How about a giveaway on Christmas Eve!!
What would it be if we did not have our sweet memories of days gone by? I remember Christmas Eve as a child and the memories that I have always bring me such warmth and remembrance of those happy times puts a smile in my heart.
The best memory I have of Christmas Eve is one that I always sit and think about every Christmas. One year my sister and I heard noises late into the night so we got up to investigate. We just knew we would find Santa in our living room! We got out of bed and slowly crept up the hall but once we peeked around the door into the living room we got the surprise of our life! Our mother was strowing ashes from the fire place all the way to the tree and back to the fireplace with a boot!!! We watched her as she would put the shoe into the fireplace and then take it and make footsteps leaving the ash footprint behind.
We had to have stood there forever or it seemed like we did... we actually stayed there way too long because mother finally sensed someone watching her and found us out!! When she turned our way our eyes got as big as saucers and all we could do was giggle! That was the year my sister and I got "the talk"... we were quite sad that there isn't actually a jolly fat man who parks a sleigh on your roof with a team of reindeer and then takes it upon himself to fit himself down the chimney so he can leave presents under your tree. But what we got in place of that was actually something more precious! Our mother taking the time to do what she did to make Christmas morning be as fantastic as she could for her children!
Of course we were threatened to within an inch of our life if we told our younger brother and sister. That first Christmas morning turned out to be better than we thought it would even knowing there was no real Santa..... because me and my sister had a secret! We felt like the biggest girls on the earth that morning, smiles brimming wide... we probably looked like the cat that ate the canary!
I would love to know what your Christmas Eve memories are.... so how about we all share together and in return I will have a little give-away!
I have an antique yo-yo quilt that I have the desire to give to another quilter! I bought this in an antique shop back in the 80's and have used it as a table covering quite a few times while I have owned it and now I would love to pass it on to someone else to love and use. I have thought long and hard about just how to give this away. And I think it would be fun for everyone to share their own Christmas Eve traditions with the rest of us.
Comment to this thread and tell us about your own Christmas Eve memories.
I will give this gorgeous antique yo-yo quilt away on Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. Central time to one lucky person!! How is that for an extra special Christmas present just for you!
