    My earliest Christmas memory is opening a present at a family friends place. It was a Barbie that came with a skating rink and when you attached her skate to the rink she twirled around. It was magical!

    Quand je suis allé visité mes parents en Floride avec ma famille.

  3. Marla • December 22, 2014 @ 9:28 AM

    My earliest Christmas memory is being about 5 and worrying because we were not going t be home for Christmas Eve and I thought Santa would not come. We were out really late and my parents brought us home sleeping so when I woke up I was convinced Santa missed us – when I went down to check our chriatmas tree there were no gifts … I was so sad. But when my mom called from our living room – it was filled if gifts infront of the fireplace – guess Santa was to tired to walk over to our tree. LOL

  4. Linda • December 22, 2014 @ 9:28 AM

    My first Christmas memory is going to midnight mass and then coming home and having a big turkey dinner at about 1:30 a.m. – Great memory!

  5. Trish • December 22, 2014 @ 9:30 AM

    I remember waking in the night to sounds of bells. Christmas magic, I guess. 🙂

  6. stacey dempsey • December 22, 2014 @ 9:30 AM

    My first Christmas memory was getting my picture taken with Santa and I was not to happy about it, but there was a pancake breakfast at the mall so I did it to get the pancakes lol

  7. Elizabeth Nicholson • December 22, 2014 @ 9:30 AM

    My funny memory is the Christmas my brother in law came in as we were eating dinner. He filled up a plate and ended up putting plum pudding sause on his potatoes ibstead of gravy.

  11. Marni Sutherland • December 22, 2014 @ 9:34 AM

    1972, I was an only child and I always wanted a sibling/ sister. My parents adopted a sister for me, she came to us at the age of 6- an instant playmate for me!!

  12. Kwasi Chan • December 22, 2014 @ 9:36 AM

    My earliest Christmas memory was my first time in Vancouver at my aunt’s house. I was probably 9 years old. My parents and I were visiting from Africa and it was also my earliest encounter with snow. We didn’t celebrate Christmas in Africa.

  13. Linda Bleskie • December 22, 2014 @ 9:36 AM

    Best memory is my 5th Christmas getting the move beautiful doll ever! She had blond hair and was wearing a lovely satin/velvet dress, white socks and black shoes, I had her for many years to come and actually dont think I ever got another doll after her!

  14. Jillian • December 22, 2014 @ 9:36 AM

    My earliest Christmas memory has to be when my grandparents would come down for the holidays and stay with us for a couple weeks. That always made Christmas more special!

  15. Mary Ann Dudragne • December 22, 2014 @ 9:37 AM

    My earliest Christmas memory is when I was maybe 4 yo, on the farm… putting out milk and cookies for Santa before we headed to my Grandparents’ an hour or so away — just in case Santa stopped in before we got home (usually around 2:30 or 3:00AM because we also went to Midnight Mass in my Grandparents’ town.)

  16. Linda Benoit • December 22, 2014 @ 9:38 AM

    My earliest memory is when I was about 5 or 6 getting a baby doll and a doll carriage. I still have that doll to this day & I am 57yrs old.

  17. Marlene • December 22, 2014 @ 9:38 AM

    Mine has always been when my parents open their presents they look like little kids so happy & excited.

  18. Lindsey • December 22, 2014 @ 9:38 AM

    I remember getting a letter from Santa and I thought it was so magical. He wrote how good my brother and I had been that year. It literally made my Christmas.

  19. Treen Goodwin • December 22, 2014 @ 9:39 AM

    My Christmas memory was having my whole Family together at Christmas , my Brother Mom and Dad , now its not like that , Since my Brother died and my Mom and Dad split up … some times i wish i could turn back time 🙂

  20. Janice Cournoyer • December 22, 2014 @ 9:40 AM

    My earliest memory is of sitting on Santa’s kee asking for a horse.

  21. Penny G • December 22, 2014 @ 9:42 AM

    Having Santa visit us even though we didn’t celebrate Christmas.

  22. Joanne Thompson • December 22, 2014 @ 9:42 AM

    My earliest memory is about maybe 4 years old and being terrified by being put on Santa’s knee for a photo!! I remember seeing the picture at my Mom’s house – me in tears and my sister smiling!!

  23. Jill Moore • December 22, 2014 @ 9:44 AM

    we lived in an apartment when I grew up so looking out the window from way up high and the snow covered ground and trees. It was actually quite beautiful

  24. Sharlene • December 22, 2014 @ 9:45 AM

    I remember a Santa Claus visiting our apartment when I was little.

  25. Chad W • December 22, 2014 @ 9:46 AM

    The year I got a bike for Christmas

  26. Chris H. • December 22, 2014 @ 9:46 AM

    Earliest Christmas memory was sneaking out of my room Christmas eve night and seeing that dad had left a bottle of beer for Santa, no milk and cookies.

  27. Sam • December 22, 2014 @ 9:47 AM

    Every Christmas as a child was spent at my Grandmother’s cottage. There was a fold out sofa in the living room, and I insisted that I was going to sleep beside the fire place (which was actually a real wood burning, chimney bearing fireplace), on that fold out sofa and wait for Santa. Well, I woke up that morning in the “bunk-bed room”, and came out at about 6 A.M. before any one else was awake to the fire burning low, the sun barely rising over the snow covered lake, and stockings stuffed full. It was a magical memory, and thinking back to it, a little part of me still believes that Santa came that night.

  28. Lisa Mihalovics • December 22, 2014 @ 9:47 AM

    My parents got us an organ and could not explain how it fit in Santa’s sleigh.

  29. Debbie S • December 22, 2014 @ 9:48 AM

    My favorite memory is 1997 and we went out to get a Christmas tree and after 4 hours my daughter(5 at the time)found the perfect tree.Got it into the back of the truck and headed home. A semi went by and sucked the tree out of the back of the truck.So after many tears I went to Canadian Tire and bought one of their fresh trees.We got it in the house,I started supper and told her we’ll do the tree after supper.Well of course she was too excited and decided to cut the cord on the tree and it threw her across the living room,with her brother standing over her laughing.She reminds all of us every year of the Crazy Christmas Tree!!!Merry Christmas!!!!

  30. Pearl Saban • December 22, 2014 @ 9:48 AM

    Family get together…spinning of dreidels…getting chocolate coins to eat…getting a silver dollar to keep.

  31. Jeannine Mir • December 22, 2014 @ 9:49 AM

    my earliest Christmas memory is waking up Christmas morn (as a kid) and finding my two cats in the Christmas tree and discovering that Santa had eaten the cookies and drank the milk I had left for him!

  32. Brad Cook • December 22, 2014 @ 9:49 AM

    Watching the Red Skelton Christmas special on TV

  33. Cindy • December 22, 2014 @ 9:51 AM

    One of my earliest Christmas memories is: waking up early Christmas morning and peeking at the stuff Santa brought before going back to bed to await the time Mom and Dad had set to get up! Another memory is: my best friend and her sister opening a present while their parents were away, playing it for an hour or so (it was a Simon game) and then re-wrapping it and placing it back under the tree. And another one…we had gone to my Grandma’s house for Christmas (which was a few hours away). We had left our kitties at home overnight, and when we came home, there was a letter to my brother and I from Santa in their pet bed with them!! Santa had come to our house even though we had been away!

  34. Susan Hanley • December 22, 2014 @ 9:53 AM

    I remember, as a kid, crowding on the bottom stair with my siblings to sneak a peek at the Christmas tree on Christmas morning before Mom and Dad got up.

  35. christine • December 22, 2014 @ 9:57 AM

    My earliest memory is my mom letting us open a gift Christmas eve…it was always new P.J.”s and a little treat. Waking up to open out gifts and pancakes and sausage for breakfast before my grandma came over to see what got…I continue this tradition now with my children! Merry Christmas!

  36. Donna Doyle • December 22, 2014 @ 9:58 AM

    My earliest memory is finding a stocking with an orange and a twily type candy in it. I thought it was awesome. So simple but made me happy.

  37. Julia Grant • December 22, 2014 @ 9:58 AM

    My earliest holiday memory would be bringing my brother home from the hospital after he was born. It was a very frenetic holiday.

  42. Paula-Marie K • December 22, 2014 @ 10:08 AM

    My favourite memories are not about the presents, it’s about the fun we always had with my whole family! Cousins, Uncles, Aunts and family friends!! Sledding, snowmobiling, skiing, skating, snowball fights, board games, everything!! Fun times!

    Going to my great grandparents house with the extended family. That was a lot of people squished in there!

  46. Barbara Edwards • December 22, 2014 @ 10:14 AM

    I used to love when my parents would turn off all the lights in the house, and we would sit and watch the icicles on the Christmas tree glow in the dark. It seemed so magical for me and I would let my imagination run wild.

  47. Doris Calvert • December 22, 2014 @ 10:16 AM

    My best memory is spending every Christmas with my grandparents, I was the apple oftheir eye and I loved them more than life!

  48. Gary Smith • December 22, 2014 @ 10:17 AM

  49. James • December 22, 2014 @ 10:17 AM

    I remember coming down the stairs as a kid and being amazed at Santa’s delivery, plus he ate his cookies and fed his reindeer carrots too!

  50. Cheryl • December 22, 2014 @ 10:17 AM

    Watching my parents wrap our Christmas presents from a hidden location, with my brother.

  51. Penny Coleman • December 22, 2014 @ 10:18 AM

    my earliest memory of Christmas is my little brother and I sleeping over at my grandparents (they watched us a lot as my mom was quite a young parent) and eating warm cookies that my Oma just made then putting some out for santa and a carrot for Rudolph then hiding behind the couch hoping we would catch them and falling asleep there behind the couch

  52. Dana F • December 22, 2014 @ 10:19 AM

  53. Janet • December 22, 2014 @ 10:19 AM

    My earliest memory is getting the doll I wanted that walked when you held her hands and came with a tricycle and a ride on horse. That was Christmas morning, and by the afternoon my brother had given it a blue bic pen moustache that never came off.

  54. Lynda • December 22, 2014 @ 10:19 AM

    I woke up very late Christmas Eve or very early Christmas morning to Santa Claus Kissing me on the cheek. I opened my eyes and couldn’t believe what I saw. My mom told me years later that it was my friend’s next door Grandpa dressed as Santa. He looked like Santa even when he wasn’t dressed as Santa. What A beautiful memory! I share it every Christmas with my three children and their spouses and my sixteen grandchildren.

  55. Kathy • December 22, 2014 @ 10:19 AM

    My earliest Christmas Memory is making peanut butter cookies with my Mom and getting a phone call from Santa.

  57. Lisa H • December 22, 2014 @ 10:21 AM

    I was age 4/5 and I remember opening a gift and thinking I got a box of Froot Loops but really my parents had hidden a Barbie in it – disappointed!!

  58. bina edwards • December 22, 2014 @ 10:22 AM

    my earilest would be all of us around a tree on Christmas eve, getting to open one present, mine was always a barbie it seemed

  59. Michael • December 22, 2014 @ 10:22 AM

    Snow. So much snow that we couldn’t open the door and had to stay inside for two days.

  60. Alisa Petrisch • December 22, 2014 @ 10:23 AM

    My earliest Christmas memory is going for a walk on Christmas Eve with my Dad and my sister late at night and the snowing was falling. I was 5 then and I would open my mouth and look into the sky and have the snow land on my tongue. We walked all over the neighbourhood, when we came home there were magically presents under the tree that my Mom put out while we were gone. I never put the two together, I still thought Santa had arrived. We opened them at 12 midnight, (my parents are European) and I got to go to sleep with the new dolly I received. We had that tradition for years and it has stayed in my heart forever.

  61. Sunshine G • December 22, 2014 @ 10:24 AM

    I remember the stained glass windows all lit up for Christmas Eve mass, which is odd since I haven’t been there since I was about 4.

    My earliest memory is from age 2 or 3 and it is just a moment of me with a glass ball ornament in my mouth and bleeding while my parents frantically tried to get it out. I had stuffed it in my mouth and a visit to the hospital was required.

  64. Gloria W • December 22, 2014 @ 10:25 AM

    My earliest Christmas memory was when I was around 3 years old, I remember us having a small Christmas tree that was on top of the dining room table. I remember on Christmas morning waking up to the whole dining room table full will gifts.

  160. Jacqueline Adams • December 22, 2014 @ 12:41 PM

    One of my Christmas memories includes the year without presents. My parents decided that they would teach us a lesson because we’d been snooping around to uncover presents. They found out about this and surprised us Christmas morning with not one present under the tree. Having no presents was no treat. So my sister and I ate our breakfast and went outside to play in the snow. All I could think about was how all the other children were opening their presents and I would have nothing. It was truly a sad morning. When we came inside from playing, the tree to our surprise the tree now had presents….After all these years I still remember what it’s like to wake up with nothing waiting for you under the tree. I always try to make sure that I remember those who are living this experience and there will be nothing waiting for them under the tree.

  161. Elizabeth Matthiesen • December 22, 2014 @ 12:43 PM

    probably my earliest memory is of my parents telling us (my twin sister and I) that my brother sneaked out of bed one Christmas Eve to see Santa and was caught by my mother – that was why Santa didn’t leave him any presents that year. My brother stood there too, straight faced, looking sad & nodding. All a big con of course but we believed it all. 🙂

We couldn’t open presents till he got up. One by one we’d go and look at all the presents under the tree trying to find our names. Then we’d try and guess what was in each one.

  246. Sherrie F. • December 22, 2014 @ 4:52 PM

Santa was ruined for life. 🙁

  339. Aliya Daya • December 22, 2014 @ 10:41 PM

    I used to live in Southern Europe as a young child… I have these memories of walking down cobbled streets, holding my mother or father’s hand, all bundled up against the cold; my breath puffing out and frosting around me. The old buildings were draped in garlands and lights and everything seemed so magical. I could hear music being played all around me. And there would street vendors on every corner, roasting chestnuts in their mobile roasters. The sounds of them spinning the roasting wheel, while they sang out their wares; the smell permeating the streets. And my parent would always buy me a $0.50 package, wrapped in a newspaper cone, steam coming off the brown, little nuggets of deliciousness. That is one of my earliest memories and when I think about it… It invokes feelings of safety, security, wonder and the magic of the season.

  351. Diane • December 23, 2014 @ 12:01 AM

    One of my earliest memories was watching my great grandmother set up a little Christmas tree in her bedroom. We always had a big tree in our living room but my great grandmother had her special little tree in her bedroom. She passed away when she was 96, I was 12. I was given her little tree when she passed away. That was 36 years ago. Every year I would set it up but now it is so fragile, the needles are falling off. I still have it in the original box packed safely away. Merry Christmas everyone.

  352. Cassy • December 23, 2014 @ 12:37 AM

  353. Lori R • December 23, 2014 @ 12:46 AM

  354. Travelbuds • December 23, 2014 @ 2:56 AM

I still have the doll she will be 53 this year.

We always had, and still have, a huge number of family members for Christmas Dinner, we used to use our Ping Pong table as the dinner table, everyone would grab a chair and gather around the Ping Pong table to eat, it was decorated so beautifully. Then, after dinner and clean up, we’d put the “Shuffle Curl” game on the Ping Pong table and have a family tournament til all hours of the night 🙂
