    I’ll never forget the first Christmas I spent with my wife. There is just something magical about having someone special to spent this time of year with.

  2. Holiday Memory: Ribbon Candy…Nana told me to be careful and not swallow it whole, but I did and almost choked to death!

    I have two elderly (distant) cousins who live not far from the Highland Park Cafeteria and are big fans of the place. They’d love this, and honestly, without this, I’m not sure what they’ll be eating. It would mean a lot to me if they could win this as I’ll be out of town visiting my in-laws this Christmas.

  4. I remember I was about 12 years old and my first Thanksgiving meal that was not cooked at home was at a cafeteria called Morrison’s in Central Florida. I was so worried that it just would not be the same as Mom/Grandma cooking but to my surprise…it was so delicious! When I moved to Texas, I was so elated when I found Highland Park Cafeteria…it brought back those special memories of our first Thanksgiving eating out!

    Some of my favorite memories are of baking with my family. I remember making sugar cookies, peanut butter balls, and lots of other goodies!

    Still don’t have any plan in place for a family of four, so this would be a great Christmas gift to us all. Thank you Crave!

    My favourite holiday memory was the first Christmas with friends and family in the States. Truly appreciated the great time with the loved ones, sharing good food and drinks, playing white elephant and silly games to rewind after a year of hard work.

    My favorite holiday memory is when I was dating my husband, he arranged with my mother to leave the front door unlocked to deliver my gift. I got up and noticed the door unlocked and locked it. He wasn’t able to surprise me.

    One of my favorite Christmas memories is being stranded in the Tokyo airport with my brother on our way back to Dallas to see the family…we ended up having a progressive dinner through almost every restaurant and bar still open at the airport, picking up other stranded travelers along the way. By the time we reached the last place we had almost 20 people with us, eating, drinking, singing, and having a wonderful Christmas! 32 hours later we finally made it back to Dallas just in time for Dad’s birthday on the 26th

  12. Thank you so very much for reminding me about the highland park cafeteria. I’m not going to cook this Christmas because it is going to be so hectic for me. My son and grandson is moving to Oklahoma the day after Christmas. Going to my moms to visit and always take food to her. (shes 83 and gonna LOVE THE FOOD!). Had not realized what a rut I was in 🙂
    Thank you for reminding me if this Texas Tradition I had forgotten!
    Merry Christmas Y’all!

  13. One of my favorite holiday memories was baking cookies with my mom the whole month of December until the freezer got full, then getting to enjoy them with the rest of the family and giving them away as gifts.

    My family would make popcorn (jiffy pop), and string them on thread. We would decorate the Christmas tree with strands of popcorn and lots of those silver icecycles. Then we would go door to door singing Christmas carols for our neighbors. Most of the time they would invite us in for hot chocolate and cookies! Those were the good ole days!

    As a little girl going to Grandma’s and being with Aunts, Uncles and cousins. Now as a grandmother enjoying being with my children, their spouses and my grandchildren. Embrace change and make new memories.
