Let's see if we can't get the comments rolling....
Tell me/us your favorite Christmas memory.
For me it is November of 2000. I was newly engaged to Amy, and I guess it was the weekend after Thanksgiving. She was working these 16 hour shifts from 3pm to 7am.
I had the weekend off as I was working a 9-5 job and traveling a lot.
Amy went to work that Saturday, and I went to see Charlie's Angels at the movies. On the way home I stopped and bought a Christmas tree and took it to Amy's apartment (I had a key). She had already left for work, so I set up the tree near the living room/kitchen border. I cleaned the apartment as much as possible, strung lights on the tree and set up a boom box playing Christmas music on repeat before leaving the apartment.
When Amy got home the following morning she entered the apartment to find the lit tree, the place cleaned, and music playing. For a Christmas fanatic like Amy, I could do little better, and I think I have yet to top that one.
