  1. I have never spent the winter holiday at anywhere other than my parent's house or my in-law's house. However, I can't imagine spending the holidays anywhere that my family isn't!

  2. The cooloest place i've spent christmas in was in Mexico. It is SO much ore different than here and no snow=awesome. I just felt more at home there and the people were so friendly! We also went to the pyramids and it was beautiful at night so thats a plus.

  3. Looking back now, the best Christmas I remember was being at my grandparents and my grandfather kept the fire going all night to keep us warm. All us kids slept in the livingroom (which probably made it extra difficult for Santa to arrive). It was so memorable. I miss them so.

  4. the one time we rented a beach house for Christmas! its was so much fun and since it was a time i still believed in Santa (sorry believers :D) i would stand on the deck watching the moon on the waves expecting to see santa coming from that general direction :) it was a time i will never forget :D

    Again another amazing! secondhand saturday

  5. Last christmas my whole family went on a cruise! So that definitely wins, even though I got terribly sea sick.

  6. Strangest was probably the time we spent it in the Dominican Republic. Christmas Dinner by the beach!

  7. I've never had Christmas anywhere other than at home. I can't really even imagine it anywhere else. Christmas is family.

    I can say the strangest Christmas I've ever had was the one year my father was forced to work. Having Christmas without my dad was definitely strange. It didn't feel like Christmas!

  8. We don't even have a winter christmas where I live. But I do spend christmas every year with my family and loved ones.

  9. One year my family drove up to Mammoth mountain in CA and the snow was EVERYWHERE! Like, it was CRAZY! We went skiing everyday there, and since it was my sister's and my first time skiing ever, well, let's just say we were very sore by the first night. Actually, I was knocked over by an over-zealous snowboarder in my attempts to safely get down the mountain in my "snowman" gear. I was like a defenseless marshmallow descending the hill, unable to move my arms. Needless to say, it took me a good long time--and some yummy hot chocolate--to recover from my snowboarding attack.

  10. Back home in the Philippines with my family watching the fireworks in the sky.

  11. When I was 14, I went with my friends to stay at a cabin in Strawberry, CA during the holidays. It was my first time being around snow and it was the most horrible experience ever. I was freezing the entire time and had to walk around in one of my friend's dad's coats that went down to my feet. I've spent every other Christmas at home and have no desire to visit any place with snow anytime soon. I'd rather just look at the pretty pictures of it. :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hmm, if I really think hard about it, I don't think I've really ever been anywhere other than with my family during the holidays. I mean, when I get my Winter break then I travel the two hour drive up North to stay with family :) And although I do it every year, it is still a blast for me, every year, every time!

    It's rare that I'm not spending Christmas at home w/family, but once when I was about 3 years old my parents and I took a trip to Fla. I was really very worried that Santa wouldn't find me, but when I woke up on Christmas morn, there was a great big baby doll waiting for me.
    I've never forgotten that wonderful surprise!!!

  16. I always spend Christmas at home with family . For me, that's the coolest place to be during Holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I always spend my Christmas Holidays at home with my parents, dogs and brother. And I have bigger family dinners/get togethers on Christmas Eve and Christmas, sometimes even Boxing Day (Dec.26)...I'm not sure if it's called Boxing Day anywhere but Canada to be honest lol
    So I guess at home is the best place :) I love the Christmas morning where I don't actually have to be anywhere...oh I just thought of something cool. My parents used to manage and own our town's local hotel, and we used to have giant family Christmas parties there on Christmas Eve. I always loved it! We have a big family so it was usually pretty packed lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think the most meaningful/significant holiday I had was a few years ago that I spent with my family. A few weeks before that Christmas, a man broke into my family's house and held my mom, two of my sisters, and my little niece hostage. He stole their jewelry, money (which my mom had a lot in cash b/c she was going to go christmas shopping w/ it), and giftcards meant to be christmas presents. At the end of the day he made one of my sisters drive him somewhere and then leave him.

    I had moved to another state earlier in the year, so I hadn't seen my family in a while and wasn't even able to see them after this happened, so Christmas was the first time I got to visit.

    We were all glad to be together and safe and it was the best christmas, just having my family with me.

    (Luckily, my family was unhurt from this incident--physically, I can tell it still affects my mom. she doesn't feel as safe as she used to-- and they did eventually catch the guy, months later and on the other side of the country, but they caught him.)

  19. I'm always spending my winter holidays at home, except once when I was little we were in Goteborg, Sweden, so the most amazing place I've spent the winter holidays is there :)

  20. I have always spent my Christmas holidays in my parents' house. Maybe in the future this will change!

  21. The coolest place I spent my winter vacation was Argentina!
    I have never skied before that!

  22. I've only spent one Christmas not at home, and that was in Germany with aunt/uncle/cousins and my family. Very different traditions to the UK and it was good fun. But I much prefer a quiet Christmas at home with my parents, sister and her boyfriend, like we're having this year. That makes it special for me, all together, chatting, having fun. Can't wait! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've only ever traveled for Christmas twice.

    Once I went to Arizona, which I loved, but of course there wasn't any snow(unless we traveled into them mountains). I did love it though because I was able to visit my Great Grandma and aunt.

    Another time is me and my hubby(we were only dating at the time) went snowboarding in Michigan for Christmas. It was my first time snowboarding, and I still hate it to this day. But I love having the experience.

  25. Winter Holiday & Christmas are two different things for those we're living in the South Hemisphere ;) . The coolest place I've ever spent christmas in was in New Zealand. It was SO much different than here. It was summer time like were I live but the streets were full of the Christmas spirit. I remember the Bookstores with a Huge Santa decoration and the bus drivers giving free Santa pens...It was awesome. Besides, it was very meaningful to me because was my first trip ever out of my country. Now for winter break I have a few really amazing anecdotes but don't think they apply here ;)

  26. The coolest place I ever spent my vacation in would be... Sri Lanka! Aka: The Island of Paradise. Located in the Indian Ocean - off the coast of India :)

    The first time I went there was in 2004 (I think) and we were in the plane when the tsunami hit! We didn't even know about it until we landed and our family members told us the awful news!

  27. My answer is pretty lame, but true. We've never been anywhere other than home for the holidays.

  28. I've never really spent the holidays anywhere other than at different cousin's houses. But I always love spending Christmas Eve at my Grandma's house. We always have some type of Italian dish and get to open presents the day before Christmas!

  30. I think it has to be when I spent Christmas in Australia - We has a barbeques at the beach!!! The sun was out and it was so hot. Totally different to the cold rain and wind that normally accompanies Christmas at home. Was really strange as usually we spend the day at my Grandparents with my whole family pigging out on turkey, mince pies and mulled wine!

  33. For the past 6 years I've spent the Christmas holiday season skiing in the Austrian Alps since my family lives in Europe. This year I won't be going there but I will be going to London.

  34. I love spending the holidays in California because it means that my family is having an awesome family reunion. Living in two different coasts of the United States, I don't get to see my cousins too often so I relish any time we spend the holidays in California.

  35. It would have to be my grandmother's when she was alive and all of my cousins would sleep over. We would all be crammed into her tiny livingroom and diningroom and tell scary stories for hours with only the fireplace for light. It was cool and fun and full of memories. Because she lived just outside of Sudbury, Ontario, there was always plenty of snow to give it that special ambiance as well. I still think of those times with fond pleasure.

  39. My boyfriend, my little brother, and myself decided at about noon on New Year's Eve that we wanted to go to Times Square to celebrate New Year's (which is a 10-12 hour drive from Detroit). We braved a ridiculous snow storm, got horribly lost (none of us had ever been to New York before and knew no one there). But we made it. It was AMAZING! After all the treachery we overcame, I was actually bumped into and MISSED the last 3 seconds of the ball dropping. I MISSED IT!!! What an awesome adventure we had, though!

  44. We've always been at home, as far as I can remember, except for one Christmas where we rented our friend's beach condo and did Christmas there with my grandma. It's the beach we go to every year and we delivered donuts on Christmas Eve to the fire station. It was totally fun, until Grandma got sick :/

    By the way, this is a really cool contest! I don't know why I didn't look more closely on all the other Saturdays!

  48. I've never spent Christmas anywhere other than my house. But I prefer that (Especially when there is snow!) I have a huge family (I am the 5th out of 6 children), so we're like a party in our selves. However, we do go to a big Christmas Eve party every year at out family friend's house- its alot of fun! Actualy, our family friends who host the party have other family friends and my older brother ended up marrying (and they just had their first child) one of the girls in their family.

  53. I guess that would be on a drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco. We stopped in Santa Barbara and, since I am from Canada, I couldn't get over the fact that it was SUMMER in December.

  54. Our Christmas is in the roaring summer here, so I think the weirdest place to spend it would be in front of the fireplace LOL. But personally, I've only ever really spent it at home or a few years we've gotten together with a bunch of family friends. So I guess Christmas is the 'normal' time of the year, the other 300+ days are full of weird stuff :D

    ReplyDelete
  55. Well, I'm pretty sure Christmas has always been at my house or my cousins' house, so nowhere? This year we spent Thanksgiving day at Harry Potter World though :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm from Florida, so cold winters are rare. But in some parts of state is snowed for the first time in almost 20 years. So last year was a weird, but great Christmas :)

  57. My entire life I have only spent the holiday season at home. I really think that is the only place I would want to be. Traveling this time of year is so stressful.

  60. The most amazing place I've ever spent the holidays was in DisneyWorld. My parents had promised me when I was 5 that they would take me some day. They took my when I was 18!

    However, the best holiday ever was my first Christmas morning in my own house with my husband... Very special feeling!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I have never had Christmas anywhere other than my grandparents house, and I don't know if I would ever want to. It's a tradition in our family to have all of our holidays in their house because in a way, it's all our house too. It's the first place all the new babies come and it's the place people get ready for weddings and big events.
    Ths year will be doubly special though because my Grandad will still be there. It was a bit dicey there for a while and even the doctors had their doubts about him coming home.

  62. The year we spent Christmas in America was the best Christmas EVER because it was a white christmas, in Australia Chritmas is more about BBQs and beach parties then fireplaces and snow!!! It has never snowed here or Christmas!!!

  64. One year, our family spent Christmas in New Hampshire. We were able to be with my dad's side of the family from Maine and even got to go snowboarding on the slopes!I loved waking up to the 3 feet of snow each day! It was amazing!!

  65. I spent Christmas at a cruise once, it was pretty cool :D I got to spend it with my family and some friends, and it was really fun :)

  66. I usually spend Christmas/Holidays with my family. I've never travelled anywhere for Christmas. I would love for all of us to go to Disney for the holidays though!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I don't usually travel on Christmas because I feel like it's a time for family and getting together with friends. Christmas isn't about where you go or what you do, it's a feeling inside of you. So, it would be a great Christmas no matter where you are as long as you carry it in your heart.

  68. I think home is always a special place to spend the holidays. But there was one special Christmas in which all my uncles and cousins came, so that made it extra special!

  70. It use to be we would split the Holiday's between mine and my Husband's family and rotate every year. So, It has never really been anyplace exciting. Three years ago we moved three states away and it's been to expensive to fly home for the holiday's and not worth the risk of driving over the many passes to get home. For the last three years it's just been us and our three kids, so I've missed all of our family get together's. The most special place I can think of would be home surrounded by our extended family and that is what I miss the most

  71. My Nanny (great grandmother's) last Christmas is the holiday that meant most to me. We were in Augusta, Ga, which is where we spend most holidays. But that year was different because for the first time ever we had 4 generations of women together. It was beautiful. My Nanny, Gramy, Great Auntie Patti, Mom, Sister, and myself. My Nanny told me that's all she ever wanted for Christmas.

  72. Since I don't celebrate Christmas, I usually go on a holiday with my family to a few local tourist attraction in Malaysia :)

  76. I've always spent Christmas with my family, but I have lived in 12 different houses in 17 years, so new houses are as wild as I've gotten.

  77. I spent the holidays in Japan with my dad! It's not as pretty as it is in the Spring, and I missed the rest of my family. But the streets are lit beautifully, the decorations are incredible, and the food is fantastic! Definitely a memorable Christmas. :)

  78. I'm usually with my family during the holidays, only once I've spent the Christmas holidays at a a camp. But it was very fun: the camp was located near a forest and a lake, and there was snow and ice everywhere, and only children mostly, so we had a lot of fun:) So this was my most unusual Christmas.

  79. I spend Christmas driving all over the state to fit all of my family in for the holidays. My fiance and always have at least 5 Christmases and it gets CRAZY but I wouldn't trade spending the holidays with family for anything <3

  81. I've never spent holiday season in other place than at home with my family. Sometimes it wasn't as meaningful as it used to be when I was a little girl but it still fun nevertheless.

  85. The coolest/strangest place I've spent the holidays is my own house. Let me explain, I got married 2 years ago, and before that I had never had a holiday at my own house. I always went to my parents. So to stay at home with my new hubby, just the 2 of us, was weird and cool at the same time.

  86. I enjoyed spending one Christmas in Mexico with my Step Dad's family. It was cool seeing other traditions and getting to know my family better.
