Christmas memories

Most of us have childhood memories or traditions surrounding the holidays.  At my house on Christmas Eve, my mother always made something called foujens (and I totally don't know the actual spelling of the word, that is phonetic), which are small dough balls filled with raisins and dipped into cinnamon sugar. Then we would drive from the farm to town to see all the Christmas lights, but every year, before we left, Mom would have to go back into the house to check to see if the stove was off. That was when Santa delivered the presents! When we got back, we would open all our presents and get to stay up as late as we wanted. It was also the only day of the year that our dog was allowed the run of the house. On Christmas Day, we would go "over the river and through the woods" to Grandma's house for a wonderful goose dinner. What are some of your childhood memories of the holidays?  - Riley
