My Most memorable Christmas Dinner was 1999. My Family had hosted a Family who had just lost there Home. They came over so looking forward to just escape from there life. We all shared a wonderful meal, and around 8pm, I had pulled in a bag full of presents that my Family had purchased to give to all 5 of them. It was the most wonderful thing I had ever seen. My Family got more joy out of watching others recieve, it was awesome for all involved. I hope that there is a time I can do this again, each and every year.

OK, I will start this with telling you my WORST Christmas dinner... First of all I have a very pampered and spoiled sister.. She wanted to have dinner at her house so I agreed to cook the dinner but ask her to put the turkey in the oven but be sure to take the giblets out of the hollow space by the neck and pull the neck out of the turkey's butt... I get to her house and the turkey was in the oven, good... I ask her where the giblets were and she informed me she could not find them.. So I took the turkey out of the oven and the giblets were still in their proper places.. She informed me she was not about to stick her hand up a turkey's butt and whoever put the giblets in the hollow spot above the breast was nuts... So I pull the giblets out and get the neck out of the turkey's butt and put them in a pan to cook do I could  make the giblet gravy... After the giblets were done I took them out of the pan, diced them and left my broth sit for awhile.. I went back in the kitchen to make the gravy and the broth was gone.. I ask her where it was, and she said "If you are referring to the dirty water that was in the pan, I dumped it out" Oh my...... Then to top everything off I was I was trying  to open the can of cranberry sauce and her can opener was not working properly and I sliced my hand open on the lid and had to go to the emergency clinic to have stitches in my hand...By this time Weller and water was sounding pretty good.....After all the ado, dinner finally turned out very well.. Until, my sister was carrying the turkey to the dinner table....Yes you guessed it, it slid off the platter and SPLAT all over the dining room floor. Did you know turkey's bounce when you drop them on the floor?. GIVE ME ANOTHER WELLER AND WATER......At least the dessert was good...

The best and the worst as a kid happened in the same year.  I was about 8 and my mom was cooking Christmas dinner for all our family, both sides.  It was a HUGE turkey and she got up very early to put it in the oven, then once it was cooked, made the gravy, much as Mary, above.  She had the turkey resting on the counter and was cooking the rest of the veggies, potatoes, etc. and thought she would put the gravy in the oven until the other stuff was cooked and she could add the water from the veggies and finish up the gravy.  My dad and I were trying to help as much as possible, we set up the table thru the dining room into the living room - there were about 35 people coming.  She was ready to add to the gravy and wanted to put it back up on top of the stove, now that everything else was done.  She opened the oven, pulled out the rack and the roaster, complete with gravy slid off the back and dumped all over the oven.  It was a huge mess and my mother just started bawling.  Luckily, my dad had put fresh aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven, under the element that morning, and it had been sparkling clean, so he was able o salvage most of the gravy, and we ended up having plenty.  The best part of it was that it was our last big Christmas as a family, with both sides in attendance.  My parents separated the following summer and we never had that kind of Christmas again.  Thus, the best and the worst.

When i was maybe 8 years old or so, we were at my Great Aunts house for Christmas and during dinner the door bell rang and it was a little girl....Come to find out it was my cousins child that he never knew that he had...it was shocking and touching all at the same time...Even tho i was very small i do remember how touching that was...

The worse
Christmas dinner was the year my stove died on me in the middle of cooking dinner.  Thankfully the turkey and ham were done.   I had to load up my bread and few other things and take them up the road to my mother-in-laws' house and finish my cooking.

Whatever went wrong,  Christmas was always a great time.  There was so much love that the minor things were just that minor.

1981 I was stationed in Schwinger Germany then it was still west Germany and our platoon had just finished up what seemed to be a month on border duty,14 hour days of riding in  a open jeep looking at the east German countryside with a meeting of their border guards staring back at  you...well we had a small apartment my wife and i had invited all of the single guys which came to about 18 of them and the rest of the married couples pitched in and helped out with the cooking and baking and the guys brought the wine and  the booze and beer we started eating like at 4pm and we were still telling storys and eating at midnight,,,,that was the best one ever and havent had another since....... HAPPY NEW YEARS ALL
