That's an awesome way to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas.

And you reminded me -- how much we enjoyed baking Christmas cookies.

I enjoyed the love of family and friends, great food, baking oodles of Christmas cookies (filling one Swedish crystal platter for my Dad to take into the workplace), the many decorations (inside and around town) and celebrating the holiday with my extended family of God.

After dinner and cleaning up the dishes on Christmas Eve, we would open presents and then worship our Lord at church. On Christmas Day we would have widowed family to the house for dinner, fellowship and watching Christmas movies. My favorite movie remains Miracle on 34th Street.

As an adult, I so enjoyed celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas. With many international students on campus for the winter break, I would unofficially adopt a few kids and bring them with me for Christmas at home. Many times we would have a little something for them to open all 12 days ... ie three pair of socks on Dec 27, four tooth brushes on Dec 28, etc. I remember one restaurant dinner party on the 12th day of Christmas (Jan 5), where everyone was given a ceramic Japanese soup bowl with 12 wrapped fortune cookies beautifully packaged -- What a fun Christmas. Oh how I love when I can do a favor or gift on any special occasion that falls within the 12 Days of Christmas.

What is your favorite holiday childhood memory?

Mine is of Christmas Eves when a couple of my Aunts & Uncles came to our house as we opened our presents.
