Writer's Block: Stardust memories

What is the your most cherished holiday memory from childhood, and why?

For Christmas 1982 my brother Tom got a dog for Christmas and my mother got a TRS-80. Over the years both of these treasures would become to some extent "mine" and bring me years and years of happiness. I've now been a computer geek for almost 30 years, going through BASIC, DOS, UNIX, Windows, Mac, on and on. Meanwhile I am a huge dog-lover and a lover of any kind of animals, including "icky" ones. To this day I count Taffy as among the great loves of my life. So that was a FORTUITOUS Christmas!
