Reminiscing on Christmas Past with Christmas Candy

Growing up, the holidays were one of my favorite times of the year! In my childhood home the holidays were centered on family, friends, presents, food, and did I mention presents? Now that I’m older I love to look back on those cherished Christmas memories and think about the tasty candy treats my family would always have during the holiday season!Christmas Advent Calendar

- You always knew Christmas was on its way when my mother started merrily placing glass candy dishes filled with old fashioned hard candy around the house. I loved grabbing a few candies to keep in my pocket!

- Every Christmas, until I was well into my 20’s, we would kick off December by opening the first door on our Christmas Advent Calendars. Nothing was more exciting as a child than the promise of a delicious piece of chocolate everyday, while anticipating the arrival of Santa Claus!

- The Christmas season was never complete until after we made our annual gingerbread house. Decorated with M&Ms, gum drops, and other mouth watering goodies, our gingerbread houses were almost too good to eat!

Candy Canes- Decorating the tree was a fun filled celebration! My father would string the lights while my mother and I would prepare the ornaments and decorations. Not a year went by when we didn’t decorate the Christmas tree with candy canes! I remember trying to hang a candy cane from every single branch!

- Dark Chocolate Covered Thin Mints were a Christmas staple! We would always have a few boxes lying around the house to give as gifts, but more often than not we would keep some boxes to enjoy for ourselves!

- My ginormous Christmas stocking was always hung from staircase with care, and I knew that good old Saint Nicholas had rounded out the bottom of every stocking with popcorn balls!

I bet you also have some sweet Christmas memories from when you were a child! Share them with us by leaving a comment with your favorite Christmas memory.
