When I was little, I loved Christmas so much! As many of you know, I grew up in Norway, and it was pitch-dark at 3pm on Christmas Eve. We usually had a lot of snow, so the Christmas lights as well as the moon and the stars would reflect off the snow and make everything look like a faerie-land.
One of the things I loved about Christmas, of course, was the presents… But I was also lucky enough that Santa Claus actually showed up at our door most years, and it was such an amazing feeling to open the door to Santa with his bag of presents… And he had presents for everybody in the house, even my grandparents!
When I think back on those moments, I’m filled with happiness and warmth, because now, I know that the men in my family (uncles, my dad, my grandpa…) always made sure Christmas became even more special to me. And that love and eagerness to make each other happy is what I want to share for the Christmas season! I would like my kids to have that warm, happy feeling when they think back to the Christmases of their childhood. And I would love it if they had a little anecdote like this one to share with their friends. And this year for Christmas, all I really want is a kindle voyager.

So after my little story,Β I was wondering about something. Share one of your best childhood Christmas memories, and what is it you enjoy the most about the holidays? I think for me, it’s the fact that things seem to slow down once school is out for Christmas, and we have the opportunity to spend time together as a family, play board-games, watch Christmas movies and just relax, eat good food and share the love.

Good luck in the Christmas Giveaway, I hope your holiday preparations are well under way, and that you’re able to enjoy the season.

    • YAY! I’m glad one of us is in the Christmas spirit today, then, Brandee. When I wrote this down, I felt very much in the Christmas spirit, but now that I’m back to being busy with the last two weeks of classes, it’s kind of fled…
      Have a fantastic Monday, my dear! *BIG HUGS*

  1. I love that Santa came to your door. I still remember having chicken pox and not being able to go see Santa, and he came to visit me at home. When he left I peeked as he left, and really couldn’t understand why he was driving our neighbors car!I was 5 years old.

    • Creating memories is always fun, Berls, and I’m sure you are making some very good ones! Putting up the tree is nice, and so is baking Christmas cookies, because everyone who wants to can participate!

  2. That’s such a wonderful memory Lexie! It sounds like just the sort of Christmas everyone should have! I don’t really have stand out Christmas memories from when I was a child, not in a bad way, just that they were all pretty good (except for the one where I got a stomach bug and spent Christmas Eve sick so couldn’t eat Christmas dinner) but I think my favourite Christmas memory was last year when me, my parents and my then 5 year old brother were around the tree and he insisted that everyone else got their presents before him, it was such a sweet thing for him to do! Especially as a young child at Christmas!

    • That’s actually really nice, though, Laura! All your Christmases were amazing πŸ™‚ Your little brother sure is a sweetie! It’s so cute that he wanted everyone else to get their presents first!
      Have a fantastic week πŸ™‚

  3. What a fun giveaway!
    Christmas at our house always was about “gezelligheid”, being together and having fun. I loved christmas as a kid, now I am grown up a little less as the magic seems gone a bit. We usually celebrated one day with the whole family (which isn’t that big) and did “surprises” (basically you hide your present in some sort of package or construction you made yourself), the dinner was always elaborate as well. Then we usually had a day with just my mom, my sister and I and we got presents. I usually enjoyed those days the most as it was fun and quiet and we often played games and had a quiet and fun day.

    Before the actual christmas days we sometimes took a detour with the car and my mom would drive through streest lit with christmas lights, it’s always wonderfull seeing all those lights.

    Just like you I always enjoyed the christmas period meant slowing down and having fun and a break from school.

    • I think it helps me to have children to try to continue some of the traditions I enjoyed when I was a child myself. There is no Santa coming to our house, but other things we do as well. And I think spending time together and just enjoying that is the best.

      Have a terrific week, Lola.
