Hi everyone, I wanted to bring a bit of the spirit of christmas to this forum. Although most of us are lonely at this time of year, we should realize that we are not lonely in this world. So in keeping with this thought I wanted to start something... Lets see how far this can go around the US and beyond. When responding to this forum put what state you live in. City if you feel so bold.. What is your favorite christmas story or your favorite christmas song... Then sit back with a glass of eggnog or apple cider and read, viualize, sing a tune and smile and know that someone out there does love you for who you are... I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season.. Im glad to have met some wonderful people on this site...
Okay, I will start... Im in Miami, Florida... My favorite christmas memory was when I was a child and we were coming home from midnight mass when my mother looked up in the sky and said look there goes santa.. I honestly saw a sleigh and reindeer over the moon.. or was it my imagination... My favorite christmas carol is Winter wonderland.... I look forward to sitting here and reading all the responses.. Big hugs to you all and please keep a smile on your faces... You are all such beautiful people.. bye for now
My favorite part of Christmas is observing my nephew. He's been so excited writing his letter to Santa, decorating his Christmas tree, helping his mom and I bake Christmas cookies, watching the Christmas specials on tv. It's almost like re-living the holidays over again, through his eyes...where everything is fun and nothing bad ever happens. The innocence of youth is a wonderful thing.
Happy holidays to all from Laura in Baltimore, Maryland, USA!

When my brother was very young, he saw a red light flying through the sky on Christmas Eve, and was convinced it was Rudolph. Our youngest sister is alot younger than all of us, and when she was about 3, he said something like "wouldn't it be cool for her if she could see something like that?" Well, us older kids decided not to leave fate to chance, and were going to arrange it for her. I was home visiting from University, and my little sister had asked that I put her to bed. So, while I was reading her a story, and getting her all tucked in, my brother and older sister found an old string of red Christmas lights, snuck outside, and started jumping around with it, while my brother said "Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas" (he has a very deep voice). Well, I thought my poor little sister was going to vibrate off the bed, she got so excited. At once I was told to get the adults stil up to "Go to bed, cuz Santa won't come in if people are awake".
We didn;t realize just how well it worked, till the following year, when she asked if I would put her to bed again "because when you did last year, I heard Santa".
We realized we couldn;t let her down, and my brother decided to do something different. That year, he climbed on the roof, and stomped around on it, ringing a dinner bell while saying Santa's favorite phrase.
Those are my two favorite Christmas memories.....being able to be even a small part of making Christmas amazing for my little sister.
