Default Memories of Childhood Christmas

What is your best toy memory of Christmas when you were a kid ???

Mine was getting a doll called Tippy Tumbles loved it, but short lived when I took her into the bath with me and then Tippy didn't want to Tumble any more as the machanics had all rusted up

no childhood memories of Xmas...
In Holland we believe in Sinterklaas...he comes on the 5th of December and gives presents...
Only recently people have started giving presents at Xmas as well...which makes it a bit of an expensive month...

oh good...me neither....I can sort of remember the atmosphere and the family and things...but no actual presents, apart from some stuff that was photographed at the time, but that's not a memory as such....just remembering cause there is a picture of it...
