View this post on Ecency: Day 17 - Steem Advent Calendar 2019, Win prize everyday! 🎄🎁
One of the best memories I have is that my grandmother would put coins in our hands every December 24th, so that when we woke up on the 25th, we would believe that she had been a Saint. We were very poor at that time and she said that Santa brought us money so that we could buy food and not toys. We always bought bread. The idea of waking up and finding money in our hands was really a joy. It was the innocence of a child when Christmas arrived! Greetings and thank you for reminding me of this beautiful passage from my childhood.
I really like this memory. Grandmothers are so special to their grandchildren. Thank you for sharing this with us :)
That would be 2017 December, I was critically laying very ill on my sick bed and I had just signed up to steem that same September of that year and ironically the bull run kept going while my health kept deteriorating but why it's become my most best Christmas memories, was that I was shown so much love by the Steem Community and some steemians in Nigeria even visited me in the hospital, it was memorable, being bedridden and Experiencing that bull run
Back when I believe Santa Claus was real. Haha. And celebrating it with the whole family, of course.

Haha, nothing like free prizes for all the Steemians. It's always nice to see all of the giving going around this time of year. And this type of thing will help promote the platform too. We do have a Bitcoin Dice Faucet that has been giving away it's fair share of rewards as well.
My best Christmas memory is undoubtedly my first Christmas as a mother, my oldest daughter on her first Christmas was 3 months old, her eyes grew big when she saw the lights and she didn't understand any gifts. An unforgettable Christmas that improves year after year, this year it will be my two daughters who decorate the holiday.
In 2016 Christmas I went to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and Genting Island and this was one of the best Christmas time I clicked photo in genting and weather was awesome there.
My best Christmas memory is my Grandma's attic. When things got too rough with the adults the kids went to exlore the attic. We found toys from the 1960s and a boxing back. If that wasn't enough for memories her apartment was on Lincoln Avenue so out the attict window we could see the newly built Sears tower. For us everything from giant sized JI Joe dolls to wind up cars and a jack in the box were just magic although we were looking forward to new Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader toys for Christmas morning. We were not dissapointed.
My best Christmas memory is related to my first trip to Swiss during the winter holidays. Swiss was my childhood dream, and there couldn't be a better time to make a dream truth than Christmas. I was walking around the Christmas market with my friends. Everything reminded me Christmas, family, warm.
Hmm... My best Christmas memories was the one time during Christmas that we didn't have much money to celebrate the way we want.... No Christmas tree, no special delicacies but we found comfort in each other as family. We did not let that fact to ruin the Christmas, instead we found Christmas in our own very presence as family. In fact it was then I learnt that without family, even with the gifts and special delicacies it is nothing because family makes everyday seem like Christmas to you.....Thank you for this wonderful platform to share this.
Family and relatives in the house celebrating while I was on the couch in the living room chatting with some of my cousins with a cup of hot choco on my hand while it was a gloomy afternoon and a bit rainy outside. I love these lofi-esque atmospheres.
Congos to all
As a Muslim, raised in Egypt, I don't have many Christmas memories.
I do remember colorful feasts at my Christian friends home, and at the American School that I went to. Also, my grandmother and paternal aunt (although not Christians) both run schools and get in the spirit of the season by putting up trees in their schools and homes.
Now, based in the US, and with a Catholic wife, Christmas is more of a big deal. Here's a sweet picture of a Christmas tree my wife and I decorated, with our angelic god-daughter looking on :)
That will be so many years back when I was very young and mom bought me this toy phone. I loved it so much and on Christmas morning as we walked to Church, I was full of smiles and couldn't take my hands off my new gadjet 😅
EVERY YEAR wonderful camping trips with the family at the coast since 2015 . one year we even saw a SpaceX launch the night on the same day we got there and it was an amazing experience. But always a good time with the family enjoying the moments we have during the full camping experience each time has its amazing stories to tell and memories to hold for a a life time.
