Well when I was Four. I had that Christmas. You know the one, that always trumps all other Christmas Memories?
Well my folks were never big on decorations or anything we usually didn't have tree either. But the year my Mom started working as a nurse was also the Christmas just before Empire Strikes Back came out.
So I come strolling out of my bedroom on Christmas Morning to find instead of a tree a Pyramid of Presents stacked higher than I was tall... cause I was four.. but still.
I ended up getting The X-Wing, Tie Fighter, At-At, Melenium Falcon, Death Star Playset, the Hoth base Playset, Taun Taun and a crap load of figures.
It took me hours just to unwrap them all and even longer for me and my Dad to put them all together. It was the Christmas of all Christmases and I still hold that memory dear...
Well here is the funny part.. we ended up going over to my Grandmas house for Christmas Dinner and she always did have a tree. So I took a few of my Star Wars Figures with me, strange thing about me even as a kid I always had a fascination with Darth Vader he was always my favorite so of course I took him with me.
We get home later that day and I was playing with the Death Star playset and then all of a sudden I realized I couldn't find Darth Vader... I had a real screaming fit.. My Mom called my Grandma and of course he was not anywhere Grandma could find him either.
So after I calmed down, I decided to think when the last time I had him was.. and I checked the elevator on the Death Star.. and WOLAH there he was... The old Dark Lord was so Dark I couldn't see him inside the elevator because it too was black.
but man was I relieved when I found him.. from then on I left his light saber sticking out so I could find him better.

I have one for the books. This incident happened on my first Christmas with my new wife. I guess I need to give a quick back story to all of this: My dad passed away unexpectedly a few months before and he was going to perform my wedding. My fiance and I decided to go ahead and get married, we figured that's what my pop would have wanted. Well we did and it seemed okay. We decided to move in with my mom until after the holidays to help give her support that she needed. For the holidays we decided (actually the wife decided) that we needed our own place. I was given an ultimatum and the consequences would have been that my wife would leave me. WTF, my dad died and my mom was alone.....anyway we went over to her moms house for a x-mas get to gether..... and the part that pissed me off was my mom was not invited to the event. I thought she was until her mom said she forgot to send out the invite card to mom. I was livid and that is putting it mildly. It seemed that my wife and her mom thought it was best to leave MY mom out of the plans due to her still being upset and they did not want to bring her down. I tore into my wife right there, called my mom and told her to come over. I looked at both and told them that she was comming and not a damn word was to be said.....I still did not understand all of this crap and to this day my EX-WIFE still denise she ever gave an ultimatum or the whole forgetting mom to a Christmas party.

i was at work last night, (I lost my job 3months ago as a pharmacuetical rep and now work at a gas station til I can find work) We were open till 10pm and I was working a short 6pm-10pm shift. My MIL and FIL come over about 7 pm. I was at work, this was awesome( I did not have to hear them talk about me and my job situation). So I thought, my MIL has a few in her and comes to my work(gas station) and starts giving me greif about not having a job and how I work at a gas station. What a wonderful christmas present for me. This was yesterday and my wife had no idea til I got home, she did this after they had left my house around 8:30-8:45. Christmas brings out the joy in everybody.

I went to a dinner with my ex, whose family rents out a church. Well, I did some exploring, and discovered that some of the upstairs rooms have, underneath bad wall-paper, padded walls, and all the rooms have heavy metal doors and little holes in them. Them I realized that the cafeteria where we were eating was surrounded by rooms above with holes to look down on them. The "eating room" was an observation room, and this church was once a sanitarium.

i deleted my story from this thread. It was long, thought out and punctuated correctly. (or atleast mostly)
for allowing me to share personal info and, real life experiences am i supposed to say thank you to the op here? or what?
not exactly sure what this dude was looking for but, congrats to those who won. btw my story was a first person occurence which happened to me and, was completely true. thank You!
p.s. it would be interesting to find out why my story was not worthy of a wild bill??
