    Oh, this is fun! Love the Storybook Christmas line!

    My favorite Christmas memory was the year I got a Barbie airplane. The shape of the package was so odd I couldn’t figure it out for anything. My dad kept teasing me saying if I told him what was in his presents he would tell me what it was. I knew though, that if he told me, all the presents would be taken back. It was fun, though, teasing back and forth with him!

  2. A favorite holiday memory was me and my dad putting the train tracks down under Our silver Christmas tree. After that was done we would sprinkle fake snow and create the village.

  3. Lori says:

    I didn’t see my cousins very often so I always looked forward to Christmas eve at my grandma and grandpa’s house for the big family dinner and playing lots of games with my cousins.

  4. Michele Fetter says:

    My favorite Christmas was when we were children my brother got a bike for Christmas. He was about 6 and his face lit up from such a big surprise.

  5. H.G. Miramontrz says:

    Our Christmas times were much simpler than modern times. We were very happy with a baby doll, tea sets, colouring books; and an orange in the toe of your sock made us happy.

  6. Lori says:

    Playing games with my cousins at the big family Christmas dinner on Christmas eve at our grandparents house. I didn’t get to see my cousins often so it was a real treat.

  7. Cecilia says:

    These are great collections! My favorite memory is the year Santa brought our kids a trampoline, we had to put it together in the garage. Boy were they excited Christmas morning when they found it.

  8. amy says:

    My favorite memory was receiving an ice skating skirt from my aunt! It was such a special gift in a family that mostly gave practical things.

  9. Lee says:

    One of my favorite Christmas memories was when all 8 of us kids got new bikes for the holiday!! that was really a surprise!!

  10. Kathleen says:

    Oh it would have to be my mother’s enclosed patio during the cold Christmas season. Back in the day, she would make SO MANY different types of cookies and store them either in big glass jars, or big tins. We could raid them whenever we wanted. The glass jars were no challenge, but you never knew what you were going to uncover from the tins because nothing was labeled. Didn’t matter though because they were all good!!! Fun times.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  11. Chris says:

    Christmas for me as a child always meant baking lots of cookies and making candy. No one does that now a days so I miss that.

  12. Kathy E. says:

    One of my favorite holiday memories is the year my son was born. He was only 2 months old at Christmas time. He was a very colicky baby and broke me into motherhood with a huge whallop! One thing that quieted him down was setting him under the lit Christmas tree in a dark room. He would lay there and just stare up at the lights like he was hypnotized! It was a welcome time each night for us as new parents to have that little break and just purely enjoy our baby.

  13. I used to love going to my dad’s Christmas work party where they gave out baskets of apples, oranges and a toy. To this day, the smell of oranges brings me back to that Christmas gathering in the gym of a local high school.

  14. Whiskers says:

    It was probably the Christmas of 1962, at least I was a sophomore in HS, and was taking typing and needed to typewrite my school papers. I received a baby blue Remington QuietWriter. There are even pictures with my shining “red eyes” in my delighted face. I don’t know where it went. Someone will probably find it in a thrift store somewhere.

  15. Judy Forkner says:

    My favorite Christmas memory is the 1st Christmas my husband & I celebrated together. We bought 2 Christmas ornaments & hung them on a little “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree that barely fit in our apartment.

  16. Janet Parde says:

    My favorite holiday memory involves traveling to my grandparents homes, simple Christmases and lots of family!

  17. My favorite Christmas memory is when I was 8 I received a tea set which had more than 50 pieces. I loved that set. Thank you for bringing back the traditional reds and greens.

  18. EllenB says:

    My sister and I were on our best behavior at the holidays because Mom had always told us about Santa’s elves hiding and watching us! We never saw them, but knew they were behind a curtain, in a vase, or behind a picture. That started over 60 years ago!

  19. Renea Yarolim says:

    My favorite Christmas memory is when we would pack up the car in Iowa to drive to Minnesota to my grandparents house to spend the holiday with all my aunts, uncles and cousins. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  20. Lori Smanski says:

    these are adorable. my favorite Christmas memory is when I was nine my uncle brought us kids a puppy for Christmas. She was the best family dog.

  21. carolyn montgomery says:

    my favorite memory is the year my dad was sick and my mom let me help put out the gifts from santa. i was so excited and felt so grown up.

  22. Christine says:

    My favorite holiday memory was the year I asked for a typewriter, at 10 years old, and my grandfather got me one. This was back when all typewriters were manual. When I took typing and shorthand in high school it was a lot easier for me because I already had been taught the correct method. Thanks for the chance to win.

  23. Chiska says:

    My favorite Christmas was when my little brother was suprised with a gaming system he’d been told over and over again he could not have. I don’t think any of us will ever forget the look on his face. It was priceless.

  24. Donna W says:

    My favorite Christmas memory is Christmas Eve at my parents house for our family. This included ours and 2 of my aunt and uncles families. I was the youngest in the group of kids (by a lot) and always received a Venice Paradise Coloring Set. It got to be a tradition that my brother and sister and cousins would all sit around coloring them. Not until I got older could I understand why they liked to do this. Some of these cousins were 15 years older than I. But, it still makes me smile to think about them all sitting around coloring.

  25. We were moving from DC to MD and stayed with my mother’s parents. When we woke up there were three Christmas trees each set up with either a farm scene or a train scene. That year my sister and I got our second Baby Nancy (we’re twins) so that we would have twins. BIG BIG BIG SMILE.

  26. Emily Stevens says:

    I have a very young family so last Christmas was a good memory for me, two happy little girls and a new baby boy. It filled my heart to have a happy family on that special day. I’d love to win some Christmas fabric:) emilyste7ens at gmail dot com

  27. Sharon Browne says:

    Love the Storybook line! My favorite Christmas tradition was the flannel pajamas my grandmother used to make for us each year. I knew I could count on going to bed Christmas eve with new jammies!

  28. spatch says:

    Favorite Christmas memory….Christmas Day when we get to eat the chocolate ornaments that were hanging on the tree. Your Storybook design is truly nostalgic.

  29. Susan says:

    My favorite Christmas memory is when my grandmother bought me a doll as big as I was. She was a tiny little woman and brought it from Manhattan on the train after work. Still miss her…..

  30. Nancy says:

    My favorite memory was when I woke up around 2 am and ran to the living room and saw that I did indeed get the Barbie doll that I had been hoping for, along with several outfits for her…Santa had come!

  31. My favorite Christmas memory is of my family gathering on Christmas Eve. All my cousins and grandparents were together with us. What a great way to spend the night; good food and company.

  32. Beautiful fabrics! My favorite Christmas memory is seeing tracks in the snow and just knowing that Santa’s reindeer made them.

  33. MARY D says:

    I have many favorite holiday memories as the Christmas holiday season is my most favorite full of festivities. One of my most cherished memories is when my family had rented a hall overlooking an indoor ice skating for our annual family & friends holiday event. All of the children wanted to go ice skating which was their first time. We could watch them through the glass. There was my granddaughter, 5 yrs old at the time, skating away with the ‘ice chair’ they give the little ones. The older children were helping her around and she just kept going. It was a joy to see them all out there slipping and sliding away. When I went to retrieve her, she grabbed my neck so tight and said “Grammy I’m cold”. I hugged her so so tight and all I could was smile. She didn’t want to leave the ice.

    As a child, I loved going to the mall the day after Christmas and watching Santa arrive. Some years he came on a fire truck, once by helicopter, it was a different entry to the holiday season each year.
