The best present I ever received was a little ceramic pig dressed in a frilly dress. This may sound odd, but it was from my daughter and it was the first present she ever bought for me with money she earned at a real job and she picked it out herself! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!

I was 17, almost 18 years old. I had decided that church was for suckers. To repay me, my foster family drove me to the nearest city (where I didn't know anyone) and simply dropped me off with a backpack.

Christmas was coming, and I was alone.


I managed through on my own until Christmas Eve, sleeping under bridges, in bus stations, on random couches of people who didn't mind a random teenager crashing there. December 24th rolled around, and the day was bitterly cold. I spent much of the day hiding in a bus terminal, trying to keep warm. I had a pair of gloves, I had a scarf. I had somehow lost my socks, and I remember clearly how cold my toes were in my shoes.

The sky clouded over, and I overheard people saying, "It's going to be a white Christmas, this year." Afraid for my sockless feet, I asked around and found out where the nearest youth shelter was. I headed there on foot, and arrived right around dinner time.

They let me in with a smile. They served me a good, hot meal. They had a Christmas tree, and a small stereo playing cheerful carols that could barely be heard over the sound of too many noisy, well fed street kids. And when I asked to be allowed to sleep there tonight, they had a bed available. I was safe, for the night.

I woke up in the morning and glanced out the window; it had snowed, and it had snowed a lot. My childhood delight of a white Christmas had been obliterated by my fear of being too cold for too long. I could smell hot cider coming from the kitchen. I got up, put my shoes back onto bare feet, and went out to greet the day.

To my surprise, there were presents under the tree that morning! Stockings thumbtacked to the walls! A breakfast of pancakes and eggs and bacon, hot cider, hot chocolate, and coffee! I nearly broke down and cried from joy.

I ate my fill. The staff at the shelter allowed all of us homeless, family-less kids to open presents and pick a stocking from the wall. I got candy, trail mix, a bottle of water. I got ponytail ties and a couple barrettes for my hair. I was gifted with scented lotion and a stick of deodorant and, miraculously, two new pairs of socks. Then the impractical gifts appeared; a hair dryer, and a large stuffed bunny that looked like it should have arrived on Easter, not Christmas.

I thanked the people at the shelter and made off with my gifts into the snow, clean socks on my feet and a smile on my face. The hair dryer was bartered away that day for another hot meal, but for some reason, I kept the bunny. Eight Christmases later, the big yellow bunny still greets me on Christmas morning to remind me that there are good people in the world, and to never ever take anything for granted.

It's so hard to pick a single "best present", because they are all so special! One fun memory from childhood was getting The Little Mermaid doll from santa that I had wanted so much. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

My son has been missing since he was 2 which was over 16 years ago. I just recently (within the last two months) found him living in Europe with his father and grandparents. This is the first Christmas in over 16 years that I got to send him gifts and say "Merry Christmas". I've found my child. That is my best gift ever.

Our two autistic children wear me out on “normal” days. Preparing for Christmas is especially draining. One particular Christmas Eve, I was totally exhausted. With the children finally asleep and presents under the tree, my husband sent me to bed. I quickly fell asleep, awaking to my best Christmas present ever. He stayed up very late cleaning the entire house!

To find out I was pregnant on Christmas Eve...many, many years ago. This after spending weeks of thinking I had stomach flu or stomach cancer...for some reason the idea of being pregnant never occurred to me. LOL!
