Christmas Sweetheart Memories

Do you have a special memory of a first Christmas present from a sweetheart? How did you spend your first Christmas together?

Here is a brief summary of contributions from fellow bloggers and links to their individual posts:

Randy presents Day 2 - Christmas Sweetheart Memories posted at Genea-Musings. While he really doesn't remember the first Christmas present from his future wife Linda, he does have fond memories of spending Christmas at her parents' house in San Francisco.

At Smoky Mountain Family Historian, learn who Lori's sweetheart was one Christmas as she presents Christmas Sweetheart Memories.

Janet presents Gift of Genealogy posted at Janet the researcher. She proves that great gifts don't always come from sweethearts but from genea-friends both near and far.

Stephen in The Ghost of Christmas Past posted at Steve's Genealogy Blog gives us a illustrative answer to today's question. Sweet and simple.

Apple presents Apple's Tree: Our First Christmas Eve posted at Apple's Tree. She and John spend their 25th Christmas together this year and she recalls that first Christmas together. Congratulations Apple!

At AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors. Miriam presents Advent Memories No. 23: Christmas Sweetheart Memories. She recalls the first two Christmases with her future husband, one at his family's house and the second at her parents' home.

At CanadaGenealogy, or 'Jane's Your Aunt' we have new posts from Diane. In December 23 - Christmas Sweetheart Memories, the song Winter Wonderland evokes memories of a special boy in the school choir. Please take time to read Diane's other posts as she plays catch-up - there is some great stuff there!

Jasia let's us know that, "happiness is not being forgotten at Christmas" in Christmas Sweethearts at Creative Gene. Guys: remember that a quick run to the store for a special gift like a bowling ball just doesn't cut it. But other round stones, the kind with four gold prongs, do.

At Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi, Terry has the perfect solution to this problem: with which set of parents does a newly married couple spend Christmas? See Terry's solution at December 23: Christmas Sweetheart Memories.

In Special Christmases for Special Loved Ones, I describe the pitfalls of getting swept up in the Christmas season when it comes to sweethearts. Read more at Destination: Austin Family.
