  1. I had a flat tire one Christmas morning. Fortunately, I was at home. I changed the tire and got to Christmas dinner in plenty of time to enjoy great food and great family fun.

  4. Maybe it's not the worst, but perhaps more the unexpected, after the birth of my second child, we decided to have Christmas at home - just us, no travelling, no visitors. My in laws turned up for Christmas Day, bearing gifts and food, they wanted to be with their grandchildren. Luckily the house was clean!!
    Can't get that fabric in New Zealand so always a treat!

  5. Worst: home from uni and got the flu. Was too busy throwing up to care about presents.

    Funniest: first christmas as a newly wed and my husband was unwrapping a present to both of us from my mum. He unwrapped a new roll of paper towels and was...baffled. He tried to hand it to me and politely ask WTF. I, not looking at him or stopping my conversation with my sister, took the roll and pulled from the middle of the tube the gift certificate my mum had carefully hidden.

  13. Thank you Maryse for sharing that lovely fabric! My memory takes me many years behind. We were supposed to go to spend the Christmas with friends in north Greece. We were in the ship packed with things and presents (emptied the the food from home) ... stayed in the ship untile next day and it didn't leave because of the bad weather. We returned home but many people stayed still waiting. We spend that Christmas with cousins. x Teje

  35. The funniest or the worst thing that has ever happened was we arrived more or less two hours late to dinner ,( December 24 is the most important dinner of the year in Spain), because it was rainning and every half hour calling on the phone to my sister to say that we are very close and have arrived.

  36. Early in my marriage I was hosting my in-laws for Christmas. I had baked LOTS of cookies and had them stashed everywhere. I was getting some down from on top of the refrigerator when I dropped several containers of cookies. Of course the lids came off and cookies flew everywhere. My in-laws still talk about it, over 20 years later. Funny now, not so funny to me back then.

  37. I saw one of the early Harry Potter movies in theaters on Christmas Eve and the film roll caught on fire. We had to evacuate and finish the movie another day.

On Christmas morning I opened my gift, and he had gotten me a kitchen knife! I do like to cook so it was a good gift, but I had jewelry on my mind! Many thanks!

  57. The worst thing that I can remember happening to me on Christmas was getting underwear as a Christmas present from my aunt and uncle when I was 7 yrs. old.

  60. Well, it wasn't Christmas Day, but Christmas Eve, around 6th grade. My Dad and my sister's boyfriend were in a pretty bad car accident out in the country. They were in a small Ford Ranger, it was very very foggy out, and someone ran a stop sign in the country and completely smashed into them. If the boyfriend hadn't been so tall, he would have gone through the windshield instead of hitting his head on the ceiling. It was a bad enough accident that Dad laid on the couch, shivering from shock, all day Christmas, and we didn't go to Grama & Grampa's that day because of it.

I screamed because I wasn't expecting pink stuff on my new hamster (a baby) and I was really happy to find out that happened but I bet my Mom felt like crying!! Haha. She insisted that they should be the same sex and promised that they were.

  70. My sister dislocated her shoulder on Christmas Eve and I had to drive her to an Urgent Care then the ER. I wasn't the one in agony but it was so traumatic. My tough sister who never cries was in agony for hours and nothing either of us could do. I said lots of prayers and made lots of promises to be good if it would just end. It was quite the experience.

My dad made new table with benches so everyone could sit - the first year though when we stood up we all had a little of the paint on our clothes as it turned out the paint hadn't dried completely. It was pretty funny. Thanks for the chance.

  128. Funniest thing for me was huge family gathering, think 75+ people. Most of us live in Florida so the weather was nice. Food is ready, everybody gets a plate. I sat down in the plastic patio chair and both of the back legs snapped off. I flipped backward and my plate landed upside down on my face. Picture it: laying on my back, my legs still hooked over the front of the chair, with my plate on my face and gravy running into my right ear. The chair had arms so I had to wait while everybody laughed (including me). Somebody did finally pull the chair off my ass so I could hose off.

  138. We made the traditional sweet potatoes casserole with marshmallow topping with really fresh marshmallows. When the got warm, they puffed up to the point that they slid off the pan into the bottom of the oven. At that point they became flambé of marshmallow. Christmas Day smelled like a campfire- warm and toasted marshmallows and all!

  140. Well, mine is a not-funny. I got the flu one year and I apparently wasn't feeling very Chrismtas-y and kept trying to hurry everyone up to open their presents so I could go back to bed. :( When Mommy is sick on Christmas morning, it's a drag! Fortunately, that hasn't happened again. Whew! Love your fabric giveaway!

  145. One Christmas when I was in college I had a specific item on my list, but I didn't get it. I was disappointed because it would have been an easy thing for my parents to have found, it wasn't super-expensive, and I really wanted it. I'm not even sure now what it was! Anyway, hours after we all opened our presents (big family, six kids), Mom found a bag that she hadn't seen with a few more gifts in it -- there was my present!

    Thanks for the chance to win. I've been interested in this fabric since I first saw it, but I've never even been to an Ikea and I think they're not even making it anymore! melanie at vagnini dot org

  150. I think that the fact that my youngest son would get a fever every Christmas Eve made Christmas a challenging time. We could count on him getting sick each year.

  158. I can't think of a funny Christmas story but I have a funny Thanksgiving one. My husband and I were driving down to friends from Portland, OR to Santa Cruz, CA and there was such bad traffic that we had to eat microwaved burritos at a gas station and arrived hours late for thanksgiving dinner. Thanks! tljeo at yahoo dot com

  159. An Ikea opened this year in Las Vegas. I waited and waited for it, and now I have not even visited! Great giveaway!!

    My son once managed to pull not one, but two pies from the counter and onto his walker while we were preparing to leave the house on Christmas morning. He was quite proud of himself, saving everyone those extra calories you know..

  162. Forty four years ago I laid under the Christmas tree (our first Christmas as a newly married couple) as my husband wound the Christmas tree lights around the tree. I said, "Wouldn't it be a good idea if someone invented artificial trees where the lights were already attached or imbedded in the branches?" He laughed and said, "It'll never happened." Guess who's laughing now and I haven't let a Christmas go by that I haven't reminded him of our million dollar opportunity that we let get away.

  166. There is a story about me going around. I must have been 5 years old and I was staying with my at the relatives and I got sick over Christmas. After a long nap I awoke and came out of the bedroom bleary eyed. My aunts, cousins, etc. were offering me food. Do you want some ham? rolls? potatoes? Then my great uncle, who called me a boy, (I had long, blonde curls and wore a pink frilly dress-he was quite a tease.) offered me candy. I did what ever 5 yo would do. Yes, please!
