Favorite Christmas Gifts from Childhood

Favorite Christmas Gifts

Most of us have favorite Christmas gifts we remember from our childhood.
I was eight the year Easy Bake Ovens hit stores for the first time. My mom, a single parent, could not afford a gift of that size. 

When I spotted a huge gift under my aunt and uncle's Christmas tree with my name on it, my heart leaped with hope.

     Do you think I got my wish? Could this be why, fifty-some years later, I still love to bake? What is your favorite Christmas gift from you childhood?


  1. I don't think the easy bake ovens ever made it to the Netherlands :)
    As children we received gifts December 5th, which we call St. Nicolas. Christmas was strictly a religious celebration. I don't remember any special gifts, but the family gatherings were so special!

Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
