The holidays have always been one of my favorite times of the year.
Growing up we would celebrate Hanukkah by lighting the candles, exchanging gifts, and taking family trips. I remember several years lighting the candles at home, then at Disney World, and a few times even while skiing in the northeast. Those are fond memories. However, the memories that stick out the most are the years spent with my Mom, Grandpa Ralph and Trudy.
One of my greatest childhood holiday memories with them is the first time I saw it snow. For a kid from Florida who loves to snowboard and ski, when I think about snow it reminds me of those memories and always brings a smile to my face!
