Anyone have any funny Christmas traditions or stories to share?

I remember when:

I was a little kid they came out with those aluminum Christmas trees with the color changing disc in the tree stand. It changed colors on the tree. We thought that was too cool.

The fun times we had at the Christmas parades as a kid.....especially the candy, candy, candy.

The night I saw a red light going across the night sky and believed for years that was Rudolph's red nose....found out years later it was airplane lights......

My children's first Christmas under the tree. We always had the little outfits with "My first Christmas" on them.

Do you remember when......
