    My all time Favorite Holiday memory is having my great grandmother come down for Thanksgiving..the entire family was down. It’s hard to get her down to Texas since she’s up North. She doesn’t like to travel and she’s won’t fly.

    Jumped on over here from CottonWife’s blog.

    One of my favorite Christmas memories would have to be last years. We had soooo much fun just hanging out with each other. Just us. 2008 was a difficult year. We ended the year “reconnected” as a family. It was (is) awesome!

    I suppose this is a silly memory, but last year I made a healthy pumpkin pie, and usually when I make healthy stuff it’s OK, but not people’s favorite. This pie, on the other hand, everyone loved beyond belief and it made me feel good to serve something they loved and I loved giving them

    My favorite holiday memory is from when I was 11 – we had a family reunion down in Florida for Christmas. It was the only time that pretty much everyone from my mom’s side of the family was in one place at one time. It was so much fun and so amazing to spend time with family members that I very very rarely get to see.

    My favorite memory was last year, when my sister-in-law and I got to “take over” our family’s Thanksgiving meal! We had a blast, and the rest of the family got to take a break.

    A lot of my favorite holiday memories stem from playing during the Christmas Eve services growing up (very serious flute player). :)

    Wow cool giveaway Jessica….how sweet it is…and I need a new one cause I sold my big one when we downsized! My favorite holiday memory is when I bought everyone flannel pjs one year in my family and my sisters family and sewed some drawstring bags for them in xmas fabric…everyone opened them on xmas eve and we put our pj’s on and played games all night till the wee hours. Of course we are all grown up and older so no little ones waiting for Santa…so we started a new tradition. THEN I made everyone go to the mall the next day and bring their pj’s and we took a family photo at “Picture People”…the kids still complain because I made them wear their pj’s at the mall…of course they are kiddin’ because it’s still talked about so I know they really like the idea.

    My favorite holiday memory is when my family and I spent it in Quebec on Thanksgiving! We were going to make a turkey in the small hotel room but the oven didnt work! Instead we went to a fancy thai restaurant and had a rediculously delicious meal–5 courses!
    I would LOVE To win!

    My favorite seasonal memory would be any Thanksgiving when my Nana was still alive and “with” us. She MADE Thanksgiving & Christmas for us with the scents of the season and no matter how long I live, I’ll ALWAYS associate these holidays with her, her love of food and of feeding us her traditional recipes. I miss her terribly.

    My favorite holiday memory would be when I was around 11 or 12 and my entire family – both my dad’s side and my mom’s side – got together for Thanksgiving. There were well over 60 of us there, and things got pretty crazy, but it was fabulous to have everyone together at one place and time. Fifteen years later, I live in New Jersey, and my family is still in Maine, so I don’t get to visit with them the way I used to. I remember that Thanksgiving like it was yesterday, and wish every year we could re-live it.

    Great giveaway!
    My favorite holiday memory didn’t actually occur on the actual holiday, but the week before Thanksgiving. When I was in grad school, a few of my friends could not go home for the holidays. I also had one classmate who had never celebrated a traditional Thanksgiving meal because he was Vietnamese. So, one night, a few of my girlfriends and I planned what we dubbed “Grad School Thanksgiving” and concocted a funny email message to the entire class instructing them on what food they were responsible for bringing to the feast. There was turkey, stuffing, mac ‘n’ cheese, cornbread, fried chicken, pie, cake, green bean casserole and a whole host of other foods. We all sat around an on-campus apartment eating the food, blasting music and enjoying our friend Vu’s reaction to traditional Thanksgiving food (he was a fan). There may have been a soccer game outside at one point too. It was probably the best “holiday” I ever had, and I wish I could have Thanksgiving with that same group of people every year.

    Cookie Sunday!! My mom’s side of the family goes to my grandparent’s house the Sunday before Christmas. Grandma makes almost 20 dozen cut-out cookies (gingerbread and sugar) and we decorate them using homemade icing. All of my mom’s 6 siblings bring their holiday cookies and we exchange them. Some of my cousins and I make a gingerbread house and the day ends with take-out pizza and everyone taking home containers full of dozens of cookies. It is my favorite day of the whole year!

    My best holiday memory is the year we all piled into the car and went to JcPenney’s to get our Christmas PJ’s. Every Christmas my mom buys us Christmas PJ’s and this one particular year she decided we didn’t really care so she wasn’t going to buy them. We were so upset that we all piled into the car Christmas Eve and went to get our PJs. We had such a good time shopping together.

    Liz — November 10, 2009 @ 11:58 pm

    The Christmas I think about the most was the one that I last spent with my parents in 2002. Three months later they both died in an accident. They had just built their dream retirement home and I pushed to have a traditional family Christmas there that year. Of course now I am sooo glad I was so persistent! I am very grateful that I was given this time with them not knowing what the future was going to bring. We did it all…Christmas tree, cookies, turkey dinner..it’s a treasured memory of a time I will have forever :-)

    I would love love love a food processor.. my favorite holiday memory involves my dad finally surprising my mom.. every year my mom seems to always find out or correctly guess what my dad’s present for her.. one year he wrapped an odd shaped box with some miscellaneous junk in it and a note with rhyming clues on how to find her real gift… the clues were read outloud and we all tried to help mom figure out the answer.. there were 4-5 clues and all were so creative.. and led my mom with all the kids trailing throughout the house ending in the basement following a string into a closet where a beautiful new coat hung… the joy on my mom’s face is a memory I’ll have forever… it was a great Christmas and a wonderful lesson on thoughtfulness.

    My favorite memory is from Thanksgiving when I was really young and my family invited over a group of autistic adults for dinner with us. It was the craziest, best thanksgiving Ive ever had

    Nice giveaway!
    My fav holiday moment was when I was a kid and my mom got these adorable gingerbread (plastic waxey) ornaments from avon. My sister and I thought they smelled SO yummy we decided if they smelled so good just think of what they’d taste like! We put it in our mouth but it wasn’t like food we soon figured out. My mom had those ornaments on our tree for several years (with little teeth marks on them).

    My favorite holiday memory is my grandmother standing my her stove, frying up chicken one piece at a time. We never really do the turkey thing…our family is too small.

    Kelly Mulroy — November 11, 2009 @ 9:13 am

    My favorite memories of the Holidays are my family all lined up in the kitchen at the stove waiting in line for my Dads Golumpkis ( spelling may be off on that one ) Stuffed Cabbage. The whole cooking process tooks hours and hours but the eating seemed like it went in minutes. You actually had to hide them in the fridge it you wanted an extra one or two for later
    I can still smell them and see my Dads face – how proud he was that everyone loved them so much

    Betsy — November 11, 2009 @ 9:32 am

    My favorite memories of the holidays are sitting at the dining room table after the meal has been eaten with my entire family for hours drinking wine and talking about old memories. Living such a long way from home is hard, but those times during the holidays are centering and are so important to me!

    Nicole — November 11, 2009 @ 9:33 am

    WOW! What a giveaway!

    My favorite holiday memory is kind of a long-standing one. More ritual, than anything. Every year we play a simple dice game and the first year my husband came to Christmas at my family’s he won the dice game and the $600 pot. I’ve been trying to win the pot since age 2 and it just took him one roll, it was great! Hope I’m as lucky and win that food processor!

    AWESOME giveaway! Thank you!

    My favorite memory would have to be waking up at my grandparents’ house when I about about 7 and feeling a huge wave of relief when I saw that Santa had found me, even though we were away from home. I loved getting to spend that day with relatives that I didn’t get to see often and it’s still one of my favorite Christmases.

    Alecia — November 11, 2009 @ 9:37 am

    I loved having a baking “day” with my grandmother and mom. We always take a day and bake our holiday favorites for our families and friends. Today, my Mom and I still take a day to bake during the holiday season and now we are involving my son. But all he seems to do is eat the results!!!

    My first post! I love reading your site.
    My favorite memory is of a Christmas when I was a senior in High School. I was Student Council President and had this lovely idea to do a HUGE toy drive at my high school. It was wildly popular, but being the brilliant 17 y. o. I forgot to organize WHO would receive the toys. Luckily my father is a Superintendent at a local district and he quickly got a list of names from teachers of needy families. So in the school van (we had that many toys) my father and I hand delivered toys to about 20 families. I have never seen such happy faces as kids seeing MY DAD bringing them toys. They were so shocked he was at their house giving them things. This was one of the few times I ever did anything with just my dad- he was always busy with work and I usually got toted around by my mom. SO for me, getting to see my dad as the hero was the coolest feeling.

    My favorite holiday memory was from last year! I got to cook with my family, had the day off and just relaxed and enjoyed their company! We also rented movies, cooked together and slept in on the weekend. No crazy shopping; We stayed at my place the entire weekend. It may seem like a simple thing but in this rush-rush world it was just great!
