Share some of your favorite Christmas memories

Dec. 17, 2013 @ 10:29 PM

HUNTINGTON -- The Christmas season often brings back plenty of our favorite memories. The Herald-Dispatch recently asked a few local residents for their favorite holiday memories. We would like to know your favorite as well.

If you would like to share your favorite Christmas memories for possible publication, email your story to news@herald-dispatch.com with "Christmas memory" in the subject line.

Here are some of your favorite memories:

Janet Bricker -- "I asked my mother if I could open something early. She said I could, and I opened modeling clay. That was the neatest gift."

Jo Ann Miller -- "When I was about 5 years old I got a little tiny piano. That is the gift I was most thrilled about."

Dan Boyd -- "My favorite Christmas memory is her (his wife Jan Boyd)."

Beverly Burgess -- "I was with my twins, who are 33 years old now. At the time, they were 8 weeks old, and I put them inside huge stockings and set them underneath the tree."

Jean Lezu -- "My favorite Christmas memory is when I got my little boy a 6 week old cocker spaniel puppy dog. I put the puppy underneath the tree. When my son woke up he was all smiles."

Dick Newman -- "Once I was leadying my orchestra at a Christmas dance and a man walked up and said he was going to give me some advice. He said to me, 'If you can't play jazz, then play the melody to the best of your ability.' That, I think was some of the best advice I ever received and my greatest Christmas memory.
