    My two sisters and I always were together growing up, but they are significantly older than I am (their children are actually my age)! I live close to my one sister and her family, but my other sister in NJ stays there to be with her children and grandchildren. I would love if we could all be together, but so glad for pictures, and FaceTime and Facebook :)!

    Jen Carter says:

    I would choose my brothers family. Most of my family lives close by. He is the only one that lives farther away!

    I’d love to have my sister who is currently in Hong Kong here for Christmas.

    Melissa S. says:

    I don’t have family that lives far away that I am close to and with whom I would want to spend the holidays. Great release. Love the barnyard set and Dawn’s Valentine and wedding sets. The new planner looks great. Might have to try it in 2017.

    Kathy W says:

    All of my family lives 3,000 miles away…I would spend the holidays with my son.

    Isabel Z says:

    My extended family in Spain because I haven’t seen them in 37 years.

  • 7
    Melissa S. says:

    All of my immediate family lives fairly close, so I would choose to spend the holidays with my two great aunts, who are both in their nineties. They are amazing women and I have grown up being pretty close to both of them. They are the only siblings left of my grandpa’s. I lost my grandpa 26 years ago, so when I get to spend time with them it makes me feel close to him.

    Shanna says:

    Honestly, I would see my whole family back in California. I moved to South Carolina a few years ago and now that I have two children, flying back is way out of our budget, and driving costs about $600 or more and takes 3 days with two little ones. I would love to go back and see them and take my kids as we only see my family via Skype. I know my family would be extremely happy to be my kids in person (last time they saw my kids my daughter was 2 1/2 and my son was a newborn). So I would love to just share my little family with my big family and spend time together. I am just thankful we can at least Skype so my kids know who their family is 🙂

    Karen says:

    I feel so fortunate to have all of my loved ones close by to where I live, so there is no need for wishing for that. I am lucky to have my mom and dad, and my brother and his family all within 45 minutes. Makes it easy to get together. I’m also blessed with a couple of extremely close friends who live just minutes away. I have so much for which to be thankful.

    This has been a beautiful release. The floral wrap set was a big surprise to me – I just love that one based on all of the samples by the design team. But my favorite, by far, is the Petite Places Barnyard. Living in Amish country, one just have to travel for minutes to see multiple beautiful barns. That set has to come home to me!

    I’d love to see my son and his new wife; they live in another state and I have not seen him at holiday time for many years.

  • 11
    Seldeyak says:

    I am fortunate to live near all my immediate family, but every year for the past five years, especially around holidays, we continue to miss the presence of my brother. He was killed in Iraq while serving for the US Army. His spirit still lingers though!

  • 12
    Liz mcallister says:

    My entire family is always together, we are lucky. This year my niece is expecting so she won’t be able to come home. I’d love to see her, but I think she should stay at home ready for her family to grow

  • 13

    I would love for every family for everyside of everyones family to come together in one spot… that would be amazing.

  • 14
    carab says:

    All of my immediate family are local. My aunt and uncle who live in Florida lost their youngest daughter last year so I would choose to spend time with them.

    I am blessed to have all my loved ones close by.

    Diane Oliver says:

    My Grandkids … Always.
    They live out of state and now that they are older it’s harder and harder to afford the airfare. However … they ARE coming this year! First time in FOUR YEARS they will be here for Christmas! Can’t Wait.

    Lisa Schenck says:

    I would choose to spend the Holidays with my Mother-in-Law and Father-in-Law. We used to spend every Christmas with them for 17 years, but then we moved to Ohio & don’t see them very often, as they are 500 miles away.

  • 18
    Shelly Kettell says:

    If only we could reach heaven…my sister whom I lost in a car accident 5 years ago – seems like yesterday! But since that is not going to happen, My MOM! She lives in the next state over, a 6 hour drive and it’s not easy. I love her and miss her and we always have fun together! My kids would agree because Grandma makes it fun!!
    Great Release!

  • 19
    Lizzie T says:

    Most of my family is close by but my sister is about 2 1/2 hours away. I’d love to spend Christmas with her and my niece – we see them at Thanksgiving and a then couple of weeks before Christmas and THEN we don’t get to see her until Easter!!!

  • 20
    JeanFB says:

    All of us cousins are spread out all over the country – I would love to go back to the small town in Pennsylvania where we all grew up and spend the holidays together just like we did when we were kids.

  • 21
    Linda C says:

    I would love to spend Christmas with my brother. We haven’t spent a Christmas together since I moved to NC 29 years ago.

  • 22
    Betty says:

    i am very lucky as i spend my christmas with my son and his family in england nearly every year – but if my other son and my daughter could all be there some year that would be the best!

  • 23
    Yvonne F. says:

    Most of my family is close by but I like to see my aunt from the USA. Every 2 years she came to visit us, but now she´s to old, so she could not come to germany anymore. I’d love to spend Christmas with her and the rest of the familiy

  • 24
    Michele H. says:

    Every year, my sister and brother and I all try to head to my Dad’s house for Christmas. It’s the one time of the year we are all together, since we all live in different parts of the country. It’s a huge effort to arrange all the details (work, travel, expense) but it’s important to us, even more so since losing my mother to breast cancer. We try our best to celebrate all the old family traditions we grew up with, and hold on to our family just a little bit longer every year.
    Holiday Hugs,
    Michele

    I would spend it with my mother – heaven is much too far away, especially during the holidays

  • 27
    Melanie A. says:

    My cousins in New Jersey. I don’t get to see them often enough and I would love to see the little one’s excitement Christmas Day.

  • 28
    Polly says:

    I finally have my close family all in the same area so I’ll be spending the holidays with them. I’m very blessed.

  • 29
    Sallie says:

    My 98 year-old aunt who lives over 500 miles away. She is alone with no family nearby. Her retirement community does try to fill the void, but it is not the same.

  • 30
    Amanda says:

    I have DH and my kids and that’s enough of a blessing for me.

  • 31
    see mary stamp says:

    I’m blessed that so much of my family lives close by, however my older brother has lived in Texas for many years (I’m in Illinois) and we haven’t spent a Christmas holiday together in ages and my younger brother just relocated back to California, so I’d say getting all of my siblings together for a family holiday gathering would be great.

  • 32
    Dana Kirby says:

    I would love to spend Christmas with all of my cousins. As our families have grown there is just too many of us. But it did make for some fun memories when we were young children. Thanks PTI for another great release. I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas!

  • 33
    Carolyn Picken says:

    I am doing that very thing. I live I. Florida and I am up north visiting my kids and grandkids. I haven’t done this for several years, so it is special. Great release, so manychoices

  • 34
    Shelley says:

    Fortunately, my family is close together and we are able to see one another most holidays. I’d love to spend time this season with some of my college girlfriends who I rarely see these days now that we have moved away and most have families of our own.

  • 35
    Stacy Simpson says:

    My nieces who are 5 and 7 years old. They moved from MO to FL this past summer. Christmas won’t be the same without them. I’m going to miss their squeals of delight while opening presents Christmas Day.

  • 36
    GayleWI says:

    I’m very blessed to have all of my family, except 1, within 2 hrs of me. My daughter lives 7½ hrs. away and I would love to spend the holidays with her. She is home this week so we’ve already celebrated Christmas but to be with her on Christmas Day would be magical.

  • 37
    Carrie_Crafts says:

    If I could visit my dad for the holidays that would be wonderful. He was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic melanoma over Thanksgiving. It’s the rarest and most deadly form of melanoma, spreading to all parts of the body, not just the skin. I just hate to think this could be his last Christmas to celebrate. So, visiting my dad over the holidays would be wonderful.

  • 38
    carol says:

    Last year, from December 20-30th, my dad was in intensive care; he passed away on the 30th – my parents’ 56th anniversary. Spending Christmas with my mom and family, who live far away (in my opinion…5 hours drive), means the world to me this year. Thank you for the gift certificate opportunity…

    I would love to spend Christmas with my younger brother who lives in France.

    Donna Gourley says:

    My sister-in-law lives in Japan (and has for many, many years). We only see her and her husband every few years when they make a trip to the U.S. Even though I would be mortified to visit them, I’m sure it would be an exciting trip.

  • 41
    Pat H says:

    Heaven counts as a far away place, and I would spend the holiday with my parents and my favorite aunt who have all passed away.

  • 42
    maryrose says:

    Whenever I have the opportunity, I always go home to my mother. Moms are special!

  • 43

    I would love to spend one more Christmas with my sweet MIL. She is in a residence now and in Canada. We are in Texas…

  • 44
    Kelly Flaherty says:

    My Uncle Ivan, who is a Catholic monk in a monastery in Utah. As a monk, they are very restricted as to how many times they can leave. The last time I saw him was in 1997 when he came to Charleston to be with my father, his brother, as he was dying. When you are with Father Malachy you FEEL completely enveloped by the Spirit of Christ, you just know you are in the presence of a true holy man.

  • 45
    Kristina says:

    I would love to spend Christmas with my brother who passed away. I want to know how he’s doing on the other side. I miss him.

  • 46
    karen b says:

    My cousin Melanie. We used to live near her and have moved away. We were best friends and I miss her smile and spirit.

  • 47
    Debbie Vasel says:

    I would love to travel to Canada to be with our daughter and her family.
    We have not been there in many years and I would just love to spend Christmas
    with the grandchildren there. I would also get to go to Niagara Falls on the way.

  • 48
    Janelle says:

    I would choose to spend the holidays with my brother and his family who live on the east coast (I’m in AZ). We haven’t seen my niece and nephew for 2 years and although we skype, I would really just love to hug them and give them their presents in person. They are 4 and 6 years old and my own kids (9 and 11yrs) have a special bond with them. They are only young for a short amount of time.

  • 49
    Darla says:

    Absolutely all of my family lives far away… sad I know. The happy news is that I get to go see my 2 month old grandson for Christmas!

  • 50
    Wendy Hoff says:

    My mom and dad. I hate being so far away from them.

  • 51
    Monika Davis says:

    It would be my mom who lives in Hungary. She is all alone now so it would be nice to have her around… especially while the kids are young.

  • 52
    Penelope T says:

    I have a dear friend in North Yorkshire who I can only dream of spending the holidays with. In recent years she has survived breast cancer and a very serious form of leukemia. I dream of us doing all the typical British holiday customs, including having a Christmas tea at Bretty’s in York, shopping at M & S, and taking in a pantomime….all amid a light dusting of snow.

  • 53
    Vikki H says:

    I have a sister who I haven’t seen in 23 years and who will not call either. She refuses to keep in contact with anyone of our family except a cousin. I would love to hug her & tell her about her nephews and great-nephews. It would be my best gift ever.

  • 54
    S. Molinari says:

    I’d like to visit with my cousin and her daughter. They are both creative people and I’d love to share some fun crafty time with them, anytime of the year.

  • 55
    Jennifer K says:

    Most of my family lives within a 4-hour drive. However, one of my brothers lives in Colorado and I really hope he comes home for Christmas – haven’t seen him in ages! Great release!

  • 56
    Laine says:

    My family would love to spend it with my stepson that lives several states away. We normally only get to see him during the summer months.

  • 57
    Holly Saveur says:

    I would choose Wanda..my very sweet Penpal from Californie….we have never met in real..only by email and cards(I live in the Netherlands)…met her by PTI and the card she posted on her blog…I left a comment and that’s how it got started…many years ago..
    Would love to meet her in real…and spend time chating face to face…its my biggest wish..

  • 58
    Kathy says:

    Wouldn’t it be great to go back in time and spend one more Christmas as a child… to be with my parents and siblings… to experience that Christmas wonder as a child just one more time?

  • 59
    abrash says:

    Most of my family is close but would love to see a great friend who lives in Texas!

    jengd says:

    My mom. Not going for heartstrings but she died early this morning and I wish she was here and healthy.

  • 61
    GinaEgg says:

    Thankfully all of my immediate and extended family live within 50 miles of here. I would love for my mother-in-law to be with us at Christmas — though it might scare her a little bit since my family is a little bit Christmas-crazy. 🙂 I know my kids would love to spend the holiday with BOTH of their grandmothers.

  • 62

    Stunning and beautiful creations! I love the entire release as well as the planner! To answer the question I’d say this kinda counts as Heaven is pretty far away, so I would want to spend the holidays with my Dad. He passed away about 14 years ago and is the only loved one I miss not only during the holidays but everyday!

  • 63
    Jacquie says:

    I would spend it with my sister. She’s far away and I miss her.

  • 64
    Cindy C says:

    Does Heaven count as far away? I would give anything to spend it with my mother

  • 65
    chris g. says:

    I would choose my American exchange family with whom I spent such a great time.

  • 66
    Sue D says:

    I would choose my sister and her family. We only see each other a few times a year.

  • 67
    Dee says:

    Our son and his family moved to the Twin Cities a few months ago. It’s been tough not having them around every week for our family dinners. Weather permitting we hope to travel to see them for the holidays!

  • 68
    Marianne says:

    I would love to spend it with my sister in Norway. We both emigrated from the Netherlands (I live in Crete, Greece) but I feel more close to her than to most of my other brothers and sisters in the Netherlands.

  • 69
    Jenny says:

    For the first time in my life, I won’t be sharing Christmas with my brother. Due to work stuff, he and his wife can’t make it back for the holiday’s this year. It hadn’t occured to me until just now that this will be the first one without him. Now I’m a little more bummed about it than I was. At least we still have facetime!

  • 70

    I would choose to spend this holiday with my dad as he just passed away on Dec 11, my heart is breaking and the thought of him not being with us this Christmas is very difficult.

  • 71
    Birgit says:

    I would choose my daughter`s family from Haiti to celebrate with us in Europe. We don`t know where they are so it`s another Christmas without them.

  • 72
    Lori Campbell says:

    That would have to be my brother, sister-in-law and 2 nephews. I’m in Ontario and they’re in Alberta. We do open presents by Skype each year but it’s not the same as being together!

  • 73
    SabineVDK says:

    If I could, I would love to spend Christmas with my family in Germany, mainly my cousin. I saw her this past spring for the first time in 15 years and it was fabulous!

  • 74
    April W says:

    I would choose my best friend Cathy. Right now she’s living in Japan and we haven’t seen each other for about 3 years! I miss her terribly and would love to spend Christmas with her…

    LindaCC says:

    Would love to spend Christmas with our special friends in Leh, India!

  • 76

    My dear friend of 36 years lives in Germany. It would be so magical if we were able to spend Christmas with her! Since her birthday is on New Year’s Day, of course we would have to stay to celebrate together. Just dreaming… ♡

  • 77
    Linda R. says:

    I have the good fortune of having my immediate family home for Christmas, but my Aunt’s children are scattered all over the country. When we were children, we were so close. I wish we could all be together again for those wonderful Christmas dinners. Cousins are the best!

  • 78
    Erin says:

    I would chose my husband’s family. They all live in India and we only get to see them every other year. It would be great to have them here to see how we celebrate the holidays (and see snow for the first time!)

  • 79
    Jenni Sinor says:

    My stepmom in Kentucky! She has had a rough year and it would be great to give her a big hug!

  • 80
    Kimberly O. says:

    I would love to be able to spend Christmas with my brother and his family. They don’t come home for the holidays due to the fact that his kids are all grown (some with little kids or others in college, etc.). My husband and I alternate holidays with our parents, so it just wouldn’t work to add in more family rotations. My husband’s sister and her family do fly in every year, but they don’t rotate with between parents, so it is kind of hit-or-miss with them, even though both sets of their parents live about 10 miles away. Anyhow, I’d like to spend Christmas with my parents AND my brother (and his family) more often.

  • 81
    Jan G says:

    I would choose my daughter and her family. I don’t get to see them very often because she lives so far away.

  • 82
    cindy says:

    I am lucky to have all of my family nearby!

  • 83
    Amber P says:

    My two oldest nieces (24 & 18) and my great nephew (3) live in Arizona (I’m in Illinois) and they usually come home for Christmas. However, this year they can’t make it home and my parents are going to AZ to spend Christmas with them. I also won’t get to see my next two oldest niece (11) and nephew (13) because of custody issues. So it’s going to be a pretty disappointing holiday for me this year. What’s Christmas without the kids to make it magical? At least I’ll still have my son (15) and my youngest niece (6). It won’t be the same with out the other five kids, but we’ll make the best of it. Maybe next year, right?

  • 84
    Nancy M. says:

    I would spend it baking with my good friend who moved across the U.S. Years ago!

  • 85
    Birgit says:

    Well, I would choose two family members. My son, who is living in another state and we haven’t been able to spend Christmas with him in the last two years, and also my mom, who passed away in May of this year.

  • 86
    Mary Rose Brayton says:

    I would spend the holidays with my cousin Chuck. Growing up we were like brother and sister. Over the past thirty years, I have only seen him 5 times, and with the exception of visiting him in Florida, the other times were very brief – less than 24 hours. Makes me think I should give him a call and do better to keep in touch!

  • 87
    Jeni says:

    My Dad & my husband’s father both died this year. I would love to be able to spend the holidays with them.

    Otherwise, all of our other family lives close so we are able to see them all.

  • 88
    Pam Sparks says:

    We are so fortunate that family we are closest to, live close enough that we get to see them often. Fabulous ‘love’ release and great question! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 89
    Betty says:

    I would love to share Christmas with a family who helped me raise my 4 children while I was working. They are amazing people and we love them so much and are so grateful to have them in our lives!!!

  • 90
    Kimberly Russell says:

    MY High School Best Friend. We live 10 hours apart and I rarely get to see her!

  • 91
    Mary W says:

    Heaven is as far away as I know. I would choose to spend Christmas with him so he could see how his son and his daughter live today – he would be so proud. Then to add to his happiness, he could meet his 5 grand kids that I know he would be teasing and playing with and listening to them. He was a master story teller and he could hear how they inherited that charm and find out all the things that are important to them. They would discover for themselves why he lit up a room with his laughter and how important it is – it would be a wonderful gift to them and to all those he left behind. It would NOT be a sad time but a wonderful experience that would light all our lives with the miracle of the circle of life, laughter, and love.

  • 92
    Barbara Campbell says:

    I would choose to spend the holidays with my son and daughter-in-law. I only get to see them twice a year and never for a holiday.

  • 93

    Last year my answer would have been SOOO different. Our son and his new wife were living about 4 hrs away and the visits were too far between and too short.

    But they moved “home” in July of this year (now it is less than a 10 minute drive). While it is “home” for him, I know she misses her family and try to show her everyday how much we love her for choosing to establish roots here.

  • 94
    joan k says:

    My brother and sister. It has been many, many years since we celebrated Christmas together!

  • 95
    Pat A. says:

    My son and grandson who live in Seattle. We miss them so much always, but especially at Christmas.

  • 96
    Rita says:

    Most of my family lives within traveling distance and will be together for the holidays. I would love to spend Christmas with my sister-by-heart and best friend, Dianne, though. It’s hard to be away from her, especially during the holidays.

  • 97
    Cindy O says:

    My brother and sister-in-law! We enjoy spending time together (including my husband), and my SIL has just started stamping, so the crafty playtime would make it even more fun for us.

  • 98

    All my family lives in the same city.But I would love to have with us a couple of friends that we love so much and leaves far from us.

    Bev T says:

    My daughter and granddaughter.

    It would be wonderful to have my mom and her hubby who live in Idaho stay with us in Illinois for Christmas!

  • 101
    Deborah Wilson says:

    I am very fortunate to have all my family close enough to visit. I do,however, have friends far away that I would love to have visit for the holidays.

  • 102
    Melanie P says:

    I would spend with my sister and her family who live in Maryland. It is so expensive to travel with a family so we don’t always get to spend much time together. It would definitely be fun to open up gifts with our kids together on Christmas morning.

  • 103
    Colleen B. says:

    I am beyond thrilled to be spending the holidays with my twin sister! It has been 15 years since we’ve been able to celebrate Christmas together.

  • 104
    Mary W says:

    My husband was only 48 when a silent heart attack took him from us 24 years ago. He lived each day fully – reminder to all of us to copy.

    Becky Green says:

    GORGEOUS CREATIONS! For SOME REASON, I haven’t been getting my e-mails from you. 🙁 So, when I discovered this & remedied it! Here I am! 😉

    As for your question, I would spend my time with my Grandparents. I only remember having ONE Christmas with them when I was growing up. Being older now, I have MANY QUESTIONS!!!! 😉

  • 107

    My daughter lives on the other side of the country, so hands down I would wish to spend the holiday with her. We talk often but don’t see each other nearly enough.

  • 108

    My Mom, 90, has 2 grandsons that are almost 4. She has not seen them since they were around 2. I would love for her to see them at Christmas.

    My husband is in the military, so it seems we are always so far from our families. The holidays are so special for us because sometimes it is our only chance to go home. I miss my mom and sister every single day! Thank goodness for FaceTime! I am so excited and counting down the days until we make the LONG drive from KC to Dallas. Happy holidays!!

    I would spend the holidays with my daughter, who is a first year medical resident in Denver. She has none of the holidays off and cares for patients instead.

    Jaelynn Haws says:

    I would spend the. Holidays with my oldest son and his family and my daughter and her family. They both live in Salt Lake City and we live in Ohio. We very rarely get to see them over the holidays. We have a large family and five of my seven children live in Ohio so we get to be with them but miss the others. I would also have my mother, who lives in Idaho, come to Utah to spend time with us.

    Tammy says:

    I would choose my Aunt Helen that lives in Nevada because she is my dad’s only sister and I have only gotten to see her a few times in my life and she is reaching that age of maybe not being around much longer. I would love to get to know her a little better.

    Melissa Friedrich says:

    I would love to head back to my hometown where my mom is, in Pittsburgh PA. That being said, all my kids are coming to my house for Christmas so that is even better! I just wish we all could head to Pittsburgh.

    Natasha says:

    I am lucky in that all my family is relatively close. My brother and sister-in-law are in Toronto so it’s always nice to see them. Fortunately this year they are making the trip to Winnipeg to join the rest of the family for Christmas 🙂 I can’t really choose anyone over anyone else, it feels best when everyone is there. We have a lot of fun together.

  • 115

    Well, I would see my Aunt Virgie. She is 84 and sharp as a tack, she recently lost my uncle. They were married for 65 years….first loves…life loves…..the cutest couple on the planet. This is her first holiday without him. She has her children around her so she is not alone…but I love spending time with her.

  • 116
    Naomi G. says:

    I would definitely choose my two cousins who live on the other side of the country. We all grew up together in a small town, going to the same elementary school and high school but, they moved away 15 years ago when we were 14-17 yrs old and while we’ve remained close, we definitely do not see each other nearly enough. They now have their own children..one of whom I have yet to meet and it would be so amazing to spend Christmas with them and their children!

    PS: LOVE this release…especially the Valentine’s Pin-ups, Petite Places, and the new Moments Inked Binder!

    We usually spend every Christmas with our daughter & family in NJ, but this year I have breast cancer & taking chemo, so they are coming to spend Christmas at our home in VA. There is nothing any better than being together with your loved ones during the holidays!

  • 122

    Most of my family is very close so I’m fortunate. However I do have a girlfriend who is more like a sister to me than a friend. I would love to spend the holidays with her and her family. We only get to see them once and a year and it would be such a treat to spend more time with them!

    I would spend the holidays with my grandmother. She will be 90 in January and may not have too many holiday seasons left. I will be making a trip to see her in September next year,but it’s not the same. Great release!!

  • 127

    Well fortunately I live CLOSE to Most of my Family and we’re able to spend the Holidays together EVERY YEAR!! Both my S-I-L and her Family and my Uncle (my Moms Brother) are the only main Family members who live FAR away and who we only see once a Year!! So if I could I WOULD LOVE to have them and their Families HOME for the Holidays to Spend with us and to Celebrate my Dads Birthday on the Christmas Eve!! THANKS for the chance to WIN and have a FABULOUS Release Week!! =)

    Christine Nixon says:

    I would spend it with my brother. He lives in California and we only get together about once every 4-5 years. None of us are getting any younger or richer and the trip across the United States is getting harder to make. It would be wonderful if my sisters and I could visit with him but it won’t happen this year.

  • 129
    Colleen F says:

    My family is very close to me, but if I had to pick a far away person, I would select my husband’s cousin who lives in Norway. She spent a year here in the states and we became fast friends! I would love to see Norway during the holidays!

  • 135
    betsy l. says:

    I would spend it with my grandparents who live in Hong Kong. My family moved to the US when I was very young. But before we moved, we would have my grandparents over almost every other day. Grandpa will always take my sisters and I to the park to play whenever possible. Grandma will always spoil us in front of mom & dad. They’re getting older and have difficulties in traveling far. I’d love to spend the holidays with them (if I had the money to afford the trip).

  • 136
    merryf says:

    I would love to spend a night of Hanukkah with my brother and his family — they’re in Florida and I’m in NJ and we don’t see each other very much, unfortunately. I would love to do Hanukkah crafts with my preteen nieces and be there when they light their menorah, which belonged to my parents who have both passed away.

  • 137
    JanetB says:

    What a great question! I love reading the comments and thinking about my answer. I’m lucky to have my children live in the same small town where I live, and we always spend the Holidays together. My siblings, two sisters and a brother, live about 600 miles away, so I would like to have all of us together with all the nieces and nephews and grandchildren. That would be very Merry!

    Shelly Greybeck says:

    I would spend the holidays with my children and grandchildren. In September of this year, I accepted a new job about 6 hours away from home in a town my husband and I wanted to retire to someday. To make the dream a reality, I found a job and moved over leaving my husband, children, grandchildren, family, friends and home behind. My husband stayed behind to get our home of 21 years ready to sell in spring. I will be seeing him at Christmas as he will drive over a snow covered pass to visit for 2 weeks. This will be the first Christmas in 26 years, or ever, that I will not have my children with me.

  • 140
    Tammie Koehnen says:

    My daughter, because she lives 1700 miles away. And having her home just feels like Christmas!

    If I could, I would put all the new people who have come to mean so much to me this year together with all of the people already in my life and my family members wherever they are, on earth or in heaven in one big room and sit down and talk with them or just be quiet with them and somehow show love and hospitality to them.

  • 145
    Lori B says:

    Our son & his family just moved & won’t be able to come home for Christmas. I would love to be there to see our grandkids open their presents. One of my favorite times of the holidays is watching the excitement of the little ones! I will very much miss that.

  • 146

    I would visit my in-laws in Florida. I hit the jackpot with my MIL – she is the most loving, gracious, and caring woman I know. My FIL has Alzheimers and he’s reached a point where he can no longer be left unattended and they finally met with health care providers this week to make arrangements for someone to come to the house three times/week. My MIL has been putting this off because I think she knows in her heart that this marks the first step in the last stage of her journey with my FIL. Their courtship has been going on for over 60 years, and my heart aches for her. So I’d like to go there for the holidays and visit with them both while he’s still enjoying some lucidity.

  • 147
    Meagan says:

    I’m very lucky this year because that one person that lives far away, my sister, is actually coming for Christmas this year!! There will be a whole lot of crafting going on!

    Deb H says:

    I would love to bring my nephew and his family here to share Christmas with all of us.
    Then we would all go over to visit his 93 yr. grandmother (she doesn’t travel). It would be wonderful.

  • 149
    Sandy says:

    Probably my brother Jerry and his wife. Jerry and I lost our dad this year and his wife lost her mom, so it will be a difficult holiday for all of us but especially for them because they will be alone 🙁 Their work schedules don’t allow them to travel for the holidays.

    Nancy Penir says:

    This Christmas, thank God, we are all together, all being our family of 5 children and their children. There is no place like home for the holidays (isn’t that a song?), comfortable, warm and familiar. There’s always extended family in other states, but Christmas is best home!

    Any of my children; the closest one is six hours away and the farthest one is across the country. We all could use a big hug and some time together.

    I would choose one of my best friends forever. I met her while working in Australie in 1989.(I live in the Netherlands) Since then we have seen each other several times, even with Christmas. But it has been way too long since we celebrated Christmas together. So i would pick Sue. X

    My sister. She only lives about 5 hours away, but we don’t get to see each other as much as we would like.

We chat on the phone but our crafty time together doesn’t come very often. We grew up together and have always been close. I am child #4 and she is #5 out of 6 kids and we are all spread out over 21 years.

    My brother moved to Texas about 5 years ago, and I’ve only seen him twice since then. I would love to spend the holidays with him again. Thank you for all the lovely inspiration this week. I’m eager to have and use my new PTI supplies!

    I would choose my brother and his family who live in Montreal because they are so fun! We spent a week with them this past summer and it just wasn’t long enough!

    My sister who is a couple thousand miles from me. And, as it just so happens, her and her family along with my brother and most of his family will be together at my house this year!! A bonus, my husbands brother and SIL leave here in town, so we will have quite a crowd!!

  • 245

    I am very blessed to have all of my family living close to me. We always celebrate Christmas together – my husband and our three children, my parents, my husband’s dad and step-mother, and my brother and his wife. It’s a wonderful time of gift giving and enjoying a delicious meal. However, the best part is the love we share with one another. For that, I am truly thankful!

    My sister in TN. We get to see each other only a couple of times a year but never at Christmas. This is such a special time of year to celebrate Christ’s birth and sharing that with her would be wonderful!

  • 257
    Amy A. says:

    My family has all been spread out (different states) for sometime now. That and I am the youngest by far (15, 18 and 20 years between myself and sibs). Our parents have passed on. I think I feel bad for my own children because they never really had much family around – aunts/uncles/cousins/grandparents as they were growing up. My husband’s side of the family is pretty spread out too and no cousins close to my kids’ ages. In the perfect world, I wish I could open our home and have everyone here for the holidays. Maybe one day I will figure out a way to make that work.

  • 258

    All of my immediate family…and a lot of my extended… live close by so I’m lucky in that I get to spend holidays with them already.

  • 266
    Karen says:

    My daughter and her family. She’s a pastor and can never get away during the Christmas season. We have lots of family here, so we miss Christmas Day with her and her family. We’ll see her after the holiday, but I’d love to have everyone together in the same place.

  • 267
    Tammy W says:

    Since all of our family is 1,000 miles away, it would be all of them at once if we were to go home for the holidays. Which we haven’t done in many years.

    Well, this year I’m lucky to be able to spend Christmas with my grandchildren in Colorado, so all my children and grandchildren will be together.

  • 269

    Like quite a few of your following, I too am fortunate to have most of my small family fairly close to me.
    I do often think of my nephew and his family who are several hours away, especially at the Christmas time as their eldest son was tragically murdered and their loss is so great it is impossible to comprehend. I would like to spend some time with them to help comfort and ease their grief.

  • 270
    Sandy S. says:

    My children and I only spend every other Christmas together; the alternate years they go to the in-laws. It would be nice to see them every Christmas, but I need to share them!

    My brother and his family. We have never been able to celebrate Christmas with him and his family with him recently being in the air force and living far away from us. xoxo

    I am fortunate that older sister is only an hour away, so she and her husband spend every Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with us.

  • 275

    My mom! She moved back home a few years ago to care for her elderly mother (my grandma) and spends her holidays with her family there.

    I would want to spend Christmas with my dad. I moved to TX from Canada 8 years ago, so I haven’t seen him or my mom and siblings in a very long time. I miss “Christmas Eve at Dad’s house” 🙂

    Trish M says:

    I would like to spend the time with my 6 sisters who all live in Vermont…My oldest sister has recently been in and out of the hospital, very near hospice… she gets a little better, then relapses… COPD and on oxygen…. I have a twin sister who is special needs (Dr’s didn’t think she’d make 6 months) …we turn 62 this Friday…. my other sisters are pretty healthy…. would be nice to get together…. we also have 5 brothers spread all over the US….would love to spend time with them as well…. Grateful beyond belief to have a huge family…. just wish we were all closer…. I live in Colorado.

  • 282
    Janice Marcham says:

    I would have to say my brother and his family. They moved to Florida many years ago when his children were little and we have not been able to have a Christmas with all of them for many years. Now they are all scattered around the country, so it’s even harder.

  • 283

    Lynn Gauthier says:

    My Niece Amy and her family. We were unable to have children and she is also my God Daughter…so she is the closet to a daughter than I will ever have. She lives in NY. And , I haven’t seen her in 9 years but we talk on the phone at least once a week.

  • 285
    Nancy M says:

    I’m grateful that I get to spend Christmas with my daughter, but it would be fun if we could go to Ohio for the holidays and have time with our family (my in-laws) there. Four generations gather and it would bring back some of the magic of sharing Christmas through the eyes of a child once again.

  • 286
    OmaGloria says:

    I would spend the holiday with my very dear friend Patty. She lives in Hawaii and I am in Nebraska. We became friends when I sold her some books on ebay 11 years ago. We have never met in person but have such a close bond. My grandson and her great nephew were born on the same day. We have exchanged gifts, share the same interests and have never lost touch. It would be a dream come true to finally see her in person. Loved ones are not always blood related and Patty is a very much a Loved One.

  • 287
    Susan G says:

    Almost impossible to choose. I’m in Cleveland Ohio. My sister and family are in Seattle. My son and his family are in Snohomish WA. My daughter and her family are in Idaho. I guess I could just head west and try to find a midpoint. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  • 288
    robi says:

    My family is small, and lucky for me most of them live close to me. But I would spend more time with my cousin who lives on the opposite coast as I do … even though we grew up 3,000 miles away, we always remained close.

  • 289
    Tracy says:

    This was hard this year, because I would say my family, as every other year we either visit my family in MN, or stay home and celebrate with my husband’s family,and this year is a stay here year, but my mom is coming here this year- first time ever for a Christmas holiday, so I am lucky.
    But I will say my brothers and family who will be in MN.

    I am blessed enough that all my family lives within a 2 – 3 hour distance, so I will be able to see all my family this Christmas. We have one grandchild that lives 2 hours away, and that is far enough! My heart breaks for all the long distance grandparents out there…I need my Addy fix every few weeks!! :0)

While working on this years December Daily, I have added “throw-back” photos from the wonderful Christmas’ we spent together “up north” with daily photos taken here at the Gulf of Mexico.

  • 314
    Heather LaBudde says:

    If I could spend the Christmas with a loved one, it would be with my dearly departed dad in Heaven for just a day( if I were allowed). I would be with a man who is now fully healed both mentally and physically, and with whom I could share hugs that were meaningful . He would KNOW/recognize me again!

    He y my regrets on his shoulder( which would be strong and able to stand my weight), and his wonderful voice would probably say ” now, now, daughter” and I would look
    at him when my tears finally cleared and tell him I never told him I loved him enough while he was with me, and he would let me know that he knew I always did.
    My dad was my first love, of course, which is probably true for most daughters, so I would want to be with Daddy and share all the things in my life that he has not been here to witness.
    I would want to be with him once more, to step back in time almost, but with current circumstances prevailing…to share with a glad ear that was only listening to everything that I had to tell.

  • 315

  • 321
    Loly Borda says:

    That’s an easy question! I would spend the Holidays with my son, who lives in Argentina and I haven’t seen him since November 2014. It’s so hard to be away for that long, especially because Christmas is so special for both of us. His dad died when he was 2 years old,(he is now 28) so many Christmases growing up, it was just the two of us, but it never felt lonely because we had each other.
    I wish I could afford to go there or bring him here to be together. Thanks for the chance!

    My cousin and I always used to spend the holidays together. My aunt and uncle would travel with their girls from PA to IL every year to spend the holidays with our grandparents and my family, and since she has had her son, she spends the holidays with her own family. Those holidays spent together are some of my happiest childhood (and young adult) memories. I’m hoping that, one year, we can all get together again for the holidays with our own children.

  • 346

We always feed on each other’s energy in getting on track with our goals, personal and professional…and of course the hilarious Laughs we share.

    My friend Caroline and her family. I have visited them every year in the summer for over 10 years now. I didn’t get a chance to visit this year and am sad that by the time I see them again it will have been 2 years since we last saw each other.

    C. Nicklas says:

    I am truly blessed this year to be able to be with all my family members – brother, parents and extended family on both sides. So grateful!

    Jamie Greene says:

    Currently we do not have any family near us so honestly it would be nice to be with anyone and everyone in our family on Christmas.

  • 358
    Susan W. says:

    I only have one older brother with both of our parents gone. He lives in the San Francisco area (me in Southern CA) but we can never get together much over a year. We both have children that have grown up and flown from the nest. Christmas is a wonderful time of the year to get together to re-live old memories and make new ones. I wish we could spend more Christmas holidays together.

    Most of my family is close by, which I am grateful for, but I wish I could transport all of us to visit my late brother’s family who are far away.

    F Bond says:

    The loved one that I would like to come is my mother in law. She has never been to our home and I would love for her to come. I believe she would really enjoy herself. She still works and most of her family is in her area. I would like her to take a vacation at our home.

  • 362
    Margaret C says:

    I’m lucky all my family live within 2 hours, but I’d love to have Christmas with my mother-in-law who passed away before my DD was born.

    Marilyn in Michigan says:

    I’m lucky that most of my family lives in Michigan. I would love to spend the holidays with my cousin who lives in Topeka (or her daughter and family who live in Germany). I haven’t been able to connect with her when she visits her siblings in Michigan for the past few years for one reason or another.

  • 366
    Nancy S says:

    I would choose all my high school friends who I haven’t seen in a really long time (some 30+ years). We keep touch via Facebook but have not seen each other and our children. After losing a dear family friend suddenly I have made it a point to make time to see old friends when I can.

  • 367
    Kristii says:

    I would choose my sister who lives in Arizona. Since I live in Montana, Arizona isn’t close enough for us to visit very often. In fact it’s been nearly 10 years since I have seen her. ! We have grown closer despite the miles between us in the past year and it would be absolutely amazing to spend the holidays with her!

  • 368
    Mendi Yoshikawa says:

    Such a lovely release! If I could spend the holidays with a loved one far away I would love to spend it with my best friend and her family that have been serving as teachers in Ethiopia these past two years. I miss her like crazy!

    I pretty much see most of my family as they live close by. The only one who is further is my brother and his family so that is who I would choose.

    My parents. It has been at least 5 years since we’ve together for Christmas. We’ve been separated by oceans or continents 15 or so years of the past 20. I miss them!

    I will this year, because my aunt from Italy will come and visit and I haven’t seen her for years!!

  • 375
    priscilla from CA says:

    I live on the west coast of the U.S. and my four sisters live on the east coast. Although we all get together at least once a year, it would be nice if we could be together for Christmas. The laughs never stop…..

  • 376
    Natalie Winterstein says:

    My grandma. We haven’t had a Christmas together since I was a toddler. She’s always been out of state, far away and I know she probably doesn’t have many Christmases left.

    My aunt who is about to enter assisted living and she is 88 so seeing her for the holidays would mean a lot to me.

    Sandy Vincent says:

    I would love to have all my kids (one in New York, one in Oklahoma, one in Washington) AND my parents and sister (they live in California) and my husband and I (in Washington) together for one big, happy Christmas! We have not all been together like that for many, many years. My folks are in their 80’s, so our time with them is precious, and I would love to have Christmas all together one more time.

    Our son who is on his 4th tour in Afghanistan – in the last 6 years we have only been able to celebrate the holidays with him once because he always gets deployed right before the holidays.

    Yvonne S. says:

    My Aunt Shirley who now lives in Heaven. She simply ADORED Christmas! She decorated every nook and cranny in her home and made sure there was always a table full of home made cookies and other goodies for anyone that may drop by. The Christmas spirit lived in her and she never let the busyness of the season get in the way!

  • 383
    Patricia F. says:

    I am from a family of 6 girls. We were all very close. Sadly the oldest & youngest have passed away. The 4 of us remaining are scattered with our own families & grandchildren. I would love to share the holidays with my sisters. We have such wonderful memories of Christmas past. We lost our beloved Mother a year ago yesterday so to spend Christmas with them would truly be a blessing.

  • 385
    Michele W says:

    My parents. Dad is 95 and Mom is 87. Because of my own health issues I don’t get to see them much. Sometimes once a year and sometimes not even that often. I’ve missed the last couple Christmases with them and would give almost anything to be home with them this year and with the rest of my large family.

  • 386

    All of my family is close by, except my mom who passed away about 5-1/2 years ago. I know she is looking down on us from Heaven.

  • 388
    Kelly says:

    It would be hard for me to pick one person. All of our family lives in another country. If we could I would like to go there to be with them for Christmas. We don’t get much winter here and it would be fun for my kids to experience some of the outdoor activities I enjoyed with my family when I was a child.

  • 389
    Kathy Falk says:

    I would visit my son in the DC area. I know what it feels like to be the one to always come home rather than have someone come to your home. You know these folks, the road to your house is twice as far as the road from your house to their’s.

  • 390
    Kara says:

    My parents live far away, but my dad works for an airline so they come to visit us frequently. But, it would be nice to go “home” for Christmas again.

  • 391
    dictionary says:

    Fortunately for me, all my loved ones live within a few hours. The person who is farthest is only my Father In Law. He is about the most strongest person I know. After losing both his daughters, his wife and both his brothers he still finds the courage to go on with life. This will be his first Christmas without his wife so if I could I would spend it with him to let him know how much he is loved and cared about.

    I would love to spend the holidays with my in-laws (believe-it-or-not lol!) who just moved out of state at the end of October.

    I would choose my son. Because of his work, I rarely see him over any of the holidays and now that he has a little one, it makes me want to be with them even more.

  • 406

    It would definitely be our dear friends since all my family live close by. I would love to see them since they are alone this Christmas to.

  • 407

    That’s easy! It would have to be my niece Shea! Her family stays in Chicago for the holidays. Shea is funny and is my shadow when she visits. What more can you ask for!

  • 408
    Cathy Yamashita says:

    I would choose my “baby brother”, who lives in Tuscon. We used to be so close. . . and now he’s so far away. I miss him.

  • 409
    Anne B says:

    I’d love to spend Christmas with my brother, sister-in-law and 2 year old niece who live in the UK. The time I spent with my niece earlier in the year was so precious. But sadly I don’t think we’ll get together for another year.

  • 410
    Julia L. says:

    I don’t really have any family that are far away that I would want to spend the holidays with. The person that immediately comes to mind is my mom who passed away almost 6 years ago. I miss her so much!

  • 414
    Donna M. says:

    Easy- my son & his family in Illinois. I’m going in January, but it’s not quite the same as spending the holiday with the grandkids. It’s tough to be so far away.

  • 415
    Patty J says:

    My parents are only 450 miles away, but winter travel means we usually don’t get there every Christmas. I would want to spend Christmas with them, knowing how short and precious life can be.

  • 416
    Oreet says:

    Most of my extended family lives in Israel, which means we are low in numbers for the holidays. I would want to spend it with my cousin, whom I adore and have always been close to…in fact, we were born in the same year and are only 4 days apart!

  • 417

    My parents, of course. They are over 1,000 miles away. I miss the holidays when everyone went to their house with a mass of confusion. This year will be our first alone…yikes…the kids will be with their in-laws.

    My husband and I live in Colorado while our 3 children and their families are in California and New Jersey. Every year we travel to one coast at Thanksgiving and the other one for the Christmas holiday. This year we head out to California. If I had a wish, it would be for our daughter in New Jersey to join us in California so the whole family could be together!

  • 422

    I am so blessed that my family is close. To bring my husband’s family together would take more logistics. It would be a fun treat to pull off.

    I would love to spend the holidays with my parents and siblings in Utah. It’s only happened once in the past twenty years! I’d want my husband and kids to go with me though. 🙂

    Sarah A says:

    For the first time in years, my immediate family all live close to each other, which makes for a wonderful Holiday season this year! But with the relocation of some of us, we’re not close to my aunt and uncle, who happen to also be my godparents. My aunt has Alzheimer’s, and bringing her to us would be too confusing for her, but we also need to be careful about not all descending on her at once, or her anxiety goes up. I guess I wish that all 10 of us could go see them and rotate sitting down with Aunt Ann to talk to her and try to recapture her memories.

    Janet Sisk says:

    My sister! I live in Michigan and she lives in Texas. We used to see each other at Christmas with the rest of the family, but now she has grandkids. Her son works as a fireman and is the low man on the totem pole and always has to work at Christmas. She wants to see her grandkids on Christmas Day so they stay in TX now for the holidays. I’m bummed but totally understand. It would be fun to surprise her for a visit. 😀 Thanks for a chance to win.

    I am blessed to have my family nearby…..if I could just visit my mommy in heaven I’d go there! But we now have my mother-in-law near so that’s a great replacement!

    Stephanie says:

    My mother-in-law. We have not been able to spend a Christmas with her for 4 years. She now lives in Maryland while we are in Missouri. The weather usually doesn’t allow us to make a trip to the mountains nor does my husband’s job permit him to have more than a few days off during the Christmas season.

    It’s not sad…when I read the question I immediately thought how I’d like to spend one more day with my mom or dad. They’re gone but if heaven isn’t too far away for a one day visit….I’d like to go! Merry Christmas to all who share their awesome talent with us!

    Most all of our loved ones, both family and friends that are like family, live far away and all over the country. My greatest wish would be to have all of them around here for the holidays, coming and going and meeting each other.

  • 493

    Already excited to spend it with family from Hawaii – they are coming to visit, with my new niece they adopted a couple months ago from China – this will be our first time meeting her! I think that qualifies as from far away!!!

  • 494

    That would most definitely be my dad 🙂

  • 495

    I would chose to visit my “other me”, and that’d be my soul sister in the US. We’ve not seen each other face to face for 10 years and I miss her so badly – especially during Christmastime. I’d bring my family and we’d travel all the way from Sweden to Washington state, where my soul double lives with her family! (Our kids and husbands have never even met!)
    Happily we live at a time when Skype is invented, but it would be a wonderful experience to actually travel to meet for real.
    One day we’ll go, but for this Christmas I hope we will be able to make a loooong Skype session!

  • 496
    Ty's Mom says:

    I’d choose my cousin Lenny. He has basically been the only positive male influence in my life, before I met my husband. I haven’t seen him since 2003 and he isn’t getting any younger. He has such a kind heart and nothing but positive things to say about everybody. Any time spent with him would be happy.

He lives in LA and we are in Central Pa, it has been three years since we have had him home for Christmas, and while I do know others have gone longer without seeing their loved ones, I simply can not wait to pick him up at the airport! I will cherish each moment we have together, it is life’s simple pleasures that mean the most to me!

    I would like to wish you all a very happy holiday season, filled with what is most important to you!

    Our family gathers for snacks on Christmas Eve and then all 13 of us go to church together for the candle light service. After the service we head back to our house to open presents. We also get together on Christmas Day for dinner. It is such a blessing from our Lord Jesus Chris that he came into this world to save us from our sins and that is truly what we celebrate.

  • 510

    We have a big family and used to always spend Christmas day together, but now that my nieces and nephews and my own children have grown up and have significant others all of us getting together for the holidays is a huge task. Wi8sh we could easily spent Christmas together.

    I would love to spend the holidays with my grandfather, who lives overseas in India.

    I would love to spend the holidays with our best friends in Indiana. We did it the year my mom died so that our Christmas wouldn’t seem so sad and lonely. It was perfect. We had a beautiful white Christmas up there (we live in TX), we sledded, built *real* tall snowmen, played games, watched movies, and just made such good memories. I still think back so fondly on those days.
    We have tried twice to do it again but it hasn’t worked out. We hope it will before the kids graduate high school!

    Connie S says:

    I can’t pick just one person, it would have to be to have my immediate family all in one place for Christmas. My mom passed away when she was only 54 from lung cancer that metastasized to a brain tumor. Before she passed away, there was no question where everyone would be for Christmas. Together! At my parents home! We looked forward to it every year and did everything and anything to get there. I miss those Christmas’ with all my heart. The last time we were all together for Christmas was 15 years ago. Now we are spread out all over the country and it’s just not the same anymore. I would love for all of us to be together for one Christmas, back home in Wisconsin. This year my husband took a job as a traveling RN, so this Christmas we are in AZ, my dad is in FL, our son is in CA, one sister is in MN and the other is still in WI. There just isn’t a substitution for family and being together for Christmas! So I’m taking the reigns starting next year. I’ve been saving for quite some time and next year I am flying everyone to be with us, where ever that may be. I wish it would be back home but it isn’t about the place, it’s about the people you share it with.♥♥♥It will be the best Christmas in many, many years♥♥♥ Happy Holidays everyone!

    My family is all near by. But I would hope that everyone could attend, and not be worried about the hustle and the bustle. Ideally everyone would be together, extended family and all.

    My sister, in Texas, does not get to get home during the holidays. We’ve gone there once, and she’s made it home a few times.

    That’s easy – I’d spend the holidays with my parents, who live in Florida since we live in Iowa. There’s several reasons why. We love spending time with them and always have lots of fun.

    I would give anything to spend Christmas with my sister and brother – it seems like forever since we have spent Christmas together. Everyone has their own family, and it makes it hard to work around everyone’s schedule.

She is a friend to all and a surrogate mother to those of us in the family who no longer have our mothers with us. She is such a wonderful role model!

  • 683
    Laurie M says:

    I would go to see my sister in law because she lives on the opposite side of the world, but I would have to bring all my family who live in my own country because I can’t imagine spending the holidays without them…
