    My Mom's family is primarily divided between KY and AL with most in KY so in AL we have these small and quaint holidays while in KY it is massive and chaotic and both have their wonderful charm and beatiful moments.

    I loved and still love Easter. And no, not because of the candy. It was the only time I remember my dad going to church when I was a kid. Now he won't miss a Sunday. :)

  39. I am a new GFC follower. I cannot think of a great Christmas story from my own life. But I can tell you that my son was born on December 27. I went into labor Christmas evening after 11 pm. I always thought how kind it was of him to wait until after Christmas. :)

    Thanks for the chance.

  43. To be really honest with you I don't have any good Christmas stories to retell. My dad died on Christmas morning when I was 8 and I frankly can't remember any before that. When I grew up though I did have good Christmas memories with my own kids.

    One of my favorite holiday memories is going to bed on Christmas Eve right after my mom separated from her husband and we had just moved into a teeny tiny space ... we had no Christmas tree, no lights, no presents. When we woke up, however, (and I still have the picture Mom took of this), we came down to a LOT of presents, a tree, lights .. it was magical. The best part about it was our surprise. After I grew up, I found out that my mom really HAD nothing to give us for Christmas. Her husband was abusive, and she had been lucky to get out of the house, period. She left with little money, and a low-wage job and four kids. Her friends had come on Christmas Eve with the tree and presents and Christmas food ... all a surprise to her as well. She cried when she told me about it, so I can only imagination how she reacted that Christmas Eve.

  50. Great giveaway! I am a follower. One of my favorite Christmas memory is my now-husband I I leaving Midnight Church and having the snow falling as we left to go home. There was something so peaceful and beautiful anout the cold, dark, and snow-filled sky.
