @ 11:59 AM

    My best christmas memory is when my parents bought me my Holly Hobbit doll. I still have it after 30 years.

  76. Jennifer Hatton • December 15, 2017 @ 12:03 PM

    I loved trying to figure out which gifts were mine. Mom and Dad used a specific wrapping paper for each kid. We didn’t know which was ours until we found a scrap in the toe of our stockings!

  77. Shelly Green • December 15, 2017 @ 12:04 PM

    Christmas Eve Polka dance party in my Grandma’s basement.

  102. Ruth Anderson • December 15, 2017 @ 12:25 PM

    My best Christmas memory was the Christmas after my husband passed away leaving me as a single mom with four boys. They were very worried that we wouldn’t have much of a Christmas as it was a struggle, money was tight. The look on their faces was such joy, when they saw gifts under the tree. We now do what we can to help others who are struggling at this time of year to make their Christmas as joyous as possible.

  103. Pamela Tom • December 15, 2017 @ 12:26 PM

    Every Christmas has been great, getting together with the family, but super stoked this year, as our first grand daughter will be here any day!

  109. Ritchie Annand • December 15, 2017 @ 12:29 PM

    Packing up all the kids to my parents’ and sisters’ places in England for the first time. Despite so much trepidation and worry that they would be bored, they were good on the plane and good as house guests and delighted my folks on Christmas Day 🙂

  110. kristen visser • December 15, 2017 @ 12:29 PM

    My favorite Holiday memories were those spent with both my grandparents at their house as they hosted Christmas every year

    My favourite Christmas memory is when my son showed up on Christmas eve with no warning! I had not seen him in many years and it was such a joyous moment when he came through the door.

  112. Frank Fattore • December 15, 2017 @ 12:30 PM

    That would be Christmas 2000, my niece’s and nephew’s first Christmas with the family.

  113. melanie centis • December 15, 2017 @ 12:31 PM

    As a child i loved waking up and seeing the cookies, milk, and sugar gone.

  114. Jenn Meade • December 15, 2017 @ 12:33 PM

    Jenn Meade – my favorite Christmas memory would be the Christmas we spent with my grandparents in 1990 – their house had burned down a week prior to Christmas due to an electrical fire, my uncle managed to save everyone in the house but it burned flat. My grandparents and uncle were moved to temporary housing in one of the empty PMQ’s on the military base and that is where we all spent Christmas together – everyone came together and we had a wonderful Christmas despite the fire taking everything.

  115. Bonnie Monette • December 15, 2017 @ 12:33 PM

    My favourite memory was the birth of my nephew on Christmas Day! We all went to the hospital to see this new addition to our family! ❤️

    My best Christmas memory was my son’s face when he came into the living the first time he was old enough to know what was going on.

  117. Ray Turner • December 15, 2017 @ 12:36 PM

    My best holiday memory is singalongs with my family and learning how to harmonize.

  118. Kimberly Mitchell • December 15, 2017 @ 12:38 PM

    Each and every year is the best Christmas memory. Growing up, every year was fantastic, then Christmases with my husband, then the kids came along. They are all wonderful memories that I treasure.

  119. Emmie • December 15, 2017 @ 12:40 PM

    My best memories are always with my Mom and Dad, celebrating a traditional Ukrainian Xmas eve.

  120. Anu Chopra • December 15, 2017 @ 12:42 PM

    Best Christmas memory of all time was seeing my son sing a song on stage for Christmas show at his school!

  121. Marilou Macaldo • December 15, 2017 @ 12:42 PM

  122. Jeanine Robinson • December 15, 2017 @ 12:43 PM

    My favorite Christmas memory is when my brother and I gave my mom a travel voucher so she could visit her brother in Calgary! She even had enough money left over to fly up to the Bahamas with her best friend!

  123. Pam noakes • December 15, 2017 @ 12:43 PM

    My best Christmas of all time was my nephews first Christmas . Having a baby around makes Christmas so much more magical . Now I have 3 nephews and 1 niece and Christmas is so special . I love seeing everything through their eyes . It’s magical . Merry Christmas everyone !

  124. NJ Nowoselski • December 15, 2017 @ 12:44 PM

    My dad has past now but my best memory is of him opening gifts. Even at the age of 60 he giggled like a kid. His childhood he may get 1 gift sooo Christmas gifts were always precious to him. His giggle I loved.

  125. Frances Lennie • December 15, 2017 @ 12:46 PM

    I remember one very special and romantic Christmas Eve when I was young. My boyfriend and I were visiting friends and family and it started to snow just a few hours before midnight – big fluffy giant snowflakes! Until then there was not a hint of snow and by Christmas morning it was a winter wonderland. My folks were still alive and vigorous – I was just a young woman with the man who was later to marry and and my heart was filled with the joy and wonder of Christmas – and of life! It’s a beautiful memory!

  126. Holly Daniels • December 15, 2017 @ 12:46 PM

    My best Christmas memories were always spent at my Grandparents house. The house full of people laughing, eating, kids excited that “Santa” stopped there with gifts too. My Grandma’s amazing cooking, and her famous ricotta cheesecake. That’s what Christmas is all about. Just enjoying each other.

  127. D Jones • December 15, 2017 @ 12:47 PM

    My best holiday memory is the first Xmas my boys were old enough to get excited about leaving cookies out for Santa, and opening the gifts he’d left the next morning.

  128. Susan Hanley • December 15, 2017 @ 12:49 PM

    Our first baby was born in mid December and we brought her home from the hospital less than a week before Christmas. We didn’t have a tree yet so out we went with a baby that was days old. Every one at the tree lot was oohing and awing over her. It was a wonderful Christmas.

  129. Daniel Schneider • December 15, 2017 @ 12:55 PM

    Daniel Schneider. My best Christmas was 1989 I remember while I was sleeping I heard this metal slamming noise and it woke me up and my Mom played it so cool. She said that must be Santa on the roof arriving in his slay. She said you hot to go back to bed now lol. When I woke up in the morning I ran to the living room and the milk and cookies I had left were gone and the glass and plate were empty. Presents were all over the place and I couldn’t figure out which one I wanted to open first so I just went for the first one on reach. I ripped through all the wrapping paper and gifts so fast. I remember getting my favorite gift of that year the Play-doh Snack Shop which was like a fast food set up. You would pretend to make ice cream , burgers, hotdogs, etc. It was so cool. I remember my friend and I wearing the chef hats that came with it and we were trying to make the best burgers and desserts for the customers. It actually was a good way to prepare you for the fast food industry and trying to be fast as well. I played with that to the death of until all the play-doh dried up in the machine and it didn’t work anymore. Anyways I got a number of good gifts and my Mom I mean Santa made everything come together so right. I won’t ever forget any of it.

  130. Ryan Buschemeyer • December 15, 2017 @ 12:55 PM

    Being up North at the Log Cabin with the whole Family Cousins and Aunts and Uncles. I was so beautiful that year.

  131. Sarah Robinson • December 15, 2017 @ 12:59 PM

    My best Christmas memory is from 1999, 2010 and 2013. Those years were when my kids were born. Watching their eyes light up the first time they see the Christmas tree. Nothing better in the whole world. Merry Christmas!!!

    The happiest Christmas is when my parents finally have seen my too son’s in 2014 we’re in Canada and they live in Southeast Asia. The kids are now 13 and 8 and would love to travel back to see them again.

  136. Sean Thompson • December 15, 2017 @ 1:08 PM

    When we finally stopped leaving the house on Christmas Day, and the kids were able to just relax and actually be able to open all their presents and play with everything. So much easier

  137. Lesley MintoViznei • December 15, 2017 @ 1:08 PM

    My favourite memory was the year we spent in Mazatlan, Mexico. There were Santa piñata by the pool, green iguanas, huevos rancheros for Christmas breakfast and fireworks on the beach! It was absolutely amazing!

  138. Amber Young • December 15, 2017 @ 1:09 PM

    My best Christmas memory is of having the house full of people for Christmas breakfast growing up. My parents would cook for hours and family and friends would stop by all morning long. The house was always full and busy, but happy.

  139. Shaunna Johnson • December 15, 2017 @ 1:09 PM

    My favorite gift was my cabbage patch doll. Such a great gift it was from friends of the family they had no children to buy for.

  140. Kirstin Crabtree • December 15, 2017 @ 1:10 PM

    My favourite Christmas memory is from when I was about 5 or 6 years old. My family was together for Christmas Eve and there was a big snowstorm that night, and the power went out. We ate Chinese food by candlelight, and the phone rang. It was Santa Claus on the phone! It was so special to me as a child.

  141. jan leeuw • December 15, 2017 @ 1:10 PM

    Best memory was spending Christmas overseas.

  142. Scott MacMillan • December 15, 2017 @ 1:11 PM

    I am 65 and the happiest Christmas was when I was about 9 or 10 and received a transistor radio.They were the coolest things on the planet back in the day.I was the only kid at school who had such an exotic item.We would get together at recess and try to tune in to US stations and the new music which as beginning to appear.We were bouncing to Motown and the Beatles.

  143. Ronald Poon • December 15, 2017 @ 1:16 PM

  148. Wanda Rose • December 15, 2017 @ 1:25 PM

  151. Steve Oliver • December 15, 2017 @ 1:28 PM

    It was always picking the one gift to open on Christmas Eve night!

  152. Adina H. • December 15, 2017 @ 1:30 PM

    Modelling a house coat that I had bought for my grandmother. It was so big that both she and I could fit inside it together.

  153. Rosanne Del Corpo • December 15, 2017 @ 1:33 PM

    It would have to be the last Christmas before my mom passed on where I would of been 18 years old – It was a Christmas filled with such joy – my second brother & his wife announced that we would have an additional member next year at this time, my oldest brother & my third brother both had gotten married 2 months before (yeah I have a lot of brothers – 4 to be exact & an a sister) so we had quite a bit to celebrate that Christmas – it was such a beautiful day – snowing but the snow was so fluffy & white (quite difficult to explain) haven’t seen snow like that ever again. It was the best Christmas ever – I now have my own family – still try to keep up the traditions mom did with us but it’s never the same – today’s generation are not as sentimental like in my day. This year their is another member – my great nephew Marciano – he’s 10 months old & will be his first Christmas & these toys under the tree for him would be great – he may not enjoy all of them but there are a few he will. Thank you for the chance.

  154. Tammy harrison • December 15, 2017 @ 1:38 PM

    I have always loved remembering decorating our Christmas tree with my mom and hearing the stories behind some if the tree ornaments!

    It was the year it started snowing Christmas Eve as we walked home from dinner at a family member’s home. It was just magical.

  158. Julie Bolduc • December 15, 2017 @ 1:49 PM

    My favorite Christmas memorie is when my dad gave me a kitten I will always cherish this moment

    When I was a kid our dad was deployed during Desert Storm and he missed Christmas with us. The best present was having him home for the following Christmas and every Christmas since! Much love to our troops and their families!

  161. Carrie-Anne DeCaprii • December 15, 2017 @ 1:51 PM

    I remember my son at three bouncing a Hackey Sack off his great grandfather’s head.

  165. Thelma Ball • December 15, 2017 @ 1:54 PM

    my best Christmas was the year after our house had burned down, I was 4. We had moved in with my Great Aunt in her old farmhouse overlooking the ocean. Though we didn’t have much because of the fire, my parents bought some 2nd hand toys including a doll carriage for me. My Poppa had painted it and put new material on its bonnet and I loved that carriage. Sometimes the years we remember best are borne out of great hardship.

  166. Jenn Day • December 15, 2017 @ 1:55 PM

    The year my 2 1/2 month old son fit into a stocking! Have the pic framed, he was so tiny, one of my fav memories!

    The best Christmas was when all the family was together at the same time. Life is busy now and some have moved away, some have passed away. Wish we could have special day again.

  169. Julie Heredia • December 15, 2017 @ 2:00 PM

  172. Violet Poon • December 15, 2017 @ 2:08 PM

    Opening gifts at midnight with my siblings and parents. We didn’t have a lot of gifts, but they were always meaningful and as a child, I always remember those moments.

  173. Sam • December 15, 2017 @ 2:09 PM

    One of my favorites is getting gt snow racers and getting to use them with my family.

  174. Jennifer vaillancourt • December 15, 2017 @ 2:09 PM

    The first time my daughter came down Christmas morning and realized Santa had come.

  175. Deborah Tack • December 15, 2017 @ 2:12 PM

    My memorable Christmas was when I was learning to read, and woke up early and snuck out and opened a gift that I thought said Deb, but it said Dad. It was a box of chocolates, and I ate a bunch of them before I realized the gift wasn’t mine. I didn’t get into trouble, but it made for a memorable Christmas!

  176. John Allison • December 15, 2017 @ 2:13 PM

    My best Christmas memory is when years ago, all of our immediate family members would get together on Christmas Day for dinner. It was not uncommon to have 40-50 people, but alas times have changed.

  177. Christine vitucci • December 15, 2017 @ 2:18 PM

    For me it was hanging a positive pregnancy test on my parents Christmas tree like an ornament to announce we were having a baby!

  180. Terry Stoelers • December 15, 2017 @ 2:24 PM

    It will this Christmas with my first new grandson. I can’t wait

  181. Glenda Wong • December 15, 2017 @ 2:26 PM

    Every holiday is the best! Maybe it’s my long term – short term memory but it’s great to get together with family and friends! Merry Christmas!

  182. Debra Binning • December 15, 2017 @ 2:33 PM

    Best Christmas memory of all time is when I was a kid and our whole family got together. I remember my grandma saying this was her best day ever because we all came together and that’s what family and holidays are for.

  183. Candy Co • December 15, 2017 @ 2:34 PM

    Family get together is definitely the favourite memory

  184. Rose Holloway • December 15, 2017 @ 2:36 PM

    When I was a little girl I got my very own easy bake oven. Spent hours on end baking my little brother cakes

  185. Yvette McDermott • December 15, 2017 @ 2:38 PM

    Thank you for the prizes – these are awesome and I would be able to give them all away easily. I have 5 grandchildren (3 from my daughter) and (2 from my niece). My favourite Christmas memory is of us all sitting around at my mom’s after Christmas dinner playing board games then going out skating. It just seemed like a really fun laid back day and the only electronics then were the tv and the record player. Christmas music was playing most of the day too. Thank you again.

  186. Cheryl Germain • December 15, 2017 @ 2:39 PM

    My best Christmas memory of all time was when all of my mother’s far-flung immediate family and their children got together at our house for Christmas dinner. We had so much fun together!

    Christmas with my parents who are no longer with us.

  189. Debbie Smith • December 15, 2017 @ 2:41 PM

    The Christmas when my Mom made my sisters and I all these homemade Barbie doll clothes! Each outfit was crafted with love! Satins, silks, lace and scrap materials all loving stitched together with the finest of stitches. Each item was unique and no one else in our neighbourhood had these original creations. When I was older, I learned that my parents had about $1 to spend on each of us six children and they made it so magical! My Mom told me she would sew after we all went to bed creating these masterpieces. I remember this gorgeous blue satin strapless ball gown for my Barbie that I was so proud of!

  190. Amber Smith • December 15, 2017 @ 2:41 PM

    When my mom fell asleep and we came down to find no presents from Santa. I realized that morning it was her all along and felt appreciation for efforts all those years. – Amber Smith

  206. Karen Evans • December 15, 2017 @ 3:01 PM

    My favourite holiday memory was way back when my daughters were younger, we didn’t have much money, so I made them dolls made of old nylons and yarn. When they opened the boxes they had the happiest look on their faces. They still have their dolls, packed away in their closets.

  207. Melissa Mark • December 15, 2017 @ 3:04 PM

    The reunion with my mom’s family a few years ago in Canmore, Alberta was the best!

  208. Shannon Cook • December 15, 2017 @ 3:04 PM

    My best memory is 27 years ago when I became a mom on Christmas morning. That was the day that I really understood the magic of the holidays. From that year on, seeing the joy in my children’s eyes was the best present ever. And now I am creating new memories with my grandkids.

  209. Jonathan Mark • December 15, 2017 @ 3:07 PM

    My mom’s family reunion at Canmore was wonderful, I had a chance to meet many of my relatives from eastern Canada, Vancouver, New Jersey, Australia and Japan.

We always laughed the most on those nights and just enjoyed being together as a family <3

    Best Christmas memory was being back home with family, after missing 5 years due to living abroad

  225. Mary Ann Dudragne • December 15, 2017 @ 3:33 PM

    When our daughter was little, one year all she wanted for Christmas was her very own Christmas Tree. Every time anyone asked her what she wanted, that is the only thing she would say she wanted. Christmas Morning we stood near her doorway and watched her wake up… the first thing she seen was a little (approx 18″ high) Christmas Tree with mini lights all lit up and mini decorations. The first thing we heard her say was “Ohhhh, Santa!! My very own Christmas Tree!!” She was thrilled and had that tree up every year in her room until it fell apart.

  228. Giordana Venturi • December 15, 2017 @ 3:57 PM

    My best X-Mas memory was when I got Dragon Warrior for X-Mas.
    I started playing it at 08:00, and I swear it was only an hour later they were calling me for supper.
    My whole day just vanished in this game.

  245. Bernadette Evans • December 15, 2017 @ 4:58 PM

    I was 4 or 5 and there was a pink stuffed dog under the tree. I was so excited and exclaimed who is this for? One of my brothers replied who do you think it’s for. I come from a family of 8 and was so excited when I seen that stuffed toy. I kept it for over 40 years.

  246. Kelly Enright • December 15, 2017 @ 5:06 PM

    The traditions that have continued for all the years of my life. Christmas Eve, tree decorating, seeing the kids eyes light up.

  247. Cathy M. Lee • December 15, 2017 @ 5:08 PM

    Listening to Conway Twitty’s Christmas is for the Birds each year while decorating the tree and we still carry on this tradition each and every year since the 1980s.

  250. Tanya Boychuk • December 15, 2017 @ 5:11 PM

    Our tradition of baking as a family and my grandmother would join us. I loved watching her make the sugar pie without using any measuring cups. She would dump the ingredients on the crust and just mix.

  251. Cady Bisschop • December 15, 2017 @ 5:18 PM

    My favourite Christmas was the year my daughter was born! It completed our family!

  252. Silvia D • December 15, 2017 @ 5:19 PM

    our first Christmas together and our 3 month son. Was so special!

  253. Doug Mickey • December 15, 2017 @ 5:23 PM

    The best Christmas — One year we had more friends & neighbours with us for Christmas dinner than family, because my mother always insisted that no one should spend the time alone. The neighbourhood was a delightful mix of young & old, and we had a merry old time!

  254. Debra Sexton • December 15, 2017 @ 5:25 PM

    It was a surprise party given for my 50th Birthday. My daughter planned it months in advance and totally pulled off the surprise! ❤️🎉🎂🎈

    My best Christmas memory was the year our whole family went to Disney World for the Christmas Holidays. It is such a magical place that time of year.

  261. Lori Watson • December 15, 2017 @ 5:48 PM

    My most memorable Christmas was the year my brother and I (ages 7 and 8) got bicycles. The parents hid them in the basement, in the old cold cellar room, and covered them. But we found them, and we rode them (without their knowledge). We had to be very good actors on Christmas morning and pretend we were surprised they got us bikes. 🙂 🙂

  262. Christine Schultz • December 15, 2017 @ 5:58 PM

    The best Christmas gift I ever received was a suitcase when I was 17. I used that thing until it literally fell apart. I never would have thought to take that first trip had it not been for the suitcase.

  263. Jeanette Jackson • December 15, 2017 @ 6:02 PM

    My best memory is the year, when we were kids, that my brother bought my sister and I a puppy.

  264. Joan LeVasseur • December 15, 2017 @ 6:03 PM

    One of my best Christmases was the year my Mom and her brother sat down at the piano and played duets plus Christmas carols that the whole gang of 22 cousins and aunts & uncles sang.

  265. Kerry Klimosko • December 15, 2017 @ 6:03 PM

  267. Cara Surzyshyn • December 15, 2017 @ 6:18 PM

    I have so many wonderful Christmas memories. I still remember waking up before everyone else Christmas morning to open my stocking. I’d then put everything back in the stocking and go wake up my brother to open our stockings together. I’d then put everything back for a third time and go wake up my parents to open it again!! Still love every part of Christmas and it’s even better now that I have 3 kids to share the excitement with.

  268. Amy Lees • December 15, 2017 @ 6:24 PM

    I loved getting all together and watching the chicken cannon off cbc on New Years!

  269. Elaine Beierbach • December 15, 2017 @ 6:30 PM

    Just what every good little boy and girl would love.

  270. Roxana Reid • December 15, 2017 @ 6:31 PM

    My daughter was born Christmas Day-Best gift ever

  271. Candance Robison • December 15, 2017 @ 6:31 PM

    I remember when we had this dog named Nipper and she loved to open gifts. We used to wrap up individual pieces of rawhide treats for her and she would carefully bite off every piece of paper and spit it out until she had unwrapped her present. Every year year she had a stocking under the tree just like everyone else in the family. She was the best dog.
    R.I.P. Nipper.

  272. Dennis Beierbach • December 15, 2017 @ 6:34 PM

    I have children who would adore these toys.

  273. Theresa A. • December 15, 2017 @ 6:42 PM

    The best Christmas was the one where all my children and grandchildren were home at the same time. It is a rare occurrence, and made for great memories. Happy Holidays!

  274. Arlene Serniak • December 15, 2017 @ 6:45 PM

    My favorite Christmas memory – every year on Christmas eve we got to open 1 gift. It was always new pajamas (which my mom had already washed). Our beds would have fresh sheets and with the new pajamas we would fall asleep dreaming about Santa! All of us in the family still continue this tradition with our children.

  275. Marilyn Stanley • December 15, 2017 @ 6:47 PM

    My best Christmas was when my aunt and uncle come to visit with my six cousins and they got ‘storm-stayed’ and stayed at our house Christmas Eve. We had twelve kids and four adults Christmas morning – what chaos – what fun – what memories!!!!

  276. Jennifer Lo • December 15, 2017 @ 6:48 PM

    The best was to celebrate Christmas with my dad before he passed away….

  277. Jennifer King • December 15, 2017 @ 6:49 PM

    The year my sister surprised me and came here for Christmas. I wish she could do it again minus the surprise!

  278. Georgia Bell • December 15, 2017 @ 6:49 PM

    My best memory is always having my Christmas stocking hanging from the foot of my bed so I was able to dive in and open all the gifts in it as soon as I woke up on Christmas morning! No waiting for anyone else to get up -just open and have fun!

  279. Shirley OFlynn • December 15, 2017 @ 6:52 PM

    One of my favorite Christmas memories is of my son’s first Christmas. It was wonderful seeing him so excited about opening his presents.

  290. Toni Bajer • December 15, 2017 @ 8:11 PM

    Christmas 1978…my oldest nephew was just 3 and was filled with the excitement of Christmas. He was hopping up and down all over my parents house. He was told several times not to hop on the basement stairs to the rec room. Well you guessed it, he hopped one time too many and went ass over tea kettle to the bottom of the stairs. His mom after seeing he was relatively unharmed scooped him up and sat him between us. After a short while, he looked up at his mom and said, “You know mom, I could hurt myself doing that”. I shook like jelly with laughter, tears coming out of my eyes. Out of the mouths of babes…

  291. Gloria • December 15, 2017 @ 8:14 PM

    Waking up Christmas morning to see what Santa put in my stocking. 🎅🏻🎄

  292. Robert Stubbs • December 15, 2017 @ 8:18 PM

    My best Christmas memory going for sleigh rides on a farm in country with my brothers and sisters. After that, we would go inside for hot chocolate and homemade treats.

  293. Ashley Mahe • December 15, 2017 @ 8:21 PM

    Watching my son on his first Christmas – he was 11 months old and everything was so exciting!

  294. Katerina Stecko • December 15, 2017 @ 8:34 PM

  298. Catherine Cole • December 15, 2017 @ 8:54 PM

    I would have to say Christmas 2013 when my daughter and her family came to my home for Christmas week bringing her in-laws. We lost our power due to an ice storm and it was off for 10 days. With our camping equipment we were able to cook up great meals and we spent hours just talking with each other.

  299. Pat Erskine • December 15, 2017 @ 8:56 PM

    a couple of years ago when I won the family white elephant gift extravaganza

  300. Tamara Mullen • December 15, 2017 @ 9:04 PM

    My fave holiday memory is the year my uncle filled a paper plate so full of turkey dinner, it collapsed on the way to the table, splatted all over the floor and our entire family including my uncle just laughed and laughed!

  301. Mary Puls • December 15, 2017 @ 9:30 PM

    My favorite Christmas memory is sharing Christmas with my whole family especially my Mom as it would be her last one. She got to see her grandchildren & children all together one last time & she was able to give some very special & treasured gifts that year.

  302. Cynthia Kennedy • December 15, 2017 @ 9:36 PM

    My best Christmas memory was early Christmas morning when I was 5 years old. I received a giant Ragedy Ann Doll & a chalk board – I just remember the sheer joy I felt walking into the living room and seeing those 2 items sitting by the tree with a letter written from Santa on the board.

  303. kim comber • December 15, 2017 @ 9:44 PM

    Every Christmas is the best Christmas because you make new memories every year.

  307. Laura Beierbach • December 15, 2017 @ 9:58 PM

    The cat with tinsel coming out of her butt.

  308. Erika sCHMIDT • December 15, 2017 @ 10:01 PM

  309. Susan J. • December 15, 2017 @ 10:02 PM

    Best Christmas as a child always involved having the Christmas lights put up outside by my father than turning them on.

  310. Betty ngu • December 15, 2017 @ 10:03 PM

    My fav memory was my daughters first christmas. She haf a huge fever but had energy to rip up all the gift wrap

  311. Julie Nicholls • December 15, 2017 @ 10:04 PM

    Christmas as a child was awesome, I remember my little sister being so excited every single year, she would wake me and my brother up and we would go downstairs to see if Santa came.

  312. Elaine Beierbach • December 15, 2017 @ 10:04 PM

    My son remarking that Santa always seemed to know what he wanted – before he even knew it himself!

  313. Amy Stackhouse • December 15, 2017 @ 10:04 PM

    My best Christmas memory was the year we adopted our two little boys. They were the first grandchildren so both sets of parents and some aunts and uncles came to home to see the kids on Christmas morning. Everyone was so excited that we finally had become a family that they went a little overboard. It was a Christmas full of love, laughter and chaos- the best Christmas ever!

  314. Janine Rutledge • December 15, 2017 @ 10:10 PM

    My best Christmas memory was when my sister and brother in law announced to the family that they were pregnant with twins. They gave us presents with the framed ultra sound inside with pictures of both babies! There wasn’t a dry eye at my grandma’s house that year.

  315. Rafika Charania • December 15, 2017 @ 10:18 PM

    Entering a hugh room filled with toys and spotting a metal red fire engin and knowing it was love at first sight. Not bad for a little girly girl princesse to fall fir a tonka like truck.

    It started my fasination with firemen and fire trucks…heros.

  316. Krista gould • December 15, 2017 @ 10:32 PM

    My favourite memory would be decorating the tree with lots of tinsel hanging our pantyhose up for santa to fill. The big oranges and apples in each of the legs awesome memories

  317. Dayle Long • December 15, 2017 @ 10:35 PM

    My grandmother making me a Christmas stocking when I was a little girl 60 years later it still gets hung

  318. Karin Dollery • December 15, 2017 @ 10:41 PM

    After Church on Christmas Eve we would walk our dog as a family around the neighbourhood and look at all the lights and decorations people had and just enjoying each other. I especially loved it whe it was snowing and ebverything looked fresh and majestic. I miss those days.

  319. agnes lopez • December 15, 2017 @ 10:44 PM

    Getting a Barbie Trunk when I was 8. I wanted it desperately and was sure it wasn’t going to be there Christmas morning. But it was.

  321. Linda Ham • December 15, 2017 @ 10:52 PM

    My best Christmas memory is being at home with my family in my pajamas with the Concert in Vienna on tv.

  322. Willard Ma • December 15, 2017 @ 10:53 PM

    My favourite memory was driving up with my sister to see my parents. Normally, this would be a four hour drive. However, on this night, there was a terrible blizzard and throughout the entire seven hour drive, we only saw six other vehicles – all going in the other direction. It was a horrible night to drive. I can’t remember what gifts we received or gave…it didn’t matter. My sister and I were so relieved to be home and with our parents, and I’m sure they were glad to see us too.

  323. Corry Lehmann • December 15, 2017 @ 11:00 PM

    My best Christmas memory was in 2009 when after many years of trying, my husband and I found out that we were expecting our son! Best Christmas present EVER!!!

  325. Nicole Lambert • December 15, 2017 @ 11:02 PM

    As a kid, I had the cool mom, who took out all the neighbourhood kids tobogganing after dark on Christmas eve and she brought along a gigantic thermos of hot chocolate which we drank while watching the northern lights dance in the sky!

  326. Surinder gurm • December 15, 2017 @ 11:07 PM

    The year my nephew was told he wasn’t getting Nintendo cause his dad was laid off. The priceless look on his face was amazing

  327. Marlene Unruh • December 15, 2017 @ 11:07 PM

    Christmas’s at my grandmothers farm, with all the aunts , uncles and cousins. Waiting for the cows to be milked and breakfast to be had before we could open gifts, fresh bread from the wood stove, but mostly family.

  328. Karen Teers Walker • December 15, 2017 @ 11:10 PM

    My favourite Christmas was spent in Jasper with my husband and 3 kids. It was fantastic just being able to focus on us as a family with no distractions.

  329. Dianne Gardner • December 15, 2017 @ 11:11 PM

    I have had many wonderful memories over the years. One of my favourite Christmas memories was my first grandson’s early arrival just before Christmas. While everyone opened gifts I held him and he was the best present ever. He will be 10 next week.

  330. ivy pluchinsky • December 15, 2017 @ 11:13 PM

  338. Debbie White Beattie • December 15, 2017 @ 11:41 PM

    My favorite Christmas was when I was 10 and had asked for a bunch of Barbie stuff but especially the camper and I got it. I remember thinking that I was so happy and the traditions that followed that day and every Christmas after is what’s the best too, like breakfast after opening presents and tobogganing in the afternoon if there was enough snow and finally having Christmas dinner with all of my extended family. We did these things every year when I was a kid.

  339. Nicole Catojo • December 15, 2017 @ 11:41 PM

    My best Christmas was when we had my son and we celebrated as a family for the first time.

  340. Deb Baker • December 15, 2017 @ 11:50 PM

    Our 9 year old granddaughter took a craft roll of paper and on it she wrote how much she loved her Papa and G (that’s what she calls me:) and listed all the things she loves about us….it was a long list and the first thing on it was she loved that we spent so much time together doing fun things….it made me cry it was so sweet and thoughtful….I have it hung in my bedroom to remind me how lucky I am!!

  341. Cindy Martin • December 15, 2017 @ 11:55 PM

    My best Christmas was the first year of my career. I was to join my family for Christmas a 5 hour drive away, but it was storming Christmas Eve and they closed the highways. I was so disappointed! I called the highway hotline every half hour all night, at 4:30 am I finally got the news I was waiting for, the roads were open. I called my sister’s let it ring once to let them know I was on my way, they cheered and went back to sleep!

  351. Rowena Aitken • December 16, 2017 @ 1:59 AM

    Having a bad year in junior high school (bullying teacher) my parents got me a kitten. Went and picked it up from the lady’s house on Christmas Day … she came around the corner with a little ginger kitten with a huge red bow tied around his neck. I had him for 17 years before he passed away. Called him Nicky after St. Nicholas.

  352. Shelley Butcher • December 16, 2017 @ 2:10 AM

  383. Debbie Zyla • December 16, 2017 @ 11:07 AM

    My best Christmas was receiving a Debbie doll when I was 5. She had a stewardess uniform and 2 other outfits. I played with her until I was 9. Gave her away to another girl named Debbie. Pass it on….

  384. Kim Leighton • December 16, 2017 @ 11:10 AM

    My best memory was the Christmas when I was four
    and my parents were really struggling to make ends meet. My sister and I really wanted a doll for Christmas and my parents didn’t know how they were going to manage to buy them for us. In the end various friends, family and neighbours bought for us and we ended up with four dolls and a plastic stroller each.

    My favourite Christmas memory is the last Christmas spent with my Dad (1966). Although he was very ill, the hospital let him come home for Christmas Day. He passed away the following June.

  396. Ann Young • December 16, 2017 @ 2:44 PM

    Best Christmas was, always with grannie and grampa

  397. Carolyn Hendra • December 16, 2017 @ 2:52 PM

    My favorite memory is me and my brother planning our Christmas morning gift opening mission. We had flashlights ready and all of our presents piled up in individual piles (except those from Santa, obviously)and ready to be ripped open. It was so exciting and we barely slept a wink. But we always had to wait for Mom & Dads OK before we could start. Yes, it was all about the presents back then, but that has changed now, just to be together with family is the greatest gift of all. Those are really the best memories.

    I have so many memorable Christmas’s but the ultimate one that was the ultimate one was when my husband surprised me with a ticket for he & I to go to Nashville. This was back in 2001 and neither of us had even been on a plane before. We had been married for 20 years at the time and had never been on a honeymoon. I guess it’s never too late 🙂

  436. Roxanne Brown • December 17, 2017 @ 12:59 PM

    One of my favorite Christmas days was when my Grampa built me a doll house and Gramma id all of the interior decorating and furniture for it.

    There wasn’t a dry eye in the house that day when they brought the doll house out.

    It took two people to carry that house around and my girlfriend and I would carry it all over my 2 story house, yard and over to her house as well when we played with it.

    I remember the wonder of waking up to a toy and candy filled red mesh stocking hung by my bed. I KNEW Santa had visited! Such a special way to wake-up, and the glow of the Xmas tree filling the house with such colours on those wonderful dark Xmas early mornings.

  444. Mike Lachapelle • December 18, 2017 @ 9:17 AM

    My best holiday memories were from when I was a kid and we traveled to Bondield every year to my Grandmothers for Christmas. It was only 1 hour away but all 8 of my aunt and uncles and their kids made the trip every year no matter what. There was probably about 30 of us together for the holidays and we all stayed and three or four different houses (family members). I miss those days when my grandparents were still around to enjoy the holidays with.

  445. kristen visser • December 18, 2017 @ 9:49 AM

    My brothers were together in a room and on Christmas eve, I would sleep on the floor between their beds. We would tell stories because we were too excited to sleep until we would eventually pass out. whoever woke up first, woke the other two up (it was usually so early of course) and we would all run into our parents room

  446. Robyn Lee • December 18, 2017 @ 3:44 PM

    My favorite memory is arriving late at Mom and Dads Christmas Eve and diving down under the tree and checking out names on presents and admiring the tree Mom had decorated ( yes, even as an adult

  447. Tammy P. • December 19, 2017 @ 9:57 AM

    My best Christmas when I was a kid, maybe 8. All I wanted was a Barbie Magic Vogayer car. I begged my parents for months. Thinking I wasn’t going to get it I gave up, but Christmas morning comes around and there’s a big box under the tree. Guess what that was! 😁

  448. Alayne Langford • December 19, 2017 @ 11:26 AM

    The last Christmas that I spent with my Dad, who months later passed away, and my 5 children, there was a beautiful snow fall on Christmas Eve with big fluffy snowflakes that left a carpet of snow come Christmas day. It was magical.

  449. Stephanie LaPlante • December 19, 2017 @ 12:20 PM

  454. Lori Olson • December 20, 2017 @ 6:24 AM

    Ahh yes,….the finding of the perfect Christmas tree. I will no doubt remember that to the end..lol. Me and my 11 and 13 yr younger brothers lived with our Mom on a farm 32 miles out of a small town in upper BC. It was the early 70’s and the night was so cold we could hear pitch in the trees snapping a mile away…so cold out! We always had at least 3-4′ of snow from Nov-May… lonnnng time ago..lol. Our neighbor George used to come down to play cards and visit every couple of days and when he realized we had not gotten a Christmas tree that year (truck was not running) he told me to get in his very old truck and we would go get one right away… We were in such a hurry that I forgot to bring gloves. We had a sharp axe to chop it down and that was it. Of course I had on a thin jacket, expecting to warm myself by the heater vents. Well, a window was out and he had put up a covering of plastic to keep the wind out and he had to run the window defogger with COLD AIR ONLY constantly.. the heater was broken.. We went about 10 miles from home and found a gorgeously PERFECT tree, put it in the back of the pick-up and drove home. I kept checking on how it was doing and our friend George laughed and mocked me for doing it.. said we were on a hill so no way it was bound to jump out.. Wrong!!! We got to the bottom of the hill and when I turned to check the tree, it was to discover it had indeed bounced out ON THE HILL and because it was sooo cold and frosty, it had sheared off 1/2 of the tree neat as you please.. Of course we had to get another one and we froze on the way home..lol.. but what a memory!! hee hee hee

  455. ERIC TAN • December 20, 2017 @ 7:14 AM

    Best memory ever was seeing my father after he has been away working overseas. Mom told us to stay at home and not going out and Surprised….dad came home for Christmas.

  456. Catherine Kelly-Brown • December 7, 2018 @ 11:21 AM

    Nicest Christmas holiday memory is the year before my youngest brother relocated to Japan. Was great having the entire family together on the day.
