Aloha Friday!

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought on Fridays I would take it easy on posting too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

the whole Christmas holiday was a very special memory as a child - decorating the house with my grandmother, making cookies, opening presents Christmas morning - as a child, it was truly magical.

I always remember the delicious food that my mom cooked.

I've always just loved Christmas, and I think my mother passed on her love of the holidays to us kids. =)

We are Jewish. I do remember going over to my friends house across the street after she and her family opened their presents. I would see what she received and have cookies with her. I loved watching her Christmas tree as well.

When we were old enough my older sister organized the 4 of us to buy our parents something that we always thought was amazing ie, shiny!, but my parents always loved everything! Now I get to do the same thing & I totally understand how mom & dad felt! It's great!!

We would always go to a huge kid-oriented Christmas Eve service at the church a block from my grandma's house, then my mom's whole family (nine kids and all their respective families!) would crowd into my grandma's house for food, fun, and presents! It's been a long time since we had a Christmas Eve at my grandma's.

I remember one Christmas my sister and I booby-trapped the fireplace to "catch" Santa in the act. We had put out little toy cars, marbles, tied string across the fireplace, put up bells, etc. We even slept at the foot of the fireplace in sleeping bags, between the fireplace and the tree. When we saw gifts under the tree the next day we were shocked! Never tried to catch him again.

Now, we love Midnight Mass and having a candlelight dinner on Christmas Eve.

I really just remember how the Christmas tree looked on Christmas morning all fully lit and bedecked with Christmas presents underneath.
