So it's barely a week 'til Christmas, and I was thinking, "Everyone's got some memory of the holidays they'll remember forever" on top of wanting to spread some good old Christmas cheer. So, let's share our funniest/cutest/most heartwarming and/or memorable stories! (And yes, Hannukah/Kwanzaa/Diwali etc. ones count too!)
Mine is that when I was five, I lived in a little town on a cul-de-sac street that was full of kids my age. The night before Christmas eve I was sitting on the couch in the living room one evening, before I saw a very shocking surprise out the window- Santa Claus was walking along the street, ho-ho-hoing, ringing his bells and waving at all the houses with kids in them! I of course waved back, thought it was the real Santa, and Mom assured me "Oh, he's just practicing for tomorrow! And you've been good so you know he'll come back again!"
I found out a few years ago, now entirely grown up, that one of the neighbours down the street had rented a Santa suit and did that just for all the kids on the block (and most of the other kids had the exact same reaction as me!). What a sweet gesture.
And here's a Xmas tradition I always did, did anyone else do this too? I always left carrot pieces out for the reindeer and an extra cookie with a note to save one for Mrs. Claus.

Unless there is a 75% off sale at the Fabric store. Then you're on your own. And get the hell out of my way."<3
